Dead Man’s Party vs. Thriller: Which Is The Better Halloween Music Video?

Many fans consider Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as one of the best Halloween music videos of all-time. However, this morning, Gary Bryan may have found one music video that could rival the King of Pop; Oingo Boingo’s video for “Dead Man’s Party.”

What's the better music video

So we decided to pit these two videos up against each other and let the listeners decide which one is better. Take a look at the two music videos below:

Oingo Boingo’s “Dead Man’s Party”

The video starts out with claymation skeletons having, what else, a party before launching into footage of Oingo Boingo performing the song at a college party. The song, most well-known for being featured in the Rodney Dangerfield film/soundtrack Back to School in 1986, also features clips from the movie (including cameos from a young Robert Downey Jr.).

Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”

MJ’s groundbreaking video was more of a cinematic short featuring the King of Pop turning into a werewolf and frightening zombies taking over the street with the now-iconic “Thriller” dance.

Now tell us which one you think is better in the poll below!
