Marilyn Manson has topped a Halloween-related online poll to find the 'Scariest Music Video' ever made, beating late King of Pop Michael Jackson's Thriller.

Editors of Billboard.com were so spooked by the rocker's 1999 promo for his cover of the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) that they picked the video as their most chilling.

"When he (Manson) donned a ballerina costume and cut himself, rode a pig and convulsed uncontrollably in the video... he really freaked people out," Contactmusic quoted them as saying.

The video beat Jackson's Thriller to the top spot.

Aphex Twin's Come To Daddy landed the third spot. Ozzy Osbourne's werewolf video for Bark At The Moon and Fever Ray's If I Had A Heart round out the top five.
