OK Go, Britney Spears, a-ha, Johnny Cash, Queen, Bestie Boys and Fatboy Slim also have their names appear on the list.


Michael Jackson's creepy "Thriller" video has been voted the most influential promo in the history of pop music. The 14-minute clip for the singer's hit 1983 track, long credited with merging music with filmmaking, scored 15.2 per cent of the votes in the poll, conducted by social networking site MySpace.com.

"Thriller" saw off competition from OK Go's homemade video for their song "Here It Goes Again", which became a viral hit in 2006 as fans logged online to see the group dancing on treadmills. Britney Spears' music video for her debut single "...Baby One More Time" was voted third, while a-ha's "Take on Me" and Johnny Cash's "Hurt" rounded out the top five.

The other videos appearing on the list are "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Queen, "Around the World" from Daft Punk and "Weapon of Choice" from Fatboy Slim among others.

The top 10 influential pop music videos are as follows:

  1. "Thriller" - Michael Jackson
