8. Marilyn Manson -- "Coma White" (1999)

Though this video doesn't feature any blood, and it's not even close to the craziest one by Manson (keep reading!), it features a reenactment of the JFK assassination, with Manson playing Kennedy. The video debuted in September 1999, just two months after the death of JFK Jr. If that wasn't bad enough, the country was still reeling from April's Columbine massacre, which many blamed on Manson's music. Damn.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
