"If the Video Music Awards had existed in 1983, MTV would have had to practically create a category just for the culture-dominating ingeniousness of "Thriller." It's little wonder that the video was up for several VMAs even a year later when the awards show kicked off. And almost 30 years after the MJ's epic horror-movie-style ghouls and zombies grooved and paraded into the hearts of music lovers, it's still tops with Billboard.com's voters, capturing a whopping 65% of the vote in our poll. He's not just the King of Pop, he's the king of music videos, too".

1. Thriller - Michael Jackson
2.Like a Prayer- Madonna
