The creepy film, in which the late singer is transformed into both a werewolf and a zombie, narrowly beat Lady Gaga's raunchy Telephone in the poll.

Another vintage promo, Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, which dates back to 1975, was third in the vote by musicians' website musicradar.com.

Thriller, made by John Landis, the director of An American Werewolf In London, is credited with turning pop videos into an art form of their own.

The top 10:

1. Michael Jackson - Thriller

2. Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce - Telephone

3. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

4. Johnny Cash - Hurt

5. Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer

6. Aphex Twin - Windowlicker

7. The Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up

8. Beastie Boys - Sabotage

9. Foo Fighters - Everlong

10. Nirvana - Heart Shaped Box
