NME's list of best music videos doesn't include Michael Jackson's Thriller?!?

Michael Jackson's ThrillerTo celebrate the launch of, the British music magazine NME has compiled a list of the 100 greatest music videos of all time. And I can say this will all honesty: Worst list ever.

For starters, the only Michael Jackson video on the list is Billie Jean ... at No. 100. Also missing a-Ha's Take On Me, Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer, Money for Nothing by Dire Straits. Basically every music video that CREATED THE GENRE.

And seriously ... Billie Jean? So completely overrated. Forget "No taxation without representation!" This list means war, Britain. We'll start with dumping copies of NME into Boston Harbor. Followed by the Gallagher brothers.

If you really care (and you shouldn't), here are NME's Top 10 picks: 

10. The Prodigy – Smack My B---h Up

9. Sigur Rós – Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása

8. Beastie Boys – Sabotage

7. Weezer – Buddy Holly

6. Foo Fighters – Everlong

5. Bjork – All Is Full Of Love

4. Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun

3. Chris Isaak – Wicked Game

2. Radiohead – Just

1. Johnny Cash – Hurt
