Werewolves and vampires have been at each others' throats long before Twilight: New Moon
(opening tomorrow) had them making pouty duck-faces at one another. Thankfully, the tradition of the vampire and the werewolf in the art of the music video is a much richer one than the antics of the crybaby douchemobiles in the Twilight
series would suggest.
The Kills, "Black Balloon"
This video puts a gritty, almost documentary-style spin on the vampire, which is a refreshing change from the usual glam explosion that attends them. Even as dingy and strung-out as she looks, there isn't a man alive who wouldn't let Alison Mosshart suck on his jugular a while.
Clor, "Good Stuff"
Ah, there's nothing quite like a night-vision dance-off between a naked man and a werewolf. If only all those ridiculous "urban dance contest" movies ended with an angry mob hacking the contestants to bits, we'd be a lot more likely to watch them.
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, "She Said"
Jon Spencer portrays both vampire and werewolf in this erotic Gothic fantasy, featuring more freaky sexed-up nuns than you can shake a stick at. It also features a werewolf - vampiress showdown at the end, although frankly we don't understand how that vampire chick can resist Spencer's badass mutton chops.
