Rock duo -- and real-life couple -- Matt and Kim get down, dirty and bloody, unleashing their truly cringe-worthy angst by forcing fans to hold their breaths until the surprising end. They say they were "in pain for a week after this shoot, but it was so awesome to make." Crazy kids!

Moz let the professionals do the fighting when he dropped the video for 'Boxers' to promote his 1995 tour of the same name. The cinematic black-and-white, slow-motion jabs and hooks in the ring were an obvious nod to Martin Scorsese's 'Raging Bull.' Morrissey's leading man is none other but his favorite fighter, British super-middleweight champion Cornelius Carr.

A public restroom is really not an appropriate place for unsolicited job pitches and honestly, you're crazy to be messing with someone with giant hands, but alas ... Predating Michel Gondry's giant hands in the 'The Science of Sleep,' Luda resolves this irritating situation with a beat-down of comical proportions. The dude should have known better.

Inviting Jay Reatard and his band to entertain children at birthday parties is a bad idea, as evidenced by this 2009 clip -- unless you want your herd of precious little snowflakes turning into a mob of food-throwing, water balloon-launching, clown-beating rascals. It's an all-out mutiny!

During the song's intermission, Mariah and her man-stealing, evil doppelganger square off in the bathroom. It's Mariah vs. Mariah with a kick and a punch and a meow! To make things weirder, her boyfriend hangs back in the theater, watching 'Grease' ... also starring Mariah. Weirder yet, Mariah sings about taking him back. What a softy.

Speaking of girl fights, this one's ferocious! CSS's Brazilian darlings don posh dresses to tear each other to shreds amidst flying glitter -- all to the tune of their 2006 single 'Alala.' And best of all, the damage is in rewind thanks to some stop-motion magic.

Twisted Sister's Dee Snider comes to the rescue of a young rock-'n'-roll rebel who dared blare the gender-bending band's 1984 anthem. When his tyrant dad objects, he gets his butt tossed out the window, down the stairs and all around the house, all while he trembles in fear. Once and for all, this proves that conservative dads can meet their match in dudes with long hair, tight tights and furious blue eyeshadow.

The King of Pop wins this one with his classic '80s video that just can't be, well, beat. Featuring an iconic knife fight and 80 genuine gang members, it really makes us wish for that utopian world where all violent tension is be resolved in a dance-off of synchronized steps and thrusts with the occasional "hee-hee!" thrown in for good measure.
