Diffuser Top 10: Franz Ferdinand’s Gory ‘Evil Eye’ Slices Up the Competition

Franz Ferdinand Evil Eye

It took gallons of fake blood and a fat naked guy, but Franz Ferdinand have finally unseated the Killers as kings of our Diffuser Top 10 video countdown. The suave Scottish indie popsters claim the No. 1 spot with ‘Evil Eye,’ their homage to vintage slasher flickers, and two weeks after Halloween, this one’s evidently lost none of its relevance.

Brandon Flowers and his Vegas brethren hang on for second place, followed by MGMT and Paul McCartney, whose ‘Queenie Eye’ features Johnny Depp, who’s no stranger to ’80s horror movies. Rounding out the top 5 are those scruffy lads from Palma Violets and their excellent single ‘Rattlesnake Highway.’

Scroll down to see the full top 10, and if you don’t see your favorite video — or heck, even if you do — VOTE! Our next poll closes at 11AM EST on Friday, Nov. 15, and you’re allowed to cast ballots once an hour. The full list of 30 eligible videos is posted over on the right, and this week, and this week’s new entries include one from Yoko Ono, who still cuts quite the rug, despite her age.
