Music: Bob Dylan is The Ghost of Tom Petty’s Christmas Future

  • Tom Petty, 1985 Until today, we were sure that this was the creepiest good music video ever made. This “Alice in Wonderland” riff made Petty – before now somewhat of a standard-issue trad-rocker – into something vaguely sinister. Which is why it rules.

  • Bob Dylan, 2009 Same mad hatter pose, more Christmas. More scary. Less Alice getting cut up into little pieces for the band to eat. Same hat and haircut. More beard that makes Bob look like a weird guy.  We’re curious who Tom Petty’s Ghost of Christmas Past is.
