Look no further than the new music vids from Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Peter Bjorn and John for evidence that Michael Jackson is back.

Exhibit A: For the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' new video for dancefloor-filler "Heads Will Roll," the band does its usual, our-hipness-runneth-over thing (Ms. O rocks a Ziggy Stardust's girlfriend get-up, Nick Zinner plays a lighty-uppy synthesizer). But things take a Jacko twist when a double-jointed werewolf with serious "Billie Jean" moves takes center stage. It's all very Footloose finale until he turns on the crowd and a confetti-filled massacre ensues. Spoiler alert: Even when she's torn limb from limb, Karen O can still close the deal.Watch here:

Exhibit B: Peter Bjorn and John's video for "It Don't Move Me" sees a father-son duo bond over a shared love of "Thriller" video choreography. But it's not all feel-good and Flashdance-type training sequences: Things get sinister (in a David Lynch kind of way) when Dad starts hitting golf balls at his son and later their car bursts into flames.Don't: Ask us to explain exactly what happened. Do: Watch this video:
