Duran Duran's ‘Rio’ has been named the greatest music video of all time.

The 1982 video, featuring the band in suits on a Caribbean beach being teased by scantily-clad women, beat favourites like Michael Jackson's ‘Thriller’ and Madonna's ‘Like a Prayer’ to claim the title.

Bjork's video for her 1999 hit ‘All Is Full of Love’, where she played a robot in a steamy clinch with another robot, took second place.

‘Take On Me,’ the 1985 video from A-ha, where singer Morten Harket was a comic book character who comes to life, was third, followed by Jackson's famously spooky 1983 hit ‘Thriller’.

Icelandic group Sigur Ros's surreal video for ‘Svefn-g-Englar’ was fifth in the poll of MTV viewers, followed by the anarchic gig scene in Nirvana's ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ (1991).

Radiohead's ‘Just’ video (1995), featuring a man inexplicably lying down in the street and Jamiroquai's ‘Virtual Insanity’ (1996), where he danced on a moving floor, were next.

The top ten was completed by Madonna's ‘Like A Prayer’ (1989), controversial for featuring burning crosses, statues weeping blood and the singer seducing a black Jesus, and US group OK GO's ‘Here It Goes Again’ (2006), with the band on treadmills.

Around 40,000 MTV viewers voted for the poll. and the results will be broadcast on Sunday at 7pm on MTV Two and other MTV channels.
