Music Video[edit]

Prince Markie Dee's "Uncle Frederick" has died, and his lawyer meets the group outside the Nightmare on Elm Street house. The lawyer informs Markie that he must spend the night inside Uncle Frederick's home to earn his inheritance, so the group enters, and not long after Freddy Krueger appears and begins to chase the band throughout the house slashing with his claw while stopping to rap.[3]
