"Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)" is a single by American gothic metal band Type O Negative from their 1993 album Bloody Kisses. The lyrics detail a relationship with a woman involved with the Goth subculture, and throws many tongue-in-cheek references to Halloween, Nosferatu, and Lily Munster.
A music video was made for the song, using a radio edit of about four and a half minutes in length as opposed to the eleven-minute recording on the album. The video was recorded in black and white, with the exception during the breakdown where Peter Steele's eyes appear olive green during a close-up. Close-ups surrounded by shadows alternate with shots of the band performing in a decidedly traditional-looking concert hall, with gothic figures dancing in the background as the band plays classical or acoustic counterparts to their usual instruments; Steele takes advantage of his formidable height during this and plays a double bass as if it were a bass guitar.
