Weird noise coming from BB/Chain

I haven't oiled in my chain in awhile which may be the cause. but I'm hearing a zipping sound as the chain moves. I just want to check and make sure its nothing serious.

I wouldnt say its lack of oiling your chain. I never lube my chains and dont get a sound like that. I start checking other things.
