Most great events have epic soundtracks. You know when you hear “that” song you immediately know where you were when you heard it for the first time? Or its the theme to your favorite time of year. Well, Halloween is no different and our resident musical, Ryan Cadaver, has compiled his Halloween playlist!
King Diamond- Halloween
My absolute favorite Halloween song. King Diamond is always spooky, but this song really captures the spirit of the season. Nothing says Halloween like shredding guitars with haunting falsetto vocals.
The Misfits- Halloween
The ultimate punk rock song about Halloween.
Bobby Pickett- Monster Mash
You can’t mess with a classic. I suggest listening to this throughout the entire month of October on repeat.
Grim Grinning Ghost
The frightfully catchy theme song from the classic Disney ride “The Haunted Mansion”. Just beware of hitchhiking ghosts!
Type O Negative- All Hallows Eve
This one starts out kind of slow but it quickly builds into a powerful chorus that can always give me chills around this time of year.
The Nightmare Before Christmas- This is Halloween
The spooky classic from the citizens of Halloween Town. Everyone loves this one, especially this time of year.
John Carpenter- Halloween II Theme
Honestly the theme from part 1 or 2 would work for your playlist; I just prefer 2.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show- Time Warp
If you are having a Halloween party and you do not play the “Time Warp” everyone is going to be disappointed. That is a fact.
Thrashy power metal about our favorite time of year? Count me in! I don’t really understand why it takes over 13 minutes to tell us that “it is Halloween tonight” but whatever.
The Casket Creatures- Devils Day
This is my bands tribute to the holiday and the lifestyle. Every night is Halloween!
Tell us your favorites!
