13 Killer Rock n Roll Halloween Songs

Halloween is by far the best time of the year. You are allowed, if not pretty much expected, to misbehave. Kids (dressed as the monsters that they are) go door to door begging for candy. If they are not appeased, they will t.p. your yard. Guys take their girlfriends to haunted houses in the hopes that adrenaline works as an aphrodisiac. Chicks use Halloween as an excuse to dress as slutty versions of everything from nuns to Harry Potter. Halloween is not complete without a kick ass Halloween party. Where else would guys try to get girls inebriated in the hopes of playing doctor with a sexy nurse? A successful Halloween party is not complete without an awesome play list. No “Monster Mash” here. Just Rock n Roll Halloween party songs…

Black No.1 by Type O Negative – All guys have a thing for evil women (as illustrated in this song and the following two). You never know what she will pull out of her bag of magic tricks…

Witchy Woman by The Eagles – This Witchy Woman “can rock you in the nighttime til your skin turns red.”

Black Magic Woman by Carlos Santana – This Black Magic Woman “just might wake up your magic stick.”

Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon – Apparently werewolves like Chinese food as much as the next guy.

I’m Your Boogie Man by White Zombie – I would rather have this Boogie Man on my bed instead of under it.

Psycho Killer by Talking Heads – This dude is definitely psycho. He can’t decide whether he’s English or French.

I Put a Spell on You by Screamin Jay Hawkins (Marilyn Manson’s Version) -This guy became the “Psycho Killer”.

Trick or Treat by Fastway -The guy in the last song put a spell on the guy in this song. That’s gay.

Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) by David Bowie – This is a song about the female “Psycho Killer”.

Halloween by The Misfits – Glenn Danzing must have grown up on the wrong side of town.

Dead Man’s Party by Oingo Boingo – Wow, that sounds like a real “lively” party.

Feed My Frankenstein by Alice Cooper – “Fur tea cup”? No comment.

This is Thirteen by Anvil – Last, but not least…

Halloween 2010 Bonus Tracks

This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson – Yep, this is Manson covering The Nightmare Before Christmas theme song.

Halloween by Siouxsie and the Banshees – Time to add a proper “Goth” tune to the mix.

I know that I am missing plenty of “Dark” and “Demonic” heavy metal staples. Feel free to add to my list. I hope that I have given hosts and hostesses a good start. Now, go be BAD…

Speaking of being BAD, head over to HD Music Videos Online to watch the Micheal Jackson’s Thriller video in high definition. This should help you get in the mood for Halloween.
