31 Nights of Horror VI, Night 30: Your 2017 Halloween Playlist

Goblins and ghouls, here’s your official 2017 Halloween playlist:

  1. “In a gadda da vida” – Iron Butterfly. Creepy by itself, iconic when Jessica Lange dances.


2. “Red Right Hand” – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Because, obviously. Also fantastic in Scream.

3. “Country Death Song” – Violent Femmes. As described here.

4. “Skully Gully” – Bobby “Boris” Pickett. A fantastic and cool alternative to the Monster Mash.

5. “Demons” – Sleigh Bells. Because you need a song where you take a bunch of shots.

6. “I Fink You Freeky” – Die Antwoord. Because after you take a bunch of shots, you’re gonna wanna dance.

7. “Evil” – Interpol. The classic romance between two serial killers, Fred and Rosemary West.

8. “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah” – 30 Rock. A good breather to catch a laugh.

9. “Call of the Zombie” followed by “Superbeast” – Rob Zombie. This shit scared me so much when I was 12.

10. “Disintegration” – Monarchy. Because you need to dance again. It’s best if you’re able to play the video while the song plays because WOW Dita Von Teese.

11. “Heads Will Roll” – Yeah Yeah Yeahs (A-Trax Remix). Let’s keep dancing!!

12. “Time Warp” – Rocky Horror Picture Show. The original and nothing else.

13. “Pet Sematary” – Ramones. Because the Ramones are always cool.

14. “Boogie Monster” – Gnarls Barkley. As described here.

15. “Purple People Eater” – George Thorogood. The happiest George Thorogood has ever sounded.

16. “This is Halloween” – A Nightmare Before Christmas. Classic. Marilyn Manson or movie version, you can’t go wrong.

17. “Hell” – Squirrel Nut Zippers. Remember when swing dancing and zoot suits were a thing in the 90s?

18. “Dracula’s Wedding” – Outkast. Spooky, cool jam.

19. “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” – Napoleon XIV. Trippy video.

20. “In Heaven, Everything is Fine” – Eraserhead Soundtrack. You’ve got your good friends, and I’ve got mine.

21. “Disturbia” – Rihanna. Close the party with this banger.
