Week two! This playlist is to accompany the Grindhouse/Punk/Bleeding Edge movie recommendations you can find here. This list should be listened to in order to get you through the storm.
I was a Teenage Werewolf – The Cramps – The Cramps are the champs. You need horror rock and roll, this is the source.
Triple Hexxx Curse – Kreeps – Horror, surfy, grimy, rock and roll heaven started with the Cramps, but its alive and well and nobody holds the title better than Dom Kreep and his venerable KREEPS.
Dark Days – DJ Shadow – This theme music for an excellent documentary makes for irrefutably moody atmosphere. Timeless and visceral, like Halloween was meant to be.
The World Ender – Lord Huron – Hipped to this song by Incroyable. Perfect anthem for flying head first into the storm, and never looking back.
It’s the Mummy – The Chimps – Have you seen MAD MONSTER PARTY? HAVE YOU SEEN MAD MONSTER PARTY??? Also in steady rotation in the Peculiar Pretzelmen tour van.
My Body’s a Zombie for you – Dead Man’s Bones – I was skeptical, but this song will get right under your skin and never leave. Also apparently this is a Ryan Gosling related project … so bonus. Special shout out to Ken “RABBIT FOOT” Long, too.
Monster Mash – Bobby Boris Pickett – Go ahead I dare you to act like you don’t get psyched when this shit kicks off this time of year.
Werewolf Bar Mitvah – 30 Rock – Once you get the giggles its best to just run with it.
Don’t Look in the Freezer – Doctor and the Crippens – Incroyable heard this song forever ago and never quite got it out of his head. So now he’s trying to inflict the rest of us.
Halloween – Misfits – YEAR OF THE MISFITS EVERYBODY. DON’T FRONT
Pet Sematary – Ramones – Hey I don’t want to be buried in a Pet Sematary (sic) either.
Dead Hate the Living – Peculiar Pretzelmen – Incroyable has the keys to the weird voodoo war sound castle. (ALSO MY HEART)
