One whole month of Halloween bangers, coming right up.
The spooky season is upon us. We wait all year for this. Valentines day is lame. Christmas is fine. But we truly come alive for Halloween. Here's 12 spooky bangers to get you into the Halloween spirit.
01. 'IT'S ALMOST HALLOWEEN' - PANIC! AT THE DISCO
We're kicking this off the way we mean to continue. It's appropriate because it truly is almost Halloween.
Also, if like us you have many questions about this song and video, check out our interview about it with Spencer Smith over here.
02. 'BABY YOU'RE A HAUNTED HOUSE' - GERARD WAY
A new entry, but a worthy inclusion- Gerard Way's surprise Halloween single is spooky in the best way, and is destined to be a Halloween classic for years to come.
03. 'I MISS YOU' - BLINK-182
If you think this isn't technically a Halloween song, think again. Lyrical references to morgues and spiders? It's spooky. It also always deserves an honourable mention just for Tom Delonge whining “my ‘ead”.
04. 'THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE' - ICE NINE KILLS
It was hard to limit this to only one song from the upcoming Ice Nine Kills album 'The Silver Scream', in which literally every track from the album is based on a horror film. But 'The American Nightmare' takes the cake.
05. 'GHOSTBUSTERS (I'M NOT AFRAID)' - FALL OUT BOY
Who you gonna call? FALL OUT BOY!
06. 'VAMPIRES WILL NEVER HURT YOU' - MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
Sure, it's not technically a Halloween song, My Chemical Romance are inarguably the spookiest, most Halloween-aesthetic band in the scene. The band that famously said “let’s cover ourselves in blood” and literally wear costumes? They have Halloween running through their veins.
07. 'FOREVER HALLOWEEN' - THE MAINE
Will anything ever be as iconic as a band loving Halloween so much that they make an album called 'Forever Halloween'? No. Nothing will ever be as iconic.
08. 'THIS IS HALLOWEEN' - MARILYN MANSON
THIS IS HALLOWEEN. THIS IS HALLOWEEN.
09. 'DECODE' - PARAMORE
Yeah, we hear you- this isn't technically a Halloween song. We hear you. We do. But we'd also add that it appears on the Twilight soundtrack- a film about vampires. It's tangentially Halloween-related.
10. 'MESS' - REAL FRIENDS
Again, not a Halloween song necessarily, but the video is all about trick or treating on Halloween, so it gets a pass and an inclusion.
11. 'ZOMBIE HANDS' - THE KILLERS
Bless The Killers for their novelty, holiday-related singles.
12. 'HALLOWEEN' - AFI
This one is actually a Misfits cover, but the title of the song is right there. Couldn't possibly be more Halloween-y.
And there you have it. Let's get spooky.
