Do you need help with making a playlist to get in the spirit of Halloween or for your socially distance gathering? Here are some bands that fit the Halloween theme based by their onstage appearance, music, lyrics and videos you can add to your playlist.
We have to kick it off with the original spookshow himself Mr. Black Eyes (aka Alice Cooper). With tracks like Welcome To My Nightmare, Feed My Frankenstein, I Love the Dead, how can you not have Alice Cooper on your Halloween playlist!?
Taking the spook to a whole new level is Rob Zombie. There isn’t a track from his discography that can’t easily fit in your Halloween playlist but if you need something to help kick it off you have to go with tracks like Dragula, Living Dead Girl or Superbeast. Plus he even dropped a new song today (The Triumph of a King Freak) that you can sneak in there as well!
If the Antichrist Superstar is not in your playlist then maybe our Christmas playlist will suit your fancy a little more later this year. Marilyn Manson is a must for any Halloween playlist and his cover of the Nightmare Before Christmas’s theme song “This is Halloween” best be on it!
I couldn’t tell you a year or even a Slipknot show I haven’t even seen anyone dressed up like a member of the band. After all they’ve marked their masks for Halloween. You can just put anything from Slipknot on and just hit play.
To some, the Misfits might be one of the ultimate Halloween bands on their playlist for this weekend. They even have a track called Halloween plus don’t forget other hits like Die Die My Darling, I Turned Into a Martian, Astro Zombies, Ghouls Night Out, Skulls and the list goes on…
A band that has made its name known over the last few years that will fit in your playlist perfectly is Ghost. Even when you go to their shows you’ll see people dressed up like members of the band now. Check out tracks like Square Hammer, Cirice or Dance Macabre which will surely get the dancing floor going.
Always entertaining the band GWAR is a must and if you’ve ever seen them live you know exactly what I am talking about. Throw some of their videos on your video wall and you’ll be entertained for hours! Hopefully there won’t be as much bloodshed at your part compared to one of their shows.
Another band with the horror based imagery is Motionless In White. Always with the dark theme they are more than deserving of your playlist and shouldn’t be missed. Tracks like Abigail, Eternally Yours or Immaculate Misconception among others will give off the perfect vibes for your playlist.
When you’re a metal band with horror movie themed lyrics and dress as characters from different horror movies onstage then its a no-brainer to add Ice Nine Kills to your Halloween playlist. Especially if you have a video wall. Their brutal videos will be perfect to set the mood at your socially distant gathering.
