Halloween is almost upon us. That pointless time of year where guys have an excuse to drink loads and girls attempt to make any Halloween costume slutty. Couldn’t find a good enough peg to include this on Northern Noise, so here’s a playlist of some scarily good and just plain scary tracks to get you in the trick or treating mood. Enjoy!
Arctic Monkeys – Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But…
With their latest record Suck It And See, these Sheffield lads have proven they know how to have a laugh. Here they are taking a bite out of the neck of every Arctic Monkeys nay-sayer out there.
Skrillex – Fist Of The Year (Equinox)
It’s a well known fact that kids are evil. Don’t believe us? Check out the nasty little nipper in this ace video by electro band Skrillex. Prepare to be creeped out.
Bobby “Boris” Pickett – Monster Mash
What? It’s a Halloween playlist! Did this honestly come as a surprise? Wherever you end up boozing this October 31st you can guarantee this cheesy tune will rear it’s ugly undead-head.
Ray Parker Jr – Ghostbusters
Who’ya gonna call? No Halloween is complete until you’ve downed a dangerous amount of booze and drunkenly danced to this classic theme tune. Whilst dressed like a knob. Obviously.
Converse feat. Souljaboy, Andrew WK, Matt and Kim – I’m a Goner
Is there a scarier setting for a music video than a morgue? How about a zombie filled morgue? Yank rapper Souljaboy teams up with dance punk duo Matt and Kim and expert screamer Andrew WK for this scary sing-along.
Thriller – Michael Jackson
MJ might be dead and gone but that’s not going to stop us from dusting off this creepy Halloween classic. So frightening, it was given an 18 rating on release. And that’s just for the acting.
Cher Lloyd – Swagger Jagger
Urgh. This one’s so bad it’s scary. Swagga Jagger is so dangerously catchy it’ll leave you reluctantly humming it for hours. Painful stuff. Basically, it’s the audio equivalent of a kick in the balls.
George Michael – Careless Whisper
Here’s a truly terrifying tune. Before George Michael spent his days smoking spliffs and getting arrested he actually use to make music. What? We didn’t say it was any good.
Alice Cooper – Feed my Frankenstein
Remember when painting you face, coating yourself in leather and pointing a whip at people didn’t make everyone think you were a gimp? Neither do we.
Marilyn Manson – This is Halloween
Marilyn Manson likes Halloween so much he wears his costume all year-round. Here he is snarling his way through this classic Nightmare Before Christmas number…
