Halloween is almost here! No doubt you’re probably tired of hearing your friend tell this COVID-themed holiday joke; “Your costume isn’t complete without a mask… A FACE MASK!” (Sigh).
Wearing a mask is definitely important when it comes to safe trick-or-treating, but so is Halloween music!
So, shrug off those quarantine ghosts and rock out to our list of 30 spooky songs to get you in the Halloween spirit!
1 Rihanna - Disturbia
What's most spooky about this video is the thought of recreating those dance moves. Anybody but RiRi would pull their back...
2 Blue Oyster Cult - (Don't Fear) The Reaper
If you plan on jamming to this classic, please do so responsibly... with plenty of cowbell.
3 Bobby "Boris" Pickett - Monster Mash
Word to the wise; be aware this song is in fact a "grave yard smash." A lot of friendships have ended due to a lack of consensus on this.
4 The Eagles - Witchy Woman
Oooooooooo..... WITCHY WOMAN!
5 Alice Cooper - Feed My Frankenstein
Only problem with this track is the lack of candy references. A lot of pizza and hamburger talk, but would it kill Alice to throw in a Charleston Chew reference?
6 Bow Wow Wow - I Want Candy
Was this music video shot on an iPhone 2?
7 Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters
Who you gonna call??
8 Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon
We recommend SPRINTING from home to home, demanding candy while blaring this from your 1990's boom box (OK, maybe don't do that).
9 Ministry - Everyday is Halloween
If every day was Halloween the dentist office would be packed!
10 The Black Keys - Howlin' For You
Watch out for werewolves!
11 AC/DC - Highway to Hell
This one goes out to all the houses handing out candy corn
12 Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
There's a lyric in this song, "I can't sleep because my bed is on fire." Why did you get in bed in the first place?!?
13 Billie Eilish - bury a friend
"Why aren't you scared of me...?" Who says we aren't?!?
14 Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me
Rockwell seemed confused by the fact people are watching him. Seems pretty simple. People are just super jelly of those sweet curls
15 Michael Jackson - Thriller
A song that fits into the rare category of being overshadowed by an even better music video.
16 Screaming Jay Hawkins - I Put a Spell on You
The drum beats are especially spooky on this track
17 Whodini - Freaks Come Out at Night
If by "freaks" they mean candy lovers, then we couldn't agree more!
18 DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - A Nightmare On My Street
This is a truly frightening music video. 1980's Will Smith turns the intensity level up from "G" to "PG-13"
19 Radiohead - Creep
If only Thom Yorke would tell us what's been bugging him for 20 + years... We suppose he's just a creep... a weirdo...
20 Stevie Wonder - Superstition
Can never go wrong with a classic Stevie track
21 Selena Gomez, Marshmello - Wolves
Take your Halloween experience to new levels with this sexy/spooky track.
22 Fifth Harmony - I'm In Love With a Monster
We're in love with these costumes!
23 The Cranberries - Zombie
The single's true meaning is far more scary than any zombie.
24 Lady Gaga - Monster
"THAT BOY IS A MONSTTTTTERRR!!!"
25 Shakira - She Wolf
The thought of Shakira morphing into a she wolf is equal parts scary and intriguing.
26 Warren Zevon - Werewolves Of London
We'll pay any dollar amount for a costume similar to the werewolf in this music video... Just lovely.
27 Iggy Azalea - Black Widow ft. Rita Ora
The Kill Bill costumes are enough to make this song a new Halloween classic.
28 Duran Duran - Hungry like the Wolf
Did we mention our hunger for candy?
29 M83 - Midnight City
Imagine having the superpowers of the kids in this music video. Do you know know how much candy you could pull in one night?
30 The Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil (Live)
Take us home, Mick!!
