Creepy Music for Halloween, the Creepiest Holiday Ever!
But for those of us whose musical tastes vary wildly, I thought I'd throw together a beautifully random list of names that would make your Halloween quite enjoyable and festive. There are literally hundreds of artists who could make this list. But it's important to set limits. Be sure to write in your own personal faves for Halloween in the space generously provided by the technicians here at Yahoo Music. We're all about the service!
Halloween is a time for sharing. I'll let you have my candy corn if you'll give me your peanut butter cup! (Why does that sound so…dirty?)
10) My Bloody Valentine: Sure, you could find more obvious choices like Rob Zombie or Alice Cooper or KISS, for that matter, but not everyone likes to be hit over the head with such pandering. We get it, you're scary! I'd rather listen to Loveless at an unreasonable volume and lose what little hearing I have left. The album is like a heavily medicated maze that gets more confusing the longer you listen. I've fallen asleep to it and woken up and wondered where the hell I was. Add a black light and you will lose your mind!
9) The Black Angels: With a name derived from a Velvet Underground tune and a sound that takes us back to the days when psychedelic rock might have sounded like this had they had modern day recording effects and punk rock to reflect on, The Black Angels are the perfect creepy soundtrack for people who wish there was more sitar on records today! More cowbell? No, more sitar!
8) Venom: Considering they cut a 20-minute track called "At War With Satan" and feature tunes such as "In League With Satan," "Black Metal," "Buried Alive," "Raise the Dead," "Angel Dust" and "Welcome to Hell" in their extensive catalog and -- for good measure -- have an ugly goat head as their insignia, Venom are clearly the metallest of them all. No others need apply. Check them out! You may find them to be far more toe-tapping than you'd expect!
