LIMBS took some time to put together a Halloween themed playlist for the site. Check out their song selections and what they have to say about them.
Fleet Foxes – “The Shrine / An Argument”
Josh: Fleet Foxes is one of my favorite bands, especially around the fall time. 3/4 of the song is normal, but the ending takes a weird, dark turn. The music video for this song is really eerie as well and it fits the Halloween vibe for sure.
Misfits – “Astro Zombies”
Daniel: You gotta listen to the Misfits at least once during October. It’s a tradition of mine to cycle through their whole discography every fall season. This is one of my personal favorites.
Ozzy Osborne – “Mr. Crowley”
Tyler: I chose Mr. Crowley for the playlist because of the back story behind the character. Mr. Crowley, other known as Aleister Crowley was thought to be the “most wicked man in the world” in the early 20th century. Crowley gained a lot of his “darker” reputation from dabbling in satanic worship, and drug experimenting. I thought it would be a very fitting song to add to this playlist.
Michael Jackson – “Thriller”
Jordan: I feel like this song really speaks for itself. I honestly cannot think of a more iconic song to reference for the Halloween season.
Jeff Richmond – “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah (feat. Tracy Morgan & Donald Glover)”
Chris: This song helps make up for the insane amount of horrible Halloween-themed songs that exist. 30 Rock is also a good show.
The Dillinger Escape Plan – “Sunshine the Werewolf”
Josh: This was one of the first songs that really got me into TDEP. And it fits the Halloween feel because, well…it’s Dillinger.
Opeth – “Harvest”
Daniel: Opeth has a massive discography and I love every single one of their records. This song in particular has a very ‘fall’ feel to it.
CKY – “Escape from Hellview”
Tyler: I picked this song because the riff is gnarly, the song has this creepy haunting vibe/lyrics, and it reminds me of Tony Hawk Pro Skater. Now go get a slushie.
blink-182 – “I Miss You”
Jordan: [insert cliché statement about blink first inspiring me to play guitar]. Also vibe the Nightmare Before Christmas references – channel your inner scene kid.
Every Time I Die – “We’rewolf”
Chris: This entire record slams. I think it may be my favorite ETID record out currently. This track, specifically, is perfect for Halloween.
Isis (the band) – “Celestial (The Tower)”
Josh: Isis is one of the best heavy bands ever, hands down. I think this song fits the Halloween vibe perfectly. The screeching guitar, dark heavy howls in the background and massive riffs are flawless. This whole album is perfect for the fall/Halloween time.
Nine Inch Nails – “She’s Gone Away”
Daniel: Not only is this song dark and SO good, but it’s also featured in the new season of Twin Peaks. Trent Reznor can do no wrong.
Calabrese – “Voices of the Dead”
Tyler: When, you know you have no friends, you listen to the dead…’ Need I say more? Gnarly horror punk band that rips.
Jace Everett – “Bad Things”
Jordan: This song is eerie and lecherous…like a lot of modern-day Halloween themes. I think this song may have been used on a television show or something.
Radiohead – “Creep”
Chris: Great song.
