Halloween Extravaganza: The children of the night. What music they make.
Welcome to October! This month (my favourite month) we’re going to celebrate Halloween (my favourite holiday) while some of us, at least, enjoy gorgeous autumn weather (my favourite season, though I hate being cold). What better way to kick it off than with Wing’s Werewolf Playlist (at least as of this very moment).
I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite werewolf (or werewolf adjacent) music? Note: I interpret “werewolf adjacent” fairly loosely; mostly, if it makes me think of werewolves, it’ll probably make a werewolf playlist at some point. For the most part, I’ve only included one version, though for more than a couple, I love many, many cover versions, but I couldn’t help make one exception.
Tell me your favourite werewolf or monster or horror songs in the comments.
Amanda Siefried – Little Red Riding Hood (cover)
Blind Black – Black Dog Blues
Bowling for Soup – Little Red Riding Hood (cover)
The Pack A.D. – Wolves and Werewolves
Rainbow – Run with the Wolf
Robert Johnson – Hellhound on My Trail
Shakira – She Wolf
Skillet – Monster
I listened to Skillet’s music for a long damn time before I learned they’re a Christian rock band. Let me tell you, Christian rock has changed a hell of a lot since I was a kid!
Thea Gilmore – Bad Moon Rising (cover)
Type O Negative – Wolf Moon (live)
Warren Zevon – Werewolves of London (live)
I would add Blue Moon, because it’s the song that plays during the werewolf transformation in American Werewolf in London, so every time I hear it that’s all I can picture!
That’s a great addition!
“Someone’s in the Wolf” – Queens of the Stone Age
“Bad Moon Rising” – Rasputina’s cover version
“Dangerous Animals” – Arctic Monkeys
“Man Or Animal” – Audioslave
“Animal” – Prick
“She-Wolf” – Megadeth
“Of Wolf and Man” – Metallica
Excellent choices. I think I’ll have to do a second list at the end of the month with all of everyone else’s suggestions.
