Here is a list of Halloween rock songs perfect for setting the mood at your party. You won’t find any overplayed classics here, just Halloween appropriate party songs that rock. Some mention witches or devils, some are closely related to scary movies, and some are just a bit creepy.
- Rock – Marilyn Manson – This Is Halloween
- Alternative Rock – All American Rejects – Real World
This song starts with an appropriately creepy introduction. It then proceeds to state unhappiness with the world and the direction it is taking.
- Avant-Garde – Laibach – God is God
This song is complete with a creepy intro, creepy lyrics and killer vocals. The intro sounds like the soundtrack to a battle scene from some sort of fantasy movie. The lyrics describe premonitions of seeing darkness and hell. To me, the sound of the vocals is reminiscent of bands such as Rammstein. This song was also featured on the ‘Blair Witch Project’ Soundtrack.
- Metal – Hydrovibe (featuring Shawnee Smith ) – Killer Inside
This song also featured on the Saw 3 soundtrack. It is perhaps one of the softest songs on this soundtrack, which is really more of a reflection of the other songs on the Saw 3 soundtrack. The lyrics seem to send of message of asking for help in a messed up world.
- Indie Rock – Bloc Party – Hunting For Witches
I admit the link between this song and Halloween is pretty slim. It is actually a song about the ‘war on terror’ and the London bombings of 2005. However, out of context, the chorus fits quite nicely as it is about ‘hunting for witches’. It is also a rocking song.
- Alternative Rock – Greenskeepers – Lotion
This amusing song pays homage to the fictitious serial killer from the movie Silence of The Lambs, Buffalo Bill. The famous line “It rubs the lotion on its skin” is featured in the chorus.
- Alternative Rock / Hip-Hop – Raggadeth – Dance With The Devil
The odds are pretty good that there will be at least one devil at your party. They are bound to love this ‘oldie but goodie just based on the chorus. With their unique and very original sound, Raggadeth will get you asking: “Are you a rebel? Have you ever Danced with the Devil?
The original of this song was composed for the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and performed by the characters of this fictional town called ‘Halloween’. By covering this classic, Marilyn Manson has managed to create a rocking song for any Halloween party mix.
