Great Songs for a Halloween Playlist

Every holiday has their songs and Halloween is no exception. It is possible that the list of Halloween songs and songs with related themes can rival that of Christmas. A big part of that is because of the many rock bands that put out songs that are perfect for Halloween. The list I'm about to present to you is an accumulation of classic and modern songs perfect for any Halloween party. Though there are a ton, these are my personal favorites. If you like rock music, than this list just might be perfect for your next Halloween party.

From classic Halloween songs like "The Monster Mash", to modern songs like "Living Dead Girl", this list covers a wide range of music.
