The 13 best Horror songs.

Updated on October 14, 2019


The best off beat songs of all time-see where Leonard Nemoy and Weird Al are ranked.

Most songs about movie creatures and characters are meant for fun or are from a movie. Here are the best about horror.

Several people mentioned the fact that Black Blade from B.O.C. didn't make it. I agree that it had an awesome beat and great riffs. But I listened to the lyrics again and it just didn't fit this genre. So, the fact that I left it out is NOT a slight against the song at all.

13. The Blob- Burt Bacharach-How could a horror movie's theme be so happy and up beat? This one was!

12 .The Monster Mash- Bobby"Boris" Picket and the crypt kickers-Some would rank this higher, but I have heard it a million times and am sick of it. So, just be glad it made

11. My Name is Norman Bates-. A strange song about a strange too awful to discuss now!

10. The Thing- Phil Harris- I love this old tune from 1950. "Hey get out of here with that *@(&% and don't come back no more!" Did anyone ever figure out what he brought home?

9. Bela Lagosi's dead- Bon Haus. Any song about Bela, the original Dracula, should be about death...of course.

8. Cyco Lops- A rare rock song about a giant, murderous Cyclops. Because it was unreleased for a long time, it is very hard to find. It is a cool classic and worth the search.

7. Boa Constrictor- That nut Shell Silver strikes again with a hit about anman eating snake

The scary six!

6. Riders on the Storm- The Doors. A warning about a killer one the road. His brain is squirming like a toad!

5. Welcome to my Nightmare- Alice Cooper. The one and only freak of Rock and roll delivers. How could anything be scarier that anything he can dream up?

4. Godzilla- Blue Oyster Cult. About the terror from the deep. History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man!

3. Boris the Spider- Man The Who. An unbelievable nerving tale involving a scary little monster. He was creepy, crawly...

2. Werewolves of London- The immortal Warren Zevon. The master piece about freaks who's hair was perfect!

And now for the evilest of evils and the cruelest of the cruel.

1. Do the Freddy- The Elm Street Band. A scarody of the 60s dance smash hit. The dream demon does one...just for you!

      Great list! I agree with satomko that "Black Blade" would be a good addition, but then Blue Öyster Cult could really have their own sci-fi/fantasy/horror list -- "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", "Veteran of the Psychic Wars", the entire "Imaginos" album, etc. I guess that's what you get when you hang out with people like Michael Moorcock!

      Pretty good list, but it's missing "Black Blade" by the Blue Oyster Cult.

      The Mash is popular. I guess I've tuned it out because I have heard it so much.

      These novelty songs are always fun. I like "The Monster Mash".
