|Death by stereo!|
Horror movies have actually helped my love for music as well. Early on I associated songs with the movies they appeared it which always gave me a giggle from my own personal jokes at hearing Credence Clearwater Revival while clothes shopping or Clearing up the Town as a theme to a basketball final when I was a kid.
This is a playlist of a mixtape I found on a blog almost 7 years ago... it compiles what I think to be some of the best songs from horror movies... it covers a wide variety of films, artists and genres... from the heavy metal of Motörhead and Megadeth to the sexy saxing from Michael Sembello to the punk rock of The Ramones and Dramarama, it even includes the wackiness of Weird Al and The Fat Boys!
