The Monsters Are Here -- Halloween Hootenanny

Halloween Hootenanny
Carve your pumpkins, spike your punch, and if you're not dressed up, your out of the party. This is the best Halloween party music I've ever heard. Surf, rockabilly, psychobilly, and all the sounds that remind you of cheesy 70's horror/monster flicks.

This is a fun Halloween CD assembled by Rob Zombie. Most of the music here is either rockabilly or surf, and it's all wild. It also features a spoken intro by Zacherley, the famous TV Horror Host from the fifties. He also sits in with the crazy fun Southern Culture on the Skids for some spoken word on the track, Sinister Purpose.

The one performance that seems out of place here is by Frenchy, which is sort of bachelor pad lounge music. Some of my favorites here are by Reverend Horton Heat, Southern Culture on the Skids, The Amazing Crowns, Swingin' Neckbreakers, Los Straitjackets, Dead Elvi and Rob Zombie himself.

But what's great about this album is that it's not filled with squeaking bats, chains rattling, and wolfs howling (there is a little, but not too much), so you can listen to it at any time of the year. Great for driving.

For more good rockin Halloween music, check out Monster Bop and Horror Hop down below. Full of old garage bands singing about monsters.
