Bobby “Boris” Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers' perennial favorite “Monster Mash” was rejected by every major label, but shocked recording industry executive zombies when it became a #1 hit in 1962. Though he never had another hit as monstrous, Pickett spent many hours of his life working in the lab, creating more spooky novelty songs. Here are a few more bone-chillers for you:


Monster’s Holiday

It’s Halloween vs. Christmas! I hear this is Jack Skellington’s favorite karaoke song.


Werewolf Watusi

There are many, many monster-related dances.


Blood Bank Blues

Don’t let Dracula volunteer with the Red Cross. It’s a trick!


The Monster Rap

How many producers have said to Jay-Z: “rap for daddy?” Hopefully several?


It’s Alive

There’s nothing more wholesome than fathers and sons building monsters together.


Bonus: Climate Mash

See if you can guess what this political parody is supporting. It’s practically impossi-ghoul!
