Halloween Playlist

Halloween is almost upon us, and we’ve put together a solid list of songs to keep you in the spooky spirit. Whether you’re turning up or handing out candy, this playlist will make sure you’re having a hauntingly great time. Don’t worry, there’s more than just all the cheesy, iconic Halloween songs. 

“Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett

We can’t start this playlist without an iconic Halloween tune.


“Burn the Witch” by Radiohead

The music video is pretty wild and features a wickerman at the end.


“Psycho Killer” by The Talking Heads

This might be from the 70’s but it’s still a spooky BOP.


“Zombie” by the Cranberries

I’m not going to lie, most of the Cranberries’ songs are sure to give you Halloween vibes.


“Highway to Hell” by AC/DC

If you’re throwing a party, this definitely HAS to be in the mix. No one can resist dancing to this classic.


“Freaks Come Out at Night” by Whodini

Be careful with those one–once you listen to it, it’ll haunt you for the next few days. 


“Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)” by David Bowie

It’s Bowie, this legend doesn’t need another reason to blast.

“The Purple People Eater” by Sheb Wooley

All cards on the table, I hadn’t heard of this song before, but it’s so fun. I’m sure it’ll be a hit with the kids too!

“Disturbia” by Rihanna 

She might have put a pause on creating new music for now, but her songs never stop the party.


“Season of the Witch” by Donovan

This psychedelic hit from the 70’s is the perfect thing to put your guests in a trance.


“Heads Will Roll” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Just the perfect combo of glitter and gore. We hope your guests stay on while they dance the night away to this hit.


“Witchy Woman” by The Eagles

This classic song can be played all year long but it’s especially perfect for all of Halloween’s witches.


“Time Warp” by The Rocky Horror Picture Show

You can’t have Halloween without this cult classic!


“bury a friend” by Billie Eilish

For a modern take on Halloween, Billie is a must. She’s also a queen at transforming her night terrors into amazing works of art for her music videos.


“Scarecrow” by Beck

This one has more of a cooldown, laid-back vibe with all the spooky elements to wind down after handing out your 676349th piece of candy.


“Monster by Kanye West

Before the rapper turned to Gospel, he killed the rap scene with some iconic hits. Nicki Minaj’s verse in tip track is still one of the best.


“Creep” by Radiohead

This grungy hit is the perfect misfit vibe anyone can enjoy.


“Gods & Monsters” Lana Del Rey

We can’t have a Halloween playlist without our witch queen. Last we heard, she even casts her own spells!


“The Addams Family” by Vic Mizzy

Can you listen without snapping along? Bet you can’t!


“Perhaps Vampires Is a Bit Strong But…” by The Arctic Monkeys

Because calling someone a vampire is so much cooler than the overused witch diss. 


“The Hills” by The Weeknd

This beat is so hauntingly good. Abel definitely killed it on this one.


“Close Your Eyes” by Kim Petras

You might have seen her blowing up on Instagram recently, and with good reason. She’s a perfect mix between catchy and creepy.


“Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson

Is it really Halloween if you don’t blast the King of Goth?


“Living Dead Girl” by Rob Zombie

The only thing this song needs is to be followed up with one of Rob Zombie’s artsy horror films.


“Thriller” by Michael Jackson

We’re closing the list off with the King of Pop (RIP). Halloween is never complete without this.
