|Who wants to party with these brain-eaters?|
Yes boys and girls, Saturday is that magical time of the year when zombies take to the West Bank's local watering holes and now Midway Stadium to get intoxicated with Brain Belt. The Zombie Pub Crawl is upon us, and with zombie-mania more in the media than ever, this year's should be the biggest yet. That in mind, we've compiled a playlist of certified zombie hits to get those undead toes a'tapping. Here's our top 10 songs about zombies.
10. Adrian Bond - "Redneck Zombie" (Main Theme) 1987
Starting things off on the country-fried brains side of things is the love theme from the 1987 Troma classic Redneck Zombies. This famed horror-comedy has already turned our Netflix streaming service into a screaming service, so why not let the down-home kinfolk march their way into your heart as you pillage the pubs?
9. µ-Ziq - "Zombies" 1994
Here's the frenetic sounds of British IDM pioneer Mike Paradinas at work. Bonus, we have the video featuring footage from the classic arcade game "Beast Busters."
8. The Cranberries - "Zombie" 1994
Just because a zombie isn't capable reason or rational thought, doesn't mean it can't enjoy a good protest song? While lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's vocal performance is truly haunting, you could also achieve the same startling results by substituting this song with the group's other big hit "Linger."
7. White Zombie - "More Human Than Human" 1995
There was a time in the late-'90s when every single action and horror film's television spot was to be accompanied by the memorably badass riff from White Zombie's "More Human Than Human." Lucky for us, the riff's truly stood the test of time and to-this-day makes any and all activities automatically awesome. By adding zombies and pubs into the mix, you're looking at a foolproof plan for an amazing time.
6. Sufjan Stevens - "They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back From the Dead!! Ahhhhh!" 2005
Is there anything that the title does not express here?
