MattFini's Halloween Top 10 Lists: Most Memorable End Credit Songs
6. Dream Warriors (Dokken)
From: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)
I always thought Dokken was a little underrated when it came to 80s bands. To this day I continue to rock the Back for the Attack album, and hearing Dream Warriors always takes me back to a time when Freddymania swept the land. Hearing it today also makes me wonder what in the hell ever happened to Craig Wasson, but that’s another story.
5. Pet Semetary (Ramones)
From: Pet Semetary (1989)
I’ll confess -- it was this song that turned me into a Ramones fan. I’d never heard of them before this, but after watching Pet Semetary, I was a lifelong fan. I really like the film, but I believe it’s the way this song launches into the end credits that really gives it an extra shot of bad-assery.
