Top Ten Zombie Themed Songs
10. “Zombies Ate Her Brain” — The Creepshow

This bouncy bit of psychobilly is from the Toronto, Ontario-based band The Creepshow and features the “easy on the eyes” Sarah “Sin” Blackwood. The song features a lot of comedy but also shows the band’s obvious deep abiding love for all things reanimated. The tune is lively, the lyrics are a hoot, and Blackwood looks like a million bucks (especially after her zombification).

9. “L’Alba Dei Morte Viventi” — Goblin

One of the most powerful – and scary-sounding – pieces of music in horror. From its ominous opening notes and on through the chorus of moaning voices, this song has more atmosphere than can be found in most modern horror films. Italian maestros – and longtime Dario Argento collaborators – Goblin show us all how it’s done and craft a truly memorable song.

8. “We’re Comin’ To Kill Ya” — Zach Selwin

This little tune from the under-rated film Dead and Breakfast comes from G4 contributor and troubadour Zach Selwin and packs – to my way of thinking – just as much fun and dance moves as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. The music is infectious, the lyrics smart and funny, and this video clip exhibits some good gore.

  • Morgan Elektra

    Lists like this are always subjective, but this is a pretty good one. Nice to see Jonathan Coulton on there!

  • jkincer

    NO Misfits?!?! Night of the living dead? vampira? astro zombies? ghouls night out? braineaters? you could make an entire greatest zombie songs album from danzig era misfits songs…

  • Terminal

    Really good list. I love The Gonk. “Dawn” has an amazing soundtrack. Good stuff.
    “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

  • Cinemascribe

    Solid list, but I think you missed a bet by not including The Dead Walk from Romero’s Day of the Dead.

    “I’m saying that I’m an insect who dreamt he was a man…and loved it. But now the dream is over..and the insect is awake.” – Seth Brundle

  • maikii

    No Send More Paramedics songs? Come on, now…

    Good call on The Creepshow, though. They’re great.

  • The Woman In Black

    No “Zombie” from The Cranberries? Too obvious? lol

  • Uncle Creepy

    Good list! I totally would have included the theme from Fucli’s Zombie too though!
