3 Monster Mash – Bobby “Boris” Pickett
In this 1950s classic, all our favorite monsters get together to have a dance party. If you haven’t heard this song, you obviously live under a rock!
2 Pet Sematary – the Ramones
The Ramones set a wonderful ambiance with this punk rock anthem that mournfully tells us, “I don’t want to live my life again.”
1 Thriller – Michael Jackson
Let’s start out with the fact that the mini-movie video is so cool. Add even more awesome points for the use of Vincent Price as narrator. Finally, only Michael Jackson could make dancing zombies look so bitchin’ without dipping heavily into Cheeseville. This song from the album of the same name HAD to be our number one because it’s an anthem for fans of any genre.
