Monster Bands

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Last week, in preparation for Halloween, I published a playlist that included only songs inspired by classic monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, etc. This playlist only scratched the surface. There are hundreds of thousands of songs inspired by monsters, whether they're the ones we see on the big screen, or the ones we fight within ourselves. So in keeping with Halloween I thought I would put together a playlist of songs by bands who have named themselves after monsters. I thought about vampires, witches, trolls, zombies and other evil incarnate, and before I knew it, the list was much too long. So, I decided to include only those bands who use the actual word "monster" in their name.

Who have I missed?
