Grimly Fiendish – 28 Hauntingly Awesome Songs for Halloween

Grimly fiendish halloween costumes


This is my first mix tape playlist on request! 


One of my readers emailed me and requested an “awesome Goth/Punk/Alt Halloween playlist perfect for a Halloween Party” -- your wish is my command. 

I’m not going to write this one in my normal fashion because let’s face it, TWENTY-EIGHT songs, around two hours of awesome music, that is just too much to post individually about each tune. Instead, to streamline reading and maximize your enjoyment, I’ve created a YouTube playlist with every song in order.


A little about this Freakishly Awesome and ULTIMATE Halloween playlist…


I worked hours on this playlist to make sure I included everything from Punk to Ska from Goth to Psychobilly, with a bit of Modern Alternative/Hard Rock sprinkled in at the end.


NO Halloween mix tape playlist is complete without:


The Damned, Misfits, The Cramps -- just about anything will do from these bands! I’ve included a few from each.

And of course, Ministry -- Everyday is Halloween and Bauhaus -- Bela Lugosi’s Dead.

I used the actual video for Type O Negative -- Black no. 1 -- only because it totally rocks and I miss Peter Steele. Unfortunately the video version is only 4:41. If you choose to make this into an iTunes playlist, use the actual 11:15 version. You will love it!

I’m sure you’ll enjoy the variety and song order as well, as I tried to make a nice flow with the tunes!


I hope you have an absolutely spooky and amazing Halloween, Karnye, and thanks for being a reader! 🙂
