[17 Days of Halloween]: Creepy Crawly Punk Rock Party Playlist

Looking for a soundtrack for your next Halloween party? Look no further than this playlist!
Get away from the traditional tracks and create a cooler atmosphere. Maybe your skeletons will dance too.

The Kill / 30 Seconds to Mars

This song is chilling. And the video? Come on! It's in direct reference to The Shining, one of my favorite movies of all time. And Emo Jared Leto is like...the best Jared Leto right?
This is an old favorite that will get your party going in no time. Get away from the typical spooky tracks and into something a bit cooler.

This Is Halloween / Panic! At The Disco

This band has done a lot of Halloween-y covers, but this one is by far my favorite. It's a new spin on the track from Nightmare Before Christmas that we all love. If the Marilyn Manson version is too much for you, I'd choose this one. It's a bit lighter and poppier...more party ready.

Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC) / Fall Out Boy

This track from the band's newest album "American Beauty / American Psycho" has Halloween written all over it. It's a totally eerie track that'll keep the party rocking without all the cliches. It's got a really cool, driving back beat too so expect people to dance and

Vampires Will Never Hurt You / My Chemical Romance

This early early MCR track will have you crawling in your skin. It's all about vampires, duh. And it's the perfect song to get your party going. It's got that rock and roll feel that gets people moving, but won't overwhelm the party's atmosphere.
The creepy music video could suit a big TV screen too, if you're into playing music through the TV like my friends and I did in college.

Ghost / The Academy Is...

I've been on a recent kick with this old band...and damn it. They're still good. This track is creepy. It's like a home invasion in song form. It's got a shuffling chorus that can get the room going and will freak out people who are really listening to the lyrics. Nothing is better than that right?

Skulls / Misfits

The Misfits are punk rock legends, but don't let that scare you away from playing them during your party. Their songs are Halloween gold and you'll get some hardcore cred from fans if you play this classic track. Skulls is a scary song. Totally perfect for a late night zombie jam.

Which track gives you the heebie jeebies?

Only 17 more days until Halloween!!!!!!!

Yes @littlemaryk one of my favorite musical moments was in college when my band covered this at our "Blood Ball" concert. It was for Halloween :)
Ah, the kill. It's been awhile.
Yeah I've heard it. Reminds me of David Bowie meets Iggy Pop.
@glostick have you heard his solo album!? I love it!

10 My Chemical Romance Songs You'll Never Forget
Some songs live in your head forever. They're the tunes you hear late at night when you turn off your mind and close your eyes. Most of the songs I hear are MCR songs. During a very specific time in our lives, My Chemical Romance filled the voids left by our friends, families, teachers and anyone else we felt alienated by. They saved our lives. Whether you were a fan, musician or just an observer: MCR became your strength. It is extremely hard to narrow it down to 10, and I'll probably regret not recognizing a few more songs since their entire catalogue is a testament to greatness...but I tried. In the dark days of teenage angst, missed love connections and general confusion about life itself My Chemical Romance called us to arms: We are stronger than we think, and we will never let them take us alive. Here are 10 MCR songs that had a profound impact on me, I'd love to hear yours. 1. Famous Last Words / The Black Parade This song was the anthem. The song that we could all turn to when everything else was lost in the shadows. Whatever got us down, high school, family, other people or the future: we had Famous Last Words. The legendary chorus screams, "I am not afraid to keep on living / I am not afraid to walk this world alone." And those words helped us validate ourselves. Things are not as scary if we can own our independence. Realizing that you're incomplete, or working on something is the first step into the light. These words are our weapons. This song is a powerful message that some of us tattooed on ourselves, wore on shirts, and committed to memory. There is nothing we can't do. 2.Headfirst for Halos The catchy beat and poppy chorus of this tune gave us an intimate look at the duality of MCR. Most people have two sides to them, the one they show the world, and the one they keep to themselves. Most of us have a little bit more going on inside than we like to admit, and Headfirst For Halos proves we're not alone. Depression, anxiety, and other internal struggles were talked about by this band. They helped us fight. Whether we were on the brink of a breakdown or just struggling for a moment, we realized that nothing is ever so bad that it can't change. 3. Desert Song / Life On The Murder Scene (Bonus Track) Arguably the darkest song the band ever released, Desert Song is never far from my memory. It describes something very close to me, the idea of mortality. I fight it every day. Most of my anxiety stems from the feeling of running out time, the feeling of not ever being able to live. One sequence of lyrics sets itself apart as the though I can never seem to verbalize myself, "From the lights to the pavement / from the van to the floor / from backstage to the doctor / from the earth to the morgue." It's madly melancholy. It alludes to the idea of performance as an escape, or a way to avoid the inevitable. I know a lot of musicians, actors and entertainers can feel this. It's a musical representation of the hollow feeling you get after you leave the stage, or the place you really belong. It's inhuman. Sad. Longing. Desperate. It's remarkable. 4.Early Sunsets Over Monroeville / I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love This was actually the first track Frank Iero tracked with the band, and it's truly unique. We get introduced to the macabre, gray world of MCR and we get a sense of the band's identity. Hauntingly beautiful, Monroeville is a stand out track because of its personality. You can imagine two ghosts dancing to its beat in the moonlight, their steps treading lightly on a concrete floor. The chorus moves them unlike any earthly thing could. That is the essence of MCR. 5.This is How I Disappear / The Black Parade This song appeals to that carnal side of us that just wants to destroy things. It's angry, brash and more akin to the hardcore side of the band. You can feel the influence of The Misfits and other Jersey bands that ended up shaping the vibe of MCR. "Away with the boys in the band." We all wanted to go away with them. There is still that theatricality to the song, which lets us know that we're in the middle of a rock opera, and not just another run-of-the-mill rock record. The Black Parade as a unit could not have worked without this song. It is an essential moving part. 6.Kill All Your Friends / The Black Parade (B Side) I have a very specific memory associated with this song. You ever remember exactly where you were when you listened to a song? I remember being on the bus, headed to school in 8th grade. I was fighting with a few of my friends. My world was changing. I was about to enter high school and I had a lot of thinking to do. This song made me feel better about leaving people behind. Although it was blunt, a little brash and altogether emotional, I knew that this time would prepare me for crazier times as an adult. 7. I Never Told You What I Did For A Living / Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge As macabre and theatrical as this song is, it's rooted in reality. I think it takes the idea of who you are when the lights go off and magnifies it. What is our reality? Who are we when nobody is around. There's a lot of mischief and mayhem that happens when you're figuring out who you are, and this song made us feel more included. Plus, it was incredibly energetic, loud and everything we wanted out of an MCR song. 8.Helena / Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge Yes, this was the single that everyone knew, and yes it was commercial, but it reached millions because it was passionate. An ode to Gerard and Mikey Way's grandmother, this track opened every wound and helped it heal, by exposing real, genuine sorrow. Losing things or people can lead to a lot of heartbreak. It can force you into the dark corners of your mind that you didn't even know existed. MCR made you realize that all of the darkness is okay. Most of us realized when we saw this music video, that MCR was not your typical band. They were on our side. In order to move forward we must use our issues, our sorrow, our setbacks. We ignite them. We can survive. 9. The Only Hope For Me Is You / Danger Days This is one of those songs that a lot of people missed. Danger Days was an album that a lot of people missed. I remember listening to this when I felt as if nothing could be done about my life. Darkness comes to mind. The lyrics describe a desperate call for comradeship in a cold, cruel world. It's a masterfully written rock and roll track with a swelling, emotional chorus. It uses all the elements that make MCR so relatable, and swirls them around in a blender, creating this devastating track. The desperation you feel when you're trying to connect can be felt in each word. It's beautiful. 10. The Kids From Yesterday This is my favorite My Chemical Romance song, hands down. Coming out near the end of their career, The Kids From Yesterday is the perfect blend of melancholy and joy. It sheds light on the reverence you have for the times you were innocent, carefree and genuinely excited about life. Admitting that something is over can be the saddest thing in the world. How we get out of that by having the ability to look back without anger is the real goal. When the band said their goodbyes, lead singer Gerard Way saith that MCR can live forever, because it is not a band, it's an idea. That idea stays with us to this day. MCR will never die, and the words still mean something. Everything goes away, but music is eternal.

9 Pop-Punk Songs You Forgot You Loved
You lived and died by these bands, and they're still just as good. Get your nostalgia on and listen to your old favorites as if they were brand new. Music doesn't have an expiration date, and if you loved something once upon a time, you probably still do right? The early 2000's had their share of amazing bands...but these ones characterize a time in my life where I was innocent, hell-bent on doing well in school and trying to get my future in control. I had no problems whatsoever, but felt like the world was falling down around me. Man...I was an idiot. Let's take a look back at the tracks that defined us and remember what we were like when they did. 1. Fall Out Boy / Thnks Fr Th Mmrs This is the perfect song to kick off our little trip through time right? Fall Out Boy is still huge, and arguably better than ever, but this song is still a classic. I can remember getting chills every time I heard it on the radio. Because even though the radio stations primarily played all of the "pop garbage" you'd hear on the daily...Fall Out Boy was always there to cut through it. 2. We've Got A Big Mess On Our Hands / The Academy Is... This song was my JAM. The first lines spoke to my soul, "I've got that lefty curse where everything I do is flipped and awkwardly reversed / you're seldom known and barely missed / I always put myself in destructive situations." This was like my number one angsty teenage tune. Though this group broke up in 2011 they're reuniting for a tour this winter! An I may be there ;) 3. I Write Sins, Not Tragedies / Panic! At The Disco A band with an exclamation point in their name!? Come On. The original line-up of Panic! is at it's peak on their debut "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out." I remember seeing this band at my first real concert, they opened for Fall Out Boy and played for like...15 minutes. But they were incredible. Apparently Panic! got a record deal before they played a single show live. Man...I wish my band had done that. 4. Snakes on a Plane (Bring It!) / Cobra Starship feat. Travie McCoy, Maja and William Beckett This song was the coolest thing since sliced bread. We all loved it because it was from the soundtrack of one of the most absurd movies ever. The movie birthed an even more absurd song. This is still a go-to Karaoke track for my friends and I. We all take a different part. I of course, sing the high chorus because William Beckett sang it. And I loved him. Why not. 5. Dear Maria Count Me In / All Time Low My band used to play graduation parties...and when we covered this song, it was a huge hit! There's nothing like an infectious pop hook coupled with slashing guitars and raw energy. All Time Los is still around today, and their newest record Future Hearts is pretty great...but nothing brings back the memories like "Dear Maria Count Me In." It's just infectious. 6. Cupid's Chokehold / Gym Class Heroes feat. Patrick Stump "Take a look at my girlfriend / she's the only one I got." This song was heard at every school dance I can remember. Gym Class Heroes was the pop / punk / hip hop act of your dreams. The innovative musical style and romantic lyrics of this track drew in a lot of people. Fun fact for you, lead singer Travie McCoy dated Katy Perry for a while...and she even makes an appearance in this video. 7. Pressure / Paramore This was the first Paramore song I really liked. I remember singing it in my basement with a karaoke track, trying to hit the high notes in the chorus. Every girl wanted to be Hayley Williams...and I think some still do. This is the song you'd scream after you broke up with your high school boyfriend. Cause like...why not. 8. My Friends Over You / New Found Glory Arguably the catchiest song on this list, My Friends Over You, is still an anthem for everyone who values the age old adage friends over boyfriends. There's nothing better than screaming this track at the top of your lungs in the car with your best friends. This band was one of the first pop-punk acts I got into and they still rock. Their latest track "Vicious Love" features Hayley from Paramore. 9. American Idiot / Green Day This band rocked my world, literally. They opened the door of musical expression and gave me permission to be myself. The minute I saw this music video on MTV in 6th grade, my life changed. This song means so much to me. It is a fearless call to action, for us to not follow the rules. Green Day was just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and for good reason. They're an extremely individual act, who inspired nearly every other act on this list. Gotta end with the most influential right? Which song was your favorite!?
