Misfits - "Astro Zombies"

It's easy to pick out my favorite Halloween song, because it's also one of my favorite all-time tracks: The Misfits' "Astro Zombies." It's a great sing-along number with Glen Danzig at his operatic best belting out those epic room-filling "whoas." Word is the track gets its name from the 1968 cult horror flick Astro-Zombies (on your left). The song, initially released on the 1982 album Walk Among Us, was also later unofficially released on 7" vinyl as an EP. I mention this latter release because of its fantastic artwork, which features an angry Hulk-like Franken-zombie in the lab of a mad scientist. Absolutely classic.
