It’s not Halloween without the horror-obsessed musical works of Rob Zombie blasting out from the speakers. Ya know – fun music to annoy people with. White Zombie and Rob Zombie’s solo efforts were the sounds of my teenage years, with Hellbilly Deluxe as the soundtrack to my high school years. I have many fond memories of Halloweens with Zombie’s music playing in the background, or cruising through the streets of Albuquerque at night with my friends, looking for Gates of Hell to hang out at. Yeah – we were an interesting bunch back then.
I was a bit obsessed with Rob Zombie for a couple of years but have never seen him live, and I hope to actually catch him in concert before I’m too old to be in mosh pits. Is there an age limit for moshing or walls-of-death? I’ve even thought about cosplaying as Rob Zombie for Halloween one of these years; I can totally pull it off. In the years since Hellbilly Deluxe, I’ve strayed away from his music because it started to sound too generic and bland. I’ve included newer songs and videos for the fans that do dig his newer stuff.
His cinematic works are…well… You’ll find fans who LOVE his films and others who HATE them. His celluloid dreams will be featured in a future post some day, and that probably requires me to sit through all of his films without cringing or shouting at my TV.
Halloween is a visual-and-aural holiday, and the music videos below fully capture every awesome aspect of the day. Music videos are awesome in general, and White Zombie’s and Rob Zombie’s were always cool to watch with nostalgic eyes for B-grade through Z-grade horror footage mixed in with live band footage. So sit back and crank up your speakers as you listen to Rob Zombie’s signature growl and creepy music. ROCK ON!!! \m/
There’s a lot of videos below, so you may experience some slowdown. Or you can blame it on your Internet connection and Adobe Flash. Those are good go-to’s for issues. Carry on.
