Halloween Playlist

Featuring Misfits, The Cramps, Slayer, Electric Light Orchestra, Die Antwoord, Kanye and more!
Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls

It's Halloween today — that special time of the year when you're encouraged to attempt special effect make-up at home, scare small infants, and take candy from strangers. To borrow a quote from Mean Girls (yes, going there), "in the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Lingerie as outerwear aside, we've created a hella good Halloween-playlist just for you — an ideal soundtrack for carving pumpkins, summoning spirits and drinking vials of blood (but don't actually).

'Halloween' — Misfits

'Black Magic' — Slayer

'Release The Bats' — The Birthday Party

'Halloween' — Dead Kennedys
