Weekly Focus: Songs About Halloween, Day Seven

Wednesday 13 — “Halloween 13-13,” from the album Spook & Destroy (2012).

And I end my list with none other than Wednesday 13, an artist who seems to eat, sleep, and breathe all things horror and Halloween.

Weekly Focus: Songs About Halloween, Day Five

Misfits — “Halloween,” from the album Legacy of Brutality (1985).

This song was also covered by AFI on their All Hallow’s EP!

Top 5: Wednesday 13 Videos

Wednesday 13 and horror go hand in hand. From his days with Maniac Spider Trash, all the way to 2019 and his current band, Wednesday’s subject matter — both lyrically and visually — is always an ode to the macabre.

For this list, I am going to stick to videos from his later days as front man of the band bearing his stage name. Choosing only five was difficult, but here are my picks.

1. “I Walked With a Zombie”

2. “Blood Sick”

3. “Condolences”

4. “What the Night Brings”

5. “Bad Things”

Though it is not a horror-themed video, I had to include this one. I love this song, and I love videos that show live footage and behind-the-scenes clips.
