The Halloween Dance

TRACK #70:

The Halloween Dance by The Reverend Horton Heat

I love the Rev, so I’ve always appreciated the fact that I could include him on the Shindig, via this made-to-order Halloween song compliments of Rob Zombie’s Halloween Hootenanny album.

Not only is this upbeat spookster a great Halloween song but it also features a pretty referential verse where he shouts out Psycho, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Stepford Wives.

There’s even a brief musical nod to The Munsters, all wrapped up in the Rev’s customized psychobilly sound.

Halloween never sounded so swingin’.



Maniac Cop Rap

TRACK #69:

Maniac Cop Rap by Yeshwua Barnes & B Dub Woods

As longtime followers are probably (painfully) aware, Monster Raps are load bearing supports in the Halloween Shindig rotation.

And when it comes to Monster Raps, few come as tailor-made awesome as Yeshwua Barnes and B Dub Woods’ Maniac Cop Rap.

Check the stats:

  • Does it take the movie’s score and mix into an awesome beat? Check.
  • Does it play during the end credits? Check.
  • Does it feature the title repeated ad nauseum? Check
  • Does it talk about how badass the main character is? Check
  • Does it feature the most ridiculous lyrics you can image? Check plus.

Here’s some choice selection from the track…

Set ‘em on fire, I shoot ‘em with a Uzi
But he’ll show up in you’re jacuzzi!”


And don’t waste time dialin’ 9-1-1
Forget karate and forget yer gun!


You won’t get a ticket or pay a fine
You might as well be dealin’ with Frankenstein!

Fair Enough.

Without any further adieu, segueing out of our 80’s Oddball Sequel Dance Party, from a sequel that’s better than the original, 1990’s Maniac Cop 2, here’s the Manaic Cop Rap.
