AN ANTHEM TO THE HOLIDAY ITSELF. What more is there to say? The 23rd inductee into my Batty Halloween Hall of Fame is . . .
HALLOWEEN by THE MISFITS
We're talking Glenn Danzig here. Originally recorded in 1980, the song was released on October 31, 1981 as the band's fifth single and it's the last single to feature Bobby Steele on guitar. The song perfectly encapsulates what we love about Halloween with a tinge of nostalgia for Halloween's past which is eluded to in the line "I remember Halloween". A no-brainer (sorry, braineaters) for inclusion in the Batty Halloween Hall of Fame!
