basemetal: Thriller at 22?


They said it was a 'best for last' type of deal. Otherwise, I would have totally agreed with you.

I've been listening to about half of these all month. I think they missed out for not including "This is Halloween," of course, in any version (Manson's is pretty good, but the original also stands up). But they do get bonus points for including "Nightmare on my Street." No penalties for letting Elvira's "Monsta Rap" go without a mention.

They picked the wrong Dead Man's Bones tune.
And they misspelled "Raining Blood" 21 times.
2012-11-01 02:28:07 PM  

I Like Bread: 23. Everything by Type O Negative.

Yep. Also, there are no specific Halloween tunes on this album, just a general sense of sadness and dread that always makes me feel Halloweeny...
