Posted by on August 15, 2016


2) Lizzy Borden – Red Rum

When you think of Lizzy Borden, “horror” is not the word that comes to mind, but the Los Angeles squad had some good taste scary genre and they paid rendition to it with their song “Red Rum.” The song is a reference to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece The Shining and the trip to insanity Jack Nicholson’s character goes through the entire movie. A little happy tuned for the lyrical topic but a great throwback to what was good in the 80’s.


1). Death – Evil Dead

Yes, we have to repeat the flashback to The Evil Dead but many have loved that movie so much that is hard to ignore the great tracks inspired by it, and one that can’t be dismissed is Death’s Evil Dead. In a short span of 3 min, late Chuck Schuldiner delivers a great tribute to Bruce Campbell and the badassery brought by Ash in the film. Now that’s what I call groovy.
