Rob Zombie, “Dragula”, 1998

I’m shocked there aren’t other Zombie songs on this list, but “Dragula” is a good one to pick if you have to pick just one. “Dragula” gets an average of 3.4x more views on Halloween. The song was released in August, 1998 on the Hellbilly Deluxe album.

"Dead I am the one, exterminating son Slipping through the trees, strangling the breeze Dead I am the sky, watching angels cry While they slowly turn, conquering the worm Dig through the ditches And burn through the witches I slam in the back of my Dragula!"

Rob Zombie, AKA Mr. Halloween, is really good at creating spooky songs and movies. “Dragula” is Zombie’s best-selling song and one of the most recognizable from his solo work. “Dragula” is in reference to the drag racer “DRAG-U-LA” from The Munsters. There has been quite a bit of fan speculation as to whether the song references sex, or even the Salem witchcraft trials, which Zombie is also infatuated with.

In the “Dragula” music video (above), Zombie is seen in a car that looks a lot like the Munster Koach (different from DRAG-U-LA). It also features clips from different movies like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and the killer robot from The Phantom Creeps. The movie Idle Hands also used the song and video.
