Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

For our Halloween spooktacular, we’ve conjured up a countdown of the 40 greatest trick or treat tunes of all time.

The "Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll" grooveyard ghouls have scared up monster hits by Bobby “Boris” Pickett, Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, the Ramones, Credence Clearwater Revival, Santana, the Eagles, the J. Geils Band, Warren Zevon, Guns ‘N Roses, Annie Lennox, and Donovan among many others.

Some of these macabre melodies have been raised from their vinyl resting places for the first time in decades of Halloweens.

Our very own "Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll" Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, also drops by with some gruesome goodies – "trailers" and radio commercials advertising some of the most horrible horror movies of all time.

So wrap some garlic around your podcast player, don’t download this show alone in the dark, and listen to it at your own risk for our selection of the 40 greatest undead ditties.

See the "WDAM Radio's Greatest Halloween Hits" link on the "Musicology"page for a comprehensive listing of every Halloween hit single ever ... and a whole lot more.
