Theme Thursday- Heavy Metal Zombies
Posted by RiffRaff
Zombies. Love ’em or hate ’em, they’re a force in pop culture that isn’t going away anytime soon. From video games, to movies, to literature the living dead clawed, chewed, and gnashed their way into our hearts. Why do we love these bumbling husks of humanity so much? Probably because it gives us a chance to take our frustrations out on all the other ‘morons’ that get in our way on a daily basis. Walking down a crowded street, haven’t you wished at least once you could drive a bulldozer over all the people in your way but tucked that thought in the back of your mind due to the legal consequences that come with it. If everyone was a zombie I bet you wouldn’t even think twice before doing it.
Much like mowing down hordes of the undead in games and movies is a stress relief, so is music, and zombies have certainly found their way into that too, especially heavy metal. Here’s a bunch of songs and music videos in many different styles of metal that pay tribute to societies favorite monster, the zombie. What are some of your favorite metal songs and videos about zombies? Enjoy!! Peace Love and Braaaaaiiiinnnnssssss!!!!
P.S. I’m aware that a couple of these aren’t exactly about zombies, but they have ‘zombie’ in the title and they’re kick ass songs, so…
Anthrax – Fight ‘Em Til You Can’t
Hammerfall – One More Time
GWAR – Zombies, March
