The Best Horror Punk Lyrics Ever!!!

Special Halloween Edition of Best Lyrics Evah!!!

In the spirit of the Halloween season, I decided to do a very special edition of “Best Lyrics Evah!!!” My lyrics pick is for the Misfits classic “Skulls”

In 1982, The Misfits recorded “Skulls” on the “Walk Among Us” album, one of the best “horror punk” songs ever. This song is short, sweet, and to the point… This guy is a bit of a collector, if you will. He wants, no NEEDS human skulls to hang on his wall.

Now, you know as well as I do, that when you gotta have something, well, you just gotta have it!

I’d love to say that it’s these lyrics alone that do it, but there’s much more going on here. The upbeat tempo, snappy feel, and vocal styling all come together to form an old-school masterpiece.

Never before have you felt so happy about “hacking the heads off little girls” before.

See some cool Skull Related Paraphernalia at Skull-A-Day.

Why don’t you grab a seat and just sit back and let the brilliant lyrics from this gem just wash over you.

You’ll be glad you did.

The corpses all hang headless and limp
Bodies with no surprises
And the blood drains down like devil’s rain
We’ll bathe tonight
I want your skull
I need your skull
I want your skull
I need your skull
Demon I am and face I peel
To see your skin turned inside out, ’cause
Gotta have you on my wall
Gotta have you on my wall, ’cause
I want your skull
I need your skull
I want your skull
I need your skull

That was a decade before Buffalo Bill and Hanibal Lecter graced the screens with their version of this type of mental disorder.

Collect the heads of little girls and
Put ’em on my wall
Hack the heads off little girls and
Put ’em on my wall
Oh oh
I want your skull
I need your skull
I want your skull
I need your skull
I want your skull
I need your skull
I want your skull
I need your skull
