While Halloween traditions may come and go, Refinery29's hauntingly epic playlist lasts forever.
Good news — we’ve gone ahead and done it for you. We created three essential playlists: The Haunting Classics, The Sinister Newbies, and One For All The Witches, Werewolves & Monsters. The first offers the classic, creepy-crawly sounds of Halloweens past. The second features modern jams with a darker twist. The third is a witching hour blend of alternative oldies fit for everyone’s favorite monsters. Listen to one. Listen to all of them. But do the "Monster Mash" at least once.
Pro-tip: These songs are best enjoyed while snacking on year-old candy corn.
The Haunting Classics (featuring Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and more)
The Sinister Newbies (featuring Rihanna, Kanye West, and more)
One For All The Witches, Werewolves & Monsters (Fleetwood Mac, Duran Duran, and more)
