Zombie Thursday Double-shot: Quiz Time!
To say I listen to "eclectic" and "unconventional" music is an understatement. I'm fully aware that my music taste and most of the Lurkdom don't match up. But today isn't about why you should join the dark side and embrace Dimmu Borgir videos as your number one source of entertainment*. It's Zombie Thursday which means we must address the zombie in music.
Now, I should examine why zombies are prevalent in certain musical genres, but the 9-5 job is kicking my butt. You can get an idea of what Miranda would say on the matter by reading her inaugural ZT post.
Instead, what I'm going to do is list songs with "zombie" or a zombie reference in the title with links to the lyrics. Your job is to argue whether or not it's really about zombies or something more.
Zombie - The Cranberries
Pet Sematary - Ramones
Zombie Prostitute - Voltaire
Now I'm Feeling Zombified - Alien Sex Fiend
Dawn of the Dead - Michale Graves
Let the debating begin!
* Though you should.
