Just in time for Halloween, we have a metal song called “The Monster Mosh” [sic]

One of the most enduring songs EVER is Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s “The Monster Mash,” which has reliably come back from the dead every Halloween since 1962. Sixty years later, the song has finally been given a metal twist by Two Minutes to Late Night. Calling it “Monster Mosh” seems obvious, doesn’t it?

  • To anyone who watches and enjoys this video, I highly recommend checking out the rest of the 2 Minutes To Late Night Channel. At first glance, it may seem as if it’s geared entirely towards fans of metal–and it certainly reflects its creators’ love of the genre–but it’s quite accessible to anyone who’s passionate about music in general, and enjoys seeing it blended with a generous helping of cheeky humour. The bedroom covers and the highschool cd booklet reviews in particular are worth your time. The gentle send-up of Coheed & Cambria is hilarious, even if you’re only passingly familiar with their work, and you haven’t lived until you’ve heard their metal medleys of 90’s and early 00’s EDM hits, or seen Gwarsenio Hall team up with Cybertronic Spree to do a metal version of Stan Bush’s ‘Touch’ from the 1986 Transformers animated movie. The whole thing is just *chef’s kiss*…
    Oh, and be sure to check out Gwarsenio talking to Wade McNeil from Alexisonfire about ‘Watch Out!’, among other things… 🙂
