Ten Scariest Musicians in Honor of Halloween
As October barrels toward All Hollow's Eve, the desire to be spooked grows and grows. You don't need to read up on Aleister Crowley or the Amityville house to get your scares, though; you can just dig into your record collection. Some of the musicians in there are false monsters, mere tricks, but here, we'll dig deeper. With these ten scariest musicians, we reintroduce you to some real ghouls who make music. These ten would be anything but a treat if you ran into them in a dark cemetery.
10. Bobby "Boris" Pickett
Bobby was a wholesome novelty singer and writer, but hearing his Frankenstein voice singing "The Monster Mash" with his band the Cryptkeepers has given young ones chills for decades. Still, I feel bad for stranding him with the other scary creatures on this list.
9. Marilyn Manson
Though most of this former Fort Lauderdalian's shock tactics were mere publicity stunts, he did strike a gruesome figure with his makeup and androgynous outfits.
8. Glenn Danzig
The former lead man of the Misfits, who's still touring with Danzig, can cut a fearsome image when regaled in full makeup and fishnet pentagram shirt. Now claiming that his adoration of Satan was misunderstood due to being misquoted in interviews, he reminds us that the devil was never known to tell the truth.
