Dedicated to all the great lost and little-heard Halloween songs that get swept under the "Monster Mash" tide every October. Crawl out of that radio man's dungeon and listen!

Ever wanted all your favorite monsters not only put together in a handy list, but also put to music? The Famous Monsters are here to please! Formed in the mid-90s, Famous Monsters was the brainchild of Sean Yseult, bassist for White Zombie.
Unlike the hard, crunching riffs of White Zombie, Famous Monsters played surfy garage music and wore cartoonish monster outfits that made them look like a cross between Josie and the Pussycats and The Groovie Goolies. All three members were female and took on names to match their outfits, calling themselves Vampire Girl, She-Zilla, and Devil Doll.
Unfortunately the band hasn't recorded since the late 90s, but they never officially broke up, so we can hope that one day they will reanimate. Until then, International Monster Presentation, sound off!
