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!

Groovie Ghoulies are go! Formed in the 80s in Sacramento, California, the Groovie Ghoulies were a pop punk band that made the kind of music Frankenberry, Booberry, and Count Chocula would make if they formed a band. They took equal parts inspiration from horror movies, The Ramones, and The Monkees, then put it all together in a blender along with about a gallon of sugar.
Their name is from a cartoon from the 70s called The Groovie Goolies, which featured a hip group of monsters who lived at Horrible Hall and played music in every episode. Check out the original opening song from the show below--Everybody shout! Come on now, sing out! It's time for the Ghoulie get-together!
