T-minus 6

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!
