31 Songs Of Halloween: Misfits: Night Of The Living Dead18.10.16
There is no Halloween without the sounds of the ultimate horror punk band.
Obviously inspired by the 1968 film of the same name, Night Of The Living Dead was Misfits' fourth single, released on Halloween 1979, together with b-sides, Where Eagles Dare (which borrows its title from another 1968 film, the war movie starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood) and Rat Fink, a cover of a song by Allan Sherman.
Night Of The Living Dead was later included in the band's debut full length, Walk Among Us and different versions of it found their ways onto compilations like Misfits, the coffin boxset and the unofficial 12 Hits From Hell.
