The Purple People Eater is one of the best known novelty songs of all time, composed and made famous by Sheb Wooley in 1958 and it's about an one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater who eats purple people and wants to be in a rock 'n' roll band.

The song inspired a sci-fi comedy film of the same name to be made 30 years after its release and still to this day it's considered a Halloween classic.
