Need a spooky soundtrack/playlist to set off your Halloween party this year?

Here’s a look at 30 classics guaranteed to put you in the mood for the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll holiday. A few of these choices are painfully obvious Halloween staples. “Monster Mash,” for instance.

But that song is child’s play compared to a lot of these choices. And I don’t mean “Child’s Play,” the movie with Chucky, the murdering doll. That was actually scary. I mean child’s play as in sticky kids’ stuff, as opposed to Alice Cooper staring longingly into cadaver eyes or Bauhaus paying tribute to film legend Bela Lugosi of “Dracula” fame.
