‘Monster Mash’ Remade To Better Reflect 2014 [Video]
Well, it's not an official remake but it's about as close as we're going to get.
In 1962 Bobby "Boris" Pickett released a novelty song called "The Monster Mash." Believe it or not, it was #1 on the Hot 100 chart on October 20 - 27 of that year!
The thing about 1962 was that the monsters weren't all that scary when you compare them to today's monsters. Really, today's monsters such as Jason, Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, Jigsaw, Hannibal Lecter, etc aren't just scary, they are down right disturbing.
You could say we went from kooky monsters to straight up psychotic killers.
Thanks to Key Of Awesome, we now have an updated version of "The Monster Mash!"
Check out the original with Bobby Pickett performing on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand."
