Ministry vs. Alice Cooper – Most Haunting Halloween Track, Round 1
Yes, this one is from Ministry’s earlier days and is just a bit synth heavy, but Uncle Al gets a pass here considering the industrial metal titan the band developed into. “(Everyday Is) Halloween” features a synth hook that will undoubtedly stay in your brain until November. The song is about the reaction people have when seeing the way Al Jourgensen dresses day to day: “Well any time, any place, anywhere that I go / All the people seem to stop and stare / They say 'why are you dressed like it's halloween? / You look so absurd, you look so obscene!”
Alice Cooper oozes Halloween with every performance, transforming the stage into a dangerous playground for the macabre. Few acts provide the visual entertainment like Alice does, with “Welcome to My Nightmare” serving as a welcome mat to step into the mind of the twisted showman. The lines “Welcome to my nightmare, I think you're gonna like it / I think you're gonna feel you belong / A nocturnal vacation, unnecessary sedation / you want to feel at home 'cause you belong” are all anyone needs to start their foray into a demented world of fright.
