Rob Zombie is a highly regarded name both in the world of music and cinema. The multitalented frontman zoomed to the top of the industrial metal world with his band White Zombie, originally using the alias of Rob Straker on both the 'Soul-Crusher' and 'Make Them Die Slowly' before officially changing his stage name to Rob Zombie for the 1989 EP 'God of Thunder.'

The inspiration for both his moniker and the White Zombie band name comes from the 1932 classic horror film 'White Zombie,' which starred master of horror Bela Lugosi and is widely considered as the first true zombie flick.
