It’s that spectral time of year, so I thought I’d highlight my two favorite Halloween numbers from the punk era. Though they both share the same title, “Halloween,” the two diverge wildly in their treatment of the subject. The first “Halloween,” by The Dead Kennedys, sneeringly asks that musical question, “What’s so special about Halloween when you wear a mask every day of your life?”

The second ““Halloween,” by Siouxsie And The Banshees, violently broods on lost innocence.

Happy Halloween!

Well, what do you think?
