The 5 best songs that mention Zombies

We do not know what it is about zombies, so when it comes to explaining society’s current obsession with the undead, we are not sure we can put our finger on it.

We do not know what it is about zombies, so when it comes to explaining society’s current obsession with the undead, we are not sure we can put our finger on it.

They are certainly not cuddly, cute, and friendly — so what is the appeal? Even the world’s biggest Pop, Hip-hop, and Rock stars have a fascination with the idea of zombies, and it’s proven in their lyrics.

So we perused some of the biggest songs of all time that are all about these creatures of the night. What song is your favorite ditty about these grave-dwellers?

Below are the 5 Best Zombie Songs playlists

The Weeknd — The Morning


“I got them on straight bar hopping to the music of the ambiance / Get s*** popping / Zombies of the night…”

As one of The Weeknd’s most popular songs, there has to be a reason why people resonate with the lyrics so much. Maybe because we sometimes all need to stay up all night, party with your friends, and become a crew of zombies that terrorize the dark.

Young The Giant — Cough Syrup

“Life’s too short to even care at all, oh / I’m coming up now coming up now out of the blue, oh / These zombies in the park they’re looking for my heart…”

Using a clever zombie-centric metaphor, we could not help but include Young The Giant on our playlist for the undead.

Ke$ha — Dancing With Tears In My Eyes

“On the floor I’m just a zombie / Who I am is not who I wanna be / I’m such a tragedy / With every move I die…

Who has not felt this way before? Totally hopeless, filled with depair…just like a zombie. Ke$ha captured it lyrically to a T.

Kanye West — Monster

“Sasquatch, Godzilla, King Kong, Loch Ness / Goblin, ghoul, a zombie with no conscious…”

As one of the most legendary songs ever about things that go bump in the night, Jay-Z’s verse about ghouls, goblins, and of course zombies obviously has a place on our list.

The Cranberries — Zombie

“What’s in your head, in your head / Zombie, zombie, zombie? / Hey, hey, hey, hey…”

You knew it was coming! “Zombie”. With lead singer Dolores O’Riordan chanting “zombie, zombie, zombie” over and over again, it’s almost like she’s a member of the undead herself. Just saying.
