Unmask our Halloween playlist today

Dare to be different this Halloween? Well, you’ve come to the right place because we’re treating you to a very special playlist…

We are dedicating the day to those spooky bands and artists who dress up all year round. Why? Well, because anyone who wears a mouse head 24hrs a day 365 days of the year deserves to be celebrated in our opinion (Deadmau5 – you legend).

Our ‘masked’ playlist features the incredible Slipknot, who’ve terrified us by wearing creepy masks for over a decade. OK, so maybe it’s a fairly obvious choice for a masked band, but there are some surprises on there too. SBTRKT for one. Yep this guy is never without his wooden mask even during festival season – I mean, who knows what’s going on under there, but it must be hot.

And don’t worry, if you want to impress your friends with your ‘masked’ bands knowledge this weekend then below we unveil a few fun facts from some of the artists featured in our alternative playlist:

  • Daft Punk – These two Parisian robots are the mystery of global dance music. The idea to use helmets actually was born out of a lame Halloween costume. Go figure. Still, what do you think they’re hiding from? The world? Ex lovers?? Maybe their scary robot faces are too much to take…
  • Deadmau5 – Deadmau5 actually named himself after finding a dead mouse in his computer. No joke and not very mice is it (lol)? He also appeared in ‘Gossip Girl’. Terrifying…
  • Teddybears – These guys really know how to be ironic. If you’re familiar with the Swedish or Norwegian rock scenes then you’ll know they named themselves after our fluffy friends to make them stand out from the hundreds of ‘Megadeth’ copy cats out there. Fair play Teddies! Although, if you go down to the woods with these lot, be careful!
  • Lordi – Is it not scary enough that this band won Eurovision??
  • Kiss – Now, which of these facts scares you most? Kiss have never had a number one single in the US or Gene Simmons insured his tongue for $1,000,000. Fangfully his tongue is still in one piece…
