Ok, for those of you interested in hunting vampires (or werewolves, zombies, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, etc.), this is a list of awesome tunes to set the mood for some good old-fashioned monster slaying. Also this is in semi-alphabetical order because I was going through the music on my phone and adding random things as I thought of them.
  1. Hell's Bells - AC/DC
    Ok, so some of these songs will definitely have appeared on the Supernatural soundtrack. If there's one thing that show has always been good at, it's setting the mood with some classic rock.
  2. When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
    This is just an amazing song. I would never say that Kashmir is overrated, but I think it's a shame that that's always the go-to hard rock Zeppelin song people pick when there's this gem.
  3. All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
    Just an all-around awesome song. A lot of the ones without explanations fall under this category.
  4. Run Through the Jungle - CCR
    Dark and foreboding. Very fitting.
  5. Born Under a Bad Sign - Cream
    Always good to have a few songs about the supernatural in a hunting playlist.
  6. Gun Street Girl - Tom Waits
    Quiet and brooding with a touch of bleakness.
  7. Seasons - Chris Cornell
    Same as above. A lot of brooding is necessary for the serious vampire hunter. Bonus: this is the song from Man of Steel where Superman hitchhikes to maybe Alaska?
  8. Season of the Witch - Donovan
  9. Devil Woman - Cliff Richard
  10. Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Öyster Cult
  11. Dream On - Aerosmith
  12. War - Edwin Starr
    Good for preparing for battle (vampiric or otherwise). The irony of this anti-war song is that it's great for violent action sequences.
  13. Uku - Dengue Fever
  14. Extreme Ways - Moby
  15. Far From Any Road - The Handsome Family
    aka the theme from True Detective Season 1
  16. Nevermind - Leonard Cohen
    aka the theme from True Detective Season 2
  17. Gimme Danger - Iggy & the Stooges
  18. Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
    AMAZING song. That is all.
  19. Grounds for Divorce - Elbow
    Used in the British version of Being Human as one character was prepping for a vampire hunt.
  20. Highway to Hell - AC/DC
  21. Hunger of the Pine - Alt-J
  22. Icky Thump - The White Stripes
  23. Needle in the Hay - Elliott Smith
  24. No Quarter - Led Zeppelin
    Bleak as hell and great.
  25. Oats in the Water - Ben Howard
    Also great. Heard this one on The Walking Dead.
  26. One More Cup of Coffee - Bob Dylan
  27. Paint It, Black - The Rolling Stones
  28. Peace Frog - The Doors
  29. The End - The Doors
  30. People Are Strange - The Doors
    This one's in The Lost Boys, an absolute classic.
  31. Play With Fire - The Rolling Stones
  32. Promontory - Randy Edelman & Trevor Jones
    Very dramatic. For a final confrontation-style mood.
  33. White Wedding - Billy Idol
  34. Rock Me Amadeus - Falco
    For heading to a vampire den in your DeLorean. Also it's the '80s.
  35. Sail - AWOLNATION
  36. Run - AWOLNATION
  37. Search and Destroy - Iggy & the Stooges
  38. Short Change Hero - The Heavy
  39. Sinner Man - Nina Simone
  40. Splitting the Atom - Massive Attack
  41. Superstition - Stevie Wonder
  42. Take Care of Business - Nina Simone
  43. Tigerlily - La Roux
  44. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
  45. Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi
  46. When I'm Small - Phantogram
  47. White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
  48. Wrong - Depeche Mode
  49. The X Files - Mark Ayres
    Because it is completely necessary.
  50. Maneater - Hall & Oates
  51. Serpents (Basement) - Sharon Van Etten
    Another great one I heard on TWD.
  52. Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas
    Another Supernatural entry. For all your season finales, a good song to do a season recap to.
