167 Werewolf Inspired Songs for Werewolves

September 22nd, 2009 § 145

threeweresWelcome back faithful readers and hello new readers,
If you are on this site reading this I am assuming you like werewolves. Right? Good. You probably like music as well, because come on, who doesn’t? So if you mix the two you have werewolf-y musical goodness! Hurray!  This post is dedicated to music that has to do with werewolves. This list of werewolf songs, whether they be about actual werewolves or have a somewhat were-theme, is pretty massive and I have that list for you at the bottom of this post. Since there are SO many, I’ll just cover a few worth a listen…

1. Warren Zevon: Werewolves of London – This is probably the best known werewolf song out there. You got the classic rock sound, a bloody story, and a catchy beat; the makings of an awesome werewolf song. So great in fact that many bands have covered the song over the years.

2. Metallica: Of Wolf and Man – You can’t have a list of werewolf songs and leave out the hugely popular Metallica song, Of Wolf and Man. Whether you like metal or not you can’t help but want to scream along “So seek the wolf in thyself!” Cue the head banging… Now!

3. The Cramps: I Was a Teenage Werewolf – This is one of those weird, trippy 80’s songs that you can’t help but love right away. You listen to the odd lyrics, the excellent guitar riffs and you just fall into a musical daze where all you can do is sway your hips to the beat. You can watch a crazy live performance of the song here.

4. Shakira: She Wolf – Haha! How is this for different? A mainstream pop singer, singing a werewolf themed song. Ok ok, the song may be a bit cheesy but you have to admit it’s catchy and the video is so damn sexy it makes me wish I had a cage of my own to play in.

5. Moonspell: Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade) – A beautiful gothic rock song with haunting lyrics… “She brought the Night hidden in her sad Wolf eyes…A werewolf masquerade. In her eyes the wolfshade.” Moonspell has quite a few other werewolf songs as well, all worth checking out.

6.  Heather Alexander: Wolfen One – If you like folk music, you’ll like this song. It’s pretty difficult to find a wolf song by a woman that isn’t folk. This song is mellow, has a great drum beat and is a song to sit back and relax to.

7. The Misfits: We Bite – We covered rock, metal, pop, folk – so now it’s time for punk and who better than The Misfits. We Bite is your old school punk song, perfect for crowd surfing and breaking stuff.

8.  Creedence Clearwater Revival: Bad Moon Rising – This song may not be about werewolves but it’s used in plenty of werewolf films and can for sure be seen from a werewolf point of view. A classic song everyone knows and loves and can’t help but sing along to.

9. Ozzy Osbourne: Bark at the Moon – This may not be the greatest song of all time but come on, it’s a classic. Plus the music video is entertaining; who doesn’t love bad acting, campy effects and straight-jacketed Ozzy?

10. Type O Negative: Wolf Moon – And we end this song list with a well loved goth band and their incredibly eerie song, Wolf Moon. The vocals are so powerful in this song, as is the instrumentals; it sends chills down your back.

    20. Wolfie says:

    26. Swedish publisher Malört Förlag (Wormwood Publishing) has recently released a record with eleven original songs inspired by Swedish werewolf myths: “Werewolf Songs – Music Inspired by Swedish Folklore”.

    27. hey wht about michael jacksons thriller

    28. Richard Wantuch says:

      Great list. You can also ‘Wolf Like Me’ by TV On The Radio. Excellent song by an incredible band!

    29. Grace says:

      The Wolf by Fever Ray is pretty good. In the movie Red Riding Hood. Very haunting and eerie :D

    30. Spence says:

      I remember as a child in the 90′s, there was a specific song & music video I used to watch on the TV. It is either 80′s or 90′s. The only thing I can do is try to describe what I remember.
      In the beginning, there is one man sitting on his porch in a rocking chair singing. The house is in the middle of nowhere at night. It appears to be a desert area.
      As the night changes, there is a huge moon when he looks out the window. He then starts to transform into a werewolf.
      He starts to go crazy & howls all over.
      Anyone know what I’m talking about? Your help will be greatly appreciated cause the search for this is driving me mental!

    31. Me no likey likey silver says:

    32. ShellH says:

      I see you have a lot of filk artists here on your list but I don’t see my favorite song which is Wolfman’s Bride by Ookla the Mok. It’s an awesome song about the lead character from the old 1941 film The Wolfman with Lon Chaney Jr. And how he can never have a wife because he’s the wolfman. :D It’s a really great amusing song with a great rock feel.

    33. javion says:

    34. DarkSoulKnight says:

      Omnia-Wolf Song

    35. Weisser wolf says:

      Check out blessed by a broken heart-she wolf!!

    36. Jojo says:

      Wolf Like Me by Tv On The Radio
      Rasputina’s cover of Bad Moon Rising
      Bitten By the Wolf by Chickenfoot
      Wolf At the Door by Radiohead
      Howl by Florence + The Machine

      Hope theses ones make your list. Pretty good.

    37. Raya says:

      Very nice list !
      Now I need to start listening to all these songs…

      How about Cat Power’s “Werewolf” song ?

      And maybe it’s just me, but when I think about werewolf music, Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” always comes first.

    38. Ramstien: Du Richest so gut

    39. Pup says:

      Has anyone done the leg work to complete this collection so that it may be shared…? I’m hoping to save myself some time of doing it myself… if not… this might take a while. But I will do it.

      • Raya says:

        I’ve started an Excel file with all the songs listed in the post and comments.
        Right now I’m trying to find all album names.
        When it’s done, I’ll look for youtube links (this may take some time, though).

    40. Anne Molloy says:

      This may be a long shot but does anyone remember a werewolf song on SOMA FM’s Doomed channel? It was years ago and I can’t remember anything about the artist or the title and I don’t think they play it anymore. I know that is very vague but if you like werewolves and you listen to the station I don’t think you’d ever forget it. I have e-mailed Lucretia but no response thus far….

      • Raya says:

        I had a look at their twitter playlist (found some not-werewolf-related-but-still-very-interesting stuff, btw).

        Anyway, found two new werewolf songs there :
        Ah Cama-Sotz – The Howl Of The Werewolf
        Coil – Tenderness Of Wolves

        Seems like they are still playing these songs on Doomed though, so it’s probably not the one you are looking for.
