167 Werewolf Inspired Songs for Werewolves

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.

    You’re A Wolf- Sea Wolf

  3. Some songs you might have missed,…: ( Some of’em ‘Werewolf’ish, some of’em a little off topic.Some i don’t know the album name, so i put X in /album/. ) :)

    Rancid/X/Wolf

    this is all i can think of at the moment (these songs are on my pc), but if i find anymore i will be sure to post them here.

  4. Def Leppard/Hysteria/Animal

    Found this one while going through the songs on my mp3 player
    just for reminder, any songs i find i will post here ^.^

  5. what about WITHIN TEMPTATION – THE HOWLING ? If we’re going with songs that interpret well into werewolf songs, this seems to fit the bill…

  6. The Howling by Within Temptation
    Dangerous by The Who “Can you feel it in the shadows / Watching you, touching you / Changing you into a mad dog / Howling at the moon”

    1. Little Red Riding Hood is *actually* a cover of a tune from 1966, by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, who also did Wooly Bully.

  7. Another song that isn’t on the list is Werewolves of Armenia by Powerwolf. A really awesome song that I just can’t stop listening to. It is from their Bible of the Beast album. Also, their first album, Lupus Dei, is pretty much werewolf themed. Please, I urge you all to listen to them. They are amazingly awesome!!!

  8. I’m surprised that CocoRosie – Werewolf is absent from the list

    also – Werewolf by Gary Warren, later covered by The Born Losers is a must listen. Don Hinson & the Rigamorticians have an excellent 60s or 50s Halloween album out that includes the very fun “Werewolf Watusi.” Also for the record the “80s” song that user Billie mentions is the 60s song already listed – by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs of course.

    Still I commend the extensive research put into this list.

  9. Mouth by Bush
    -The Bush reminds me of the movie I first heard it, which was An American Werewolf in Paris and I think the lyrics suit.

    Du riechst so gut by Rammstein
    -The music video for the Rammsein song, while in parts maybe corny was still a good watch, to know you have the right one it starts off with a lady riding a horse.

  10. Alice Cooper’s DaDa has a song that really sounds like it could be from the view of a werewolf. It’s called Fresh Blood.

  11. Motorhead- In the Year of the Wolf, The Wolf, Snaggletooth, Night Side (werewolves, vampires, and general evil)

    Rob Zombie- Werewolf Baby, Werewolf Women of the SS

  12. how about any song from mate,feed,kill,repeat by slipknot
    its really based off of werewolves:the apocalypse, but werewolves none the less

  13. WHAT! no Timeless Miracle?
    they have ‘Curse of the werewolf’
    And ‘Return of the werewolf’

  14. Wolfen (Das Tier in mir) “Wolves (The Animal in me)” by E Nomine (a German band) can be found on the Finsternis album.

    The album in general seems to deal with the horror and occult such as werewolves and Dracula.

    1. I love that song. Also:

      Murder by Death – Ash
      “Who could tell the dogs from the men? I’ve seen their faces and I know where they’ve been. I know I’m with them, but I ain’t like that…”

      Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Do You Love Me?
      “I found God and all His devils inside her
      In my bed she cast the blizzard out
      A mock sun blazed upon her head
      So completely filled with light she was
      Her shadow fanged and hairy and mad”

      Andrew Jackson Jihad – Darkest Heart (I’m not sure if this is about loving a werewolf or a cannibal, either way it’s awesome)
      “Show me your fangs, show me your claws
      Break all my bones, break all my laws
      Show me your darkest heart
      So that I may rest in peace.
      Eat my arms
      Eat my legs
      Eat the flesh between my ribs
      Eat my face
      Eat my hair follicles
      Eat my brain
      So that I may rest in peace”

      Bobby Boris Picket and Crypt-kicker Five – Werewolf Watusi
      David Bowie – Bird Distraction (reading from Peter and the Wolf)
      The Fever – Crying Wolf and Little Lamb & the Shiny Silver Bullets
      Ed Harcourt – Little Silver Bullet
      Guana Bats – Werewolf Blues
      Radiohead – Wolf at the Door
      The Goo Goo Dolls – Full Forever
      Echo and the Bunnymen – Killing Moon

  15. Here’s some songs i didn’t see in the list
    Lycanthropy – Back to Zero
    The Howling – Blitzkid
    Blood of the Wolf – Calabrese
    Venomwolf – Calabrese
    Werewolf – Noctunes
    Wolf’s Howl – The Independents

    POWERWOLF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. “The Animal” by Disturbed
    “Waking The Demon” by Bullet for my Valentine

    Also, GrimWolf is a “Pure American Werewolf Metal” band, if that helps any. c:

  18. ancient – lycanthropy
    anthrax – alpha male
    anthrax – howling furies
    cradle of filth (128 ww songs)
    devil driver (around 40 ww songs)
    graveworm (12 or so that i know of)
    peices yall =)

  19. Some more great songs would be;
    Florence and the machine – howl
    Cat power – werewolf
    Cocorosie – werewolf
    Lunar click – a forest

  20. Awesome list! This might be a long shot but does anyone know of song where a woman howls throughout it. All I remember is ahhh hooo part but not the lyrics. It was a rock/electronica song and the singer reminded me a little of Amy Lee. Thanks

  21. Nice list! You should add:

    “No One Lives Forever” by Oingo Boingo. Complete with references to wolves, the gothy contemplation of mortality, and wolf-like howling. :)

  22. You forgot about Sonata Arctica’s “Full Moon”, that’s all about a confused werewolf being hunted down.

    1. huh, nevermind. I must have missed it. I did do a “find” on the page I mustn’t have seen it. Apologies

  23. I just have to say Shakira’s howl in “She Wolf” is so damn sexy!!!
    Even real wolves would agree with me^^
