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.

  1. There are a couple songs that are absolutely perfect, They speak of the themes possessed by somebody who is a Lycan, the transformation etc. They don’t have “wolf” in the name but that doesn’t mean anything.

    Coward – Black Light Burns

    Fight Inside – Red

  2. “Howl” by Florence + The Machine. It takes a few listens to get the lyrics, but it is totally about werewolves and even sort of quotes The Wolf Man! :)

  3. E Nomine – Das Tier in Mir
    The lyrics actually are saying he’s a wolf, when he’s in the woods at night he prowls and hunts, it’s really cool with both soothing, soft singing, and pretty “spooky” I guess male singing. Plus, who doesn’t love German rock or Latin chants? XD

  4. Florence and the machine – Howl
    talks about becomeing a beast and even has the werewolf poem from the wolfman in it (a man whos pure of heart and says his prayrs by night…)

  5. Rasputina does a cover of bad moon rising that is really in character, and I’ve always associated Three Days Grace’s “animal I’ve become” with some sort of shapeshifting, but that is considering that I look into songs for lycanthropic allusion that is probably not intentional.

  6. How the hell do you not have

    Timeless Miracle – Curse of the werewolf
    and
    Timeless Miracle – Return of the werewolf

    They are the two best werewolf songs I have ever heard in my life, it’s power metal btw.

  7. Babel had a song called ‘Howling’ I believe – it’s from the soundtrack to Howling II: Your Sister Is A Werewolf – it’s not great but it is a Werewolf song

  8. Bullet For My Valentine’s “Waking the Demon” has a music video featuring a werewolf, and the lyrics fit as well :3

  9. Hey guys! go to youtube and type in Wolf music and click the one with a pack of wolves and a big wolf head in the sky. Its just just i don’t know how to say it….

  10. Maybe already were mentioned, but:

    Dio – Lock Up the Wolves
    U2 – Raised By Wolves
    Cultus Ferox – Wolfsballade
    Powerwolf – Night Of The Werewolves
    Sabaton – Wolfpack

    And these two I guess most of you never heard:
    Paul Winter – Wolf Eyes
    Ruslana – Dance With Wolves

    To be honest it seems like there is a thousands songs about wolves, hehe!

    1. Yeah, sorry, but “Wolfpack” is about submarine warfare in WWII. About as far from werewolves as it gets.

  11. Within Temptation- The Howling
    (not literally about werewolves but it very much reminds me of them)

  12. Hey, I got a question. I’ve once had a song that started with questions… Lol. Anyway, a woman asking if the man was ready to become a werewolf. By God, I cannot remember the name of the song or by whom it is from. Can you help me??!
