Fresh tracks from White Zombie are creeping towards the Rock Band Music Store on October 25th, kicking into overdrive with “Thunder Kiss ’65,” from the band’s 1992 major label debut, La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1. White Zombie fans can also pick up “Super-Charger Heaven” – known to many as “Devilman” due to the song’s repeating, hard-driving chorus – from 1995’s Astro-Creep: 2000.

“Living Dead Girl,” from Rob Zombie’s 1998 solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe, and “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” from British rockers The Darkness round out next week’s killer selection of rock n’ roll perfect for any Halloween Rock Band celebration!

    And for those who were trying to solve all the clues...

    Ebony (black) and Ivory (white) = The Darkness and White Zombie

    The Black Lantern ring is from the Blackest Night comic event (another Darkness reference) and brought many characters back as zombies (another White/Rob Zombie reference).

    Lady Frankenstein: Living Dead Girl (my personal favorite song of the week) opens with a quote from the trailer for that movie. (watch it here, it's the second line)

    Rooftop Storm is obviously a reference to White Zombie - Thunder Kiss '65 (it even mentions Zombies in the effect text).

    The pirate costumes were for Halloween, of course. Something needs to balance out the zombies, and I've already done enough ninja posting in the thread.

    Everything else was pretty much a red herring.

    Congrats to Dog for randomly guessing a song right before I'd even started hinting. ;)

    I was under the impression we already had Thunder Kiss '65. Guess not. But man, I think the big news this week is The Darkness. That's going to be EPIC. Goodbye vocal chords.

    It's not Stevie... but it'll do. Gotta listen to the Darkness track, and check out "Super Charger Heaven" again to make sure I wanna buy it, but "Living Dead Girl" and "Thunder Kiss 65" are both definitely bought.

    Thunderkiss '65 was the first song I ever played on Guitar Hero, at a Halloween party, as a matter of fact.

    Nostalgiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

    Well, we got it! I guess it is sort of Halloween themed, White ZOMBIE, Rob ZOMBIE, and the Darkness. There's one user on here that really likes the Darkness, so they'll be happy.

    Anyway, probably won't buy anything this week, but I'll check out IBIATCL. This checks off two Guitar Hero songs, too.

    "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" + "Living Dead Girl" (the first Rob Zombie related song I ever heard) + "Thunder Kiss '65" (GH nostalgia) = WIN!!

    Only know that The Darkness song, and purchase will depend on charts.

    I'll have to listen to the others, see if I recognize and/or like anything.

    I've always thought The Darkness would be a fun band to have on RB. I would've liked there to be more than one song, but oh well. Permission to Land is a really fantastic album.

    I'll definitely be picking up that one song. Probably none of the others.

    Yeah I think I got it confused with that GH3 White Zombie song that Rock Band released a while back. I'm all up to speed now, though.
