Groovie Ghoulies

Fun In The Dark (1999)


Ah, it's been a while since I've heard some good ol' morbid pop-punk. For those of you unitiated with the Ghoulies, they're really nice, friendly, cool, music-making people -- except that most of their songs have to do with death, witchcraft, etc. There is nothing wrong with this. In fact, I rather enjoy it, because I can never tell if they're being serious or joking. With song titles as "(she's got a) Brain Scrambling Device," "Don't Make Me Kill You Again," and "(she's my) Vampire Girl" you can pretty much figure out the lyrics without even hearing the band. There's one problem with that, though -- you should hear this band, because they are masters of the Lookout! pop-punk style. Plus there's girl vocals sometimes! You can't go wrong with a girl singing "Have your way with me," can you?
