A song by Rob Zombie from
his album, The Sinister Urge. It is also the theme song to the movie he later directed. While
the musical portion of the song is fairly
simple, it is most
notable for beginning and ending with what sound like various television or radio broadcasts detailing the carnage inside the house, with lines like "Police have identified four victims, and plan
than just the four for the charges
filed today", as well as "...a large kettle
on the stove which held boiled body parts..." It is also peppered with various screams, sounds of chainsaws, and the occasional eerie
voice. Overall, it is the type of song that one would not want to first listen
to alone in a dark room.
Gentleman: "I do say, my good
man, what music
shall I select to be played during my dinner social this evening? I have looked at various selections, but I must say that they
all reek of feces -- metaphorically, of course."
Second Gentlemen: "Why, I do believe I have just the song! You must have heard
virtuoso Robert Cummings, commonly known
as Rob Zombie. His song, "House of 1000 Corpses", is just the kind of background music
own cannibalistic proceedings tonight!"
Gentlemen: "Oh, Winston, you know me only too well. Of course I shall play that song again! I will
be sure to save
for you this time; I know how you do like those exquisite
bits of human goodness."
