As you’ve likely already figured out, that’s a particularly relevant topic for MTV Movies Blog. I didn’t have much trouble with my pick: “Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight.” Here’s what I had to say to the Newsroom audience:
“This one is easy for me, though it may earn me a few behind-the-back snickers around the office. The soundtrack to “Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight” remains my favorite to this day. It dropped while I was in high school, and every track was something I wanted to go home and crank up to 11. Let’s start with the face-melting crunch: Sepultura, Biohazard, Pantera, Megadeth, Ministry, Rollins Band, Machine Head, Filter, Melvins — it’s enough to make a budding young metalhead’s skull explode. “The Crow” soundtrack almost edges this one out for me, but “Demon Knight” ultimately wins for introducing me to Gravediggaz. The record’s closing track, “1-800-Suicide,” showed me the shock and awe that is hip-hop horrorcore. You heard me: Shock. And. Awe.”
