So everyone loves a good Zombie film, program or game! With the return of the biggest Zombie TV show, the majorly successful The Walking Dead I thought this would be a good opportunity to look at some of the best zombie inspired/themed rock offerings to 'get your teeth into'! Not all songs are strictly about zombies in this post, and in the extended playlist below, but they are related/associated in some way and can easily be linked to them!
Get yourself in a zombie state of mind below!!

To get things in motion in a crazy fast fashion, it has to be what I think is one of the best Zombie inspired songs by one of the biggest metal bands from the US! This song featured on the movie soundtrack for the first Resident Evil film, which is inspired by the popular Capcom games. Be prepared to lose your shit!!
Slipknot - My Plague
It would be offensive to not feature this next song/artist as they embody the very essence of the living dead, and even go as far as to have 'Zombie' in their band name! They are also multi-skilled, as well as writing music about the undead, the front-man is also a film director/producer of horror films...
Rob Zombie - Living Dead Girl
This song has to be mentioned - it's relevant, infectiously catchy and fun as hell! The song itself is inspired by a film of the same name and is taken from the Transylvania 90210: Songs of Death, Dying, and the Dead album. Wednesday 13 is the stage name of Joseph Poole, who is largely know as the front-man of horror punk band, Murderdolls. You seriously need to listen to this!
Wednesday 13 - I Walked With A Zombie
Again drawing influence from the Resident Evil films, this time turning to the third instalment of the films, with Resident Evil Extinction soundtrack, where this song features, as well as playing during the credits. The alt-rock band from Las Vegas recorded, "Contagious", which was based on the video game Resident Evil 4.
Searchlight - Contagious
My last zombie contribution comes from a Swedish hard rock band, with the appropriately titled, 'Dead Rising'! They formed back in 1996 and are signed with the popular record label, Spinefarm Records.
Sparzanza - Dead Rising
I haven't featured all the zombie-themed songs here, but check out the rest in this deadly playlist I have created!
