Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Werewolves - A Manchester Morgue Compilation


It's been brought to my attention that my last compilation Young Monsters In Love violated the DMA, so that post has been removed (not by me). So apologies for anyone who didn't have a chance to download it, but I'm just going to keep it down to stay out of trouble.

Hopefully this new compilation I'm posting today makes it for more than 2 weeks. This compilation is comprised of rare, or unreleased music featured in films (like the first few compilations I did). I call it Rock 'em Sock 'em Werewolves. This is kind of a B-Side to the last compilation like this called Vampire Tickle Fight, as I ripped/gathered a lot of the songs at the same time I was working on that one.

The title was inspired by a discussion with a friend over why they didn't have any other Rock 'em Sock 'ems. Why only robots? The conversation actually went on for several minutes, this compilation could've been called a number of things - Rock 'em Sock 'em Frankensteins, Rock 'em Sock 'em C.H.U.D.s, Rock 'em Sock 'em Golems - but I had just downloaded some Werewolf by Nights from The Comic Vault and there was an issue with Werewolf by Night fighting some other werewolf, so Werewolves it is.

The colors of the cover were actually a bit garish, a purple werewolf on blue background was a bit of an eyesore. So I tried something a little different for this one. Still a bit of an eyesore, but I think it's decent enough. I know, it's a bit dark, but I'll lighten it up later on.

The audio quality on these varies wildly, but on most of these it's not my fault.

The tracklist:
  1. Leif Garret & Fat White Guy - Cheerleader Rap from Cheerleader Camp
  2. Peter Yellen and The Breakers - Fall Break from The Mutilator
  3. Toxic Avenger Part II theme
  4. Dan Skye - Toxic Avenger Part III theme
  5. Calamari Wrestler - DVD music video
  6. Cynthia Zirow - Into The Black from Ozone aka Street Zombies.
  7. Billy Barber - Beat of the Heart from Scared Stiff
  8. Bill Marx/Marilynn Lovell - Torment from Scream Blacula Scream
  9. Cry No More - Recipe for Romance from Bloody New Year
  10. Lisa Edwards - Playing With Fire from Dead-End Drive-In
  11. Dirt Bike Annie - Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things from Die and Let Live
  12. Karaoke Terror End Credits
  13. Drunk Horse - National Lust from Murder Party
  14. Didus & The Fabulous Mascarenes - So and So from There's Nothing Out There
  15. Maestro Fresh Wes - She's Gonna Freak You from Prom Night III
  16. Kit Fuller - Love Me Deadly from Love Me Deadly
  17. Shandi - Living on the Edge from Making the Grade
  18. Shayna Zaid - Among the Dead from Flight of the Living Dead
  19. Marilynn Lovell - My Dream from Terror at Red Wolf Inn
  20. Doug Riley - Cannibal Girls End Credit Theme
  21. L.A. Posse - Lost in Time from Waxwork II
  22. Ted "Rhyme Throwah" Raimi - Bustin' Brains from The Man With The Screaming Brain
  23. The McCain Brothers - The Legend of Guandi from My Name is Bruce

And now, some notes on select tracks:

Leif Garret & Fat White Guy - Cheerleader Rap from Cheerleader Camp. What's better than a fat white guy rapping? Leif Garret rapping with said fat white guy.

Peter Yellen and The Breakers - Fall Break from The Mutilator.

Toxic Avenger Part II theme - Can't find out who plays this one, so I'll just have to assume the band was comprised of: Toxie on Vocals and rythym guitar, Lloyd Kaufman on Lead Guitar, Ike & Addley sharing Bass duties, and The Fat Guy Who Went Nutzoid in Fat Guy Goes Nutzoid on Drums.

Dan Skye - Toxic Avenger Part III theme

Calamari Wrestler - Not sure the artist or song title here. It's listed as "Music Video" on the DVD. And if you go to the Pathfinder DVD site, they don't even mention there being a "music video" on the DVD at all.

Dirt Bike Annie - Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things from Die and Let Live. Zombie comedy/ Sandlot homage. Seriously, there are at least half a dozen references to the movie The Sandlot. Characters named Bennie and Squints, PT Flyers scene, "You're killing me Smalls!"...that's only 3 but I haven't seen this is like 2 years, so I'm a bit unsure on the rest.

Karaoke Terror End Credits. The credits to this were surprisingly Japanese. What this means is that I have no idea what this song is called or who is singing it. I'm hoping someone out there can fill me in.

Drunk Horse - National Lust from Murder Party. On the last comp I posted a 2Tite song from Murder Party, but I'm not as big on this one so I left it for this one. Too much "Whoo, whoo" for me, reminds me of Forty Licks. I hate that song.

Didus & The Fabulous Mascarenes - So and So from There's Nothing Out There. Best band name ever? These guys sound like what I think a band of schizophrenic clowns would sound like.

Maestro Fresh Wes - She's Gonna Freak You from Prom Night III. I have no idea why, but this was my favorite Prom Night. Not the best - in fact, probably the worst overall - but still the most entertaining for me. For the curious:
Prom Night III
Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night 2
Prom Night IV
Prom Night

Kit Fuller - Love Me Deadly from Love Me Deadly. Hands down the creepiest song I've posted in some time. It's a ballad, really, but something about it is just eerie. Maybe it's the light necrophilia taking place while this is playing in the film.

Shandi - Living on the Edge from Making the Grade. This was a failed attempt at starting up a Judd Nelson trilogy. Turns out you need a hit on your hands before you can make a second and third movie to complete a trilogy.

Shayna Zaid - Among the Dead from Flight of the Living Dead. The song is only as long as the opening credits to the movie, a more complete version of the song was never recorded. This is actully nothing like any of her other music at all. She plays a kind of...ugh...Indie Folk in her day to day. Blah.

Marilynn Lovell - My Dream from Terror at Red Wolf Inn. This is actually Marilynn's second item on this compilation. She wrote the music for Torment from Scream Blacula Scream.

Doug Riley - Cannibal Girls End Credit Theme. This is a "lost" Canadian film starring Eugene Levy and Andrea Martin, and directed by this guy called Ivan Reitman. I don't know him, I think his son directed Juno or something. This one probably has the roughest quality of the bunch, being that it was ripped from a super old VHS tape.

Ted "Rhyme Throwah" Raimi - Bustin' Brains from The Man With The Screaming Brain. For anyone wondering what Ted "Theodore" Raimi would sound like rapping with a goofy accent, wonder no more.

The McCain Brothers - The Legend of Guandi from My Name is Bruce. I'm in the minority as I really enjoyed Bruce's performance as Bruce in Bruce. Sure it was on the corny side, and it could've been more gruesome, and a pair of unclothed hooters could've made an appearance, but I like it just the way it is.

Where the hell did you find this!?!?!?! "Fall Break from The Mutilator"

Nice compilation, as always. This one almost qualifies as "scholarly" in its obsessive devotion to B-movies of different eras.

(Oh, and Dirt Bike Annie's a cocktease band. Or so I've heard.)
