Zombie Songs for the Walking Dead

Songs about the living dead and zombies, for the AMC Walking Dead TV series soundtrack.

Zombies are very popular now in movies and pop culture, so it was only a matter of time before we got a zombie TV series. As it happens, AMC's "The Walking Dead" is pretty dam good. I've enjoyed it immensely, and the quality is better than many big budget movies. Thus we needed to put together a good rock song soundtrack for the powerful series: songs that would liven up to the show itself. So we've found the best songs about zombies and the living dead for a Walking Dead play list.

Here are the Top 40 zombie songs for the Walking Dead:

1 - Zombie by the Cranberries, an obvious topper, even though it's actually a war protest song.

2 - Death on Two Legs by Queen from A Night At the Opera. They really are dead, and shuffling on two legs.

3 - All you Zombies by the Hooters

4 - City of the Dead by the Clash

5 - We Are the Dead by David Bowie

6 - Alive Again by Chicago

19 - Wake Up Dead by Megadeth

Looking forward to another season of "Fear The Walking Dead" this year from AMC, now that TWD had finished, more zombies and more intricate plot lines. Love the characters so far.
