Trivia: Which Halloween song was briefly banned for being “too morbid”?
Werewolves of London
Correct Answer: Monster Mash
So why is this answer correct? : It’s hard to believe that the BBC deemed the “Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett unfit for the airwaves in the U.K. when it debuted in 1962. Lyrics like “It was a graveyard smash” were seen as “too morbid” at the time. That same year, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in the U.S. The ban was eventually lifted in the U.K. However, it wasn’t until 1973 that the tune finally entered the British charts, ultimately reaching the No. 3 spot.
