“Living Dead Girl” is the second single off Rob Zombie’s solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe. It was named after Jean Rollin’s 1982 film. The line, “Who is this irresistible creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?” in the beginning of the song is from the trailer of the film, Lady Frankenstein. The music in the beginning of the song is taken from the trailer of the Wes Craven film, The Last House on the Left. This song was also Shelly Martinez entrance themes in Ohio Valley Wrestling. In this song, Zombie sings, “Goldfoot’s machine creates another fiend so beautiful they make you kill”. This relates to the villain played by Vincent Price in the 1965 film Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine and the 1966 film Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs. Also, he sings “Operation Filth they love to love the wealth of an SS whore making scary sounds.” This is possibly a reference to the notorious 1974 film Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS.
The song also appears on Rob Zombie’s Past, Present & Future, the greatest hits album The Best of Rob Zombie, and a remix is contained on American Made Music to Strip By. The original mix was featured in both Bride of Chucky and Gus Van Sant’s Psycho remake, appearing on the album of the latter, the “Naked Exorcism Mix” appeared on the The Crow: Salvation Soundtrack in 2000. The song was covered by Sinus Giddy for The Electro-Industrial Tribute to Rob Zombie in 2002. Also a version of the song is played in a club in the TV show Angel, while the character Faith tears apart a dance club. The sleeve for the CD single features an image Rob Zombie’s wife Sheri Moon.
