    Something different you may not have seen on other lists, which are mostly corny classics. Hopefully you’ll find something different on here!

    Red Right Hand
    A cover, but I prefer the straight-rocking sound of this one to the almost-cheesy original.

    Texas
    Traditionally creepy, with that slow, gothic feel and just a hint of fear.

    Sexy Results
    Sexy vocals and a good beat.

    Lust For A Vampyr
    Super catchy, swinging tune with a fun chorus and a truly unique sound.

    Nature of Inviting

    Unholy Thoughts
    Quick, light beats but a dark mood, like being chased down deserted streets at night.

    Gun in My Side
    Best driving song EVER, but also a good party song.

    Time Is Running Out
    The original awesome Muse song. Smooth with just the right amount of devious.

    Ruins
    Dark dance rock with good lyrics and one of the most unique vocalists out there.
