Two tracks from Rob Zombie‘s upcoming The Munsters movie emerged on Tuesday (July 26), according to Bloody Disgusting and Revolver. The spooky, kitschy selections — in keeping with the rocker’s uniqueness as an auteur – are called “It’s Zombo (The Zombo Theme)” and “The House of Zombo.”
However, there’s no need to wait for the official soundtrack to own them — the two tunes are already available on the It’s Zombo! 12″ single from Waxwork Records. The full soundtrack arrives in September. Zombie’s The Munsters comes to home video (digital, Blu-ray and DVD) on Sept. 27. It will then stream on Netflix.
The Munsters Soundtrack, “It’s Zombo (The Zombo Theme)”
The two tracks aren’t Zombie-sung selections like his 2003 House of 1000 Corpses title cut. (Though it’s yet to be seen if The Munsters will feature a Zombie-led number or two.) “It’s Zombo” is sung by characters from the film, while “The House of Zombo” is more of a sound effects display.
But who’s Zombo? Zombo is a character from the original The Munsters TV sitcom from the 1960s. It follows the fictional lives of the Frankenstein-like Herman Munster, his vampiric wife, Lily, her grandfather, their niece, Marilyn, and the couple’s werewolf son, Eddie. Zombie’s “Dragula” was named after a vehicle from the show.
