Halloween video countdown: all-star "Bela Lugosi's Dead," Son House

As songs about vampires go, "Bela Lugosi's Dead" isn't really enough work for even one ghoul, let alone like seven dudes. But if you're going to put Nine Inch Nails on the road with Peter Murphy and TV on the Radio, you know you're gonna eventually end up with some kind of dreadful, hands-across-America version of the goth national anthem. The weird thing is watching them all do it in daylight -- and, even weirder, totally killing it. If you can somehow make it though that monstrosity, we're rewarding you with the best goth song ever written in the history of goth songs. Plot: man gets a letter says his wife is dead, comes home to inspect the corpse, is surprised to discover that he may actually have loved the old hag after all, picks up his suitcase and walks off into oblivion.

WATCH: Trent Reznor, Peter Murphy, and TVOTR, "Bela Lugosi's Dead"

WATCH: Son House, "Death Letter Blues"
