It was a graveyard smash! Believe it or not this song was not written by Bobby Brown and Mike Tyson. Nope, this song is actually written and performed Bobby “Boris” Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers back in 1962. It was the #1 song on in American from October 20-27th that year bumping off ‘Sherry’ by The Four Seasons for the #1 spot. Decades later, The Monster Mash is still a Halloween favourite.
