If you’ve seen the feed on your social media or spoken to your nerdy friends in the past few weeks, you probably heard about this show called Stranger Things. The Netflix show is an homage to all things ’80s, referencing important icons like Steven Spielberg, Stephen King and John Carpenter. In the same way that it’s somewhat of an homage to ’80s horror movies, here are five songs that were also inspired by horror movies from the 70s and 80s.

5) Deicide – Dead by Dawn


Every fan of classic horror flicks has seen Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, the story of five friends that traveled to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly released flesh-possessing demons. The movie is a cult classic and took off in popularity through the 80’s and its impact touched Florida’s death metal masters Deicide, who paid tribute to the film with “Dead by Dawn.”
