Rock Out With John 5 And The Creatures…AND The Universal Monsters!

The only positive side about knowing nothing virtually about any music at any period of time is that I can count on friends to steer me in the right direction. Yesterday on Facebook Matt Lappie was kind enough to share this AWESOME music video by John 5 and the Creatures entitled “Making Monsters”.

Friends, I can hear what you are asking though. What does this have to do with the Retroist?!

Well, that is a valid question and I can say that while Making Monsters employs some beautiful stop motion animation of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Wolf Man…it also features glorious clips from those very Universal Monster films.

Plus there is that whole Aurora Creature from the Black Lagoon model kit kicking it off…

…and to make it even better the music by John 5 and the Creatures is really great. I suppose that is only natural as he has worked with David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie!

So crank it up, assuming you won’t get in trouble at work of course, and join the Monsters out on the dance floor!
