Sadly, there’s no video to go along with today’s holiday flashback, but if it existed, I imagine it would involve lots of moody, soft-focus shots of smeared black eyeliner. Also, velvet.

For the uninitiated, allow me to cite the terse and (I suspect) entirely earnest Wikipedia entry on Ministry’s synthy little goth anthem:

“‘(Every Day Is) Halloween’ is a 1984 single by Ministry, re-released in 2010. The title and lyrics refer to goth subculture, particularly clothing, such as in the passage ‘I dress this way just to keep them at bay.’ It also questions the intolerance and lack of acceptance for others who are different.”

What it doesn’t mention is Cuban-born Al Jourgensen’s ridiculous faux-British accent, oh-so-critical to the song’s appeal.
