American heavy metal singer songwriter Rob Zombie’s ‘Living Dead Girl‘ was played on the soundtrack of the newly released HBO Max series Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin — Season 1, Episode 2, “Chapter Two: The Spirit Queen”
The track was the second single from Rob Zombie’s 13-track solo debut studio album Hellbilly Deluxe, which came out in February, 1999 via the Geffen record label.
It charted in the United States at #7 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks, and at #22 on the US Alternative Airplay chart.
The song itself is an interesting mish-mash of references and lines from cult classic movies like Daughters of Darkness, Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine and Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs.
Rob Zombie’s ‘Living Dead Girl‘ has also been played on the soundtracks of TV shows like Dawson’s Creek, In the Flesh, and Angel.
The song’s official music video was based on scenes from the now-cult classic movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, with Zombie playing The Doctor and his wife, Sherie Moon, as The Living Dead Girl.
The video itself was so popular, it currently has over 57 million views on YouTube.
