You know those Band Aid-style groups of musicians who perform together to raise awareness for some sort of charity? Well, here’s another one…this time in the name of Halloween! This all-star smorgasbord of artists consists of Arcade Fire! Karen O! Rilo Kiley! Wolf Parade! Beck! Feist! David Cross! Nardwuar the Human Serviette!. Oh, and a few weird looking sock puppets.

This is such a cool song. It was recorded back in 2005 by different Canadian and U.S musicians collectively known as the “North American Hallowe’en Prevention Initiative.” Check out the bands members, there’s even an infamous mistress of the dark.
Win Butler & Régine Chassagne (Arcade Fire)
Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth)
Syd Butler (Les Savy Fav)
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Jenny Lewis & Blake Sennett (Rilo Kiley)
Dan Boeckner & Spencer Krug (Wolf Parade)
Steve Jocz of Sum 41
Nick Diamonds and J’aime Tambeur (Islands)
I wish they would get together and record another song. Heck I’d be satisfied with just an Elvira ballad.
