10 Bands That Were Haunted While Recording

Originally posted by WhatCulture


All rock and roll has to have a little bit of magic to become classic. Even if you want to just get by playing the same three chords over and over again, there’s something about the way that bands play off each other that makes for some of the greatest music of the last century. Then again, it always helps to get some assistance from the paranormal as well.

For all of these different stripes of rock and roll, the common thread behind these albums are just how spooky they were to be a part of, with different spiritual beings coming in and out of the studio during the recording. While it’s easy to just chalk a lot of this up to rock and roll myths and legends, there’s actually a bit of truth to a handful of these as well, as some musicians appear to be severely shaken up by what they experienced in between recordings and some even attempting to make contact with the supposed spirits that were haunting the grounds.

Whether or not they actually captured anything paranormal is up for debate, but the songs still manage to hold up regardless, taking the common tropes that rock and roll is known for and making tracks that are much more than your typical throwaway filler material. While these records might not be for everyone necessarily, it’s nice to know that these bands have fans on the other side.
