Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means&mdash; it is finally time to turn up your favorite spooky bop, &quot;The Monster Mash.&quot;It&#39;s practically impossible not to put on your best spooky voice and sing along to this banger that is, no joke, scientifically proven to be the single best Halloween song in existence.But get this&mdash; you&#39;ve never heard the actual &quot;Monster Mash&quot; song. Confused? Allow Twitter to explain.As pointed out by Twitter user @Lawrence_Miles, the 1962 song &quot;The Monster Mash&quot; by Bobby Pickett is merely a song ABOUT a song called &quot;The Monster Mash.&quot; The narrator is describing the scene as an observer, and therefore you never actually get to hear the music all those monsters and ghouls were jamming to.Guys. I&#39;m here to red-pill you all.You&#39;ve never heard the actual Monster Mash. You&#39;ve just heard a record *about* the Monster Mash.Yeah.&mdash; Lawrence Miles ⚫ (@Lawrence_Miles) October 8, 2017 Bobby Pickett is a non-monster recalling an occasion when he heard monsters mashing. At best, his recording is only a rough approximation.&mdash; Lawrence Miles ⚫ (@Lawrence_Miles) October 8, 2017 To put it mildly, people&#39;s minds were BLOWN.https://twitter.com/KevPharmacist/status/916963987333500928You also never heard the funky music the white boy played, and Feliz Navidad never wished you a Merry Christmas in English.&mdash; Going Rampant (@goingrampant) October 8, 2017 Ceci n&#39;est pas une Monster Mash.&mdash; Dagoth Urlon Musk (@maruhkati) October 8, 2017 https://twitter.com/JessaKent/status/917001015412609024Now, there was some controversy surrounding this statement&mdash;mainly people argued that &quot;The Monster Mash&quot; was a dance and not a song at all.The monster mash is the dance, not the song...&mdash; Kyle Orland (@KyleOrl) October 8, 2017 But a lyrical fact-check proved that untrue:Incorrect: it&#39;s both the dance and the song, as detailed by the line &quot;He did the Mash, they played the Monster Mash.&quot;&mdash; Nick Chester (@nickchester) October 8, 2017 So yeah, everything you know is a lie! But hey, don&#39;t let that stop you from doing the &quot;Transylvania twist&quot; at all the Halloween parties you attend.
