Alright, this is going to sound a little strange. A couple weeks from now, I'm going to be starting a one or two session campaign centered around the party being lycanthrope hunters. And we've already decided it's going to be very cheesy/not serious in the slightest. I was thinking about including music to make it even goofier.

Now, my one problem is this; while my friends greatly enjoy music, I don't. It's not that I don't like music, it's more that I am just indifferent and don't really see a point in it. As a result, the number of songs I know is rather... limited. At the same time, though, I think they would be amused by it, so I've come to the Playground for some help.

So far I have thought of Bad Moon Rising (bonus points because it's also in American Werewolf in London) and Hungry Like the Wolf. Can you guys think of any other song that is predominately about the full moon, lyanthropy, or wolves (even if it's just done metaphorically in the song)?

You could also use something like Monster by Skillet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWERYqWs5xY) for a lycanthrope bad guy that takes himself way too seriously.

Edit: Also, a couple lycanthropes must have an appropriately cheesy name to call out when changing, like a transformer. Eg, "Wolfclaw, transform!"

Just make sure you're using the right music for the right kind of lycanthrope (http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20070916) (although technically LYCANthrope does mean werewolf)

You can always go foreign with some Rammstein (the title translates to "you smell so good" and the music video is all about werewolves):

Play the intro to Stress by Justice whenever a werewolf transforms. It fits perfectly.

If you go down that musical route, there's always Iced Earth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i758tgh7J48).

You're a Wolf-by Sea wolf is lovely (i'd rather you use it in a serious horror campaign but w/e). It was used in i think the first or second episode of Being human. Its great because its mellow and it evokes the image of a person being told by a gypsy that he is a werewolf and on the full moon he will kill his greatest love, ect...

I'm both happy that neither of these have been posted yet and severely disappointed in y'all's taste in werewolf music.
