Blue Oyster Cult's death-defying "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" takes on the Doors' woozy "People Are Strange" in round one of our Rock's Scariest Song battle. In honor of Halloween, we've chosen 16 of rock's scariest songs. (Don't Fear) The Reaper," which was released on Blue Oyster's Cult 1976 album, Agents of Fortune, attempts to make the inevitable a little less scary
Everybody – even those who don’t know Blue Öyster Cult from Southern Death Cult - knows the 1976 hit (Don’t Fear) The Reaper. It featured in that ‘more cowbell’ sketch on Saturday Night Live in 2000, and has been front-loaded onto dad rock compilation albums ever since. Melody Maker critics voted the Cult’s third LP, Secret Treaties, the best rock album of 1974. Among its devotees were future members of The Clash who would later hire its producer Sandy Pearlman. Its highlight, Dominance And Submission, is prime proto-punk: a snotty riff over which frontman Eric Bloom sings about hearing The Beatles on a car radio while a brother and sister are embroiled in some unspecified, but clearly questionable act in the back seat.

Blue Oyster Cult was on tour promoting their 14th album, Club Ninja, when this recording was made for the King Biscuit Flower Hour in March of 1986. The group had seen a number of highs and lows since first forming out of a Long Island-based boogie bar band called the Soft White Underbelly in 1971. Between their strong relationship with FM radio programmers and the support of horror film director John Carpenter (who featured the band's music in several of his films), BOC had become a charter member of the rock radio club.
Blue Oyster Cult only sings about vampires. That's what they do. I can't believe you fans are so slow to understand this. I have to admit I was amused though by the person who claimed that "Reaper" was about suicide because they have some mystical "anti-Christian" symbol on their album. is an 'explanation point'.
I noticed something really peculiar - unless I'm dyslexic, there is NO Blue Oyster Cult there. They are one of the best bands in rock music and blazed a lot of trails. In the late sixties, Buck Dharma, Allen Lanier, and Albert Bouchard started a band called the Soft White Underbelly during college. After a while, they replaced their singer and bassist with Bloom and Joe Bouchard. After spending a couple years as a bar band under the names Stalk-Forrest Group and Oaxaca, they changed their name to Blue Oyster Cult and recorded their self-titled debut album for Columbia Records in 1970
Nothing like The Byrds, apparentl. ords: Jaan Uhelszki We got tarred with the whole devilry thing, remembers Blue Öyster Cult’s singer Buck Dharma.
This 1976 hit’s meaning led to great discussions by fans. All our times have come Here, but now they're gone Seasons don't fear the reaper Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain. We can be like they are) Come on, baby (Don't fear the Reaper) Baby, take my hand (Don't fear the Reaper) We'll be able to fly (Don't fear the Reaper) Baby, I'm your man La, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la.
