More Musical Costume Speculation

Last week, Rolling Stone asked readers to vote for the album they would like Phish to cover on Halloween. These are the results:

1. Radiohead – OK Computer
2. My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
3. David Bowie – The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
4. Radiohead – In Rainbows
5. Guns n’ Roses – Use Your Illusion I
6. Guns n’ Roses – Use Your Illusion II
7. Aerosmith – Toys in the Attic
8. The Allman Brothers Band – At Fillmore East
9. Boston – Boston
10. Frank Zappa – Joe’s Garage: Acts I,II & III
11. Tool – Aenima
12. Michael Jackson – Thriller
13. The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced?
14. The Who – Who’s Next
15. Yes – Fragil

The consensus seems to be Radiohead's "OK Computer". Not my first pick, but nonetheless, Phish would do an excellent job covering it. As Rolling Stone points out, Fetival 8 with coincide with the 25th anniversary of the release of Prince's "Purple Rain", from which Phish has covered the title track in the past. Great prediction. But, the fact that Rolling Stone is predicting it should be reason enough for Phish not to do it. Regardless, speculation is heavily underway and I can honestly say I haven't been this excited for Halloween since I was...five. Click HERE, to read the Rolling Stone article. Below is a video from Phish's '96 Halloween show (musical costume, Talking Heads "Remain in Light") at the Omni in Atlanta, GA.


  1. I was checking the different covers, well it's a hard decision, all of then are cool for a day like Halloween, but in my opinion definitely Tool – Aenima.

  2. you can call me a outdated, but the law is the law, Thriller by Michael Jackson was, is and will be the anthem of this date, when you go to a place in this date you hear this song, beside the video clip still scare me, I hate zombies!!!

  3. Awesome site! You’ve some quite interesting posts.. Nice background too haha. Keep up the nice work, Ill make sure to come across and find out really your page!

  4. Many thanks for making the effort to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and like studying a great deal more on this topic. If possible, as you gain knowledge, would you mind updating your webpage with a great deal more information? It's very helpful for me.
