Band Photo: Rob Zombie (?)

Formed: 1985
From: New York, NY, United States
Last Known Status: Active


Since 1985 Zombie has been carving out a strange legacy of music in the world of rock, beginning in with the formation of his brainchild White Zombie. From the start, White Zombie was a bizarre hybrid of hardcore/punk aggression, Lower East Side art-damage and hard rock thunder. As if that weren’t enough, these fixations were filtered through Mr. Zombie’s love of classic horror/sci-fi films, trash hot rod culture and generally, all things on the dark side.

White Zombie was most noted for their release 'Astro Creep 2000'. The album reached #10 on billboard and stayed for two months. After this record, we started to see a little different style from Zombie. What might best be called Techno-Horror Rock. Since then Zombie has gone solo, simply renaming the band 'Rob Zombie'.

Rob Zombie is a man of many faces. He has done work on the Beavis and Butthead movie, directed all videos since going solo, wrote a script for 'The Crow 3' (which got scrapped), and is currently in the works of creating and directing his first feature film entitled 'House Of 1000 Corpses'. In short, Rob Zombie is an entertaiment genius.

Just For Fun

Rob Zombie To Remake Everything You Like

This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Shock rocker turned film maker Rob Zombie, who has directed such films as "House of 1000 Corpses," "The Devil's Rejects" and a reboot of the beloved Halloween franchise, has announced that he will once again be putting his "Broad Street Bullies" project on hold as following the release of his next movie, "31."

He will be tasked with once again breathing new life into seventies horror movies, including a third reboot of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and a second remake of "Last House on the Left." He also announced that he will be remaking other movies not in the horror genre and putting his own stamp on them, including "Shaft" starring Ken Foree and "Romper Stomper," the cult favourite Australian film about a gang of neo-Nazis, with Phil Anselmo rumoured to have a role.

"The Romper Stomper project is very dear to me," explained Zombie, "I've always thought it was great but it needed something more. I'd have believed it more if the movie took place in the seventies and the skinheads had Alice Cooper posters adorning their hideout.

"I've got a bunch of other movies in the pipeline too. Once I'm done with 'Romper Stomper' and 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre,' I'll be working on my interpretation of 'Network,' which I always felt should have had a revelation that the TV companies were run by snake headed aliens." I'm also giving serious thought to re-imagining 'The Godfather.' I think the title role is one that Sid Haig was born to play!"

With all these films set to be made, as well as plans for remakes of "Trainspotting," "Schindler's List" and a "Fritz the Cat" inspired re-telling of "Hong Kong Phooey" among others, all starring Sheri Moon Zombie, hockey fans will have to wonder if such a legendary story of the sport will finally be told by another director.

In addition to the upcoming album "31," Rob Zombie also has a new album on the horizon titled "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser." He issues this update to fans:

"Here you go Zombie Mothefuckers, some wicked shit is headed your way... right now.

"I'll tell you what... me and the guys in the band are pretty damn sure this is our best record yet... no joke. Yeah I know everyone says that. But I actually believe it.

Rob Zombie's "31" Finally Gets An "R" Rating

After three separate attempts, Rob Zombie's upcoming gory horror flick "31" has finally received an R rating from the MPAA.

The film had previously gotten the dreaded NC-17, even after being re-submitted in a less brutal cut, which meant most theaters would not show the movie.

Third time must have been the charm, because after culling more footage from the film, "31" is now officially rated R and getting prepped for a theater release. If the distorting of artistic vision just to satisfy some faceless assholes who don't even like horror movies gets your blood boiling, don't worry - the uncut version will be included on the DVD release.

Rob Zombie's New Movie Gets NC-17 Rating

Seems like we've been posting news about Rob Zombie's new killer clown movie "31" forever, but its finally wrapped up.

Unfortunately, it won't be coming to theaters anytime soon, at least not in its current version, as the film received an NC-17 rating. Zombie comments:

"Well, after two tries through the MPAA our rating on '31' remains NC-17. Maybe three is the charm to get an R rating. Why R you ask? Well, because your local theater will not show an NC-17. Even though you are a fucking adult... things much be censored for your enjoyment."

Personally I think he's missing the silver lining here. He could make a big campaign about how his movie is "too brutal for theaters" and get all his fans to download it VOD and probably make more money, but I doubt that will happen, as everybody is stuck in the past on theatrical releases still.
