I've seen a lot of debate in the "List of werewolf songs" topic. Most of the arguments are about whether or not the songs are actually about werewolves or not. Let alone if the song has anything to do with lycanthropy, or wolves, or changelings, etc. I like when songs are blunt about what they're singing about. But I also love when songs are vague about their lyrical meaning.
Blunt Example: Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
(C'mon. Even a non-werewolf lover can tell this song is about the howlers.)
In between blunt Example: Howlin' For You by The Black Keys
(The title sounds clear enough, but realistically he's singing about trying to snag a girl that makes him "howl" in more ways than one. It's vague, but it works for me.)
Not so blunt Example: Forty Six & 2 by Tool
(The first time I heard this song, I thought it was something about shadows. But the more I listened, I heard very werewolf-esque things like "my shadow's shedding skin", "I wanna know what I've been hiding in", "digging through my old muscles", "I wanna feel the metamorphosis", "change is coming" and so on. I LOVE the song if you can't tell already. Hints to werewolves or not.)
Well. Enough of my opinion. What about yours? Are there songs you enjoy that insinuate lycanthropy in any way shape or form? I'd love to hear some more.
Portugese metal band "Moonspell" has a couple: "Wolfshade (A Werewolf Masquerade)", "Sanguine" and "Luna" may count as such songs, and "Full Moon Madness".
I love Moonspell
Memorial is in my stereo right now lol

Shadow Reichenstein-Werewolf Order
Haha, I immediately started doing my little headshake headbang to the song. Short lived, seeing as how I have a headache today.

I know it technically isn't a werewolf song, though I love the band. I welcome any metal bands though I am not much of a screamo fan..
