Spook Rock: Don't Drink the Water (1998)

Many a horror story has been set in the dark, dank swamps. So it makes some sense to classify the Dave Matthews Band's 1998 hit, "Don't Drink the Water", in our "Spook Rock" category, especially with the CGI effect of Matthews still being able to sing despite his head being severed (a device that has previously been used to some effect by the likes of Thomas Dolby, among others), and with the video being set in a swampland somewhere. What surprises me is how this hasn't been used in too many horror movie soundtracks! Uploaded via Matthews' VEVO channel:
