The song was written by lead singer Michale Graves sometime in 1991. The promotional singles released mainly to radio stations and vinyl copies also contained the song "Hate the Living, Love the Dead". The record versions are on blue vinyl.
The video for the single is made up of mostly live clips, scenes of Graves singing in a graveyard, and clips from Bride of Frankenstein. Fifty videotapes were made for friends of the band including this video and the video for "Abominable Dr. Phibes"/"American Psycho". It is also one of the few Misfits songs with a video. (Others include the two previously mentioned and "Scream!"). A low-quality video was also recorded while Danzig was still in the band for "Braineaters", but was only given to friends and leaked through the internet. There is also an internet-only video for Monster Mash.
The cover of the single features the Bride of Frankenstein.
At least one copy is on black vinyl with a black and white sleeve with identical matrix etchings exists. It is owned by Fabian Karnoll of Leonberg, Germany, and assumed to be a test printing, but according to the Misfits, all copies are on blue vinyl with a blue sleeve, and claim this version is a bootleg.
