NPL Mixtapes: 90s Teen Horror Rocks

February 21, 2019

An NPL curated 90s teen horror movie soundtrack inspired playlist. 

Our Lady Peace, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Graeme Revell were just some of the musicians receiving a lot of love from the horror genre in the 1990s. If you came of age during this time like me, you probably remember the sound that serves as inspiration for this mixtape. Featured below are songs from the soundtracks of some of the films I devoured as a teenager.
