Music video by Rob Zombie performing Dragula. (C) 1998 Geffen Records
"Dragula" is a song co-written and recorded by American musician Rob Zombie. It was released in August 1998 as the lead single from his solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe. Since its release it has become Zombie's most recognizable song as a solo artist. It is also his best-selling song, and had sold over 717,000 copies in the U.S. by 2010. The song is based on the drag racer "DRAG-U-LA" featured in the sitcom The Munsters.
The audio clip "superstition, fear and jealousy" at the beginning of the song is from the film Horror Hotel, and is spoken by Christopher Lee.
The music video features Rob Zombie riding in the Munster Koach (not the actual Dragula racing car) with various shots of the band members and different scenes from movies (one example - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is featured at the beginning of the video). It also prominently featured the killer robot from the old movie chapter serial The Phantom Creeps. It achieved heavy rotation on MTV following the huge success of the album. The video also appears in the film Idle Hands.
