Dead Man's Party is the fourth album by Oingo Boingo, released in 1985. It is considered by some to be their breakthrough, due to the inclusion of songs from this album in two films. The title track was used in the film Back to School (wherein Boingo performs the song at a party) and the dancing skeletons in its music video became one of the most recognized symbols of the band. It was also used in the Chuck television series in "Chuck Versus the Couch Lock". The album also includes the song "Weird Science" which was written for the John Hughes film of the same name and later the television series on the USA network. Another track, "No One Lives Forever", was used in the 1986 Cannon Group production of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and Casper: A Spirited Beginning, a direct-to-video release from 20th Century Fox and Saban Entertainment in 1997. It is also used as the theme for the October 29, 2010 episode of Rachael Ray.
The album cover art is a homage to the Day of the Dead.
All songs written and composed by Danny Elfman.
