The 5 O’clock Shadow: Tuesday 4/20/21

Today’s date is a hint.

Formed in Hawaii and now based in Oregon the original band are a reggae act who also perform a rendition of Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s “Monster Mash” called Monster Hash.

The Shadow artist did a punky, sped up version of this song on their 1992 debut album. They are often mistakenly credited with having written it.

The once legendary, alternative rock station KFOG in San Francisco used to play this song every Friday afternoon at 5 pm to kick off the weekend. It also appears in the comedy Homegrown.
