  • Ripper Related Songs!!!

    So... I've been tracking down some Ripper Related songs. Here is a list of a few I've found thus far, in alphabetical order by artist. Hope you like them. A few recommendations: AFI, Morrissey, the Horrors, and Macabre. The song by Macabre is actually a reading of the Dear Boss letter to music... When I say reading I mean screaming! Still awesome though and worth a listen. To listen to the songs for free visit youtube, or projectplaylist. Hope you enjoy!

    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

            How many bands have been named Jack the Ripper? There was one in this region about 15 years ago and I bet it wasn't the only. It might even be extant, I don't know.
            This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

              Dear Ryan:

              The song by Morrissey is the theme song for Rippercast, in case you haven't heard the podcasts yet....

                Yeah, I love the song and was excited to hear it as the theme for Rippercast. It was actually the first time I heard the recorded version, because I have the live version of it from "My Early Burglary Years". The AFI version is pretty incredible, and if you get a chance highly recommend checking it out.
                Cheers,

                    Thanks for the lists...I've heard some of the songs but didn't realize that there were so many. I'm going to have to try and track down some of these and have a listen. Thanks again.

                      in 1988, American epic metal band MANILLA ROAD did a song called "Whitechapel".

                      Lyrics:

                      Tonight's the night
                      I long to strike
                      The time is right
                      Ripper

                      Outside the law
                      I taunt them on
                      My blade is drawn
                      Ripper

                      It's the blood before my eyes
                      Bringing newborn life
                      To this tortured mind

                      I thrive and feed on fear
                      Come closer now my dear
                      Your Uncle Jack is here

                      The hunt is on
                      I'll R.I.P. them all
                      Sweet carrion
                      Ripper

                      Whitechapel's lights
                      Gleam off my knife
                      It's time to die
                      Ripper

                      Nightmare of slaughter
                      Come to the daughters
                      Who sell their wares

                      Sadistic visions
                      Bloody incisions
                      On bodies bared

                      Inside the chapel
                      Unholy chapel
                      The blood will flow

                      Streets stained in crimson
                      With blood of women
                      Whose souls I stole

                      No place to hide
                      That I won't find
                      I rule the night
                      Ripper

                      I've no remorse
                      Ripping your corpse
                      You filthy whore
                      Ripper

                      Oh, can't you see that I'm obsessed
                      It's like I've been posessed
                      I'll lay your soul to rest this night
                      With my knife

                      I've turned these streets to hell
                      The Demon's come to dwell
                      Tolling Death's Bell in Whitechapel,
                      Whitechapel, playground of The Beast

                      My friends just call me Jack

                      Inside the London fog
                      I stalk and slash my prey
                      I come to disembowel
                      And send you to your grave

                      Sinful souls shall perish
                      In the dead of night
                      Ripping of the flesh
                      Left breast removed by knife

                      I have come
                      The Beast of lore
                      To kill again
                      Now as before

                      One hundred years
                      Have now gone by
                      And once again
                      It's ripping time

                      Your Uncle Jack is back
                      Tonight, I strike

                      My scalpel sharp
                      Cuts to the heart
                      I love to carve
                      Ripper

                      Fit for The Beast
                      A royal feast
                      Of women's screams
                      Ripper

                      It's the blood before my eyes
                      Bringing newborn life
                      To this tortured mind

                      I thrive and feed on fear
                      Come closer now my dear
                      Your Uncle Jack is here

                      Jack The Knife
                      In heaven I am a wild ox
                      On earth I am a lion
                      A jester from hell and shadows almighty
                      The scientist of darkness
                      Older than the constellations
                      The mysterious jinx and the error in heaven's masterplan

                        I think the first Ripper related song I have heard was Jack by Iced Earth. In that song, they seem to take the idea that Jack was the son of a prostitute - or that is how I interpret the line "conceived of a hundred men".
                        "Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions." - G.K. Chesterton

                          Haven't seen "The Ripper" by Lita Ford listed here yet. Though I generally like her music, I was actually kind of turned off by this song.

                            Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages did a video of their JTR in the 1960s.
                            South Molle Island had a video jukebox circa 1968-it was one of the three most played clips.
                            Several later groups covered the song.

                              "Welcome Back Victoria"(1991) by Jesus Jones has an overt reference to JtR also.
