Free-falling rock balladeer Tom Petty compares aimless, thrill-seeking freaks to the undead in this track from his 1989 album Full Moon Fever. Not only does he take white lipstick wearers, lunch pail purse owners, and dropouts to task for being easily led and having no goals or ambitions beyond their desires to dance at the Zombie Zoo, he also goes so far as to burn one with the line "you look like Boris Karloff and you don't even care."
Apparently Petty doesn't even care that Frankenstein's monster, whom Karloff played in the classic '30s flicks, isn't actually considered a zombie.
