Remember When MGK + Tommy Lee Did a Horror Podcast Together?
Halloween in Hell, the horror podcast miniseries starring Machine Gun Kelly and Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, among others, has been nominated for a Webby Award for best limited special in the podcasts category at the 26th annual voter-driven internet awards.
Do you remember the podcast? Did you listen to it? If so, Webby fan voting is open now until April 21.
Halloween in Hell, which aired in four parts (plus a bonus behind-the-scenes episode) last Halloween, followed the Kelly-assisted song "Climb," a single tied to the series. The cut also includes Lee and is led by their Halloween in Hell co-star, 24kGoldn.
The miniseries is set during Halloween, "where 24kGoldn and metal mistress Dana Dentata find themselves trapped on a soundstage reminiscent of hell," per a synopsis. The main cast play fictional versions of themselves; Lee plays the devil. (Read more of the plot in the excerpt located below.)
MGK, the rapper-turned-rocker and avid actor whose real name is Colson Baker, previously worked with Lee when he played the drummer in 2019's The Dirt.
Kelly's new album Mainstream Sellout arrived last month, backed by singles like "Papercuts," "Emo Girl" (with Willow), "Ay!" (with Lil Wayne) and "Maybe" (with Bring Me the Horizon). He'll tour North America this summer. Last month, MGK told pop-punk bands he earned his success in that genre.
In June, Motley Crue plan to mount their twice-postponed Stadium Tour. Last November, Crue singer Vince Neil returned to performing after falling and breaking his ribs onstage. Crue sold the rights to their song catalog for $150 million last year.
Below, hear the first episode of Halloween in Hell, followed by the lyric video for "Climb." Halloween in Hell was produced by Audio Up Media, the makers of Prom in Hell and Where the Bodies Are Buried.
