Supernatural: The Musical

Okay, so I also love Glee, and one of my all-time favorite Buffy episodes is Once More with Feeling. I thought, hey, Supernatural, the musical. So I pared down the series to bare bones and tried to find songs for the turning points.

Disclaimer: Some of the songs I picked JUST for the title, not the lyrics.

Dean comes to get Sam to help him find his dad.

Jessica is killed when Sam returns, causing Sam to return to the hunting life.

Song: Highway to Hell

The boys hunt all manner of beasties.

Song: Life is a Highway

Sam begins to learn he has psychic powers, which he hides from Dean.

Song: Am I a Demon by Danzig

Dean finds out, and believes him.

Song: He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

They find out there are other kids like him, that lost their mother the same way.

Their quest takes them to their childhood home, restored and haunted by something evil—and their mother.

Song: Can’t Find My Way Home by Blind Faith

They are reunited with their dad.

Song: Reunited (I couldn’t resist)

Their dad is kidnapped and possessed and tries to kill them.

Instead of killing Daddy, Sam shoots him in the leg, releasing the demon.

Angry Daddy, beat-up Dean and Sam drive off, only to be t-boned by a truck.

Dean is dying.

Song: Knocking on Heaven’s Door

Daddy makes a deal to save him, and dies.

Song: Had a Dad by Jane’s Addiction

Dean is consumed with guilt, only to be made better when he goes back on the hunt.

They find more psychic children, and Sam goes off on his own, where he’s hunted down by Gordon.

Sam is kidnapped by the YED and forced to fight against the other psychic children for the dubious honor of leading Azazel’s army.

Sam dies.

Song: Nice to be Dead by Iggy Pop

Dean makes a deal to bring Sam back.

Song: I Can’t Live by Badfinger (I know….I tried to find something that WASN’T about love)

Dean kills the YED after the gates of hell have been opened.

Song: Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell by Flaming Lips

Sam and Dean are at odds with the rest of the hunting community because they allowed the gates of hell to be opened and a bunch of demons are running around.

Ruby, a witch-turned-demon, comes to help them, though they don’t trust her.

Song: Witchy Woman

Dean is dealing with the fact that he has one year to live and can’t do anything about it or Sam dies.

Song: Live Like You Were Dying by Tim McGraw

Sam has to watch Dean die over and over in a place called Mystery Spot, to show him how helpless he is.

The boys encounter an old nemesis, Agent Hendrickson, who arrests them.

Song: In the Jailhouse Now

Sam reveals that Ruby told him a demon named Lilith has been looking for him. Lilith comes to the jail after Dean and Sam leave and levels it, killing all inside.

Then Lilith comes for Dean and unleashes the hellhounds. Dean dies.

Song: Fade to Black by Metallica

Dean crawls his way out of the grave.

Song: Ain’t No Grave (Gonna Hold This Body Down) by Johnny Cash

He meets an angel named Castiel.

Song: Send Me an Angel by Real Life

The brothers are needed to help stop Lilith from breaking the 66 seals needed to set Lucifer free.

They later learn Dean broke the first seal by torturing souls in hell.

Song: Straight to Hell by The Clash

Sam has learned, while Dean is gone, that he can be more powerful with his psychic powers when he drinks demon blood. He’s become addicted.

Song: Dirty Little Secret by All American Rejects

The brothers fight violently when Sam tells Dean he’s the better hunter, that Dean is too weak, and Dean is pissed because Sam is still in touch with Ruby.

The brothers discover someone is writing their life story, and he’s a prophet named Chuck.

Song: The Prophets Song by Queen

Dean discovers Sam has a demon blood addiction.

Song: Lay It on the Line

Ruby tricks Sam into killing Lilith, which is the final seal, and Lucifer rises.

Song: Apocalypse Please by Muse

The boys are in the middle of a battle between Lucifer and the angels.

Song: Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears

Lucifer claims Sam is his vessel, and Sam refuses.

Song: Devil’s Plaything by Danzig

The archangel Michael wants Dean as his vessel, that it’s destiny, and Dean refuses.

They look for answers in God, only to learn that God doesn’t think it’s his problem.

Song: God and Satan by Biffy Clyro

Wow, Mary, what a lot of work! But it was awesome!

Some of these songs will be jockeying to be stuck in my head. LOL

Brilliant, MJ! I especially loved Everyone Wants to Rule the World. :)

This is awesome, Mary. Though I had to laugh a little -- we went from Tears for Fears and Muse to Danzig. Plus, it's kind of funny thinking of you listening to Danzig. That harder stuff is more like me. :)

Now I'm singing Send Me An Angel. Hey, I was 12 or 13 when that song was out.

LOL--I think the only songs I'd actually heard before I did this were Tears for Fears, Send Me an Angel, Clash and ACDC!
