Help identfy a song. "Sequel" to Monster Mash

I first heard this on Sirius XM around Halloween time a few years ago. Best way I can describe it is it was like a rockabilly sounding song. I'm guessing 70s? Had new lyrics and everything. Was not Bobby Pickett. Chorus was like a rough/gravely voiced singer.

It's been impossible trying to google it since the orignal Monster Mash is so popular that I end up short. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know you said it's not Pickett but he does have a song call Monster Mash Party. Dracís Back by Billy DeMarco also have the same song.

I checked out both of these on youtube. Sadly, it isn't one of them.

There have been so many versions of Monster Mash that you have a serious challenge on your hands!

Probably not what you want but here is like-minded song but Doo-Wop.

Good luck!

There are a few hundred rock n roll/rockabilly monster songs recorded from 1957-mid 60s. Could be any one of them.

I anxiously await this thread being bumped in 2037, with the correct answer.

It wouldn't have been a punk band like the Misfits or Cramps, would it?

It's possible it could be a cover or a lesser-known gem from that era. Have you heard at least some words?
