Sing along with the slaughter in Typing of the Dead: Overkill DLC

There are only two things that zombies love: delicious, moist brains, and the lure of pop music. If Thriller wasn't proof enough, Sega's most recent DLC addition for blood-soaked keyboard primer Typing of the Dead: Overkill certainly cements the idea.

The "Dancing With The Dead" lexicon transforms the phrases that players are tasked with typing into popular song lyrics. Sega is being coy on which songs it has lifted words from, but the publisher's announcement this morning includes references to groups like House of Pain, Will Smith, The Clash and probably a few others that we're not picking up on.

As with earlier DLC releases for Typing of the Dead: Overkill, the Dancing With The Dead lexicon bears a $3 price tag. It's currently available on Steam to satisfy all of your oddly mundane fantasies of battling walking corpses armed only with keen office skills.

Dancing With the Dead

Dancing with the Dead Lexicon Pack launches today, March 20, for Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL

Yo, back up now and give a Mutant room,
Dancing with the Dead has just gone boom,
It's the Lexicon Pack with the musical theme,
With flesh eating creatures that'll make you scream.

It's for Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL,
Replaces words and phrases with lyrics, so ill,
Because where words fail and music speaks,
We be totin' a machine gun to ice these freaks.

So pack it up pack it in, let me begin,
At just $2.99 you may think we trippin',
But from 10:00 AM PST the DLC goes live,
And it's here we belong, fighting to survive.

This is London calling to the faraway towns,
Don't hesitate; don't let them strike you down,
But we been rhymin' and rappin' too long,
So for more information check SEGA.com.

Word.
