The Walking Dead cast pick lead playlist songs for their characters

It’s time to drop the needle, as we asked the cast of The Walking Dead to share the songs that best symbolize their characters on the show.

Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon)

Hmmm… I think “Dirty Boots” by Sonic Youth. The way it starts and where it goes. I played it a lot!

Lauren Cohan (Maggie Rhee)

There’s one song from Hamilton called “That Would be Enough” that Phillipa Soo sings. And there’s this line were she goes, “And if this child shares a fraction of your smile or a fragment of your mind, look out world, that would be enough.” It always makes me think of Glenn, and it kills me to think of Glenn never getting to see his kid.

Josh Hamilton (Lance Hornsby)

When I first got the role, I was listening to lots of confidence-building hip hop with lots of braggadocio to give Lance confidence. There was this one song, “Point and Kill” by Little Simz. It had a propulsive groove that made you feel kind of sexy and dangerous. I always felt like Lance is someone who studied all those Tony Robbins self-help books and tapes to convince himself that he is the most effective, powerful person he could be. And so I had the idea that he also listens to music that makes him feel confident.

Laila Robins (Pamela Milton)

Pamela’s first playlist song would be “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. Enough said. 🙂

Michael James Shaw (Mercer)

The first song of that playlist would have to be “No Church in the Wild” from Watch the Throne. The lyrics and vibe of the song echo a lot of the questions and circumstances of the characters within The Walking Dead universe. Especially at the Commonwealth.

Josh McDermitt (Eugene Porter)

“Just A Friend” by Biz Markie. Do I really need to explain why?

Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier)

Maybe “Crazy” — the Patsy Cline version, written by Willie Nelson.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

I’m gonna say “Black Dog” by Led Zeppelin, because he’s a bit of a dog and he wears black. I just heard that song the other day and I’m like, “Goddamn, this should be in movies.” It’s such a good song.

Eleanor Matsuura (Yumiko Okumura)

Yumi’s playlist built over the years, so by season 11, it was long and awesome. Thom Yorke‘s “Dawn Chorus” for episode 1, season 11 was seminal to that moment when I realized my brother was alive. But the first track is “Point and Kill” by Little Sims, and the one that always felt tone-perfect for my journey on the show.

Lauren Ridloff (Connie)

My first day on set was also Andrew Lincoln’s last day. I wasn’t actually shooting that day —it was more of a tour, an introduction. When it was time for lunch break, we all went to the cafeteria and they had a magnificent huge cake made in the shape of Rick’s boots!  I think it was the first thing I took a photo of on set: Rick’s cake.
