I am very excited to announce the winner of the ‘Zombie Apocalypse Question Contest’. There were a lot of great entries, which made it a tough decision. I wanted to thank you all again for participating.
Melee Weapon: Baseball Bat
Reason: Nothing better than blunt force trauma time to roll up the sleeves and get amongst it.. The sound of cracking skulls and the sight of blood spraying don’t get much better
Ranged Weapon: Mossberg 590A1 Special Shotgun
Reason: Once again you got to get close and personal with this bad boy, ranged weapons or for wimps. Pull the trigger and enjoy watching those Zombie son of a bitches heads exploding like a ripe pumpkin.
Zombie Killing Song: More Human than Human – White Zombie
Reason: What’s better then getting covered in Zombie gore than listening to this band. All while wearing my Dre Monster Beats headphones…red ones of course. Yeah that’s right I am BAD!!!!

Melee weapon would be my replica klingon bat’leth all the time I’d be listening to Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades” on continuous loop…if I got tire by wielding that heavy blade Lemmy and the boys could keep me pumped.

I would use a katana for my close contact work since it has an awesome reputation for “getting the job done.” For a long distance kill, I’d go for a rifle. But if I could scavenge a sniper’s gun, that would be even better. While surviving and kicking ass at the same time, I’d listen to “Heads Will Roll” by Yeah Yeah Yeah’s
I think that given the circumstances, I’d actually go with a compound bow for my long distance weapon because 1) it would be relatively easy to find, 2) you can reuse your ammo. Arrows can be picked back up but when you run out of bullets you’re screwed, and 3) it allows for some stealth. No worrying about attracting other zombies.
For my melee weapon I’d go for a woodcutter’s axe. Once again, it’s easy to find and takes very little skill to use – just start to swing and the sucker does the job for you.
All the while I’d be blasting ZZ Top’s La Grange… “Have mercy. A pow pow pow pow, a pow.”
Melee Weapon: Machete
Reason: Utility – useful for chopping wood and materials for survival. Tactical – useful for choppin’ the zombie F’ers cranial regions like tomato’s.
Ranged Weapon: Sniper scoped .308
Reason: Utility – hunting of deer and other small to large game for sustenance. Tactical – hunting/long range engagement of zombie’s and scouting of immediate area.
Zombie Killin’ Song: Black Betty by Ram Jam
Reason: Great beat for gaining a rhythm for shooting. Only to be played when working with the long ranged weapons.

I live in small town Idaho, where better to be when zombies start roaming about? So realistically if I was elsewhere and returning home to save someone I love, my melee weapon would have to be the big tire iron already in my truck, my hunting rifle that lives in the back window of said truck, and since I’m a rock & roll kind of country girl my fight song would be “Pain” by Three days Grace.

I’d prefer a smaller metal ball and chain with spikes, not too heavy so it can be swung without getting too close; a repeating rifle ( though a semi-auto may be better for this), and I’d have to have a good beat to z-slay to like MJ’s Thriller or how about Donna Summer to get the blood pumping?
