"Psycho Holiday" is a song by American heavy metal band Pantera from their fifth album Cowboys from Hell.


There was a video made for the song,[1] which is very similar to their video for "Cowboys from Hell" - in that it simply shows the band playing the song live to an audience. The video, much like the video for "Cowboys from Hell", was shot in a Dallas club called "the Basement" and directed by Paul Rachman.

Release and reception[edit]

Psycho Holiday was the third and final single released for the Cowboys from Hell album. The song failed to chart, however it is one of Pantera's most well known songs.
