"The Lords of Salem" is a song on Rob Zombie's third solo album, Educated Horses, from 2006. It can also be found on Zombie's greatest hits album The Best of Rob Zombie, Zombie's live album Zombie Live, and the soundtrack for The Covenant.

The song is based on the Salem witchcraft trials of the 17th century. An animated music video, much similar to that of "American Witch", was made in 2006.

Reception[edit]

Although no single was released and it did not chart, the song was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Hard Rock Performance for the 2009 Grammy awards.[1][2] The live version heard on Zombie Live was the nominated track. Rob Zombie has directed an unrelated movie titled The Lords of Salem.[3]
