    Probably the most prominent application of Halloween? The bold all-caps typeface featuring cookie-cutter counters with accentuating contour lines was used for the cover of Groovin’. The third album by rock band The Young Rascals was released in July 1967 and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Top LPs charts. For their next album, the band was renamed to The Rascals. The album cover was designed by Loring Eutemey, following an idea by the band’s drummer Dino Danelli, and featuring an illustration by Lynn Rubin.

    Two years earlier, Halloween had already be used on the cover of the debut album by The Lovin’ Spoonful.
