Shadowhunters | A Playlist

Very Important Fact About Me: I am obsessed with all things Shadowhunters. My love began with The Mortal Instruments and I continued to read all of Cassandra Clare’s series religiously.  Jace Herondale for life. 

I really wanted to create one for each character, relationship, event that has ever happened in this world but there’s just so much material I settled for one main playlist that touched on all important shadowhunter stories we know and adore.

The Breakdown

Here’s a few of my favorite choices and why they remind me of our favorite Shadowhunters!

Carry On My Wayward Son, Kansas

This song is too epic not to feature on a playlist about demon-slaying, half-angel hotties. It’s about a guy with a purpose who won’t rest until he’s fulfilled it, aka every shadowhunter in existence.


Notable Lyrics: “Carry on my wayward son. For there’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest. Don’t you cry no more.”

This Is Gospel, Panic! At The Disco

Any chance I get to reference gospel, angels, or demons on a playlist about Shadowhunters is a good day. Shadowhunter code is all based on a history handed down by people thousands of years ago, and it maaaaay or may not always be right. *Cue fight scene in the name of love that the clave knows nothing about*


Notable Lyrics: “This is gospel for the fallen ones. Locked away in permanent slumber
Assembling their philosophies from pieces of broken memories.”

Back in Black, AC/DC

This reminds me of one of my favorite Jace quotes: “Shadowhunters: Looking Better in Black Than the Widows of our Enemies Since 1234.” (Jamie Campbell Bower will always be Jace – fight me.)


Notable Lyrics: “Number one with a bullet, I’m a power pack
Yes, I’m in a bang with a gang.”
