"All Day" and "(Every Day Is) Halloween" are the songs by an American rock band Ministry, both written and produced by Al Jourgensen. These were originally released by Wax Trax! Records in 1984 as Ministry's “comeback” single following their departure from Arista Records.[3]:95, with "All Day" on the A-side and "(Every Day Is) Halloween" on the B-side, respectively. In 1987, these were included on Ministry's compilation Twelve Inch Singles (1981–1984). The remixed version of "All Day" was featured on Ministry's 1986 album Twitch.[4]

Music writer Dave Thompson described "(Every Day Is) Halloween" as having been "adopted as the anthem of America's disenfranchised Gothic community."[5]
