Nightmare Revisited is a cover album of songs from the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was released on September 30, 2008 by Walt Disney Records to commemorate the film's 15th anniversary of its release. In addition to the album's eighteen covers are two re-recordings by original composer Danny Elfman, of the "Opening" and "Closing" tracks. One song featured on the album, Marilyn Manson's "This is Halloween", was previously released nearly two years earlier, on the reissue of The Nightmare Before Christmas: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack which, featuring five covers of songs from the film, acted as a precursor to Nightmare Revisited. The album also features the last song Korn recorded before entering their hiatus, their cover of "Kidnap the Sandy Claws". Enhanced content on the disc features the trailer of The Nightmare Before Christmas, as well.

American psychobilly band Tiger Army also provided a cover of "Oogie Boogie's Song", which was not featured on Nightmare Revisited, but did see release as a digital bonus track. Scott Murphy's cover of "Sally's Song" is also featured on Japanese pressings of the album.


On September 27, 2008, three days before the release of Nightmare Revisited, the album was made available for streaming exclusively by Spin.com.

On September 22, 2008, Evanescence vocalist Amy Lee, who contributed a cover of "Sally's Song" for the album, announced that she would be performing her cover on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on October 13, 2008. Marilyn Manson similarly performed his cover of "This Is Halloween" (from the reissue of The Nightmare Before Christmas: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) on The Tonight Show on Halloween two years earlier (October 31, 2006).
