Darkest Songs of All Time

Alpha101
Some of the darkest, creepiest, and most depressing songs that you will ever find.

The Top TenXW

1Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

The entire song is about the father of Satanism, Alester Crowley. 'enough said.

"Mr. Crowley, what went on in your head?
Oh, Mr. Crowley, did you talk to the dead?
Your life style to me seemed so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
Yeah, you waited on Satan's door." - Alpha101

2The Abandoning - Love and Death

Some people have a different interpretation for this song, but basically, in my opinion, the person singing this song is in Hell, and he's begging for God to take him to Heaven. But God tells him that it is too late, and that he's already made his choice. Creepy...

"Master master save me, master master kill me
Don't give up on me now, cause that's what I've already done
My body's breaking down
I feel my mind getting numb
Bleeding from my disconnection, lost inside myself
Forsaken by my own reflection, abandoning myself." - Alpha101

3Breathe Into Me - Red

Same thing as "The Abandoning."

"Breathe your life into me
I can feel you
I'm falling, falling faster
Breathe your life into me
I still need you
I'm falling, falling
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me
Breathe into me." - Alpha101

4Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne

A whole song dedicated to suicide. And to make it even more creepy, someone did commit suicide after listening to this song!

"Breaking laws, knocking doors
But there's no one at home
Made your bed, rest your head
But you lie there and moan
Where to hide, suicide is the only way out
Don't you know what it's really about." - Alpha101

This song is about the dangers of drinking.

5Black Hell - Danzig

Glenn Danzig sounds like a darker and heavier version of Jim Morrison. Plus dark music (close to doom metal) and dark lyrics with occult elements.
"It's gon' rain down like black hell
You don't know what it's like to be dead
I'mma teach you now, teach you well
You gon' learn how to live in black hell

If there's a demon in your brain
I think it's time to let it out again
And this world you know goes insane
Never ever gon' be the same again". - Metal_Treasure

6Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest
7Iron Man - Black Sabbath

At first I thought he was just a brat but now I get it maybe they mean another iron man - simpsondude

8Kim - Eminem

This whole song is about Eminem screaming at his wife Kim, threatening her, and then killing her at the end.

At first it starts off calm but then...

A whole song about domestic violence and murder.

9How the Gods Kill - Danzig

Just watch the video...
Lyrics and images with occult elements, very dark music and his hypnotizing voice work together to create extremely dark songs.

"if you want the power
Then let it flow through

Would you let it go
Would you let it go
They cannot end this mourning
Of my life
Show me
How the gods kill". - Metal_Treasure

10Daddy - Korn

Such a deep, dark song, it's scary as hell, but very sad at the same time. - UltimateHybridX

Korn deserves better than this. They shouldn't have to deal with Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus today. They don't deserve that!

Based on the true story of Jonathan Davis's personal experience of being molested as a child. How dark can you get? That's just horrible. It really is!

Should be 1 can't listen to it without shaking it's a messed up song

The Newcomers

?Shoots and Ladders - Korn

A whole song about the nursery rhymes we used to sing as kids, but we didn't know that they had dark meanings.

I never thought Ring Around the Rosie was really about the Black Plague. That's a real childhood crusher.

This song is a real childhood destroyer.
"Ring around the rosies. A pocket full of posies. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down.

Nursery rhymes are said, Verses in my head.
Into my childhood they're spoonfed.
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real.
Look at the pages that cause all this evil! "

?Screams of the Undead - Demon Hunter

The Contenders

11The End - The DoorsV1 Comment
12Hurt - Johnny Cash

In case you don't know, this is a cover version. The original is from Nine Inch Nails. - Metal_Treasure

A sad, and depressing song.

"I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything." - Alpha101

13One - Metallica
14Stan - Eminem

A song about an overly addicting fan who at first just writes a letter to Eminem, but then the fact that Eminem hasn't reached him back causes him to drown himself and his pregnant wife.

15Alison Hell - Annihilator

Parents ignored the psychological problems of their daughter and her disease progressed to the point of no return. - Metal_Treasure

16Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

This song isn't necessarily dark, but it is sad. Though inspiring, it tells a sad tale about someone committing suicide, and how it is Never Too Late. I know you're supposed to listen to it and feel better about yourself, but it always makes me feel depressed. Funny isn't it?

"Even if I say
It'll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late." - Alpha101

17Love's Tragedy Asunder - Demons and Wizards

It's about a man whose wife is terminally ill, and he assists her suicide, and ends up killing himself.
A great power ballad with amazing vocals. - Metal_Treasure

18Raining Blood - Slayer
19Infected - Demon Hunter
20Timothy - The Buoys

Two men trapped in a coal mine cave-in kill and eat their companion to survive.
"Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking' at you,
Timothy, Timothy,
God what did we do? "
