Darkest Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Used to Love Her - Guns N Roses

A song about, shockingly, murder.

"I used to love her
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Mm, yeah
But I had to kill her
I had to put her six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, Ooh, yeah
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Ooh, yeah
But I had to kill her
I knew I'd miss her
So I had to keep her
She's buried right in my backyard
Oh yeah, Ooh yeah, whoa, oh yeah" - Alpha101

22Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

It's about a child getting abused by his own mom. And how that child's inner demon is about ready to come out and start causing destruction.

23Let Go - Red
24Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
25Sleep Alone - Moby

A very haunting piece written about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. If you get into this song, it really makes you appreciate the tragedy of the event. The original lyrics to this were "at least we died together, holding hands, flying through the sky". - PositronWildhawk

26The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
27Thriller - Michael Jackson

I never got to finish looking at the video, because it was too disturbing.

I like the one with the zombies better.

28Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
29The Exorcist - Possessed

Amazing song from the godfathers of death metal.

30My Immortal - Evanescence

My Immortal is very sad and depressing song but this song is SCARY? NEVER! Amy Lee and Ben Moody's lyrics, piano and music is very great combination. This song is nothing compared to Korn's Daddy and Eminem's Kim.

31Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

Doom riffs and talks about satan burning in hell its pretty damn dark

32Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique

This gets my vote. I'm not a rap fan at all, and this song is beyond dark. It tells the story of a kid who wanted to join a gang. The initiation for him was to rape and kill a woman. So him and the gang members covered a woman's face, beat her, raped her, and right before the protagonist pulled the trigger, he lifted the shirt off her face. It was his mother, and he killed himself. Immortal Technique claims it's a true story, and says that he was a part of it in the song. This story sticks with you - ryanrimmel

33Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer - Elmo & Patsy

Alright. Whoever put this on here is a dope.

34Let's Get This Party Started - Korn
35Run for Your Life - The Beatles

If this song was done today, it would be banned.

36Riders On the Storm - The Doors
37New York Mining Disaster - The Bee Gees

"Have you seen my wife Mr. Jones?
Do you know what its like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide"

38Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles
39Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones

I've heard this song, and I didn't necessarily find it dark or disturbing... - Alpha101

40In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans

A very dim view of the future of mankind
