Scariest Songs Ever Written

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Iowa - Slipknot

This song so so scary. Sounds of screams at the beginning and a creepy bass and bass drum rift. Corey's screams, scary vocals, and bada** guitar rifts. Around the end basically Corey goes mental and then calms down but is still crazy. Also while recording this song, Corey was cutting himself up everywhere. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I actually remember as a 10 year old kid, this song actually made me hide under my blankets at night. (I didn't know who they were back at that time) When I looked up the song's backstory when was 17, I started to get goosebumps. - Mumbizz01

Corey got naked and cut himself with glass while throwing up while recording this.

I can't even describe it

22Poltergeist - Zatox
23Burn the Pages of Quran - Janaza
24Helter Skelter - The Beatles

Listen to this song and try not to see a crazed Charles Manson in the corner of your room. Come to think of it... a lot of songs on "The White Album" would have you invision such things. -

26(515) - Slipknot

This song is basically about the psychotic rage that is hidden within all of our minds, and after being pushed to a certain limit... we will eventually snap and let it all loose. Now that's super scary!

This is actually the reversed audio of one of the band members, Sid, screaming into a microphone the day after his grandfather died.

This is second album Iowa's intro and so damn HORRIBLE!

27Yung Rapunxel - Azealia Banks

The song as a whole is great, especially Azealia's rapping, but the part of the song where she screams the lyrics is slightly disturbing... not to mention the video in which she has mouths instead of eyes.

28Haunted - Evanescence

This song just gives me shivers, especially the very beginning with the sound that's like a distorted organ and that haunting voice of Amy Lee. This should be higher. - jmoulds98

I love this song! Not to creepy though...

29Danse Macabre - Celtic Frost

This song is scary. 1st it starts with the creepiest use of the triangle ever! Then it has Tom (I think) chanting "Lah" like he's having an organs or something then it sounds like he's struggling or being possessed then you hear heavy breathing with the sound of a bada** guitar in the background with a random hit from the scariest gong ever. Then there's the gibberish, high pitched voices, messed up violin (or fiddle) and the voices at the end. This song should be in the top 3. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

OH MY GOD! This song is a total collection of nightmarish sounds and collaberation of what Hell would sound like. - fireinside96

This has to be the scariest song ever.

30Volcanic Birth - Dragged Into Sunlight

Good God, this bad makes Mayhem look like Linkin Park on terms of heaviness and creepiness - SirSkeletorThe3rd

31Slug Bait - Throbbing Gristle

Disturbed? Shut up. Just listen to this. This song features a monotone voice describing a pedophile murdering a child.

Creepiest stuff I've ever heard.

32Frankie Teardrop - Suicide

This song deserves to be in the top 10. The simple drum track, his screams, and the songs subject matter make it so much deserving for a higher place on the list.

Any one who listens to this will instantly but it at number 1, trust me this is disturbing, turn of the lights and you will get freaked out.

HOLY CRAP! Even just listening to the very beginning gets me so freaked out! The long pauses with only the beat are just messed up.

I actually find this more unnerving than the actual #1.

33Castigation and Betrayal - Anaal Nathrakh

Hearing Dave emit agonizing screams to an industrial sounding metal track is terrifying enough, but those zombie groans he makes halfway through are enough to give you nightmares.

34Litanies of Satan - Diamanda Galas
35I've Plummed This Whole Neighborhood - Nurse With WoundV2 Comments
36Tattered & Torn - Slipknot

This song reminds me of creepy clowns. The intro just reminds me of clowns so much. I always think of clowns when I hear this song. It's pretty creepy. The rift, the lyrics, the screams. All very creepy indeed but not a creepy as Iowa - SirSkeletorThe3rd

According to the band, whoever understands this song's meaning understands "the Clown". Acording to Shawn "Clown" Crahan himself the clown represents a lot of thing, among them is his death. God Damn!

38Cupcakes - Futret
39Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

Not scary but terrible. Back in the real days of music we had songs like " purple haze, crazy train, paradise city, you can't touch this, all my life, closer, beautiful people, rock and roll all nite, poison, kickstart my heart, it's my life and who could forget stairway to heaven". Now we have music like "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hon? , you're a stupid hoe, if I was your boyfriend, you know what to do with that big fat butt? Wiggle, wiggle wiggle" WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MUSIC?

YES! THIS SONG IS SCARY! IT'S EXTREMELY SCARY! SERIOUSLY! I had to go through 8 days of insomnia because of this song!

This is not a song at all. It's not. It's just noise! Noise! Noise!

Not scary, just stupid
