21 Iowa - Slipknot Iowa - 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

22 Burn the Pages of Quran - Janaza
23 Helter Skelter - The Beatles Helter 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. -

25 (515) - Slipknot (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!

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.

27 Haunted - Evanescence Haunted - 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...

28 Volcanic Birth - Dragged Into Sunlight Volcanic Birth - Dragged Into Sunlight

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

29 Danse Macabre - Celtic Frost Danse 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.

30 Slug Bait - Throbbing Gristle Slug 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.

31 Poltergeist - Zatox Poltergeist - Zatox
32 Frankie Teardrop - Suicide Frankie 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.

34 Castigation and Betrayal - Anaal Nathrakh Castigation 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.

35 Mein Teil - Rammstein Mein Teil - Rammstein

I dare you to translate it from german and not get disturbed or scared. As if the terrifying backward strings and heavy as a boulder guitar riffs aren't freaky enough.

This song talk about the history of a men that make a date just to eat the other men and he agrees, this really happened in Germany.

The song is about a German cannibal but somehow, manages to chart in the top 5 on German Music. Germany knows their music - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Really surprised to know this song was number 2 in the German music charts.

39 Tattered & Torn - Slipknot Tattered & 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!
