Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Fritter (Stella's Home) - Skinny Puppy
42Pieces of Quiet - Khanate
43Sober - Tool

Let me explain. Out of all of Tool's songs this one on this list? What about songs like Vicarious? This song is about a lame, quiet man (a friend of the band) who is only exciting and can only strike up a a good conversation while he is either drunk or high. 'Jesus won't you try and whistle' meaning "God this guy is boring"

46My Name Is - EminemV2 Comments
47Every Breath You Take - The Police

A song that's not about love. But about a stalker. I mean... Every Breath you take. Every move you make. Every bond you break. Every smile you fake, I'll be watching you.

And how did I get here from searching John Deacon, anyway? :-S

48Dead Skin Mask - Slayer

This song is based on the real life story of body snatcher Ed Gein. Gein would always go to graveyards and dig up the dead bodies of people so that he can use their skin and bones as decorations for his house.

Gein was also the inspiration for the norman bates, buffalo bill, and leatherface.

I love this song, but I definitely will admit that those moans of suffering at the end were pretty damn freaky!

Dance with the dead in my dreams! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

49Empty Sounds of Hate - Marilyn Manson

Better known as Track 99.

50Pain - Hollywood UndeadV1 Comment
51On the Run - Pink Floyd

The song is about a guy (David Gilmoure) missing his plane ride and the laugh is someone laughing is because he missed the plane and in the end the plane explodes.

God this song scares me. The scream gets me every time. Its acualy a lesson about how you shouldn't rush life. Great song. I had a hard time choosing between this and revolution 9. And no quarter is not that scary. Its kind of cool in my opinion.

That effin scream, high pitched wail, and laugh just freaks me out! -

52What's the New Mary Jane - The Beatles
53Several Odd Moments Prior to Lunch - Nurse with Wound

NuRse wItH WoUnd is one of the creepiest things I've heard of in my entire life! Avant-Garde noise is definitely not for everyone!

54Necrophobic - Slayer
55Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

The beginning is creepy with that piano, but the rest of the song is just your average Avenged Sevenfold rock song - Tylerlangford1234

Not creepy the beginning a bit but then it's just an awesome rock song

I would love to have this song playing in my nightmare! - Metalmaniakkk

Seriously? This song isn't scary at all! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

56Eyeless - Slipknot

This song is so insane! It may not be really sad, like KoRn's "Daddy", but it's just a compilation of Corey Taylor's thoughts and screaming, really, really loud. When I listen to it, I imagine it's the inside of his mind, basically.

57House of 1000 Corpses - Rob Zombie

This song wasn't scary but weird I never thought there was a scary son until ths top 3 songs by korn and the Beatles and Eminem but man

58Bacterial Contamination - Hatsune Miku

The beginning may be a bit scary, but if you've watched for 2 times or more, it's not scary anymore. Plus, the vocals and lyrics are beautiful - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Not necessarily scary but it's somewhat creepy.

The video, it's so scary. I haven't heard the song yet, just because of the video. Terrifiedly creepy. Don't watch with your lights off at night.

59Dies Irae - Devil Doll

Not too creepy, just pretty cool. You might think you have never heard this, but trust me... you have.

60In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans

You must hear this creepy song. It is all about armageddon to judgement day and how the human can survive if the year 2525 is just near...
