64Revelation No. 9 - Marilyn Manson
65Pretty - Korn

Read the story behind this song and you'll wonder why it isn't #2 next to Daddy.(I love Korn)

This song is very disturbing and sad, but I love korn and this song so...

66Mein 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.

67The Masque of Red Death - André Caplet
68Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada
69Maxwell's Silver Hammer- The Beatles

It sounds like the family friendly version of Cannibal Corpse's Hammer Smashed Face.

A song about a maniac with a silver hammer... why the judge? Why not any werewolves or anything? -

This song is more haunting than Revolution 9, that's why this song is so good. - malamJONES

Haha this song sounds so happily but it's about a maniac. - Metalmaniakkk
