Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Hammer Horror - Kate Bush Hammer Horror - Kate Bush
82 Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield

Whenever I listen to this song I feel like I've entered another world. It sounds so mysterious that it feels like it wasn't made by humans. A song that doesn't really sound all that human.

Funny thing is that this song wasn't really written for The Exorcist. Wonder what it would've been like it director William Friedkin just skipped this song for The Exorcist.

It sounds so mysterious and otherworldly that it's creepy. It's still a true masterpiece of art though. I really love it.

Exorcist, this song is TERRIFYING and you have scarred us all for life. You don't get suspense, oh no. You KNOW it's coming. You shall not sleep tonight. Farewell.

Not THAT scary, but backwards it's pretty disturbing. But the music video can give nightmares MAYBE(Due to "Magical Mystery Boy")

85 Empty Walls - Serj Tankian Empty Walls - Serj Tankian

This little diddy is a song about war. 'Nuff said (again). -

Oh... This song and its video really gave me chills when I saw it first time...

86 Suzanne - Plan B

Song about a prostitute called Suzanne who is killed with a chainsaw by the "Camden Ripper". Just listen to it... - laurennybums

87 Rugrats Theory - Yuki Kaai

Even if this is sung by an artificial voice it still has meaning. Based on the creepypasta story, The Rugrats Theory is about Angelica going insane with having all the children (except baby dill) being figments of her imagination. Though the creepypasta ends differently, in the song Angelica finds out that the children are just imaginary and kills herself.

What the heck?! This song is so beautiful! Not even close to scary! My number 1 favorite Vocaloid song - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

It may be a vocaloid song but it is creepy either way. Tis song HAS to be in the top 10 it HAS to!

Yeah... This song is a childhood crusher. Literally - Nintendogirl

88 Endless, Nameless - Nirvana Endless, Nameless - Nirvana
89 In a Lonely Place - Joy Division
90 Gloomy Sunday - Rezs┼Ĺ Seress

Many suicides were linked to this song, including the composer himself, along with his wife.

How is this song not higher on the list? The song made people commit suicide!

91 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

It relates closely to the Columbine High School massacre and the chorus is a reference to the many children running in fear from the gunman.

Actually a song about a boy with murderous fantasies, but made into an almost happy sounding song due to the writer's background in jingle writing.

It is a song about a school shooting.
