Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Sterile Nails and Thunderbowels - Silencer

Man, isn't his voice just terrifying.

82Hammer Horror - Kate Bush
83The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

I think getting into his mind during the making of this album would be a bit frightening. Don't look so much at the lyrics themselves but where it is coming from. That makes this top of the list for me. I have most of Trent's work on cd but this one is a bit different - Johnnyt800

So much blood for such a tiny little hole.

The freaky sound effects, the weird musical notes and scales, the lyrics, the screaming, the somewhat lo-fi and unusual sound quality, the overall backstory.

84Prison Sex - ToolV1 Comment
85Tubular 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. The video with Clint Eastwood is much scarier - JaysTop10List

Pretty scary laugh near the end...

87Blue Jay Way - The Beatles

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

88Suzanne - Plan B

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

89A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh - Celtic Frost
90Rugrats 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

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

92Endless, Nameless - Nirvana
93In a Lonely Place - Joy Division
94Gloomy 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!

95It's Gonna Go Away - Korn

Next to Daddy, creepiest Korn song I have ever heard.

96Out of Phase - Bowery Electric
97Song of Joy - Nick Cave
