Creepiest song I have ever heard in my entire life.

144 Counting Bodies like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums - A Perfect Circle Counting Bodies like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums - A Perfect Circle

The almost constant drumming really does remind you of war drums, while the distant screaming cements the impression that this song could have been recorded in the middle of a devastating battle, with no hope of victory for either side. The muffled sounds of what could be a family argument, repeated screams of pain, moaning (? ), what could be the buzzing of flies, the disturbing lyrics (which are adapted from their other equally creepy but not quite as scary song, 'Pet') and the singer's demands for you TO "GO TO SLEEP" make this song sound like the soundtrack to death and decay itself.

145 Freezing Moon - Mayhem Freezing Moon - Mayhem

How is this not higher? This song was written to make people wanna kill themselves. It's an amazing song though. - Oliwally

146 Death, Pierce Me - Silencer Death, Pierce Me - Silencer

151 Ancient Queen - Emperor Ancient Queen - Emperor

The lyrics not scary but the quality production makes this song sound spoopy - countnightdark13

152 Lavender Town - Pokémon Lavender Town - Pokémon
153 Man-Size Sextet - PJ Harvey
154 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

His voice just sends chills down your spine, totally creepy. The lyrics too

156 Night Prowler - AC/DC Night Prowler - AC/DC

Never realized how scary this song actually is. Angus's bluesy guitar is what really sends the shivers up my spine. This is also, in my opinion, Bon Scott's most unnerving performance as well. You feel like he actually means what he's saying in this song, unlike other crime related AC/DC songs like "Jailbreak" or "Problem Child". This is just a terrifying, as well as awesome, song.

158 These are Our Children - I Monster These are Our Children - I Monster

Little kids just creep me out plain and simple. Plus the mood created by the music doesn't help at all. Oh and I forgot the eerie chorus. - fireinside96

159 Old House On the Hill - Carpathian Forest Old House On the Hill - Carpathian Forest

This song is effed up beyond belief. The lyrics are creepy let alone the voice of the frontman. - fireinside96

160 Crank Dat Holy Ghost - Young Jules

This song and Soulja Boy's Crank that sound similar to the point where it's scary. O__O
