The Top Ten

1 Daddy - Korn

I'm am a korn fan and god I can't take it black sabbath is a doom song but this is a messed up song it made shake for over 3 hours and goosebumps I can't believe I didn't have nightmare but trust me if you hear this song you'll freak out 9 min. Of darkness

Little child

2 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

This song is so terrifying. The basement tapes version by Black Sabbath is way creepier with its gritty tone, a third verse, and Ozzy's high-pitched screams. It's no wonder that when they performed this song in the early 1970s, people were so afraid they left the concert.

Definitely Black Sabbath.

A story of cannibalism.
3 men are trapped in a mine cave-in with no food.
The first two EAT their friend, and when they are rescued, don't tell anyone that he was in there with them.
Timothy, Timothy:
Where on Earth did you go?
