Darkest Songs of All Time

21 Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
22 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

This song isn't necessarily dark, but it is sad. Though inspiring, it tells a sad tale about someone committing suicide, and how it is Never Too Late. I know you're supposed to listen to it and feel better about yourself, but it always makes me feel depressed. Funny isn't it?

"Even if I say
It'll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it all around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late." - Alpha101

23 River of Deceit - Mad Season
24 Love's Tragedy Asunder - Demons and Wizards

It's about a man whose wife is terminally ill, and he assists her suicide, and ends up killing himself.
A great power ballad with amazing vocals. - Metal_Treasure

25 Timothy - The Buoys

Two men trapped in a coal mine cave-in kill and eat their companion to survive.
"Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking' at you,
Timothy, Timothy,
God what did we do? "

26 Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique

This gets my vote. I'm not a rap fan at all, and this song is beyond dark. It tells the story of a kid who wanted to join a gang. The initiation for him was to rape and kill a woman. So him and the gang members covered a woman's face, beat her, raped her, and right before the protagonist pulled the trigger, he lifted the shirt off her face. It was his mother, and he killed himself. Immortal Technique claims it's a true story, and says that he was a part of it in the song. This story sticks with you - ryanrimmel

27 Raining Blood - Slayer
28 Infected - Demon Hunter
29 Rape Me - Nirvana
30 Coma White - Marilyn Manson

A pill to make you numb
a pill to make you dumb
a pill to make you anybody else
but all the drugs in this world, won't save her from herself. - say10

31 Screams of the Undead - Demon Hunter
32 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer - Elmo & Patsy

Dark song about an elderly lady being mauled by a mysterious fat man's flying contraption, which crushes her cranium and kills her instantly with no remorse, and he leaves the body there

Alright. Whoever put this on here is a dope.

33 Used to Love Her - Guns N Roses

A song about, shockingly, murder.

"I used to love her
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Mm, yeah
But I had to kill her
I had to put her six feet under
And I can still hear her complain

I used to love her, Ooh, yeah
But I had to kill her
I used to love her, Ooh, yeah
But I had to kill her
I knew I'd miss her
So I had to keep her
She's buried right in my backyard
Oh yeah, Ooh yeah, whoa, oh yeah" - Alpha101

34 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

It's about a child getting abused by his own mom. And how that child's inner demon is about ready to come out and start causing destruction.

Child abuse leads to psychotic killers.

35 Sleep Alone - Moby

A very haunting piece written about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. If you get into this song, it really makes you appreciate the tragedy of the event. The original lyrics to this were "at least we died together, holding hands, flying through the sky". - PositronWildhawk

36 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
37 Thriller - Michael Jackson

I never got to finish looking at the video, because it was too disturbing.

I like the one with the zombies better.

38 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
39 Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin

Scariest dance track ever.

40 Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
