21 Screams of the Undead - Demon Hunter Screams of the Undead - Demon Hunter
22 Dance with the Devil - Immortal Technique 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

23 Used to Love Her - Guns N Roses 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

24 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed 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.

25 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer - Elmo & Patsy 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.

26 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

Dark song about a kid who kills his father then takes his gun and shoots up a school

Why is this at 34? It is LITERALLY about shooting up a school!

27 Let Go - Red Let Go - Red
28 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
29 Sleep Alone - Moby 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

30 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
31 Thriller - Michael Jackson 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.

32 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
33 The Exorcist - Possessed The Exorcist - Possessed

Amazing song from the godfathers of death metal.

34 My Immortal - Evanescence My Immortal - Evanescence

My Immortal is very sad and depressing song but this song is SCARY? NEVER! Amy Lee and Ben Moody's lyrics, piano and music is very great combination. This song is nothing compared to Korn's Daddy and Eminem's Kim.

35 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

Doom riffs and talks about satan burning in hell its pretty damn dark

36 Let's Get This Party Started - Korn Let's Get This Party Started - Korn
37 Run for Your Life - The Beatles Run for Your Life - The Beatles

If this song was done today, it would be banned.

38 Riders On the Storm - The Doors Riders On the Storm - The Doors
39 New York Mining Disaster 1941 - Bee Gees New York Mining Disaster 1941 - Bee Gees

"Have you seen my wife Mr. Jones?
Do you know what its like on the outside?
Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide"

40 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles
