The Contenders: Page 3

41 Screams of the Undead - Demon Hunter
42 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.

43 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

44 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.

45 Black Sabbath - Vader
46 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

47 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson
48 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) - Marilyn Manson

The original is done by the eurythmics.

49 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.

50 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
51 Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin

Scariest dance track ever.

52 Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
53 The Exorcist - Possessed

Amazing song from the godfathers of death metal.

54 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.

55 Let Go - Red
56 Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
57 Let's Get This Party Started - Korn
58 Polly - Nirvana

Is this song about rape?

Based on the horrifying true story about how a 14 year old girl was raped and tortured by serial rapist Gerald Friend.

59 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

60 Fade to Black - Metallica
