Top Ten Most Disturbing Songs of All Time

These are the songs that disturb you the most, be it their lyrics, their message, or the way they're sung

The Top Ten Most Disturbing Songs of All Time

1 Daddy - Korn

You can hear the pain in his voice as he sings. When he starts crying and screaming in pain of the memory it breaks my heart more than any song ever has. This is the reason I love metal

The lyrics are depressing and dark as it is, but then hear how he sings it, he defetely let all his feelings in his heart out.

The fact that this is true makes it more disturbing than other songs on the list. The artist ACTUALLY experienced this. Not every day you hear something this dark only to realize its true.

Though I hate listening to this song. Songs like this are the reason why I love metal

2 I C*m Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Cannibal Corpse members and fans are sick,disgusting and degenerate edgelords.

A good song, but you never forget those lyrics. They stick with you, haunt you

The title is enough

I showed this to my class, and now I'm on a list.

3 Kim - Eminem

You can picture everything in this song. You can't really picture EMinem the same way after picturing him murdering his wife.

This is way more disturbing than Stan, it's about him murdering his own wife, this song was based on his feelings, and his desire to actually kill his wife while Stan was just more of a warning message to not get too reliant on your idols

Its disturbing but it's a good song

Shouldve been number one OH MY GOSH ITS DISTURBING. The lyrics and the sound effects he used at the end was a bit too much for me. I wish I never heard this song again

4 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is about killing someone and having sex with their dead body...

Love this song

this one... just don't

5 Fitter, Happier - Radiohead

I looked at the lyrics and this is some artsy stuff. I really like it

Creepiest song I've ever heard

6 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

Watch the music video and you'll see why it's on here

That director's cut though

7 Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique

My god this is really disturbing but I got to admit the piano is perfect and the song it's self is good but the topic is dark in its own nature

Makes you sick to your stomach

The fact that Stan and maybe even Kim are before this is a joke, listen all he way through and you’ll know why

This literally is the most disturbing song I’ve ever heard...

8 Sweet Dreams - Marilyn Manson

Really any of the legendary Marilyn Manson's songs could make this list, but it is this one that is most disturbing just by the way he sings it


Just an example of a freak of nature making a demented display of "creativity". I was actually looking for disturbing foreign (Latino, French, Moroccan, Japanese, etc) songs list and not just punk metal junk.
-F. C. Fox

9 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

I love this song it isn't bad or gross why is this on here if you don't like something or like something that is everybody's on decission if they don't please be rude about it.

Such a great song, but that part where Draiman tells off his mom for all those years of abuse is only for those who can handle a truly disturbing song

That “Mommy Don’t hit me! ” Part really gave me the willies

10 Stan - Eminem

This song is good but it is really disturbing. Imagine a man having a crush and having a wife, just image. its really disturbing.

The story of a fan who took his obsession too far. It's the last two verses that are most disturbing

The Contenders

11 Revolution 9 - The Beatles

For the beatles, it's definitely a change of pace, but in terms of the avant garde stuff, it's a pioneer in the genre and actually relatively tame for me

Such a weird song with terrifying audio. This coming from the beatles is definitely weird

This is so flipping scary, most of it is backwards and keeps me awake at night just thinking about the voices and the petrifying audio.

Really strange, but I like it)))

12 Date Rape - Sublime

Jolly happy song about a woman who gets raped by a man who later gets raped in prison himself

13 Iowa - Slipknot

I was absolutely terrified listening to this song for the first time, the bass line and vocals are on point along with sampling guitar and precision/drums. Listen to it in complete darkness and let your brain take you to hell.

Even though people say they're scary, off stage they are the nicest people you will meet.
yeah, their songs are creepy to the average person, but the people are good humans

Corey was cutting himself with glass while recording this song.

Deserves to be in the top ten, this album is pure evil and I love it

14 One - Metallica

The music video version makes it even creepier.

People are wondering why this song's here.

It's based off Trumbo's novel Johny Got His Gun ; which describes an American soldier from WW1.
The soldier while crossing the trenches gets hit by an artillery shell, he loses his limbs, eyes, tongue, jaw, nose and ears..and he's left in that state..and begs to god to take his life and end his suffering.

15 Hamburger Lady - Throbbing Gristle

It’s disgusting, it’s vile, it made me gag for thirty minutes, it deserves to be on number 1

16 Willy Bum Bum - Alien Red Wolf

Barely a song, really. But once you hear it it scars you forever

Sounds like Stewie from Family Guy


17 Paper Cuts - Nirvana

I don't know what's disturbing about this song.

18 Vorkuta - Gulaggh

This music is horrible, full of cries aggressing

19 Rape Me - Nirvana

that title,...

20 Last Resort - Papa Roach

The lyrics are about suicide, almost to the point where it glorifies it. It also mentions mutilation. Surprisingly there wasn't any controversy surrounding this song.

This song is made by whiny emos.

21 Projekt Misanthropia - Stalaggh
22 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G
23 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation

What? Forcing men to rip off their ding dongs? And drilling holes in their buttholes to make a uterus? Disgusting.

24 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

This song makes you actually visualize everything in the song. This should be number one. The songs ranked above this are nursery rhymes compared to this

I'm not disturbed easily... yet I get the creeps listening to this song!

25 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

No not scary at all.

26 Polly - Nirvana

About a 14 year old girl who was kidnapped and rapped in Washington state and is sung in the mind of the rapist in my opinion even more disturbing then rape me and many others

Forget what I said about Rape Me.

27 Flayed and Consumed - Infant Annihilator
28 Big Bad Wolf - In This Moment

An excellent metal song with a new, more disturbing, take on the Three Little Pigs

29 Yonkers - Tyler, the Creator
30 Demons - Imagine Dragons

Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this, but there's always been something about this song that I can't stand, something that just sounds disturbing

Not disturbing at all.

It's sorta disturbing to me, and this is coming from an Imagine Dragons fan.

Not disturbing at all, in fact I think it’s kind of beautiful

31 Disposable Teens - Marilyn Manson

Manson claims he survived abortion and wrote an entire song based around it.

32 Halls of Illusions - Insane Clown Posse

Another artist with many disturbing songs, but it is this masterpiece that is most haunting

33 Living Dead Girl - Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie just had to be on this list. This is perhaps the creepiest of his songs

34 Every Breath You Take - The Police

Ok it at least sounds like he's stalking the other person. I mean "Every breath you take / Every move you make / Every bond you break / Every step you take / I'll be watching you"? And "Oh can't you see? / You belong to me"? Creepy.

35 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

Careful with that axe eugene is much more disturbing in my opinion
But most of Pink Floyd's older work is very disturbing

36 Baby - Justin Bieber

This is so scary, I had nightmares for days after my first listen. I showed it to a friend and he had even worse nightmares. It's like if dj khaled made music high. Thanks for more nightmares.

Scared and scarred me for life

Most abominable, disturbing trash I've ever listened to.

It's not disturbing at all. Its happy

37 Mein Teil - Rammstein

Just go look up the music video and come back and tell me this is not disturbing.

You are what you eat.

38 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

I rather find it funny than disturbing.

This song is AWESOME!

39 Frankie Teardrop - Suicide

No musics, just lyrics. It's about that factory guy named Frankie who have a normal life and have kids. But later in the song, he went insane, loses everything including his wife and kids and he killed himself. Screams were later heard in the song, which it's disturbing. This should be number 1. Daddy by Korn and Kim by Eminem is'nt really disturbing enough. Poor Frank.

Damn, I really think that this must be in the top 10.. Have you heard all the screams?.. so disturbing.. the voice of the frontman is so sick.. And the whisperings and the repeated words remain fixed in your head. This is so damn scary but fascinating at the same time.

I love this band but this song I can barely get through it I literally had to switch it to the song ghost rider
Which is on the same album

40 I've Plummed This Whole Neighborhood - Nurse With Wound

This song is basically very distorted white noise with very distorted voices put on it with some weird talking... Nurse With Wound is really weird.

41 Timothy - The Buoys

This song was banned from the airway at first due to the lyrics. They tried to say Timothy was a donkey which eventually allowed it to be played. This is definitely not about a donkey. It has a good beat with disturbing lyrics.

Three men are trapped in a coal mine cave-in.
The first two kill and eat their companion to survive; that's pretty disturbing.

42 Scissors - Slipknot

Possibly Slipknots most heavy son. Seems to depict a kid performing surgery on himself.

43 Heroin - The Velvet Underground
44 Walls Fall Out - Cheryl Merkowski

I don't know why this is disturbing, it's AMAZING. Thank you Cheryl and Madge for being wonderful examples to us all. LYUPS.

45 Cleaning Out My Closet - Angel Haze
46 Pretty - Korn

I don't understand why anyone added this. It's about how Jonathan Davis worked as a coroner, and how he had to deal with a corpse of a dead baby who was raped by her own dad, and smashed on the bathroom floor. Really disturbing if you ask me.

This is really disturbing, about how as a coroner Jonathan Davis (singer) once was handling the body of a toddler who had her face smashed and was raped.

47 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

The clip is kinda disturbing

48 Fack - Eminem
49 Misery - Maroon 5

I like this song and I never found it disturbing.

50 Jesus Christ Pose - Soundgarden
