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

1 Daddy - Korn

A masterpiece by Korn, a truly disturbing story delivered in a truly twisted way - Shake_n_Bake13

Daddy definitely most disturbing however I think Kim by eminem should be second place

yes - Morbid_Deth

This is about a child getting molested and his mom not doing anything. And at the end Jonathan literally Cries. It Doesn’t Get More Disturbing Than That. - GreenDayFan21

2 Kim - Eminem

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

There is a censored line that is censored Evan on uncensored versions and the line is about killing a four year old - Eminemfan1717

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


3 I C*m Blood - Cannibal Corpse

A good song, but you never forget those lyrics. They stick with you, haunt you - Shake_n_Bake13

The title is enough

Pretty bad but I think Necropedophile is worser in terms of disturbing. - Metalmaniakkk

4 Fitter, Happier - Radiohead

Creepiest song I've ever heard

5 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

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

That director's cut though

6 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

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

7 Vorkuta - Gulaggh

This music is horrible, full of cries aggressing

8 Stan - Eminem

The story of a fan who took his obsession too far. It's the last two verses that are most disturbing - Shake_n_Bake13

9 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 - Shake_n_Bake13

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

10 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

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 - Shake_n_Bake13

That “Mommy Don’t hit me! ” Part really gave me the willies - GreenDayFan21

The Newcomers

? Insane - Eminem
? Cleaning Out My Closet - Angel Haze

The Contenders

11 Willy Bum Bum - Alien Red Wolf

Barely a song, really. But once you hear it it scars you forever - Shake_n_Bake13

12 Paper Cuts - Nirvana
13 Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique
14 Revolution 9 - The Beatles
15 Date Rape - Sublime
16 One - Metallica
17 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G
18 Last Resort - Papa Roach
19 Rape Me - Nirvana
20 Big Bad Wolf - In This Moment

An excellent metal song with a new, more disturbing, take on the Three Little Pigs - Shake_n_Bake13

21 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 - Shake_n_Bake13

This is one of my top 5 songs, it's a very good song, no way that its disturbing. But that's just me.. - Catacorn

22 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
23 Halls of Illusions - Insane Clown Posse

Another artist with many disturbing songs, but it is this masterpiece that is most haunting - Shake_n_Bake13

24 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.

25 Iowa - Slipknot

I'm just voting for this one because it deserves to at least be in top 5 the number 1 though is definitely daddy by korn

Slipknot is simply the most disturbing band... Humping severed goat heads on stage, huffing roting Bird corpses in a jar befor a show, not washing their masks while on tour, having songs about playing with dead bodies / locking a lady in a box & not feeding her / suicide in the bloodiest ways / a kid who gives himself surgery / a song LITTERALY called “The Heretic Anthem”... This band is the embodiment of what a scary metal band should be.

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 - donovanthorn

27 Living Dead Girl - Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie just had to be on this list. This is perhaps the creepiest of his songs - Shake_n_Bake13

28 Hamburger Lady - Throbbing Gristle
29 Yonkers - Tyler, the Creator
30 Disposable Teens - Marilyn Manson

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

31 Every Breath You Take - The Police
32 Bright Eyes - Blind Guardian

This song gives me chills - its music, vocals and lyrics:
“Hey, mother stubborn, I really hate you. If you say yes, I will say no”
“Watching you, Watching you, Watching you …” - Metal_Treasure

33 I've Plummed This Whole Neighborhood - Nurse With Wound
34 Timothy - The Buoys

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

35 Fack - Eminem
36 Walls Fall Out - Cheryl Merkowski
37 Chop Suey! - System of a Down
38 Mein Teil - Rammstein
39 Baby - Justin Bieber

It's not disturbing at all. Its happy
