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 Daddy - Korn Cover Art

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.

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

2 I C*m Blood - Cannibal Corpse I C*m Blood - Cannibal Corpse Cover Art

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 Kim - Eminem Cover Art

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 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

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 Fitter, Happier - Radiohead Cover Art

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 Closer - Nine Inch Nails Cover Art

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

That director's cut though

7 Sweet Dreams - Marilyn Manson Sweet Dreams - Marilyn Manson Cover Art

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

8 Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique Cover Art

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...

9 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed Down With the Sickness - Disturbed Cover Art

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 Stan - Eminem Cover Art

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

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 Newcomers

? Freezing Moon - Mayhem Freezing Moon - Mayhem Cover Art

The Contenders

11 Revolution 9 - The Beatles Revolution 9 - The Beatles Cover Art

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 Date Rape - Sublime Cover Art

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

13 Iowa - Slipknot Iowa - Slipknot Cover Art

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.

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

14 One - Metallica One - Metallica Cover Art

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 Hamburger Lady - Throbbing Gristle Cover Art

About a burn victim who is charred from the waist up. It has a creepy atmosphere to.

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 Willy Bum Bum - Alien Red Wolf Cover Art

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

Sounds like Stewie from Family Guy


17 Paper Cuts - Nirvana Paper Cuts - Nirvana Cover Art

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

18 Rape Me - Nirvana Rape Me - Nirvana Cover Art

what just the title itself tells me so many things

that title,...

19 Last Resort - Papa Roach Last Resort - Papa Roach Cover Art

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.

About suicide.

This song is made by whiny emos.

20 Vorkuta - Gulaggh Vorkuta - Gulaggh Cover Art

This music is horrible, full of cries aggressing

21 Projekt Misanthropia - Stalaggh

It's just creepy.

22 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G Cover Art
23 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath Cover Art

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!

24 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation Cover Art

Think of how a gender reassignment would be like and then watching the music video/ reading the lyrics/ imagining what it would look like, but also and altogether phenomenal song

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

25 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails Hurt - Nine Inch Nails Cover Art

No not scary at all.
