2 Varg Vikernes Varg Vikernes Louis Cachet (born Kristian Vikernes) more popularly known as Varg Vikernes, is a Norwegian musician, writer, and a convicted murderer and arsonist. He is known as the frontman of the one-man band Burzum (named after a word in the Black Speech, which is a fictional language in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord more.

Rock Star. Musician. Psychopath.

He killed Euronymous with 23 stabs. He burned churches.

3 Charles Manson Charles Manson Charles Milles Manson (1934-2017) was an American criminal who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in the California desert in the late 1960s.

Principally because he had Dennis Wilson under his thumb. The song was called "Cease to Resist", after Dennis re-titled it. Manson's original was "Cease to Exist". That shows his true colours, now, doesn't it? - PetSounds

He counts because he wrote a song and once worked for The Beach Boys.

He is a serial killer, not an Musical Artist!

So I think you mean MARILYN Manson. Charles Manson was a serial killer, not a musical artist. Marilyn Manson actuallt took his last name for the band

4 GG Allin GG Allin Kevin Michael "GG" Allin (born Jesus Christ Allin; 1956-1993) was an American singer, songwriter and record producer, who performed and recorded with many groups during his career. He was best known for his graphic live performances which included self-mutilation, parading around the stage naked, fighting more.

Anybody who thinks Marilyn Manson is a bad influence on society, you have not heard of this guy before. This is literally a guy who spends most of his time getting drunk, getting nude on stage, fighting with other people, urinating on his audience, and eating his own feces. Oh my god. Even Marilyn Manson isn't this screwed up. He really isn't. He's actually a nice guy in real life whose songs actually do have positive messages disguised as bad ones. While this guy spends most of his life drinking and sleeping with teenagers.

Hated in the Nation is a horror-movie/punk documentry.. there are scenes where he fights members of his audience turning entire sets into violent, drug/liquor-fuelled bloodbaths.. plus he had always promised to commit suicide on stage (and to take some other peeps out with him) making GG in my humble opinion the scariest entertainer in modern music history.

He was going to commit suicide but died of a drug overdose before he got the chance.

Lol the fact his name was legitimately Jesus Christ and he is a complete psychopath is hilarious

He made songs called 'Expose Yourself to Kids' and 'Ten Year Old F***'. Need I say more?

He's scary because he did a cover of The Beatles' greatest song Let It Be!

How the hell is Justin Bieber scary?

Please get this off the list Admin - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Are we being legitimately serious? Justin Bieber sucks dick is true but he is not scary!

6 Gorgoroth Gorgoroth Gorgoroth is a Norwegian black metal band based in Bergen. Formed in 1992 by Infernus, the band is named after the dead plateau of evil and darkness in the land of Mordor (a fictional location in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings).

Infernus is the absolute true lord of darkness! He really is!

An actual satanic band.

Gorgoroth is led by a scary mofo named Infernis.. from wiki "On February 1, 2004, during a concert being recorded for a DVD in Kraków, Poland, the band displayed sheep heads on stakes, a bloodbath of 80 litres of sheep's blood, Satanic symbols, and four naked crucified models on stage. A police investigation took place... charges were later dropped because the band did not know that they were breaking the law.. I mean they were just dead sheep, but for somebody to purposefully perform on a stage covered in real blood and severed animal heads makes him scarier than Ozzy or Marilyn.. although Rev. Manson used to put on an amazing show back when he wasn't in his 40s, Manson still isn't as scary as Gorgoroth - nor does he try to be.

You're absolutely right. Marilyn Manson may have some satanic symbols in his music videos, but he was only using them because he was against religion because he thought it was a negative influence on society. These guys are one of the only known bands that actually worship the dark lord Satan.

7 Behemoth Behemoth Behemoth is a Polish blackened death metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground.
8 Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. more.

The worst rapper ever! - funnyuser

Fun Fact: Me and my mates had an argument over which is scarier, Nicki Minaj's butt or Marilyn Manson's "Sweet Dreams" video!

Have you seen the music video to Stupid Hoe? It's UNWATCHABLY scary!

9 Mayhem Mayhem Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, regarded as one of the pioneers of the Norwegian black metal scene. The band is also known for the infamous events surrounding them including the 1991 suicide of vocalist Dead (in which former guitarist Euronymous took pictures of Dead's more.

Why they're scary? For starters their lead singer tries so hard to be a corpse that he buries his clothes until the day of the show and wears black and white makeup to look like a corpse. Then, at the concerts, he would throw real pig heads at the crowd to weed out the posers. One day, he committed suicide and his guitarist, Euronymous, took a picture of him for a later album and ate parts of his brain and made necklaces out of his skull. He was then murdered by former bassist Varg Vikernes. The band also did church burnings too - SirSkeletorThe3rd

10 Sid Vicious Sid Vicious John Beverly, born John Simon Ritchie, later named Sid Vicious, was an English musician, most famous as the bass guitarist of the influential punk rock band the Sex Pistols, and notorious for his arrest for the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen.

My favourites

12 Trinidad James Trinidad James Nicholas Williams, better known by his stage name Trinidad James, is an American rapper based out of Atlanta, Georgia.

All the gold all up in his ring, gold all up in his watch, gold all up in his chain, and gold all up in his teeth make him a bit scary because, it's kinda scary seeing a guy made of pure gold - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Just listen to "Hamburger Lady" or don't. Please don't. Just don't. - Gruunge

Because this band is scarier than pop artists people like to make cheapshots at. Can we be serious?

14 Death Death Death was an American Death Metal band formed in 1983 by Chuck Schuldiner.

16 Roger Tiegs

The lead singer of Gorgoroth. And he's an artist that actually worships and follows the devil. Anyone who says Marilyn Manson is a satanist, don't believe it. This guy is the absolute true satanist here.

He's not scary. he's UGLY
