Top 10 Scariest Music Artists

Since it's the month of Halloween, I've decided to make my own list of the scariest musicians that ever lived.

The Top Ten

1 Marilyn Manson

MARILYN MANSON SHOULD BE AT LEAST IN THE TOP 5. Great artist I recommend checking him out he's a very intelligent individual and says the most interesting things ever - ComaWhite21

He looks like a monster, but he's awesome and he's my monster.

He's pretty out there.

Who is Marilyn Manson?

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 ...read more.

Rock Star. Musician. Psychopath.

Should be in first - Morbid_Deth

He killed Euronymous with 23 stabs. He burned churches.

3 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 ...read 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?

How the hell is Justin Bieber scary?

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

Please get this off the list Admin - SirSkeletorThe3rd

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

5 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

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.

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 ...read 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

How is justin bieber scarier than the vocalist shooting himself in the face, cutting his arms, the guitarist gettings stabbed to death by the bassist, the bassist burning churches, the drummer stabbing a gay man to death (lol) and the lyrics being about dead corpses and sacrilege? tell me justin bieber is scary fun fact, they even used the picture of the vocalists corpse to make album art and ate his brains making a necklace with skull fragments. and also nicki minaj's butt is fake - Morbid_Deth

This is a band, not a music artist... - Joshua9948
