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 Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

Marilyn Manson in my opinion is a cool guy with different tastes besides he's bos js

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

How many churches has this satanist burnt? out done by all of the nordic pagans

Why are a blind christian like you here? And no he isn't a satanist, his songs usually is about dark subjects about modern society actually.

I don't think I've heard one song from them that doesn't bash Christianity. Also I've heard the lead singer is an actual satanist.

Rock Star. Musician. Psychopath.

6 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.

I've even heard that he used to take laxatives before going onstage so that way he can crap on his fans!

... That's enough internet for one day..

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

7 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?

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

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

He is a serial killer, not an Musical Artist!

8 Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

Set chickens on fire,pees on the alamo,used cocaine as his life force,bit off two doves head and bit off a bats head ON STAGE and yet he is lower then freaking Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus who are NOTHING compared to the original prince of darkness himself!

I'm cool with Marilyn Manson at number 1 but Ozzy NEEDS to be in the top 10 at least.

He bit a bats and two doves heads off. Do I need to say anything more?

9 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988.

Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age.

12 Björk Björk Guðmundsdóttir, known mononymously as Björk, is an Icelandic singer and songwriter. She is most famous for her eclectic music styles and experimentation on electronic pop music.
13 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).

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.

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

An actual satanic band.

14 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

15 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 ...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

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

16 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.
