Scariest Songs Ever WrittenHalloween is still many months away but any time during the year is close enough to Halloween to do a list like this. These are some of the scariest songs I have ever heard. Try to listen to these songs in the pitch black room.
The Top Ten
A song about a little boy getting constantly raped by his parents. How could you get any worse than that its just terrible
This song caused lots of people to believe that Rick Davis (Jonathan Davis's father) is a child molester. Although his son has stated many times that this song was written about a family friend who sexually abused him. When a 12-year old Jonathan tried to turn to his family, he said, they ignored him. Neither Jonathan or Rick will say who the person was, though both say it was a woman.
This really shows how metal and rock really speaks and is truly a musical art. While mainstream ass artists talk about their meaningless crap, Jonathan Davis sang about this. It's not something fake. It's something that really happened and it's a shame but I'm positive more and more people know about this. This is why I love metal because it has real music words. Praise to Jonathan Davis!
This song is about a cry for help that never came featuring Jonathan Davis seemingly self-healing childhood abuse and trauma through pure rage and drug induced mania. While the song follows the same dark mood and tone of every other song on this album, this particular song's content and ending is what sets it on top of the throne of "scariest songs ever". The band's music, following Davis' lead, falls apart towards the end into dark burst of drones and percussive stabbings while Davis painfully cries alone. Microphones pick up laughter and mockery of Jonathan by the band. The song concludes with a motherlike figure singing and soothing Jonathan out of his tantrum while the instruments in the background eerily continue to haunt.
This is basically Eminem screaming at his ex wife the entire song. This is arguably Slim's scariest song ever made, and quite possibly the scariest rap song.
My opinion has been changed. Great job, Eminem. You've officially managed to give me nightmares for the rest of my life.
HE MURDERS HIS WIFE BY CHOCKING HER TO DEATH! HE ALSO SCREAMS THROUGH THE WHOLE SONG! THIS GAVE ME NIGHTMARES
He raps about forcing his wife into his car, driving into a secluded spot, and then chasing after her when she tried to run, and catches her and slits her throat. A favorite of feminist. You'll have a new appreciation of this song if you get cheated on.
Has anyone heard this song backwards? Holy crap, is it scary! Near the beginning it has a little girl saying, 'Satan, look at me please'... HOLY-- I couldn't sleep without a light for a week! I am scarred for life.
The freakiest thing is that this is the Beatles, not Korn, Oceano, or any thrash metal band. It's the Beatles for gods sake. I don't even thing it's considered a song, I thing it's just noise, white noise.
I listened to this one while having Beatles songs played on shuffle. No. Just...no.
This song scares me so much! And, if you look it up, this song has MORE lyrics than "Number 9, number 9, number 9". Look it up, its really creepy. But, if you listen to it backwards, is where the "Paul is Dead" theory is put in a little. It scare the living daylights out of me every time I listen to it backwards! What's creepy is when its backwards and you hear "Satan, look at me please". HOLY SMOKES. I know this is an 'experimental' song, but it would be better if it wasn't released. Plus, I wonder if John had taken a little much drugs before recording..
This is the scariest thing ever just watch it or don't you'll have to have sleep with the lights on nightmares for life from this agh help me.
I know we all hate Justin Bieber but his songs are not scary. They are HORRIBLE. But it does not mean they are scary. Even if you are just kidding its NOT SCARY. the only scary part is that he sounds like a girl. And I am serious.
I really don't know if I can listen to this song again
Absolutely terrifying. It sounds like he's singing about himself.
I love Depressive Black Metal Songs but this is look like you have a metal heart as it's empty inside and you hammer it with all power you got. After listening this song you will understand, you get changed and never feel the same as before.
This is my feeling about it.
The fact that it's made up of real screams of terror by real mental patients is enough to make this song/album so much more disturbing! If this doesn't scare you I don't think anything will!
The most horrifying "song" on this list and possibly ever written. The Beatles one is another good choice, too... That one used to scare me as a teen, Stalaggh would have given me death nightmares.
I searched this up and it sounds like my little brother
"It gets very descriptive and has awful imagery depicted. This should be number 4 at least.
It's creepy Eminem takes his daughter to the beach with his ex wife Kim's dead body in the trunk and when they get there Eminem disposes her body in the ocean and making up excuses to make sure his daughter doesn't find out that her mom is dead.
Basically the sequel to Kim. Eminem takes his daughter with him to dispose Kim's dead body into the ocean. Trying his hardest to no let his daughter know that she's dead.
Talking about rolling his wife off a bridge after killing her.
Love Eminem's music but this song, NOT one of my favorites!
First and best heavy metal song ever written, and the creepiest too. You can't make a guitar sound more scary than this. Tony Iommi is just the best!
Even rab halford praises the song saying it's the most evil song ever written, if you think this is not the scariest song then actually you don't get the lyrics into your head
How is this so far down. This was probably the first genuinely scary song and remains the best.
Especially if you're hearing it for the first time without any context.
Scary? It's pretty badass, to be honest.
Not scary at all. The story is a bit creepy, the singer having nightmares and such. Satan telling him to kill himself to be with the girl he lost to suicide, but the song itself? The lyrics? The sound? No. Not at all scary
This song isn't really that scary. David wrote it because his girlfriend committed suicide. It's a really depressing song if you tell me.
What it ain't scary its awesome and badass
Not at all scary, the video is disturbing but not scary at all
Not scary at all. Seriously.
Scary song with a disturbingly creepy video that would perfect for Halloween
The cover is starting to scare me.
Alex Mason and Viktor Reznov from Call of Duty were locked up in here.
It's true that Gulaggh used mental patients for the screams of agony but luckily none of the insane were harmed! The asylums gave Gulaggh permission to use them. Many of the patients say that it was fun which means that either they are too insane to know what fun is or they were sworn into secrecy with Gulaggh or they would be sacrificed by the great Goat.
God, this is not a song! Its real children and elderly woman whoa are patients at an insane asylum scream therapy! GOD DAMN! Still the rumors about the kidnapping of said patients are fake, the band members asked for permition to take 15 patients for an hour or so to record this abomination. They used an abandoned chapel to record it! If this doesn't make number 1 then people who vote for other songs know nothing!
Too damn eerie! Scream Therapy by real mental patients. To top it all this was recorded at an abandoned chapel!
This song isn't scary at all its just weird.
Creepiest song I've ever heard.
So creepy it makes me think about Insidious
When you sneak a midnight snack and you don't want to wake anyone up
The song's roots are even more terrifying than the song. The story, for one, tells the tale of a burn victim whose face and body looked like raw hamburger meat. The music video accompanying it is just as bad, with close-ups of the woman's face and the grayscale hospital, but the video that inspired the song itself brings things to a whole new level - the real footage of two men holding a woman down and killing her baby, turning it into hamburger meat, and forcing the woman to eat it. The song's roots are even more terrifying than the song.
Scarier than any of the other songs on here.
Yeah, this is just insanely creepy. Song about a burn victim who looks like hamburger... Delicious.
Hamburger Lady combines cold, mechanical electronics and thoroughly effects-fed vocals, with lyrics taken from a medical letter involving a severe burn-ward victim.
The fact that I had to add this myself is just ridiculous, I thought it was top 10 scariest songs not your top 10 favourite songs. Songs like Dead Skin Mask by Slayer are quite creepy but this is genuinely terrifying.
I call it Sauron metal.
Sounds like the entrance to hell.
This is from another dimension.
For everyone saying this isn't scary: this song is about a man who murders his girlfriend because he fears that he might lose her. Then he preserves her body and has sex with it. Then eventually, the corpse comes back from the dead and kills him in the same way.
Than scared the yellow jeans out of me
This is without a doubt the most horrifying plot a song could have.
Wow I didn't think it would actually be scary
I love rocking out to this song, but I'll admit that the child abuse lyrics that David screams are disturbing.
It's like the Heavy Metal version of Kim by Eminem. But instead focuses on Child Abuse rather than Domestic Abuse.
That bridge is so disturbing
I cannot listen to this song...
This really isn't scary at all. There are random deftones songs where Chino would let out a high pitch scream. This is definitely one of my favorites from their debut.
I have to admit it is a pretty creepy song. Especially when he screams like he possessed.
So scary when a strange voice start to sing and the worst, is it that we don't know when! So creep!
The scream makes me smile every time
This song is based on the real life story of body snatcher Ed Gein. Gein would always go to graveyards and dig up the dead bodies of people so that he can use their skin and bones as decorations for his house.
Gein was also the inspiration for the norman bates, buffalo bill, and leatherface.
Creepy, but normal by Slayer standards.
I love this song, but I definitely will admit that those moans of suffering at the end were pretty damn freaky!
It is about a teenager named billy, who gives up on his life to join a gang, sell and do drugs, and commit other crimes. Then, one day he meets his gang, the bring in a woman, billy takes her upstairs and stomps on her face til he breaks her jaw. His gang later comes up and they all kick her til they break her ribs then beat her up even more. After that they each take turns raping her. Billy takes a new.22 gun and points it at her head, and then finds out it was his mom. He shoots her in the head;killing her, and then is horrified that it was his mother so he commits suicide. After that, Immortal Technique tells a very creepy yet short story about devils, but anyway, amazing rapping.
I'm not the biggest rap fan but this song is horrifying The ultimate fall from grace And a warning to beware evil. Its all fun and games until you are staring into the eyes of a loved one
Scariest song in the world... I have literally never heard any scarier song than this. Nothing else on this list even comes close to this...
I umm.. I didn't know why life was after hearing this song... My mouth couldn't close once I heard he killed his mom. What did I just hear... This is just... DISTURBING
This song deserves to be in the top 10. The simple drum track, his screams, and the songs subject matter make it so much deserving for a higher place on the list.
Any one who listens to this will instantly but it at number 1, trust me this is disturbing, turn of the lights and you will get freaked out.
Everyone can remember the first time you heard Frankie Teardrop. Horrifying!
This song gets under your skin and stays there, haunting the recesses of your brain in your weakest moments.
This song is awesome and so is curtain
This song just gives me shivers, especially the very beginning with the sound that's like a distorted organ and that haunting voice of Amy Lee. This should be higher.
I love this song! Not to creepy though...
I love Evanescence bu this song is very scary and disturbing.
This song is scary. 1st it starts with the creepiest use of the triangle ever! Then it has Tom (I think) chanting "Lah" like he's having an organs or something then it sounds like he's struggling or being possessed then you hear heavy breathing with the sound of a bada** guitar in the background with a random hit from the scariest gong ever. Then there's the gibberish, high pitched voices, messed up violin (or fiddle) and the voices at the end. This song should be in the top 3.
OH MY GOD! This song is a total collection of nightmarish sounds and collaberation of what Hell would sound like.
This has to be the scariest song ever.
Makes Revolution 9 sound completely normal.
The song as a whole is great, especially Azealia's rapping, but the part of the song where she screams the lyrics is slightly disturbing... not to mention the video in which she has mouths instead of eyes.
