Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 10

181 What Shall I Sing? - Attrition
182 Country Death Song - Violent Femmes

A song about a man waking up his daughter in the middle of the night so he can take her to a well wich he ends up pushing her off! And through depression the man hangs himself. A song for the whole family

183 Strange Days - The Doors
184 Dinner at Deviant's Palace - Cradle of Filth

Unsettling when played forwards, even more when you reverse it and hear the kid recite the Lord's Prayer.

185 Rose of Pain - X Japan

Just that creepy whiny singing at the beginning with sad piano music (shudder)

186 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
187 Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt

The beat is really scary, awesome song though

188 Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
189 The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada
190 The Small Print - Muse
191 The Horror of Our Love - Ludo

From the perspective of a murderer stalking the person he's in love with and singing about all the messed-up things he's done, wants to do, and which happen to both people in the relationship as a result. The understated lullaby-like tone just makes it more disturbing. It begins with "I'm a killer, cold and wrathful, silent sleeper, I've been inside your bedroom." Quite a cool song.

192 Rooster Landing - Buckethead

The only creepy thing about buckethead is that he wears a Michael myers mask (and I'm not talking about the Michael myers who did the austin power movies).

193 The One - Elena Siegman

Those wails and screams. My God! It's very creepy. Not to mention The first and the second stanza are sung in a creepy and seductive voice.

194 Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House

I've always thought this song was kind of creepy, but after I saw it in Stephen King's The Stand it made it so much worse. That movie creeps me out, and so does this song.

195 Red - King Crimson
196 The Fox's Wedding - Hatsune Miku & Gumi

The lyrics are violent, but the singing and music are beautiful. Not creepy enough - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

197 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Okay, who isn't scared of this song when they hear it the first couple of times?

198 Terror Time Again - Skycycle V 1 Comment
199 Scooby Doo: Where Are You? Theme - Larry Markes

Tell me about it. The intro to Season 2 always sacred the crap outta me.

200 Addicted to Vaginal Skin - Cannibal Corpse

Based on the true story of grave robber Ed Gein, who was the inspiration for Norman Bates (Psycho), Buffalo Bill (The Silence of the Lambs), and Leatherface (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre).

It's gross this weirdo cuts open women's vaginas and eats the meat and guts
