Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Dinner at Deviant's Palace - Cradle of Filth 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.

182 Rose of Pain - X Japan Rose of Pain - X Japan

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

183 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
184 Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt

The beat is really scary, awesome song though

185 Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
186 The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada
187 The Small Print - Muse The Small Print - Muse
188 The Horror of Our Love - Ludo 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.

189 Rooster Landing - Buckethead 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).

190 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.

191 Don't Dream It's Over - Crowded House 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.

192 Red - King Crimson Red - King Crimson
193 3 A.M. - Eminem 3 A.M. - Eminem
194 The Fox's Wedding - Hatsune Miku & Gumi

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

195 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

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

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

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

198 Addicted to Vaginal Skin - Cannibal Corpse 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

199 Mama - My Chemical Romance Mama - My Chemical Romance

Is it okay that I'm laughing so hard at the idea of this possibly giving someone nightmares? Because if anything, it damn well gave my father a scare when he first heard it!

My Chemical Romance is one of my favorite bands, like for ever. But, the first time I heard this song it was like "we all go to hell" and I freaked out. I was pretty young so yeah.-.

200 D.O.A. - Bloodrock D.O.A. - Bloodrock
