Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Vicarious - Tool

It changed my way of thinking about society and the way people should look at things.

182 Hurdy Gurdy Man - Donovan
183 Asylum Playrooms - Shadow Man Soundtrack

The are different events happening in the background which ranges from crying to laughing to squeaking rubber ducks. Listening to this should give you chills

184 The Headstream: River of Death - Enemite
185 Vaii Han - Dvar

One of the creepiest band you will ever heard

186 What Shall I Sing? - Attrition
187 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

188 Strange Days - The Doors
189 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.

190 Rose of Pain - X Japan

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

191 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
192 Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt

The beat is really scary, awesome song though

193 Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
194 The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada
195 The Small Print - Muse
196 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.

197 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).

198 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.

199 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.

200 Red - King Crimson
