The Contenders: Page 11

201 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.

202 Rose of Pain - X Japan

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

203 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

It relates closely to the Columbine High School massacre and the chorus is a reference to the many children running in fear from the gunman.

Actually a song about a boy with murderous fantasies, but made into an almost happy sounding song due to the writer's background in jingle writing.

It is a song about a school shooting.

204 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
205 Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt

The beat is really scary, awesome song though

206 Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
207 The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada
208 The Small Print - Muse
209 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.

210 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).

211 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.

212 Red - King Crimson
213 The Fox's Wedding - Hatsune Miku & Gumi

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

214 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

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

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

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

217 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

218 D.O.A. - Bloodrock
219 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath
220 Sweets Time - Touhou

The lyrics might seem innocent, but read the interpretation. so creepy and awesome! Flandre I love you!
