Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 11

201 What Shall I Sing? - Attrition
202 Disturbia - Rihanna
203 A Day In the Life - The Beatles
204 Strange Days - The Doors
205 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

Some of the songs they put on here are ridiculously not scary in any way. This is an awesome song; not scary.

HOLY S***. This song is scary and disgusting as well. One of the scariest and one of the worst songs of all time. Who would even have the gut to make such a song.

206 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.

207 Rose of Pain - X Japan

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

208 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.

209 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
210 Centurion - Earl Sweatshirt

The beat is really scary, awesome song though

211 Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead
212 The Devil Is In the Details - Boards of Canada
213 The Small Print - Muse
214 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.

215 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).

216 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.

217 Red - King Crimson
218 The Fox's Wedding - Hatsune Miku & Gumi

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

219 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

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

220 Terror Time Again - Skycycle V 1 Comment
