The Contenders: Page 2
This song is based on the real life story of body snatcher Ed Gein. Gein would always go to graveyards and dig up the dead bodies of people so that he can use their skin and bones as decorations for his house.
Gein was also the inspiration for the norman bates, buffalo bill, and leatherface.
I love this song, but I definitely will admit that those moans of suffering at the end were pretty damn freaky!
Creepy, but normal by Slayer standards.V 3 Comments
Listen to this song and try not to see a crazed Charles Manson in the corner of your room. Come to think of it... a lot of songs on "The White Album" would have you invision such things. -
Hard to believe that this is a Beatles song.
Charles Manson ruined this song for me..
WHY. IS. THIS. SONG. SO. CATCHY!V 1 Comment
The song as a whole is great, especially Azealia's rapping, but the part of the song where she screams the lyrics is slightly disturbing... not to mention the video in which she has mouths instead of eyes.
This song just gives me shivers, especially the very beginning with the sound that's like a distorted organ and that haunting voice of Amy Lee. This should be higher. - jmoulds98
I love this song! Not to creepy though...
I love Evanescence bu this song is very scary and disturbing.
This song so so scary. Sounds of screams at the beginning and a creepy bass and bass drum rift. Corey's screams, scary vocals, and bada** guitar rifts. Around the end basically Corey goes mental and then calms down but is still crazy. Also while recording this song, Corey was cutting himself up everywhere. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I actually remember as a 10 year old kid, this song actually made me hide under my blankets at night. (I didn't know who they were back at that time) When I looked up the song's backstory when was 17, I started to get goosebumps. - Mumbizz01
Corey got naked and cut himself with glass while throwing up while recording this.
All of the pain and abuse that frontman Corey Taylor did to himself just to make this song is disturbing in itself.V 5 Comments
This song is scary. 1st it starts with the creepiest use of the triangle ever! Then it has Tom (I think) chanting "Lah" like he's having an organs or something then it sounds like he's struggling or being possessed then you hear heavy breathing with the sound of a bada** guitar in the background with a random hit from the scariest gong ever. Then there's the gibberish, high pitched voices, messed up violin (or fiddle) and the voices at the end. This song should be in the top 3. - SirSkeletorThe3rd
OH MY GOD! This song is a total collection of nightmarish sounds and collaberation of what Hell would sound like. - fireinside96
This has to be the scariest song ever.
This song deserves to be in the top 10. The simple drum track, his screams, and the songs subject matter make it so much deserving for a higher place on the list.
Any one who listens to this will instantly but it at number 1, trust me this is disturbing, turn of the lights and you will get freaked out.
Everyone can remember the first time you heard Frankie Teardrop. Horrifying!
The screams in this song are so scary. 0_0 - djpenquin999V 8 Comments
Good God, this bad makes Mayhem look like Linkin Park on terms of heaviness and creepiness - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Disturbed? Shut up. Just listen to this. This song features a monotone voice describing a pedophile murdering a child.
Creepiest stuff I've ever heard.
This song is basically about the psychotic rage that is hidden within all of our minds, and after being pushed to a certain limit... we will eventually snap and let it all loose. Now that's super scary!
This is actually the reversed audio of one of the band members, Sid, screaming into a microphone the day after his grandfather died.
This is second album Iowa's intro and so damn HORRIBLE!
Is just death deaath and again DEATHV 1 Comment
I dare you to translate it from german and not get disturbed or scared. As if the terrifying backward strings and heavy as a boulder guitar riffs aren't freaky enough.
This song talk about the history of a men that make a date just to eat the other men and he agrees, this really happened in Germany.
The song is about a German cannibal but somehow, manages to chart in the top 5 on German Music. Germany knows their music - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Really surprised to know this song was number 2 in the German music charts.V 2 Comments
Not THAT scary, but backwards it's pretty disturbing. But the music video can give nightmares MAYBE(Due to "Magical Mystery Boy")
If you guys out there seriously think that any of these other songs in this long list are terrifying just listen to this one which is 1+ hour of what sounds like a girl being demon possessed and what ever else all of the back ground noise and music is. THIS music makes ALL of the others in this list sound TAME as baby songs! THAT is how truly terrifying this music is!
Hearing Dave emit agonizing screams to an industrial sounding metal track is terrifying enough, but those zombie groans he makes halfway through are enough to give you nightmares.
So scary it's on here twice!
Why isn't this number one?
It's about Maynard'so experience getting molested as a child.
Okay, I'll be honest, Daddy by Korn gives me good old PTSD, but Prison Sex always stuck with me due to it's theme of child molestation... And that video... Ohhh, that video.
