21 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

Alestor Crowleys ghost comes and brings you to hell... 'nuff said. -

I personally love this song, and my mother said it sounded like graveyard music

Ozzy really is the prince of darkness! O/ - Tylerlangford1234

This song is amazng, to be honest. Not scary. But I do remember waking u from a nightmare related to it the night I heard it.

22 Poltergeist - Zatox
23 Burn the Pages of Quran - Janaza

All those Muslims better be scared of this song. First the Quran, then the mosques

24 Helter Skelter - The Beatles

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!

25 The Forest Whispers My Name - Cradle of Filth V 1 Comment
26 Yung Rapunxel - Azealia Banks

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.

27 Haunted - Evanescence

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.

28 Iowa - Slipknot

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.

29 Frankie Teardrop - Suicide

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 - djpenquin999

30 Danse Macabre - Celtic Frost

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.

31 Volcanic Birth - Dragged Into Sunlight

Good God, this bad makes Mayhem look like Linkin Park on terms of heaviness and creepiness - SirSkeletorThe3rd

32 Slug Bait - Throbbing Gristle

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.

33 (515) - Slipknot

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 DEATH

34 Mein Teil - Rammstein

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

My nose is a communist. You don't wanna translate it from German

35 Is There Anybody Out There? - Pink Floyd
36 Blue Jay Way - The Beatles

Not THAT scary, but backwards it's pretty disturbing. But the music video can give nightmares MAYBE(Due to "Magical Mystery Boy")

37 Litanies of Satan - Diamanda Galas

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!

38 Castigation and Betrayal - Anaal Nathrakh

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.

39 I've Plummed This Whole Neighborhood - Nurse With Wound

So scary it's on here twice!

Why isn't this number one?

40 Prison Sex - Tool

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.
