21 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. -

Charles Manson ruined this song for me..

Hard to believe that this is a Beatles song.

WHY. IS. THIS. SONG. SO. CATCHY!

22 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.

23 Fireal - Deftones

This really isn't scary at all. There are random deftones songs where Chino would let out a high pitch scream. This is definitely one of my favorites from their debut. - Metalmaniakkk

I have to admit it is a pretty creepy song. Especially when he screams like he possessed.

So scary when a strange voice start to sing and the worst, is it that we don't know when! So creep! - Lflogomen

The scream makes me smile every time

24 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.

25 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.

26 Volcanic Birth - Dragged Into Sunlight

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

27 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.

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!

Yeah...Don't get much freakier than this to be honest.

30 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.

31 '97 Bonnie and Clyde - Eminem

It's creepy Eminem takes his daughter to the beach with his ex wife Kim's dead body in the trunk and when they get there Eminem disposes her body in the ocean and making up excuses to make sure his daughter doesn't find out that her mom is dead.

Basically the sequel to Kim. Eminem takes his daughter with him to dispose Kim's dead body into the ocean. Trying his hardest to no let his daughter know that she's dead.

Talking about rolling his wife off a bridge after killing her.
Love Eminem's music but this song, NOT one of my favorites!

Oh my god what was I listening to?! I hate Eminem so much and her dead body in the trunk 😱

32 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

33 Is There Anybody Out There? - Pink Floyd
34 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!

35 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.

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

So scary it's on here twice!

Why isn't this number one?

37 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.

38 Kill or Become - Cannibal Corpse V 1 Comment
39 Cupcakes - Futret
40 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

Not scary but terrible. Back in the real days of music we had songs like " purple haze, crazy train, paradise city, you can't touch this, all my life, closer, beautiful people, rock and roll all nite, poison, kickstart my heart, it's my life and who could forget stairway to heaven". Now we have music like "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hon? , you're a stupid hoe, if I was your boyfriend, you know what to do with that big fat butt? Wiggle, wiggle wiggle" WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MUSIC?

YES! THIS SONG IS SCARY! IT'S EXTREMELY SCARY! SERIOUSLY! I had to go through 8 days of insomnia because of this song!

This is not a song at all. It's not. It's just noise! Noise! Noise!

Not scary, just stupid
