Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Tattered & Torn - Slipknot

This song reminds me of creepy clowns. The intro just reminds me of clowns so much. I always think of clowns when I hear this song. It's pretty creepy. The rift, the lyrics, the screams. All very creepy indeed but not a creepy as Iowa - SirSkeletorThe3rd

According to the band, whoever understands this song's meaning understands "the Clown". Acording to Shawn "Clown" Crahan himself the clown represents a lot of thing, among them is his death. God Damn!

42 Kill or Become - Cannibal Corpse V 1 Comment
43 Cupcakes - Futret
44 Kill You - Korn

This song is similar to Daddy but with a different plot. Jon also cries at the end of this song as well. Very dark.

Actually it was Jon's stepmother who treated him badly, so he wrote this song about wanting to kill her.

Based on how Jon's mother used to mistreat him so badly. He wrote a song about wanting to kill her.

45 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

46 Polly - Nirvana

I didn't find the song itself to be scary, but the lyrics and meaning behind it is terrifying. - Gruunge

47 Murder Worship - Cannibal Corpse
48 Every Breath You Take - The Police

A song that's not about love. But about a stalker. I mean... Every Breath you take. Every move you make. Every bond you break. Every smile you fake, I'll be watching you.

And how did I get here from searching John Deacon, anyway? :-S

Slendermans song play this while watching slender

49 Fritter (Stella's Home) - Skinny Puppy
50 Pieces of Quiet - Khanate
51 Sober - Tool

Let me explain. Out of all of Tool's songs this one on this list? What about songs like Vicarious? This song is about a lame, quiet man (a friend of the band) who is only exciting and can only strike up a a good conversation while he is either drunk or high. 'Jesus won't you try and whistle' meaning "God this guy is boring"

52 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) - Marilyn Manson

It creepy it talk about what bad people would do to a desisper person

This song IS creepy

Don't get me wrong people. I love this song! I think it's awesome. It's just that I find it kinda unsettling. How the creepy music's playing and how the lyrics are "some of them want to abuse you, some of them want to be abused."

53 My Name Is - Eminem

This is not scary whoever voted for this y did u vote for this


54 The Trial - Pink Floyd

The song is about drugs and how its all breaking and he has a hallucination

One of the best songs on The Wall

Flippin' Terrified me when I was a kid.

55 Pain - Hollywood Undead V 1 Comment
56 On the Run - Pink Floyd

The song is about a guy (David Gilmoure) missing his plane ride and the laugh is someone laughing is because he missed the plane and in the end the plane explodes.

God this song scares me. The scream gets me every time. Its acualy a lesson about how you shouldn't rush life. Great song. I had a hard time choosing between this and revolution 9. And no quarter is not that scary. Its kind of cool in my opinion.

That effin scream, high pitched wail, and laugh just freaks me out! -

57 Several Odd Moments Prior to Lunch - Nurse with Wound

NuRse wItH WoUnd is one of the creepiest things I've heard of in my entire life! Avant-Garde noise is definitely not for everyone!

58 Necrophobic - Slayer
59 The Downward Spiral - Nine Inch Nails

I think getting into his mind during the making of this album would be a bit frightening. Don't look so much at the lyrics themselves but where it is coming from. That makes this top of the list for me. I have most of Trent's work on cd but this one is a bit different - Johnnyt800

So much blood for such a tiny little hole.

The freaky sound effects, the weird musical notes and scales, the lyrics, the screaming, the somewhat lo-fi and unusual sound quality, the overall backstory.

60 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

The beginning is creepy with that piano, but the rest of the song is just your average Avenged Sevenfold rock song - Tylerlangford1234

Not creepy the beginning a bit but then it's just an awesome rock song

I would love to have this song playing in my nightmare! - Metalmaniakkk

Seriously? This song isn't scary at all! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan
