Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Murder Worship - Cannibal Corpse
42 Fritter (Stella's Home) - Skinny Puppy
43 Pieces of Quiet - Khanate
44 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"

45 The Forest Whispers My Name - Cradle of Filth V 1 Comment
46 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."

47 My Name Is - Eminem

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


48 Pain - Hollywood Undead V 1 Comment
49 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.

50 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

51 (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

52 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!

53 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!

54 Necrophobic - Slayer
55 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.

56 Eyeless - Slipknot

This song is so insane! It may not be really sad, like KoRn's "Daddy", but it's just a compilation of Corey Taylor's thoughts and screaming, really, really loud. When I listen to it, I imagine it's the inside of his mind, basically.

57 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

58 House of 1000 Corpses - Rob Zombie

This song wasn't scary but weird I never thought there was a scary son until ths top 3 songs by korn and the Beatles and Eminem but man

59 Night on Bald Mountain - Modest Mussorgsky
60 My Time, My Reign, My Tyranny - The Axis of Perdition
