Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 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

63 Dies Irae - Devil Doll

Not too creepy, just pretty cool. You might think you have never heard this, but trust me... you have.

64 Slave New Desart - Merzbow
65 Night on Bald Mountain - Modest Mussorgsky
66 My Time, My Reign, My Tyranny - The Axis of Perdition
67 Echoes - Pink Floyd

From like 8:00 onwards it is creepy as hell - gives me nightmares!

Scariest tones! No competition, truly scary song

Nightmare. Ooo this song's something

68 Pornography - The Cure

Something you'd hear in your nightmares.

Music straight from hell.

69 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

I wouldn't call it scary, I would say that this song is very much a tribute, and a warning, but yeah, the bit where Eddie sings "Jeremy spoke in class today" is more effective than any hardcore metal lyric. - VaticanCameos

70 Hey Daddy - Korn
71 The Masque of Red Death - André Caplet
72 Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada
73 Maxwell's Silver Hammer - The Beatles

It sounds like the family friendly version of Cannibal Corpse's Hammer Smashed Face.

A song about a maniac with a silver hammer... why the judge? Why not any werewolves or anything? -

This song is more haunting than Revolution 9, that's why this song is so good. - malamJONES

Haha this song sounds so happily but it's about a maniac. - Metalmaniakkk

74 Polly - Nirvana
75 What's the New Mary Jane - The Beatles
76 Fire on High - Electric Light Orchestra

As if "The music is reversable, but time is not... turn back, turn back, turn back" was eerie enough it had to be backmasked! -

By far the scariest opener to an album ever. (Still love it though)

77 Endless, Nameless - Nirvana
78 Mommy - Mushroomhead
79 Satan My Master - Bathory
80 The Infant Kiss - Kate Bush
