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 Angel of Death - Slayer
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 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

69 Ballad of Dwight Fry - Alice Cooper

This is scary and really really good

70 The Masque of Red Death - André Caplet
71 Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada
72 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

Doesn't give off a creepy vibe, but the lyrics are creepy. - Gruunge

73 Pornography - The Cure

Something you'd hear in your nightmares.

Music straight from hell.

74 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

I get a heart attack every time I hear this song.

This song is scary. Seriously.

May the lord Jesus Christ have no mercy on your soul whenever this song is played.

I think she forgot her pants

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 Mommy - Mushroomhead
78 Satan My Master - Bathory
79 The Infant Kiss - Kate Bush
80 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

You're kidding right? This song is beautiful, not scary - BlueFrostOfThunderClan
