The Contenders: Page 4

61 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold 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

62 Dies Irae - Devil Doll

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

63 Eyeless - Slipknot 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.

64 House of 1000 Corpses - Rob Zombie 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

65 In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans

You must hear this creepy song. It is all about armageddon to judgement day and how the human can survive if the year 2525 is just near...

66 Night on Bald Mountain - Modest Mussorgsky Night on Bald Mountain - Modest Mussorgsky
67 My Time, My Reign, My Tyranny - The Axis of Perdition
68 Echoes - Pink Floyd Echoes - Pink Floyd

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

Scariest tones! No competition, truly scary song

69 Jeremy - Pearl Jam 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 Hey Daddy - Korn
71 Revelation No. 9 - Marilyn Manson Revelation No. 9 - Marilyn Manson
72 The Masque of Red Death - André Caplet
73 Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada
74 Maxwell's Silver Hammer - The Beatles 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

75 Fire On High - Electric Light Orchestra 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)

76 Pornography - The Cure Pornography - The Cure

Something you'd hear in your nightmares.
