Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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! -

62 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

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 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

65 The Masque of Red Death - André Caplet
66 Dawn Chorus - Boards of Canada
67 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

68 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

69 Polly - Nirvana

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

70 What's the New Mary Jane - The Beatles
71 Satan My Master - Bathory
72 Mummy Dust - Ghost
73 Schlaflied - Die Ärzte
74 Echo Side - Insane Clown Posse
75 Meltdown - Clint Mansell
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 Sterile Nails and Thunderbowels - Silencer

Man, isn't his voice just terrifying.

78 Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield

Whenever I listen to this song I feel like I've entered another world. It sounds so mysterious that it feels like it wasn't made by humans. A song that doesn't really sound all that human.

Funny thing is that this song wasn't really written for The Exorcist. Wonder what it would've been like it director William Friedkin just skipped this song for The Exorcist.

It sounds so mysterious and otherworldly that it's creepy. It's still a true masterpiece of art though. I really love it.

Exorcist, this song is TERRIFYING and you have scarred us all for life. You don't get suspense, oh no. You KNOW it's coming. You shall not sleep tonight. Farewell.

Classic horror song

79 Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz

Not that scary. The video with Clint Eastwood is much scarier - JaysTop10List

Pretty scary laugh near the end...

I voted because it's a awesome song. Not because it's scary.

Oh because of the laugh...

80 Freezing Moon - Mayhem

How is this not higher? This song was written to make people wanna kill themselves. It's an amazing song though. - Oliwally
