Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Faaip de Oiad - Tool

The pure emotion on this track is just frightening.

142 Timothy - The Buoys Timothy - The Buoys

Three men are trapped in coal mine cave-in.
Two of them KILL and EAT the third one, in order to survive, then hide what's left of the body and say nothing about him ever being there when they are finally rescued.
Pretty scary.

"Timothy, Timothy,
Joe was looking at you,
Timothy, Timothy,
God what did we do? "

147 Disfigured - Cannibal Corpse Disfigured - Cannibal Corpse
148 Exorcist - Possessed Exorcist - Possessed

This song deserves to be way higher on the list. It is a masterpiece from the very first Death Metal band ever.

150 The Reflecting God - Marilyn Manson The Reflecting God - Marilyn Manson
151 Counting Bodies like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums - A Perfect Circle Counting Bodies like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums - A Perfect Circle

The almost constant drumming really does remind you of war drums, while the distant screaming cements the impression that this song could have been recorded in the middle of a devastating battle, with no hope of victory for either side. The muffled sounds of what could be a family argument, repeated screams of pain, moaning (? ), what could be the buzzing of flies, the disturbing lyrics (which are adapted from their other equally creepy but not quite as scary song, 'Pet') and the singer's demands for you TO "GO TO SLEEP" make this song sound like the soundtrack to death and decay itself.

152 Freezing Moon - Mayhem 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
