Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Exorcist - Possessed

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

162 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold V 1 Comment
163 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

How is this song scary? It's pretty sad (sad in a peaceful way) in my opinion.

It's scary when it is reversed.

It's probably on here because of some butthurt Young Money fan.

164 The Reflecting God - Marilyn Manson
165 Kill You - Eminem
166 Fack - Eminem

This has got to be higher on the list! what a disturbing story!

167 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.

168 Pretty - Korn

Read the story behind this song and you'll wonder why it isn't #2 next to Daddy.(I love Korn)

This song is very disturbing and sad, but I love korn and this song so...

169 Death, Pierce Me - Silencer
170 Animals - Maroon 5 V 1 Comment
171 Morning Bell - Radiohead
172 Ancient Queen - Emperor

The lyrics not scary but the quality production makes this song sound spoopy - countnightdark13

173 Man-Size Sextet - PJ Harvey
174 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

His voice just sends chills down your spine, totally creepy. The lyrics too

175 Bastard - Tyler the Creator

Pressing hard on the pianos,sudden jerks of violin...

176 93 Ave. B Blues / Little Mouth - Swans
177 Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift
178 Sippy Cup - Melanie Martinez
179 Love Rollercoaster - Ohio Players

This song is terrifying due to a certain sound in the background...a sound of a terrorized scream. It's hidden, but many people have heard it.

180 Reek of Putrefaction - Carcass

How the hell is this only number 636? The beginning sounds like the Psycho theme song and the growls Jeff lets out are so creepy and disgusting that they made my blood curdle. This should at least be number 20. - Aragorn98
