Scariest Songs Ever Written


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Kill You - Eminem
162 Fack - Eminem

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

163 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.

164 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...

165 Death, Pierce Me - Silencer
166 Animals - Maroon 5 V 1 Comment
167 Morning Bell - Radiohead
168 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden V 2 Comments
169 Ancient Queen - Emperor

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

170 Man-Size Sextet - PJ Harvey
171 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

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

172 Bastard - Tyler the Creator

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

173 Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift
174 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.

175 Teletubbies Say Eh Oh! - The Teletubbies
176 Just the Two of Us - Eminem

The original version of 97 Bonnie and Clyde with a scarier background. It's about Shady going to the lake to dispose of his wife's body, who's In his cars trunk dead with a slit throat. - JackFrost

177 Stan - Eminem

I wouldn't say this is Eminem's scariest song never mind the scariest song. This is just a brilliant story, the scariest song in my opinion is Kim where he just shouts at his wife then kills her (in the song obviously). It could give someone nightmares.

A song about a crazed fan who kills his family and then himself... or at least thats how I envision it. -

I don't know why his scariest song "Kim" is at the bottom of the list, but I think "Stan is also one. It has a great storyline, scasry lyrics and a very nice beat...

178 One - Metallica

The horrors of war are told as a vet who was blown to smitherines but lived screams for help, death, and both. -

179 These are Our Children - I Monster

Little kids just creep me out plain and simple. Plus the mood created by the music doesn't help at all. Oh and I forgot the eerie chorus. - fireinside96

180 Thriller - Michael Jackson

With this one Michael proved that he can scare anyone especially all the music critics, who with all might tried to contain him.. Unfortunately its Michael Jackson and you cannot hold him back

over 110 million people got scared (cos they bought them), LOL! and 8 millon downloads xD - alexanderalbert

Best horror song ever
