Best Songs About Hell

Hell can be a fiery underworld inferno, a place of eternal torment, the home of Satan, Hades, or a Katy Perry concert. But it can also be used to express one’s own personal torment, express anger and disbelief or to describe the extreme attractiveness of another person.

But the word “hell” can have so many different meanings as you’ll see from the satanic selections on this list. Check out the Top 10 Songs About Hell below:

The Top Ten

1 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

I definitely agree with this at #1! Tony riff and Dio vocals and lyrics are exemplary. - Metal_Treasure

What @Metal_Treasure said, I agree - Catacorn

So, earlier today, I was on the Most Overrated Bands List, and I clicked on Sabbath on accident. For some reason, it wouldn’t let me type against it, so I just pressed the No Reply button. Big mistake. I love Black Sabbath. Ronnie James Dio is the best! And this song is, too. My favorite song of the era was Lonely is the Word. Long Live Black Sabbath!

2 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Great song, great vocals. - Catacorn

Bon scott died one year later of this song.that stuff makes me think did he really wanted to go to hell,was he depressed. - zxm

3 I Am Hell - Machine Head
4 Welcome to Hell - Venom

Infernal wisdom shall fill my soul
Slowly now the days departing
The darkened air releases me
Frightening visions of my journey" - Metal_Treasure
