The Top 5 Scariest Songs of All Time

Halloween is quickly approaching. It is the time of year where ghouls, ghosts, and goblins come out to play and where scaring the living daylights out of yourself is the norm. Scares can come in all different ways. A scary movie, forgetting where you placed something valuable, that floating ball of light that keeps following you around, closing the bathroom medicine cabinet mirror and expecting an axe wielding murderer to appear behind you ready to pounce, well that last one not so much. Clearly I've been watching to many horror films. Nobody ever thinks of music as scary, however music plays with our emotions as well as any other entertainment. We are here today to give you 5 of what we believe to be the scariest songs we have ever listened to. Some of these songs may not seem scary upon first listen, but when you delve down into their message you will get creeped out, while at least 2 songs on list will give you an unnerving feeling. Anyways onto the list.

5. The Doors - "The End"

This song is an ebb and flow of creepy. It starts off with an Eastern European Riff with a tambourine keeping the beat with Jim Morrison singing about the end. The end in this case is not about death, but about a relationship ending. The song starts to get creepy after about six minutes into the song. Jim starts going into spoken word about the Oedipus complex and ends with Morrison screaming and going into a tirade of fucks and screams as the song spirals out of control.

4. Black Sabbath - "Black Sabbath"

Not only is this song creepy, but the cover work of the album is amongst the creepiest of all time. "Black Sabbath" is a song about a real life experience, Geezer Butler claims to have had. Geezer was into witchcraft and awoke one morning to see a figure in black floating around his apartment with glowing eyes. This song tells the story of that figure speaking to Butler and telling him he has been chosen by Satan.

3. Tool - "Die Eier Von Satan"

This song is very industrial. It keeps an unnerving beat through out the entire song and Maynard James Keenan speaks in what appears to be German. This is a very short song but will definitely play on your emotions.

2. Pearl Jam - "Hey Foxymophandlemama, That's Me"


Many consider this not to be a song. We however view it as a very experimental  song, but a song nonetheless. This song scares this shit out of 99/100 people who listen to it for the first time. Pearl Jam being our favorite band, we have listened to this song multiple times throughout the years and it is still as uncomfortable listening to it as the first time we did. The spoken words of this song are taken from a children's mental hospital recording session where the patient describes about how she feels love. The recording it self is creepy, but it is the random drumming and guitar feedback really adds a whole new level of creepiness to the song.

1. Suicide - "Frankie Teardrop"

I love this song for a multitude of reasons. It is by far the scariest song I have ever listened to and it inspired one of my favorite albums of all time, Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska". Everything about this song is scary. From the beat to the lyrics, it is a nonstop ride on your emotions as you become more uncomfortable as the song goes on. "Frankie Teardrop" talks about the a factory worked named Frankie Teardrop, who can no longer afford to feed his wife and child so he decides to commit murder suicide. After Frankie kills himself he descends into hell where the song goes into full on freak out mode with lots of unnerving screams. If you can make it through this song you have some balls of steel.

Enjoy these scary songs and let me know if you have any other scary songs you recommend.
