In Sadness, Silence and Solitude (the entire cd) - Raison D'Etre
Hamburger Lady by Throbbing Gristle

I've heard Megaptera's music is so scary that it can send chills down the spine of the listener. I've yet to hear any myself.

Walking into a room at a Beach House with a top audio system blasting "Ted, Just Admit It" by Janes Addiction while have a great acid trip. Then in an instant I was the literal Deer in Head Lights. I think the hearing Ted Bundy and Janes's combined with their lyrics and musical attack resulted in a memorable malox moment.

Sounds a lot like "Intruder" by Peter Gabriel. A lyric to lyric presentation of who is waiting for you in the dark, when the phone lines have been cut. A bit off putting in these days of home invasions and restraining orders.

Mark Twain........."(She's) Having My Baby" is by Paul Anka, not Neil Diamond.

I haven't listened to them but I heard from others that the Handsome Family has some freaky lyrics.

M. Vreeland: Have you heard Shatner do "Mr. Tambourine Man"? The end of the song where his voice trails off while he desperately calls the tambourine man is absolutely hysterical! Mr. Tambourine Maaaannnnn!!

Neil Young- "Danger Bird" off the Zuma LP. This ones got the spook.
Honorable mention, Fleetwood Mac"s- "The Green Manalishi (with the two-horned prong)". Peter Green narrates his own descent into madness.

* "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus has always done it for me, ever since the first time I watched the opening scene of "The Hunger." I put it on a loop every Halloween and play it for hours. Now my son loves it too.

* The one-two punch of Under Ice and Waking the Witch on Kate Bush's Hounds of Love still kinda freaks me out after all these years.

* Tori Amos' cover of '97 Bonnie & Clyde is an absolute creepfest. I think I had to turn it off 1/2-way through the first time I played it. Still gives me chills.

* Ani DiFranco's spoken-word "paramenters" makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up

And just for the "general creepiness" factor, I'd have to agree with a few other posters and throw in most of Nick Cave's Murder Ballads, as well as some of the spoken-word portions of some of Jim Morrison's stuff. I think I might give an honorary mention to Peter Gabriel's Intruder ... that and a lot of the rest of the stuff on that album had a creepy edge to it.

I can name a few, two that come to mind are "White Trash Heroes" by Archers of Loaf and "Something in the Way" by Nirvana

Bela Lugosi's Dead - Bauhaus, the beginning of the Hunger (lesbian vampires, does it get any better than that? and D. Bowie) is basically a video for it before MTV was a hit.

How about Halloween from Ministry?

Was He Ever Alive by Swans is real creepy without getting heavy but for heavy tracks I'd have to go with Melt (The Catching Of The Butterfly) by The Nephilim - try listening to that one out in the middle of nowhere - in the dark.

"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath (1970) The first couple minutes has you just sitting there in total silence.

"Faaip De Oiad" by Tool (2001) Not really song, but has a bunch of static with some guy talking about Area 51 over the phone.

"Footloose" by Kenny Loggins (1984) They were all dancing, and their legs all fell off. LOL

"No Quarter" by Led Zeppelin. It's spooky without trying to be, which adds to the spookiness and awesomness.
