Written by Top 100 Arena on 2012-09-15
The creepy, the scary, and the macabre have been captured by musicians over time just as much as any other ambiance has. Horror anthems abound in music of all genres. With Halloween not far away, let’s take a look at some of these songs.

10 Cry Little Sister – Carfax Abbey

Item 10

This classic from the movie “The Lost Boys” is here covered by Carfax Abbey. The song is about the sweet pain involved in becoming and being a vampire.

9 Home by the Sea – Genesis

Item 9

In this song, a burglar steals into a home only to find himself kidnapped by ghosts for the rest of his days.

8 Phantom of the Opera – Nightwish

Item 8

This Andrew Lloyd Webber song, here covered by Finnish metal band Nightwish, is about Gaston LeRoux’s famous Opera Ghost and his hold over Christine Daae.

7 Bark at the Moon – Ozzy Ozborne

Item 7

This early metal hit is about the primal aspects of being a werewolf.

6 Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon

Item 6

The werewolf in this classic rock tune is as hip as he is murderous.

5 A Nightmare on My Street – DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

Item 5

Will Smith, in his early incarnation as The Fresh Prince, does battle with Freddy Krueger in this rap/pop song.

4 Full Moon – Sonata Arctica

Item 4

A romantic tale about a werewolf and the woman who loves him, this song warns, “run away, run away, run away!”

3 Monster Mash – Bobby “Boris” Pickett

Item 3

In this 1950s classic, all our favorite monsters get together to have a dance party. If you haven’t heard this song, you obviously live under a rock!

2 Pet Sematary – the Ramones

Item 2

The Ramones set a wonderful ambiance with this punk rock anthem that mournfully tells us, “I don’t want to live my life again.”

1 Thriller – Michael Jackson

Item 1

Let’s start out with the fact that the mini-movie video is so cool. Add even more awesome points for the use of Vincent Price as narrator. Finally, only Michael Jackson could make dancing zombies look so bitchin’ without dipping heavily into Cheeseville. This song from the album of the same name HAD to be our number one because it’s an anthem for fans of any genre.

Now that we’ve taken a look at ten of the creepiest songs ever written, cozy up to your significant other, light some candles, and watch the shadows for things that go bump in the night!
