** "Faaip de Oiad" ('Voice of God', in Enochian) is the 'last note' of ''Music/{{Lateralus}}'', consisting of mad, inspired drumming and airplane-like drones overlaid by a sample of a caller to ''Radio/CoastToCoastAM''. He's panicked, and describes things, hints and rumors, he's discovered while working at an Air Force base near Groom Lake, Nevada (Area 51). If you do your homework, you might find out that it's (most likely) a hoax, but before you do, or if you doubt the hoax story, the fear in the man's voice is genuinely terrifying.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' {{Filk}} musician [voodoopony] has two of these, which are especially jarring given how relaxing his music usually is:
** [[http://voodoopony.bandcamp.com/track/flight-of-the-wonderbolts "Flight of the Wonderbolts]] ends with a bizarre, loud noise after the main song has fully faded out.
** [[http://voodoopony.bandcamp.com/track/respect-list "Respect List"]] doesn't have a scary ending, it ''is'' the scary ending to the album [[http://voodoopony.bandcamp.com/album/pincushion "Pincushion"]]. You're just listening to [[http://voodoopony.bandcamp.com/track/dreams-of-an-earth-pony-ft-ibringdalulz "Dreams of an Earth Pony (ft. iBringDaLulz)"]], chilling out, the song ends and suddenly a loud distorted voice lists [voodoopony]'s favorite ''My Little Pony'' Filk musicians and tells you to respect them.

* The 1981 album ''Claro que si'' by the band Music/{{Yello}} featured a hypnotizing instrumental track "Take It All". At the end, while the song was slowly fading away, a strange noise was growing in the background, kind of a nonsensical robot rambling, really creepy as if a weird and unpredictable robot was closing on to the listener. This immediately segued into the next song, "The Evening's Young", with the robot voice still around. A few second into the song, the robot voice started coughing and shut up.

** And of course this is inverted with "A Hard Day's Night," which is the first song on the entire album ''Music/AHardDaysNight'' and kicks off with an in-your-face, dissonant Dm7add11 chord on the guitar.

* "Jeremy" by Music/PearlJam from ''{{Music/Ten}}'' takes a twist after the final chorus, with a series of slow, agonizing(and depressing) vocal phrases, made even scarier by the "spoke in, spoke in" background vocals, ending with an abrupt scream, after which the song winds down with a tired "uh huh" vocal section, finally fading to melancholy acoustic guitar. This is supposed to symbolize Jeremy's descent to insanity and death.

* Would you believe "Wonderwall" by Music/{{Oasis}}? After the vocals are done, the song segues into a beautiful lush strings-and-piano piece and ends with a few acoustic guitar chords with birds chirping in the background. But between these two pleasant interludes, the piano fades, leaving the violin and bass viol to hold one last note. And then even the bass stops, leaving a single violin note which gets less and less melodic until it finally climaxes with a hideous, almost voice-like "BLLLLLEEEEEAAAAAGGHHHH" sound. If you're not expecting it, it's a real Penultimate Note Nightmare.

* In ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', Eddie falls asleep while preparing for a stage battle and dreams of sharing romantic moments with his LoveInterest Ophelia (read: [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments skipping down a beach together holding hands while slaughtering Tainted Coil demons]]), set to the suitably romantic "Holiday" by Music/{{Scorpions}}. As the dream ends and Eddie wakes up, the music transitions into a particularly [[MetalScream screamy]] part of "So Frail" by Mirrorthrone, which becomes the background music during the stage battle against [[spoiler:Drowned Ophelia]].

* The Music/{{Weezer}} song "Undone - The Sweater Song" eventually ends on an extremely unsettling clash of noises reminiscent of someone mashing the keys on the far left and right sides of a piano.

* The first ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie has the hip hop song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ua7Xa-Krj4 T-U-R-T-L-E Power]]" which for the most part is a pretty steady-paced dance number... and then the last "Power" hits in the song and a very chilling, nails-on-the-chalkboard echo follows it (it's even louder in the end credit version compared to the one on the soundtrack).

Added DiffLines:

* "Where You'll Find Me Now" by Neutral Milk Hotel ends with a distorted, mangled sample of carnival music.
** The eerie tape loops at the end of "Communist Daughter".
** "Sailing Through", where Jeff Mangum's voice gets louder and more strained until he's basically shrieking.

Added DiffLines:

* During the recording of Death Cab for Cutie's "Pity and Fear", the tape machine the band was using broke, resulting in the song suddenly getting louder and then cutting off.
* "Your Algebra" by The Shins is already a pretty ominous song, but it ends with some strange rustling noises and clips of children laughing which lasts for about 40 seconds. It's....unsettling.

* In "Luxury" by The Wrens, the music cuts out mid-note near the end and is replaced by a 30 second rumbling drone.
