* At the very end of Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/{{Pixar}}'s ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', we watch through the end credits of the film with cute animations of the passengers and crew of the Axiom landing back on earth and re-civilizing and replenishing the earth's environment, followed by more animations of Wall-e and Eve playing around the scrolling credits with M-O while all being accompanied by Peter Gabriel's gentle and understated "Down to Earth". However, following the obligatory Disney and Pixar end-film logos (complete with [[LogoJoke Luxo Jr.'s light going out, Wall-E replacing it, the "R" in "PIXAR" falling down and Wall-E coming over to replace the "R"]]), just before the film ends, from out of nowhere we are suddenly greeted by a jarring Buy n Large {{Vanity Plate}} accompanied by the company's "BEEE-ENNN-EEELLLLL!!!!!" chant that accompanies every Buy n Large advertisement featured within the film's setting. Where as it might not seem like much, the fact that such a company logo that represents a fictional Mega-cooperation within the film's own setting can just appear up alongside the logos of the actual companies that helped create the film's own setting--particularly after such soft-running credit music--is not only unexpected, but given the facts within this film that this Mega-cooperation essentially contributed to the mass-pollution and sub-sequent decline of the earth's livable environment--which sets up the film's premise about a lonely robot on earth still gathering up garbage while the humans in the Axiom starships are watched over by an [[{{AIIsACrapshoot}} extraordinarily reliant]] [[{{Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey}} on-board ship A.I.]]--this logo with it's upbeat chant becomes terrifying in its own right in that it indicates that Buy n Large is still in business and [[{{Slogans}} providing everything all the time.]] Whether this is true in-universe or in real life is not known.

So you're listening to a nice, pleasant song about [[TastesLikeDiabetes bunnies and rainbows]] and [[RomanticRain running in the rain with your best girl by your side]]. Then the final note of the song falls and, instead of a nice soft resolution, it's a heavily played {{Sting}} note in a minor ScareChord. Then the music fades into a series of dissonant arpeggios with a creepy mechanical voice muttering some nonsensical gibberish that sounds like Satan reciting an Creator/EdgarAllanPoe story. It's surely not the ending you expected this particular song to have -- and if you happen to be ''really'' unlucky, it'll [[EarWorm burrow into your mind playing itself over and over]] like some self-regenerating NightmareFuel. Musicians most likely put these kinds of stingers at the ends of their songs to make them memorable.

* Invoked in the first book of ''Literature/TheShipWho'', ''The Ship Who Sang.'' The protagonist, a sentient "brain ship," is captured and [[ItMakesSenseInContext forced to sing by her captors]]. She sings the song fairly normally, then makes the last note of the song "pure sonic hell," knocking out many of her captors and even ''killing'' some of them in the process. LastNoteNightmare indeed...

* 'American by Music/ThatPoppy ends with her singing the title over and over, each time getting more distorted. If listen close enough you can some , oo. After that, it ends normally with an echo.

to:

* 'American "American Kids" by Music/ThatPoppy ends with her singing the title over and over, each time getting [[SensoryAbuse more distorted. distorted.]] If you listen close enough you can hear some , oo. [[OminousLatinChanting ominous chanting,]] too. After that, [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment it ends normally with an echo.]]


Added DiffLines:

* "Goodnite, Dr. Death" by Music/MyChemicalRomance is truly horrifying. The majority of the song is normal enough- it's just the national anthem, but something feels slightly off about it. Then, on the last note of the song, it gets [[SensoryAbuse super loud and distorted,]] and even more jarring is that 'Vampire Money,' an upbeat TakeThat song, [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment is right after it.]]
* Music/TheAllAmericanRejects song "Dirty Little Secret" is an upbeat pop punk song, but it ends with a stretched-out guitar note that gets more sour-sounding the more it goes on, until it just dies.
** "Sk8er Boi" by Music/AvrilLavigne ends similarly, but UpToEleven, making you really wonder- why did it end like that? [[NightMareFuel What happened to the main characters to make it sound like that?]]


Added DiffLines:

** "Snow (Hey Oh)" ends in a similar way, but the last guitar notes slowly becoming more and more rough, screechy, and off-key sounding.


Added DiffLines:

* "Reason to Believe" by Music/Sum41 has a nightmarish beginning, with unsettling-sounding synths and eerie whisper-singing, until it finally builds up to some guitar riffs. "Back Where I Belong" BookEnds with this, but to an even more unsettling extent.

**Then Kirby Planet Robobot comes along and introduces a horrible clanking and screeching noise at the beginning and end of a loop of the the same song from Kirby 64

* A weird, fairly {{Downplayed}} example is [[WordPureeTitle z30huri2ba0tt12le1110]] from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX''. [[NightmareFuel It's an utterly terrifying, loud, unpleasant song]] that violently abuses ScareChords throughout, but by far the part of it that's ''strangest'' is the ending, where it very abruptly goes from creepy orchestra to [[NothingIsScarier near-silence]] [[https://youtu.be/MS-oMrE0_DQ?t=2m40s and some strange clicking noise.]]

* {{IOSYS}}'s (the fellows who brought you Marisa Stole The Precious Thing) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ia38dvaZuQ "Blue Cirno"]] is an extremely jovial song that sounds like a mix of upbeat Latin music and happy Christmas music. That is, until it ends off with a Last Note Nightmare that makes people think their souls are being sucked out.

** ''"Bewildering Impending Spiriting Away ~ Border of Death"'' is not frightening, right? Now, get that stereo headphones or earplugs. Can you hear ''Her'' singing behind you? [[{{IOSYS}} Guess who made this remix.]]
