** Just when you think "American Made" is over... '''[[MetalScream RRRAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!]]'''


Added DiffLines:

* "You Are Fragile" by Circle of Dust, already [[HellIsThatNoise]], and then it starts getting [[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand slower and slower]], until it's just a dissonant, distorted drone. If not for the remixes, this would have also been a Last ''Track'' Nightmare.

* Music/FaithNoMore's "Helpless" has sort of an ominous mood to it, but is one of their gentler songs and probably could be placed right in the middle of the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness. Near the end of the song, Mike Patton starts a [[SelfBackingVocalist self-backing vocal]] chant of "Help!" in time with the music... As the rest of the song fades out, said backing vocal keeps going on at full volume, and the song very abruptly ends with more cry of "HELP!".

Added DiffLines:

* JackOffJill's "Witch Hunt" is already pretty creepy, and then, just as she mentions [[KillItWithFire burning something]], she starts ''[[JumpScare screaming]]'' as she's being ''[[BurnTheWitch burned alive]]'', which gets raspier and raspier as she's dying. It comes out of nowhere for first-time listeners.

* EurobeatBrony's song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-07f00NnY8 Luna]] (About the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic character) is an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Eurobeat song]], but at the end, it has death metal style growled vocals over an orchestral background. The liner notes for this part are written in WebOriginal/{{Zalgo}}-fied text. However, there exists a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bn7uMwXYU9U "Dream mode"]] version without this ending.
** Talking about Pony fan music, Tarby's 20 minute epic [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1AgwPxSf3A "Something Broke: The Continuing Tale of Pinkie Pie and Ponycide"]] inspired by the torture/slasher fanfic "Cupcakes" could possibly be considered this as well. The song is divided into many parts, and it ranges from happy upbeat Yes/Rush like jams to more Nine Inch Nails-esque heavy parts over the course of it's running time, but it doesn't get startling until the very end. After what appears to be the final heavy part and when the song appears to be calming down back into the early and more easy listening prog jams, suddenly out of nowhere the singer starts shouting "Help me chase away my fears!" in a loud distorted voice, accompanied by guitar based scarechords and heavy drum bashing. This part again is abruptly cut off and goes into a psychedelic de-tuned riff before the song ends. Chances are this could startle a unknowing listener, even with the overall dark lyrics.
** Music/{{Aviators}}' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvrP79RjS58 "One Last Letter,"]] written from Twilight's point of view in a future where [[TheBadGuyWins Discord took over Equestria,]] ends with a single reverberating chime and the words "CHAOS is RISING" superimposed onto a black background in a red-tinged, blood splatter-like font.
* The last track of ChristianRock musician Michael W. Smith's album ''Go West Young Man'' is simply titled "1990." It has a single stanza of lyrics, some choral sounds, then segues into a guitar riff that abruptly cuts to silence, ending with an ominous deep whisper of ''"To be continued."'' (There's no "1990 Part 2," in case you're wondering...)

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C_HReR_McQ Don't Hug Me I'm Scared]]. You can consider the whole second half of the music video to be a collection of scary moments put together to make up one big Last Note Nightmare. First, there is a sudden switch in the animation, and there's a continuous, soul crushing long chord. It switches back to "live action" but [[spoiler:only to show the cast do art projects with human hearts, cut pies made with human organs, and painting the word "DEATH". All while playing horribly distorted music that will stick to your mind for days. After all that, you think everything goes back to normal, but the notepad with a face sings "Let's all agree to never be creative again!" right before the song surprisingly closes out on a regular Last Note Nightmare within an extended LNN. Even after the music video, it also shows credits play with ink coming out of a mouse hole while what sounds like Squidward's clarinet plays in the background]].

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 Music/{{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 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, (although they'll more than likely just scare people from listening to the song again, or cause them to listen with a finger hovering over the "change track" button during the song's final stretch.)

** Lemon Demon likes to use these to varying degrees in his music, ranging from the slightly startling (the ending to I Know Your Name, which ends on a sound clip of a fire burning, leading into the next track) to moderately creepy (the ending to Subtle Oddities, which might be considered {{narm}} when you find out what it [[Music/TheWiggles actually is]]) to just downright frightening (inverted with the beginning to Flamingo Legs, which samples the aforementioned ''Don't Laugh, I Love You'' from {{Ween}})

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi9sLkyhhlE "Spinning Wheel"]] by Blood, Sweat and Tears is a fairly mellow jazz-rock fusion song, often used as an example of the genre. However, after the lyrics end comes a Last Note Nightmare that spans a ''quarter'' of the song. The music continues repetitively, but is interrupted - twice - by some frankly demented carnival music. On the third interruption, the carnival music mixes with the "normal" music and slowly overwhelms it before grinding to a halt (at which point the band members can be heard chuckling and admitting that "That wasn't too good.") Can also lead to FridgeBrilliance if one only then realizes that the 'spinning wheel' is [[spoiler: a merry-go-round. Duh]].

* Creator/GiacomoPuccini did this in the final moments of ''Opera/MadamaButterfly''. Butterfly commits ritual suicide just as Pinkerton runs in calling her name. The final melody is the Japanese-sounding suicide theme from earlier in the play, but ends on a screaming discordant first inversion... and leaves you in suspense even as Pinkerton discovers the truth.

*** Worse still, as that sequence ends, you hear another voice say "Say yes, at least say hello" over it. TWICE.

* At the very end of Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/{{Pixar}}'s ''Film/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.

* Thy Slaughter's [[https://soundcloud.com/pcmus/bronze "Bronze"]], released on the ever-weird PC Music label. The song itself follows PC's trademark quirky bubblegum pop style, but abruptly finishes with a startling, distorted vocoded voice saying '''[[SingerNameDrop "I'M... THY SLAUGHTERRRRRR"]]'''.
