* Sweet dreams, kids! Here's the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MBaEEODzU0 "Window Licker"]] video!
** Bennett the Sage was so creeped out by the video that he placed it at #1 on his list of the Top 10 WTF Music Videos:
-->Hey, wanna never sleep again? ''Too late!''

* ''[[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=5Az_7U0-cK0 Come to Daddy]]'' -- elderly lady is harassed by children, each one of their faces replaced by the identical grinning visage of Richard D. James, whilst a distorted face on a TV howls about how he wants your soul. It gets worse from then on in.
** Once described by [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave]] [[Music/FooFighters Grohl]] as "the most terrifying music video ever."

What's even more creepy about it it, beyond it giving off this overwhelming sense of dread and paranoia is paranoia, is that its title is Cornish for 'death bed'.

-->'''"[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Woah, finally a song that captures the mood of trying to brush dust into a dustpan but there's always that fucking line of dust that you can't get in, it gets smaller and smaller but never goes away. I will play this song next time I need to dust with a dust pan.]]"'''
** Many of the tracks are quite akin to something out of VideoGame/SilentHill. Case in point, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBU3uAzRejs "Grass"]].

* "White Blur 1", an unsettling haphazard mishmash of bell noises, creepy rumbling, and reverberating vocal samples. It's like the last 40 or so seconds of [[Music/{{Radiohead}} "Climbing Up the Walls"]], except extended to 3 minutes. (And thank God it's only 3 minutes as opposed to the usual 5-8.)
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5Zsn6tJ2MY "Window Sill"]] somehow manages to be the musical equivalent of UncannyValley, being subtly-off and unnerving.

* ** "White Blur 2" is even worse, consisting of nothing but a looped psychedelic riff interspersed by a creepy distorted laugh and occasional muted whispers, it keeps going like this for 11 minutes. You could've stuck it in a YumeNikki level and nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Music/AphexTwin: [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible Strange]], [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic brilliant]], and a master of ''[[NightmareFuel scaring the hell out of people]]''.

** Those same smiling kids are depicted on the song's single cover, although some of the fear is alleviated once you see [[FunnyBackgroundEvent the kid on the far left doing part of the Bloods gang sign]].



** Not to mention the song itself contains a ''[[CarefulWithThatAxe 34-second long anguished scream from the very depths of Hell]]''. The kicker? ''[[HellIsThatNoise Richard D. James himself is most likely the source of that scream]]''. God have mercy.
*** In fact the demon serves as the inspiration for [[Manga/SoulEater Asura]].

* Run "Equation" through a spectogram. Sweet Dreams....
* The aforementioned hideously ugly woman from Chris Cunningham's music video of Windowlicker. Her face is actually based on a sketch by Creator/HRGiger, which, you guessed it, is called ''The Windowlickers''.
* White Blur 1.

* Run "Equation" has a portrait of Richard's face near the end that can only be seen if the song is put through a spectogram. Sweet Dreams....
