* Cage: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-Wth7Mr1cs "Ballad of Worms"]]. The story of the gradual decline of his high school sweetheart due to terminal illness and the grief it causes him in the process. It's a constant contrast between the obvious love he still has for her and the ways her suffering compromises any joy that's worth. [[spoiler:The final gut punch comes when her very last act is to try and kiss him. She fails.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXN6lxepBQg "Among the Sleep"]] is a vivid nightmare diary. He's stuck in a stack of horrific scenarios, waking up from each one, increasingly unable to be sure if he's awake or asleep to the point where he'd sooner kill himself than not know for sure.

** Just as creepy is [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_s9g06ybpig “Sprawling Idiot Effigy”]] with the metal scratching sounds, the oppressive industrial sound and lyrics sampled from [[{{Music/Comus}} Comus’s]] “Diana.”

** ''Old'', while not quite as dark as ''XXX'', still has plenty of incredibly bleak fare. "Torture", in particular, is one of the darkest songs that he has ever made. Its lyrics describe post-traumatic stress disorder, which owed to the stuff he saw growing up. These include, but aren't limited to: a crime lord feeding a truant loanee to his pitbulls crotch first, strangers getting beaten or shot in the street, and his crack-addict uncle coming very close to frying part of his own face off. Danny mentions having to go to bed baked off his ass just so the flashbacks don't keep him from sleeping.

* Nicole Dollanganger is a young Canadian singer/songwriter; her music's defining features are her clear, sweet voice, and the dark, raw things that she tends to express using it. A list of songs of hers that feature creepy undertones would be a mile long, but the worst offenders are [[http://nicoledollanganger.bandcamp.com/track/flowers-of-flesh-and-blood "Flowers of Flesh and Blood"]] -- named for a Japanese torture porn film-- and [[http://nicoledollanganger.bandcamp.com/track/choking-games "Choking Games."]]

** ''Old'', while not quite as dark as ''XXX'', still has plenty of incredibly bleak fare. "Torture", in particular, is one of the darkest songs that he has ever made, with lyrics describing what is likely post-traumatic stress disorder derived from all the horrible things that he saw while growing up; the song tells of things like a pimp forcing a prostitute who wouldn't pay up to put peanut butter on her vagina and then letting his dogs loose, a crackhead beating a fellow addict with a hammer, a man being ambushed and shot in the head in a phone booth, his uncle attempting to smoke a crack rock from a stove burner and very nearly burning his upper lip off (which Danny apparently witnessed when he was only seven years old), and Danny mentions having to go to bed baked off his ass just to be able to sleep without being haunted by flashbacks.

** Almost all of ''Atrocity Exhibition'', given that it's a concept record about Danny's drug habits and paranoia. Even the more energetic and "party" songs have an edge of darkness to them. Highlights include the terrifyingly bouncy "Ain't It Funny" and the frantic "When It Rain" (which may sound at first listen like it's about partying, but the "rain" in question refers to bullets from gang shootings). Danny's high-pitched psycho-babble delivery doesn't help.
*** Thankfully there's some {{Nightmare Retardant}} energy to break it up, like "Really Doe" and "Pneumonia".
