* Here's a 1997 recording of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mn6HSNHzYZU a distraught man calling Art Bell's program]] to describe things he discovered or was told while working for {{Area51}}. Two minutes into the call, listen to the silence. No radio program theatrically fakes dead air for nineteen seconds (the silence following the Grover's Mill massacre in Orson Welles' ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' was only four or five seconds long). There's controversy whether this was real or not, but in either case, the terror in that man's voice is enough to turn your bones to ice, especially late at night.

** Even certain trope names could sound wrong to some people. GoMadFromTheRevelation in particular sounds like a demented advertising slogan.

* A [[https://archive.org/details/ptc1978-11-18.flac16 surviving audio recording of the People's Temple Jonestown mass suicide in 1978.]] Transcript [[http://employees.oneonta.edu/downinll/mass_suicide.htm here]] for those too squeamish to listen, though reading it isn't much better. Partway into the audio, the mic begins picking up the sounds of people crying... [[TearJerker most of them children]].

** The tape is mostly disturbing in the "Implied Horror" sense. Apart from the screaming and crying children in the background, it isn't disturbing in the way a recording of a brutal rape, torture session or a slow beheading would be (it's mostly a lot of talking, debating, applause and speeches) but it's the fact that you are aware that people are in the process of lining up and drinking the poison. After Jones' final line, there is just dead silence (apart from weird "music" which is actually [[http://jonestown.sdsu.edu/?page_id=30349 a tape artifact]] and it sounds creepy as hell!) and it THEN really hits you....They're all dead!

* Apple iMacs are prone to scaring the life out of their users when it comes to unexplained crashes or hardlocks! Take for instance the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbmx_555fcE 'three beeps']], which blare from the speakers at full, unchangeable volume after a RAM fault. Not to mention [[HellIsThatNoise intensely loud crashes]] that just [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MB0k4hmSeL8 happen]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLX2teQiaw8 spontaneously]]...

* TheHistoryChannel documentary "Last Days on Earth", detailing the eight most likely ways for civilization as we know it to be completely destroyed, ''in increasing order of likeliness.''
* TheHistoryChannel ''Series/LifeAfterPeople'' series. While it's fascinating, the fact that this could happen at some point in time or another is pretty horrifying.

** Don't forget the early [[AppleMacintosh Macintosh's]] equivalent, the Sad Mac. If your system disk was corrupted, or if you hit the interrupt switch, instead of a smiling Macintosh icon on a warm gray background, you'd get one that looked as if it was dead from a stroke on a stark black background with nothing else but some weird HEX code, and you'd hear the "Hawaiian Death Chimes". "Doo do da dooo! Da doooo doooo..." * shiver*

** Fortunately averted with the Blue Screen of Death in Windows Server 2012 Windows 8, and Windows 10. This version of the [=BSoD=] uses a less-harsh cerulean background, the text basically sounds like it's saying "we're sorry," and has a sad ":(" emoticon on top.[[note]] Though it sometimes still makes a loud droning noise when this happens if the user has audio playing while their PC crashes. If you have headphones/earbuds on, it can make for a mini JumpScare.[[/note]]
