** Chester Bennington's reaction to Chris Cornell's death. From singing Hallejulah at his memorial to trying to sing One More Light for him, but breaking down crying each time. It all came to a tragic end on what would have been Chris's 53rd birthday (July 20, 2017) when Chester ended his life...in almost the exact same way as his friend.

** "Like Suicide", "Blow Up the Outside World", and ''especially'' "Pretty Noose" counts as well, especially given Cornell's death was later confirmed to be a suicide by hanging. The band also covered an early 70s metal song called "Homicidal Suicidal" by the band Budgie.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHh-2T84gL8 "Half"]] from ''Superunknown'', sung by Ben Shepherd. In comparison to Chris Cornell's vocals, Shepherd's are weirdly high-pitched and warbling (he said in a post-reunion interview that he deliberately tried to sing like a little kid because it was '[[CreepyChild creepy]]'.

Added DiffLines:

** "Room A Thousand Years Wide" may qualify. Three chords, an incessant beat, and some of the most nightmarish vocal layering from Chris. The song is so hypnotic it sounds like Chinese water torture put to music. Not to mention during the end during the breakdown it sounds like the world is about to come apart.

** "Applebite" is very unsettling, due in part to its strange melody, Cornell's haunted and heavily processed vocals, and its bizarre arrangement. There is something that feels slightly ''off'' about the song.
** "4th of July" is possibly the heaviest song the band ever recorded, and it has a suffocating atmosphere throughout.



* SoBadItsGood: "Circle of Power" from ''Ultramega OK'', due to Hiro Yamamoto's hilariously awful singing.

* TearJerker: Many of the band's songs already qualified, particularly songs like "Boot Camp", "Like Suicide", "Zero Chance", and "Room a Thousand Years Wide". After Cornell's death, nearly the band's whole catalogue could count for someone; songs like "Black Hole Sun", "Blow Up the Outside World", and "Tighter & Tighter" have lines that are now extremely poignant.
