Nightmare Fuel: Neutral Milk Hotel
  • Most notably the eerie drones that end "Pree-Sisters Swallowing a Donkey's Eye", the Squickfest that is "Rubby Bulbs", and especially the climax of "Sailing Through".
  • A lot of their lyrics are just... crazy. Like this from "The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1":
    And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
    And dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
    As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for
  • IIII LOOOOOVE YOUUUU JEEEEEEEEZUUUUSSSSS CAHHHHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIST
  • The opening of "Two Headed Boy Pt. 2".
  • "Sailing Through" ends on a Careful With That Axe moment that actually made one of my friends - a hardened 4chan addict, by the way - turn white. It is utterly harrowing.
  • The first guitar strums in "Oh Comely" are innocent enough until you've heard the song through a few times. Then they become the most terrifying sounds imaginable. "I will be with you when you lose your breath," indeed.
  • All of "Pree Sisters Swallowing a Donkey's Eye." Starts out with noisy chaos, then descends slowly into Nothing Is Scarier as the instruments fade.
