Nightmare Fuel: OFWGKTA

  • "Splatter by Tyler the Creator"; then again, the group is simply insane. Their group was also formed by 15-17 year olds?
  • Possibly worse is "Sarah" from Tyler's debut album. It seems to be about a boy who kills, cannibalizes and rapes a girl after she says no to his invitation to prom.
    • Made even sadder by this line just before he does so: "But all I really want is a kiss on the cheek, in private, not public on the streets..."
    • Not to mention all the nice sound effects in the song, including the victim screaming "Tyler!" through her gag followed by some indiscernible babbling, the sound of her apparently choking on... something...
    • And after her death, a skit in which Tyler cradles what's left of her body and croons to her "My lady... you're my lady... taste so good..." before committing suicide by cop.
  • The video for "Yonkers:" an Inaction Video in which he plays with and then eats a cockroach, vomits, has his eyes go completely black, and ultimately hangs himself on camera.
  • Also from Tyler's debut album is "Blow", another song about Tyler raping and murdering a girl. The chorus, accompanied by Tyler's alter-ego demon voice, sums it up pretty well.
    Baby, you're an angel
    How about we turn this into a fable of some sort?
    You already know you're dead
    Ironic cause your lipstick's red, of course
    I stuff you in the trunk, drunk
    Cause all I really wanna do is fuck and snort blow
  • And then we have the early material from Earl Sweatshirt, the youngest and arguably most talented member of OF, who wrote a song called "Luper" in his eponymous album. Pretty much the whole song seems to be a genuine and heartfelt Tearjerker about his depression after getting dumped, until the last verse.
    The basement is dark and
    See her face while you're eating your breakfast
    And know she's in my basement objecting to sex with
    Me, murder spree, moving on to the next bitch
    Tombstones read Rip cause it's pieces they rest in
  • The Creepy Dolls (Tyler and a woman in heavy Uncanny Valley Makeup) in Tyler's video for "Ifhy," along with the Stalker with a Crush lyrics and Domestic Abuse imagery. (Though Nightmare Retardant kicks in when Tyler's doll is suddenly run over by the actual Tyler and Hodgy and the song switches to "Jamba")
  • Wolf has "Pigs," which is done in the style of a track from Bastard or Goblin, only that it stars Samuel and stops being tongue-in-cheek early on and turns into a horrifying deconstruction with a very convincing My God, What Have I Done? coupled with a tear jerking emotional breakdown.
    Samuel: I didn't mean to hurt anybody, I'm sorry
    I wouldn't hurt a fly or consider joining the Army
    I'm hardly ever angry, Roger Rabbit framed me
    Momma I'm the same fucking kid that you made, see?
    I don't wanna go to jail, I just wanna go home
    And I want them fucking kids at school to just leave me alone
    • Also, Samuel's entrance at the end of "Rusty," when he kills Earl. Though it's hammy enough to be Black Comedy, it's still pretty disturbing.
    Samuel: Oh, SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU PUSSY! (*a gunshot is heard along with the sound of Earl hitting the floor) SAMUEL'S HERE!
  • Tyler in White-face during the video for Tamale. Crosses into Uncanny Valley.
  • Take a look at the cover of Bastard. Now, take a look at some of the individual faces.
