* Coheed's "Welcome Home" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycMNBgoWPZg video]] qualifies. And "Blood Red Summer" too, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvH-70bY2C8 thinking about it.]]

* "Three Evils" has what is probably the most disturbing EarWorm ever. "Pull the trigger and the nightmare stops, pull the trigger and the nightmare stops..."

* The "passage of time" melody that appears throughout the band's albums (best known as "The Ring in Return, though that isn't the first appearance of said melody). It's creepy, dark and mysterious; the first time we hear it, it's a terrible-quality grainy piano recording, and the second time, it's thankfully in a much less nightmarish orchestral version. The next time we hear it, it's in a spooky glockenspiel recording with creaking noises in the background. We hear it once more in a sorrowful string version.

* As if "Everything Evil" wasn't bad enough, we get "21:13", which is basically the events of said song but from a different point of view. The fact that it's a hidden track makes both the lyrics and the MoodWhiplash nature of the music even worse.

Added DiffLines:

* "Al the Killer", full stop. He's a serial killer and he has a type in blonde white women. The comics take it to the next level by showing his victims hanging naked by meat hooks in a freezer on his ship.


* Much by Coheed qualifies as nightmare fuel, what with the lyrics about murder and all. Even if it is in the context of an epic science fiction story.

* "Everything Evil" is just... ugh. Most of the song has a tense feel, mostly lending to its simple instrumentation and extremely intense atmosphere. Thankfully the song changes key near the end to ease up (some of the tension), but even then, the lyrics get in the way: about two parents forced to kill their children, one of whom was gang-raped. The original version is bad enough, but the version on the re-issue is worse- a door-creak is heard at the beginning, and at the end, a creepy piano melody is heard.

Added DiffLines:

** The lyrics themselves are so disturbing that Equal vision made the band issue a disclaimer in the lyrics booklet stating that the lyrics are in the context of the story and not meant to be taken seriously.


* Claudio also made a quite graphic Willing Well IV: The Final Cut[[hottip:* :(which is, in itself, pretty creepy: ''"You're a selfish little whore, I'm the selfish little whore/if I had my way I'd crush your face in the door/THIS IS NO BEGINNING, THIS IS THE FINAL CUT...open up/THIS IS NO BEGINNING, THIS IS THE FINAL CUT...oh, I'm in love"'' - It's a DreamSequence where a character imagines themselve being taken to a guillotine and killed)]] video which shows himself (not in RealLife) torturing his (RealLife) girlfriend...creepy...

: Also from "Three Evils" comes the filler track that segues into "The Crowing". It contains a slow, but rather creepy buildup that goes from street-level outside a pub to down in the sewers where a soft whimpering is heard that explodes into a loud "SKREE-" sound. It's used (at least, according to fanon) whenever an Onstantine Priest is lurking around.

* "Ten Speed" doesn't have a very frightening music video, but the song itself is about a man arguing with his bicycle about killing off a fictional character based on his girlfriend. In the interlude, if you listen closely, you can hear a bit of their conversation.
