- The deaths described in "A Gorey Demise" are all pretty gruesome sounding, especially this one:L is for Larry, who bled and bled
- The sheer Adult Fear associated with "Bound and Gagged". Imagine just waking up one day to find that someone has kidnapped your daughter and is threatening to kill her if you don't meet their demands, whatever those may be.
- On the subject of Nothing Is Scarier, we have the Noodle Incident from "Such Horrible Things". At first, the narrator tries to play it off as if nothing happened when he was fourteen, but the remembers that one time...
- A Feast For the Worms uses a similar idea as the Noodle Incident from Such Horrible Things except for the entire song. Nothing is explained about what the narrator did, only everyone's reactions to his death. Whatever it was, it was so bad even the Devil celebrates his death.My soul is made of rot and razor bladesPraise the day that I'm lowered in my graveRevel for the devilKnows I'm on my wayKnows I'm on my way
- "The Greatest Show Unearthed". Circus of Fear, background music that sounds like the most demonic merry-go-round ever imagined, and the random screaming. Plus, it's a totally awesome song. Freaky as fuck, but awesome.
- Mad House is about a guy with such terrible anger management issues his house becomes a bloodthirsty Genius Loci trying to kill him.
- The Ominous Music Box Tune at the beginning of "Mommy's Little Monsters," sounding like an eerie, aged wind-up doll. The childish giggling as it plays and the monster's growl at the end don't do it any favors.
- "Dr. Sawbones" begins with the sound of someone making dying gags as they're most likely getting sawed in half.
