    Or at least, the most disturbing use of sound by a recording artist you've ever heard.  Let's see if you can beat me at my own game!  My pick is Throbbing Gristle's "Slug Bait - ICA", recorded in October 1976.  You can listen to it here, if you dare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl0mnmZzY9s

    I'm looking forward to your submissions!

      Type O Negative has an instrumental song called Machine Screw that makes my hair stand on end.

      Can't think of any that disturbing but the song 'BLACK SABBATH' by Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill was pretty creepy

    Once upon a time there was a tavern
    Where we used to raise a glass or two
    Remember how we laughed away the hours
    And think of all the great things we would do

    Those were the days, my friend
    We thought they'd never end
    We'd sing and dance forever and a day
    We'd live the life we choose
    We'd fight and never lose
    For we were young and sure to have our way

    Then the busy years went rushing by us
    We lost our starry notions on the way
    If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
    We'd smile at one another and we'd say

    Those were the days, my friend
    We thought they'd never end
    We'd sing and dance forever and a day
    We'd live the life we choose
    We'd fight and never lose
    Those were the days
    Oh, yes, those were the days

    Those were the days, my friend
    We thought they'd never end
    We'd sing and dance forever and a day
    We'd live the life we choose
    We'd fight and never lose
    Those were the days
    Oh, yes, those were the days

    Through the door there came familiar laughter
    I saw your face and heard you call my name
    Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser
    For in our hearts the dreams are still the same...

    Those were the days, my friend
    We thought they'd never end
    We'd sing and dance forever and a day
    We'd live the life we choose
    We'd fight and never lose
    Those were the days
    Oh, yes, those were the days



    Mary Hopkin
    Those Were The Days, My Friend lyrics (note: I edited them for the purposes of this thread)

    Not really that disturbing, but it's what came to my mind.

    Nothing really compares to Slug Bait. Personally, I always found the music video Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson pretty disturbing, but not too disturbing- mostly because of how much he resembles Pee Wee Herman. But hey, it's the best I got. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ypkv0HeUvTc

    If I sense "disturbing" might be showing up in a song I don't listen.  It keeps me from being unnecessarily disturbed.    smile  There's a couple of non-disturbing songs that I find disturbing for personal reasons.  I stay away from them too.   smile

    I can't think of any songs in particular but any song with lots of screaming in it is quite disturbing to me.

    I can probably think of lots of others but this is one I find particularly irritating.

    Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights.

    Yellow Submarine.

    I've never liked the song and thought it was completely ridiculous(disturbing) that anyone would write the song to begin with.
