  1. They sort of gave Silent Hill an honorable mention but I still think no
    horror music compare to the stuff Akira Yamaoka writes.

  2. If you say all 4 words fast without a tongue twister, then you sir are a

    1. Eye
    2. Yam
    3. Stew
    4. Peed

  3. Jesus Fucking Christ. Did you guys forget what scary meant?! Some of these
    were epic, some were intense, some were soothing, some were stupid, and one
    was only heard in 1990’s Japan so it wasn’t scary until the internet made
    it available mid-late 2000’s. but once again the honorable mentions were
    the better ones.Want a good horrifying song? Bitores Mendez and Echo in the
    Night, from RE4. not a fanboy, but those two are fucking terrifying

  4. Seriously, no mention of either “Undead” or “Ready For Combat” from
    Conker’s Bad Fur Day? The former actually makes the laughter of CHILDREN
    sound creepy as you try to blast the heads off zombies, and the latter just
    adds so much tension as you storm the Tediz base.
