Some of my favorite bands are bands most people don’t talk about because they’re frankly creepy.
I tend to like creepy rock music — brooding, obsessive, unhinged. If you do, too, have a listen to these.
1. Queen Adreena — “Suck”
These guys define unsettling. KatieJane Garside has one of the most bizarre little-girl-sexually-hurting-several-corrupt-policemen voices you’ll ever hear.
2. Prick — “Animal”
The album this track is from has long been out of print. I bought my copy on eBay a few years ago and it’s one of the strangest “industrial” albums you’ll hear. Why? Because from this one track, you’d think you’d be buying a dark, angry, sexually charged album. Instead, it’s kind of pantomime-sounding, fun of obnoxious singing styles, fun and in some ways disturbing. No other track on the album sounds like this one.
I can’t find any video of this I can link you to, but it’s on Spotify (click the link above). If you want to be absolutely 100% money-back-guaranteed miserable by the end of a 3:30 minute song, try this. I’m pretty sure this band vanished without a trace, but this is the masterpiece on their album.
4. John Grant — “That’s the Good News”
This, from John Grant? The guy from the Czars? Yes, and he’s so good at it.
I’ll sell your grandma on the street to buy some crack
If crack is not available I’ll buy gelato
You have to take things as they come that is my motto
