Since it's October, I decided to do a community list of songs to fit this month. Feel free to leave a submission below, just try to limit your suggestion to 2 songs.

Throbbing Gristle - The Second Annual Report
68
My pick: "Slug Bait- Live At The I.C.A. London"
Injury Reserve - By the Time I Get to Phoenix
83
@Quet's pick: "Outside"

@Ryannn's pick: "Footwork In A Forest Fire"
Lingua Ignota - Caligula
@Quet's pick: "May Failure Be Your Noose"

@Quet's pick: "Day Of The Lords"
Korn - Korn
@ImplicitDoom's pick: "Daddy"
Swans - The Seer
@ClumsyDuckling's and @EraX's pick: 93 Ave. Blues

@ClumsyDuckling:
"In the context of the album, it sounds like the seer just demolished and devoured an entire city."
Diamanda Galás - The Divine Punishment
@JustSomeGuy's pick: "Deliver Me From Mine Enemies"

"That whole album fucked me up so bad when I first heard it, and that song in particular has definitely stuck with me. The atmosphere and her harrowing and completely unique vocals all make for 20 minutes of the most frightening music I've ever heard."
@andiov's and @dabzilla's pick

@andiov:
"Exceptionally disturbing if u ask me"
The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat
92
@Nathaniel_ahart's pick: "The Gift"

Danny Brown - Atrocity Exhibition
@rafae_l's pick: "White Lines"
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
@MirroredComfort, @Trafficone, and @TomBejoy's pick: "Kim"

@TomBejoy:
"Kim is one hell of a visceral experience that has eminem at his relative peak, doing a bunch of odd vocal inflections and being a story-teller rather than a rapper. Sure, it's edgy and unrealistic but it's jarringly traumatic"
$uicideboy$ - Now the Moon's Rising
@MirroredComfort's pick: "Paris"
Nina Simone - Nina Simone at Town Hall
@Cakenator's and @Hydon's pick: "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair"

clipping. - There Existed an Addiction to Blood
@BGL13's pick: "Nothing Is Safe"
Deathpile - G.R.
@TomBejoy's pick: "You Will Never Know"

"G.R. by Deathpile was something @Pickle made me listen to and it was actually funny because even though the green river killer thing is frightening it was so edgy it hurt. But the last song MADE ME GRAB MY BLANKET-"
Tyga - Fuk Wat They Talkin Bout
@TomBejoy's pick: "Stimulated"

"It's absolutely hideous that Tyga got away with something like this in the mainstream, with one, landmine of a line. People defending it was frightening, not the song itself"
Kero Kero Bonito - Bonito Recycling
@TomBejoy's pick: "Cat vs. Dog"

"I don't know if Sarah Bonito realizes how much shock horror she can generate if she steps out of character from her bubby self"
Tyler, the Creator - Goblin
@TomBejoy's pick: "Tron Cat"

"Tron Cat is also something thats so edgy it hurts, it's just awful but the instrumental is nice which makes it a tough pill to swallow"

I don’t think I’m genuinely terrified of that song anymore but starsailor (the track) by Tim Buckley did perturb me when I first heard it. As for albums, hole in the heart by ramleh really made me feel shitty for the rest of the day, mainly because of how heart-wrenching it is.

Lol @TomBejoy

Mr Self Destruct by NIN would fit the list
1w
I know I’ve picked a lot but can you also put me down under the closer of xiu xiu plays the music of twin peaks?
2w
My pick is Frankie teardrop
2w
Nice list :)
2w
I mean if we ignore enjoyability and just go for the "disturbing" criteria: Eminem "Fack" and "Insane" are worse/crazier than 95% of the songs on this list.
2w
Kero Kero Bonito - Rest Stop
Slint - Good Morning Captain
2w
I'd suggest "Hey QT" by QT, definitely creeps me out
2w
I'l suggest The Haunting Presence by Giles Corey
2w
Black is the color of my true love's hair by Patty Waters (If you're still adding to this list lol)
2w
"おれのありか" by Keiji Haino
2w

@SpeakerStrings been added, thanks for the submission
3w
@Ipercreeper no problem

If you're still taking submissions, I'd definitely say Your Ankles to Your Earlobes by The Paper Chase. Every single aspect is so dissonant and off-putting, plus that climax at the end is hellish.
3w
@Andrei i think i haven't listened to a lot of music yet, i'm slacking in terms of my taste, meaning i don't really have a submission (especially since deciding a song for this was hard). maybe someday, i might come back, but who knows? 🙁

Would like to contribute:

Kinda cheating but: I Have a Special Plan for This World - Current 93 - It's a genuinely unsettling experience of a man with an understanding of the world so cryptic and completely beyond ours.
