Tortured Stories Behind Electric Guitars.

Vertigo Comics

Hard rock is not a genre to be taken lightly. For as much as there have been songs centered around topics like partying and drinking, things can get pretty ugly in the lyrical department when the artist feels like it. Hell, if you're not too careful, things can go from a care free rock jam to something truly tortured.

From the way the instruments are played to the topics at hand, each of these songs have made many listeners' hairs stand up on end. For every minute of these tracks, you're kept on the edge of your seat as if the song itself has taken you in as its hostage. Coming from the early days of metal in the '70s to the gruesome tales of disgust that many shock rock bands have come out with, each of these songs have stood on their own as some of the most unsettling music to ever be produced using electric guitars.

Even with the passage of time, every one of these songs seems to get more scary by the minute, as if the tortured minds behind these tunes are still out there. These songs are a blast to listen to from start to finish, but keep watch over your shoulder from time to time.
