37. Throbbing Gristle - Hamburger Lady (1978)

With Halloween coming up, I thought that over the next 3 days I would post some songs that either remind me of Halloween, or in today's case just scare me to death. Throbbing Gristle have made a long career out of making frightening, industrial music such as this. However, this song about a burn victim (nice description of her, isn't it?) is quite possibly the most terrifying piece of music I've ever heard. With it's car engine revving, and the detached, chopped up vocals recounting the story of the woman's burning.....this is musical terror in it's purest form. Also, try to avoid watching videos accompanying this song.
