Just in time for Halloween...

Pandora has conducted their own researched and worked out the 10 scariest songs of all time, and luckily for us, it's stacked with Rock music.

It features the likes of Korn, Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and two songs from Tool and A Perfect Circle frontman Maynard James Keenan. Check out the full list below:

  1. Nine Inch Nails - "The Becoming"
  2. Pixies - "The Happening"
  3. Bauhaus - "Dark Entries"
  4. Joy Division - "Transmission"
  5. Lamb of God - "Contractor"
  6. Tool - "Ænima"
  7. Nirvana - "Heart-Shaped Box"
  8. Korn - "Bottled Up Inside"
  9. A Perfect Circle - "Thinking of You"
  10. Whitechapel - "Eternal Refuge"

So how did Pandora work out their list? Their Staff Scientist Erick Schmidt told Revolver, " Sure, it's subjective — what is scary for one person might not be for another — but we're using a few things to identify songs on the list."

"One is Pandora's Music Genome Project that leverages human-based analysis across 450 characteristics, such as instrumentation, genre and tempo. However, the biggest part of predicting what the mood of the song is actually through looking at how listeners interact with it."
