  • "Folsom Prison Blues" By Johnny Cash for the line "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die"

    I hear the train a comin'
    It's rolling round the bend
    And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when,
    I'm stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin' on
    But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone..
    When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
    Always be a good boy, don't ever play with guns.
    But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
    When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

    I bet there's rich folks eating in a fancy dining car
    They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars.
    Well I know I had it coming, I know I can't be free
    But those people keep a movin'
    And that's what tortures me...

    Well if they freed me from this prison,
    If that railroad train was mine
    I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line
    Far from Folsom prison, that's where I want to stay
    And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away...

    • Fantastic pick. My granddad used to play that song a lot when I was a kid. Brings back memories.

  • Okay songs about murder are different than songs about crime.

    Slipknot - Disasterpiece
    "I wanna slit your throat and fuck the wound
    I wanna push my face in and feel the swoon
    I wanna dig inside, find a little bit of me
    Cause the line gets crossed when you don't come clean"

    • I don't know what happened, Something must have happened with the amount of links I posted, I literally took the songs I listed right from youtube

    • Show All
    • Son come running
      You better come quick
      This rotgut moonshine is making me sick
      Your Mama called the law and they're gonna take me away
      Down so far even the Devil won't stay
      Where I call to the Lord with all my soul
      I can hear him rattling the chains on the door
      He couldn't get in I could see he tried
      Through the shadows of the cage around the forty watt light

      Daddy tell me another story
      Tell me about the lows and the highs
      Tell me how to tell the difference between what they tell me is the truth or a lie
      Tell me why the ones who have so much make the ones who don't go mad
      With the same skin stretched over their white bones and the same jug in their hand

      My Daddy played poker on a stump in the woods back when the world was gray
      Before black and white went and chose up sides and gave a little bit of both their way
      The only blood that's any cleaner is the blood that's blue or greener
      Without either you just get meaner and the blood you gave gives you away

    • Son come running you better come quick
      This rotgut moonshine is making me sick
      Your Mama called the law they're gonna take me away
      Down so far even the Devil won't stay

      Where I call to the Lord with all my soul
      I can hear him rattling the chains on the door
      He couldn't get in I could see he tried
      Through the shadows of the cage around the forty watt light

  • Kim by Eminem. It's about as dark and disturbing as it gets, but it's a masterpiece in its own right.
