Horror Rock

Remember the song "If you like piña coladas/ And getting caught in the rain/ If you're not into health food/ And you're into drinking champagne/ . . ."? Pretty annoying, huh? That song was written by Rupert Holmes. Well, in 1971 he wrote a song recorded by one-hit wonder band The Bouys, Timothy. Rupert was at a different stage in his life then. It was before the piña coladas had taken the edge off.

Timothy was about cannibalism.

"Timothy" is a song written by Rupert Holmes and recorded by the Buoys in 1971, presenting the unnerving story of three men trapped in a collapsed mine, two of whom apparently resort to cannibalism against the third (the eponymous character Timothy).

. . .

"Timothy" attracted little attention when it was first released, in large part because Scepter Records did not promote the record. Soon, however, it became popular among young listeners who were able to deduce Timothy's fate from the lyrics. Only as the song became more frequently requested did radio stations begin to take note of the song and its unsettling subject matter. Then, just as Holmes and the Buoys had expected, the song started getting banned.

Under normal circumstances, a radio ban would be considered the "kiss of death" for a single's prospects on the Billboard music charts, which at that time were based heavily on radio airplay. Yet "Timothy" had already attracted such a great following that as some radio stations banned the song, competing stations would pick it up to meet the demand. As a result, instead of dropping off as expected, the song continued slowly moving up the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Once they realized they had a hit record on their hands, Scepter Records executives tried to claim that Timothy was really a mule, not a person, in order to get radio stations that had banned the song to reconsider.



When I first heard Timothy, I was a little kid. It was a catchy tune, and I was focused on the chorus. I thought it was about someone who disappeared--I don't know--because of inter-dimensional travel or something. Not surprising, considering I had read The Forgotten Door by then and was listening to the Moody Blues, songs like Gypsy and The Best Way to Travel. Eventually, a kid in the neighborhood told me it was a true story about two kids who ate another kid, I was like "huh-uhhhhhuhhhhh!" Then I listened and got the full "eww" feeling.

Trapped in a mine that had caved in
And everyone knows the only ones left
Were Joe and me and Tim

When they broke through to pull us free
The only ones left to tell the tale
Was Joe and me

Timothy, Timothy, where on Earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Hungry as hell, no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat

Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll take a swig,
And then there's some for you."

Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again

My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy

Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

Timothy...

The only other horror rock song I can think of is Bloodrock's D.O.A. "I remember/ We were flying along/ And hit something in the air/ . . . ." I thought that was about an airliner hitting a UFO. Pretty spooky for a kid. And, of course, we thought it was true, whatever it was about.

If anyone can think of another one, let me know.

22 The ultimate horror rock song....who remembers D.O.A. from Bloodrock? Can't remember all the lyrics, but the chorus goes like this...

23 There's a creepy Dido song called "Don't Leave Home" that makes it sounds like an old/disabled person is being cut off from others:

Like a ghost don't need a key

Your best friend I've come to be

Please don't think of getting up for me

You don't even need to speak

When I've been here for just one day

You'll already miss me if I go away

So close the blinds and shut the door

You won't need other friends anymore

Oh don't leave home, oh don't leave home

Excitable boy, they all said
And he bit the usherette's leg in the dark
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy

He took little Susie to the Junior Prom
Excitable boy, they all said
and he raped her and killed her, then he took her home
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy

And he dug up her grave and built a cage with her bones
Excitable boy, they all said

45 This post does makes me smile, remembering the first date with my wife.
The first time I set foot in her apartment, she had the record player blasting out a top ten tune from an album.

She couldn't understand the lyrics (which was pretty common at the time), and noticing the look on my face she demanded to know what they were. So I recited them with the gleam in my eye that still evokes "the look" from her some 41 years later:

Sitting on a park bench

Eying little girls

With bad intent.

Snot running down his nose

Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.

Drying in the cold sun

Watching as the frilly panties run.

Feeling like a dead duck

Spitting out pieces of his broken luck.

I think there was a short-lived genre called "annoying rock" around 1980. Christopher Cross' "Sailing" comes to mind.

Come to think of it, I get "eww" for the pina colada song too. Maybe Rupert Holmes was exploring a different kind of revulsion then.

Most of Alice Cooper's music I'd consider to be Horror Rock. If you have the right frame of mind, it's actually pretty funny as it's so over the top.

Make up your mind
Decide to walk with me
Around the lake tonight
Around the lake tonight
By my side
By my side
I'm not gonna lie
I'll not be a gentleman
Behind the boathouse
I'll show you my dark secret

I'm not gonna lie
I want you for mine
My blushing bride
My lover, be my lover, yeah...

Don't be afraid
I didn't mean to scare you
So help me, Jesus

I can promise you
You'll stay as beautiful
With dark hair
And soft skin...forever
Forever

Make up your mind
Make up your mind
And I'll promise you
I will treat you well
My sweet angel
So help me, Jesus

(hey, hey, hey)

Give it up to me
Give it up to me
Do you wanna be
My angel?
So help me!

Be my angel

Be my angel

Do you wanna die?

I promise you
I will treat you well
My sweet angel
So help me, Jesus

I think it's about turning homo and liking it. On the same album (Sheik Yerbouti) is "Bobby Brown" which is definitely about that theme, though more of a lament.


Hey there, people, Im bobby brown
They say Im the cutest boy in town
My car is fast, my teeth is shiney
I tell all the girls they can kiss my heinie
Here I am at a famous school
Im dressin sharp n im
Actin cool
I got a cheerleader here wants to help with my paper
Let her do all the work n maybe later I'll rape her

Oh God I am the american dream
I do not think Im too extreme
An Im a handsome sonofabitch
Im gonna get a good job n be real rich

(get a good
Get a good
Get a good
Get a good job)

Womens liberation
Came creepin across the nation
I tell you people I was not ready
When I fucked this dyke by the name of freddie
She made a little speech then,
Aw, she tried to make me say when
She had my balls in a vice, but she left the dick
I guess it's still hooked on, but now it shoots too quick

Oh God I am the american dream
But now I smell like vaseline
An Im a miserable sonofabitch
Am I a boy or a lady...i don't know which

(I wonder wonder
Wonder wonder)

So I went out n bought me a leisure suit
I jingle my change, but Im still kinda cute
Got a job doin radio promo
An none of the jocks can even tell Im a homo
Eventually me n a friend
Sorta drifted along into s&m
I can take about an hour on the tower of power
Long as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the american dream
With a spindle up my butt till it makes me scream
An I'll do anything to get ahead
I lay awake nights sayin, thank you, fred!
Oh god, oh god, Im so fantastic!
Thanks to freddie, Im a sexual spastic
And my name is bobby brown
Watch me now, Im goin down,
And my name is bobby brown
Watch me now, Im goin down, etc.

123 Avenged Sevenfold "A Little Piece of Heaven"

(Sorry for the wall, it's a lengthy song)


Before the story begins, is it such a sin,
For me to take what's mine, until the end of time
We were more than friends, before the story ends,
And I will take what's mine, create what God would never design

Our love had been so strong for far too long,
I was weak with fear that something would go wrong,
Before the possibilities came true,
I took all possibility from you

Almost laughed myself to tears,
(Ha hahahahaha)
Conjuring her deepest fears
(Come here you fucking bitch)

Must have stabbed her fifty fucking times,
I can't believe it,
Ripped her heart out right before her eyes,
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it

She was never this good in bed even when she was sleeping
Now she's just so perfect I've never been quite so fucking deep in her
It goes on and on and on,
I can keep you looking young and preserved forever,
With a fountain spray on your youth whenever

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
But baby don't cry

Now possibilities I'd never considered,
Are occurring the likes of which I'd never heard,
Now an angry soul comes back from beyond the grave,
To repossess a body with which I'd misbehaved

Smiling right from ear to ear
Almost laughed herself to tears

Must have stabbed him fifty fucking times
I can't believe it
Ripped his heart out right before his eyes
Eyes over easy, eat it, eat it, eat it

(Eat the shit out of it)
Now that it's done I realize the error of my ways
I must venture back to apologize from somewhere far beyond the grave

I gotta make up for what I've done
'Cause I was all up in a piece of heaven
While you burned in hell, no peace forever

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
But baby don't cry

[Maniacal laughter]

I will (what will you do?) suffer for so long (not long enough)
To make it up to you
(I pray to God that you do)
I'll do whatever you want me to do
(Well then I'll grant you one chance)
And if it's not enough
(If it's not enough, If it's not enough)
If it's not enough
(Not enough)
Try again
(Try again)
And again
(And again)
Over and over again
(Over and over again)

We're coming back, coming back
We'll live forever, live forever
Let's have a wedding, have a wedding
Let's start the killing, start the killing
(You sucking bitch)

[Maniacal laughter]

"Do you take this man in death for the rest of your unnatural life?"
"Yes, I do"
"Do you take this woman in death for the rest of your unnatural life?"
"I do"
"I now pronounce you"

'Cause I really always knew that my little crime
Would be cold that's why I got a heater for your thighs
And I know, I know it's not your time
But bye, bye
And a word to the wise when the fire dies
You think it's over but it's just begun
But baby don't cry

You had my heart, at least for the most part
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime,
We fell apart, let's make a new start
'Cause everybody's gotta die sometime, yeah yeah
But baby don't cry

Your life ended fast you took your last breath
Dead in a grave, your final place
The maggots infest your disfigured face
Pus through your veins takes the place of blood
Decay sets in, bones begin to crack
Thrown six feet down left to rot
Brains oozing black down the side of your broken neck

Skull full of maggots

They enter your tomb - maggots - beginning to feast - maggots
Crawling on you - maggots - now they eat you - maggots
Rotting maggots - maggots - infesting your corpse - maggots
Parasites of the dead - maggots - now dwell in your head

168 Though best known from the song "Ode to Billie Joe" and the film (spelled differently) Ode to Billy Joe, which has the refrain, Billy Joe McAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie bridge, the river has historical significance due to the murder of Emmett Till, an African American youth who was beaten, shot, and sunk in the river by a cotton gin fan tied around his neck by barbed wire. This event is mentioned in another song, "Freedom Highway," by The Staple Singers, in the lines, "Found dead people in the forests, Tallahatchie River and lakes", "Whole world is wondering, what's wrong with the United States?" A third song that mentions the Tallahatchie river is "Tallahatchie River Blues," recorded by Mattie Delaney in 1930.

Hope this doesn't put me in the barrel.

lying next to me I fear
she beckons me shall I give in

forsaking all I've fallen for
I rise to meet the end

Wrapped up like a douche. Because a 12 year old boy assumes douche is sold in tight packages. And "runner in the night" is plainly about sexual activity. Anything going on at night is.

Thus the line "she's gonna make it through the night" is heard as "she's gonna make it TO the night." Masturbation.

"Young chaperone, watching the young girls dance." Goes home and jacks it.

"Sneezing, wheezing." jackin it.

"blinded by the light" and the line about "that's where the fun is" when "momma always told me not to" -- because masturbation will make you go blind.

Broken Hearts are for Assholes was about (remember the time period 1978 - pre-AIDS) when being gay was de rigueur for the hip, and even "straights" were going to bathouses to see what it was all about. I remember cranking this one up in the dorms, ruined quite a few romantic evenings when it went into the "poop-shoot" chorus.

Let's not forget good old Alice:

Little Betty ate a pound of aspirin

Goodbye little Betty goodbye little Betty so long little Betty so long little Betty Betty so long

221 It is Tallahatchie first off. I happen to own about 400 acres in Carrollton where the Carroll County picture show took place - only theater in Carroll County to this day. Bobby Gentry was from around there. Here is what she told the screenwriters:

Bobby Gentry has historically remained coy about the meaning of her song. According
to her, the main theme of Billy Joe was simply death and dying, and the
ways in which we can be indifferent and oblivious to the suffering of others.




In a 2002 interview with the Florida-based TCPalm.com
website, Herman Raucher, the screenplay writer of the Billy Joe film, recalls
his encounter with Gentry as he tried to figure out the song's meaning:




INTERVIEWER: [You wrote] the screenplay for the Deep South, song-inspired
film Ode to Billy Joe. How did that come about?

RAUCHER: There’s an actor and writer and producer and director
named Max Baer, whose father was the world [heavyweight boxing] champion.
And Max called me because Summer of ‘42 just knocked him out,
and he said, I’ve got the rights to Ode to Billy Joe. Now, you
have to understand that Ode to Billy Joe was, at that time, the largest
selling record in musical history.

I said, ‘Max, what the hell do I know about Ode to Billy Joe?’


He says, ‘I want you to come out here and meet with Bobbie Gentry - I’ll
pay your way out here.’

I said, OK. ... Max and I go to meet her, and I ask her what does the song
mean?

She said, ‘I made it up. I don’t know what it means.’

I said, ‘You don’t know why he jumped off the bridge?’

She said, ‘I have no idea.’



He proceeds to explain that since the song apparently lacked a "true"
meaning, he simply made up his own storyline to explain the lyrics.


Bobbie Gentry is still alive, but has largely fallen from the public radar
screen. She has never published an autobiography, so today it is difficult to
determine if she has ever made any more authoritative statements on the meaning
of "Billy Joe." There is no reason to deny Raucher's story. Many musicians,
notably John Lennon and the Beatles, have frequently made similar statements
indicating that their songs' lyrics don't have a firm meaning and it is instead
up for the listener to determine their significance.

247 >>>Helen Reddy's Angie Baby. Creepy shit, man.

That was weird.

The song tells the story of Angie, a young "crazy"
girl who "lives [her] life in the songs" she hears on "rock and roll
radio;" her mental disturbances led to her being removed from school and
having no friends, leaving her to spend most of her time listening to
the radio. One day, a stalker arrives at Angie's house with the intent
to rape
her, but once he enters Angie's room he is disoriented by the loud
music. The song then takes a decidedly surrealistic turn as when Angie
turns the volume down, the boy is said to be sucked into the radio and
disappears. The closing verse describes the boy as Angie's "secret
lover" and that nobody bothers to get an explanation from Angie in
regard to the boy's whereabouts because of her insanity.

248 @80: Most of Alice Cooper's music I'd consider to be Horror Rock. If you have the right frame of mind, it's actually pretty funny as it's so over the top.

----------------------------

Alice's stuff was always done with a wink, very tongue-in-cheek, which made it ultimately funny. Early stuff along the lines of "Cold Ethyl," the song about necrophilia:

One thing no lie
Ethyl frigid, Ethyl Eskimo pie
She's cool in bed
she's gotta be, 'cause Ethyl's dead
Ethyl, Ethyl let me squeeze you in my arms
Ethyl, Ethyl come and freeze me with your charms

Or maybe "Under My Wheels," where the guy runs over his date with the car:

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
Anticipating fun
I'm driving right up to you, babe
I guess that you couldn't see, yeah yeah
But you went under my wheels
Why don't you let me be

All done in the early '70s before the onset of Death Metal and the like where it became serious and, well, ridiculous.

250 You Are My Sunshine



You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

I'll always love you and make you happy,
If you will only say the same.
But if you leave me and love another,
You'll regret it all some day

275 @234: I've got Manfred Mann singing it live on a Midnight Special DVD. He
clearly sings it "wrapped up like a deuce, another runner in the night"
which is how I'd always heard it.


Took it to mean dressed like a two bit whore out street walking.

Original lyrics, written by Springsteen (talk about a douche) I think may have been different. Never tried to look em up.

--------------------------------

Chris Thompson is the singer on that MM song (Manfred was the keyboard player). The lyrics are: "revved up like a deuce," as in a deuce coupe (think the Beach Boys song). That's the way Thompson sings it, if you listen. And it's the way Springsteen wrote it.

299 Not a song, but a short story I read in school when I was young.

It's summer, and a young boy is out on a work site with his dad who is some type of construction or engineering foreman.

They're trying to clear a pipe that goes through a large hill that's clogged with mud and water.

Dad tries from both sides to push a line through so that they can ream the pipe and clear it for flow but no luck.

Dad notices his boy is just smaller than the pipe and asks him in front of the crew if he'll tie off the line and carry it through for them, using his hands to clear the crap blocking the pipe.

Kid enters the pipe with the line attached and goes head first into a space about the same size as his body.

About half-way there he encounters the blockage but can't quickly clear it. The water is up to his nose, he can't go forward and he can't go back, and claustrophobia kicks in.

The description of his struggle to raise his head even a fraction of an inch, clear the blockage, struggle to move either direction, etc., went on forever.

Eventually he conquers his fear, clears the blockage and makes it through. The old man is proud and the crew treats him like he accomplished a right of passage.

But they weren't with him in the pipe when the psychological meltdown came ....

They never are.

And Max called me because Summer of ‘42 just knocked him out,

have to understand that Ode to Billy Joe was, at that time, the largest

Anything by Manfred Mann, Bon Jovi, Al Stewart, all Def Leppard after Hysteria, anything off St. Anger (the only Metallica album that was complete and total shit), most grunge music, all '70s music that wasn't hard rock or metal.

As an aside, my favorite Pink Floyd song is Time, but goddamn do I hate the into to that song. It sounds like Salvador Dali having auditory hallucinations while under the influence of absinthe and opium.

Clearly the most horrificly-horrifying horror rock is "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt." The first four lines make it clear that this poor man suffers from some un-named medical condition of mega-extreme hyper-attractiveness that causes him physical pain and limits his ability even to wear clothing.

Later in the song, we learn that this terrifying disorder has alienated him from his feline companion and prevents him even from earning a living as a male model, despite it being transparently clear that this is perhaps the one vocation for which he is best suited. Worst of all, the lyrics reveal that his illness has led to his exclusion (exile or deportation, perhaps) from both greater New York and the entire nation of Japan, undoubtedly implying that there is indeed nowhere, no place, that this lost soul can find acceptance, support, even the possibility of help.

Neither Sartre or Dante ever dreamt of a Hell like this man endures, yet he sings about his plight blithely, as if it were a mere bagatelle, leading the unwary listener to respond to the whole affair as nothing more than antic japery - an existential cri di couer couched in Top 40 cushioning, as if we are invited to mock the performer, to laugh, even to take pleasure in his suffering. And is that not the greatest horror of all?

Well, it's a great example of how good they could be when they got it together. If you would prefer more Experimental Blues, 'Live Dead' is a great option, too.

The problem with the Dead is they hardly ever got it on the same page on the same night...and they really were an act you had to catch live.
The result being 10-15 mediocre sets for each and every smokin' set. But there are some excellent copies of all the great shows available. Best part is they encouraged taping, so you can find evrything they ever did.

431 The only other horror rock song I can think of is Bloodrock's D.O.A.


I think me and my guys in The Misfits did a lot of horror rock.

Just sayin'.

432 425, for me, Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo was a huge help during my divorce. Still a terrific album. Doesn't hurt that the title song was featured in the Rodney Dangerfield film Back to School. Added bonus, the theme from Weird Science.

445 Good choices, but I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the song that concludes the Rubber Soul album, the Beatles' Run For Your Life.

And, has anyone here ever heard Don McLean's live version of Yonkers Girl? Fantastic-- and fantastically icky (and yes, it has a happy ending). Can't find a YouTube, so here's the lyrics:

I met a little girl in Yonkers not far from New Rochelle
and every Sunday evening within her home I'd dwell
I went to take a little walk to a dark and lonesome place
I drew a rail from off the fence and smashed her in the face

I then took out a piece of rope and I tied her to a tree
I said that I will kill you here if you won't marry me
I then pulled out my (??) knife - these words I will attest
I said if you won't marry me I'll plunge it through your breast

I then took out my 44 and I aimed it at her head
I said if you won't marry me then I will kill you dead
Then down upon her knees she got - for mercy she did cry
'Oh Donny dear don't kill me here - I'm not prepared to die'

But I did not heed her mournful cries - I only beat her more
Til the ground around her feet was covered with her gore
I took her by her long black hair and I drug her round and round
And I chucked her into the river a-flows by Yonkers town

Go down go down you Yonkers girl with a dark and blackened eye
Go down go down you Yonkers girl - I loved you on the sly
These words she said as she drifted by - they cut me to my heart
'Your love has changed - you are deranged - now you and I must part'

449 Warm Leatherette. Grace Jones, the Normal and here's a Trent Reznor/Bauhaus this version.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F4ZmfCGzlo


Warm leatherette,
See the breaking glass,
Beneath the underpass.

Warm leatherette,
Feel the crushing steel,
Feel the steering wheel.

Warm leatherette melts,
On your burning flesh,
You can see your reflection,
On the luminescent dash.

Warm leatherette,
A tear of petrol,
Is in your eye,
The hand brake,
Penetrates your thigh.

A tear of petrol,
Is in your eye,
Quick let's make love,
Before we die.

On warm leatherette,
Join the carcrash set.

450 Here are a few horrifying tunes I haven't seen mentioned here yet.

Peter Gabriel, "Intruder"

Many by Steeleye Span, such as:
"Long Lankin" -- "There was blood all in the kitchen/There was blood all in the hall/There was blood all in the parlour/Where my lady she did fall"
"Little Sir Hugh" -- ritual murder (the original ballad is antisemitic, but Prior et al edited the lyrics)
"Allison Gross" -- an encounter with a witch that doesn't end well
"King Henry" -- an encounter with a monstrous thing that does end well

Oingo Boingo, "Pictures of You"

Thunderclap Newman, "Accidents"

And something really obscure: Haystacks Balboa, "The Children of Heaven" -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Lkx1nONuXs

451 I have the song Timothy on my i-pod and still listen to it from time to time. It was a big hit, I was 13, and I do remember hearing originally that it was about 2 guys eating another guy, but then later they said it was a donkey.

Posted by: clos2thedge at February 09, 2013 08:23 PM (1Eu0J)

452 Oops... and of course no "horror rock" collection would be complete without our good friend Weird Al:

453 The Beatle's Norwegian Wood has John Lennon setting a gal's flat on fire as revenge for her not sleeping with him after leading him on.

While it's not eating Timothy for lunch, it is darkly hilarious.

Posted by: lr68 at February 09, 2013 10:53 PM (lzokh)

454 I never heard the one about Timothy being a mule! hell, we all knew it was about cannibalism.

But the one that really scared the liver out of me when I was a kid was "D.O.A." From the sirens wailing to the abrupt ending. What a hair-raising, vivid depiction of bleeding out after a car wreck! I heard it in nightmares for years.

"The girl I knew has such a distant stare . . ."

455
I am not sure of what criteria the writer would say qualifies as a horror rock song. But I would guess it is deceptively catchy tunes with horror like lyrics.
One such song I would say is TheBeatles song,Maxwell's Silver Hammer.
"Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer came downupon her head."
"Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure she was dead."
Sounds like a kids song but the lyrics say otherwise.
I would also throw in asong or twoby Pink Floyd like"Careful with that Axe Eugene" in which that is the only line in the entire song... if you don't count the scream. And in a similar vain, "One of These Days". Only one line but it's. "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces."
Led Zeppelin's "Gallows Pole" is a jaunty tune thatends in a hanging witha twist.
Pearl Jam's Dirty Frank is pretty good too. Like Timothy, it's about cannibalism... except based on a true story.
Then, of course, there were a whole slew of bands trying to make their mark in Death Metal throughout the 80's and 90's who's stock and trade was trying to write the most evil and/or creepy songs they could think of. Nine Inch Nails anyone?

Posted by: brian448 at February 10, 2013 03:32 AM (DXxi3)

456 AC/DC--"Night Prowler"

Richard Ramirez, the LA "Night Stalker", was obsessed with the song.

It was also the last song on "Highway to Hell", and Bon Scott choked to death on his own puke shortly after it was released.

Posted by: MidniteRambler at February 10, 2013 09:21 AM (bk97Q)

457 Some facts about "Timothy" --

The band was from northeastern Pa. I knew a couple of the guys in the band growing up.

The song references a mine cave-in which actually happened in a little village called Sheppton in August 1963. Three miners were trapped. Two were eventually rescued. The third -- who had separated from the others -- was killed.
Naturally, there were sick commentaries that the survivors had eaten the deceased.
