10 Chilling Songs Based On Real-Life Murders, Assassinations And Terrorist Attacks

With the 17th century advent of British murder ballads, the gangsta rap of the 1990s and modern-day narcocorridos (which sing about the savage exploits of Mexican drug cartels), it’s been proven that murder makes for good musical subject matter. And while many a songwriter has had a hit with tales of fictitious crimes and villains, others have ripped their storylines straight out of the daily news.

As you might expect, plenty of heavy metal bands have exploited the shocking details of the most notorious serial killers to titillate their audiences. Other artists, however, have tried to get inside the minds of the killers themselves, and the results often bring a sense of discomforting sympathy. Here are 10 songs — from ‘30s folk to ‘60s rock, and from ‘70s punk to modern hip hop — that sing about some of the worst killers and most notorious murders of all time.
