Exit, of coarse. Unless we're including Corpse, that's the scariest thing I've ever heard out of my speakers. The dragging of the chains, the lyric sounds like it's something Satan would say to me, I never knew Egde could be that creepy.

U2's genuinely most scary song is Exit. But I've always found it to be more wickedly fuckin awesome rather than scary.

United Colors and Acrobat definitely get votes as well.

Passangers, minus a few, is their scariest album.

And The Joshua Tree (One Tree Hill, Mothers of the Disappeared) is extremely haunting too.

yeah the obvious choice is Exit. Scariest, and also angriest. darkest.

Ok....so for me I think the scariest would be the ones I do NOT like to listen to in the dark....

Unforgettable Fire (I'm not sure why)
Zooropa (This is moer recent...I fell asleep listening to it the other night and had nightmares)
Alex Decends Into Hell

Now Exit on the other hand. That is probably their eeriest (lyrically at least) song

Actually, that was Liam being polite.

I'd definitely go with Love is Blindness for haunting sound, Exit as scariest. When truly done right Bullet the Blue Sky live is truly haunting, particularly the intro.

I agree with Wake Up Dead Man, not even listening to it backwards. One time I started to listen to it backwards, but I had to turn it off right away, I was too creeped out.

I also am a bit creeped out by some parts of Tomorrow. "Don't open the door, somebody's outside."

Bullet the Blue Sky because of its intenseness and Exit for lyric and sound too I guess. Some of the Passengers soundtrack is dark and eerie too come to think of it.
