Charles Manson
I'm like a lot of Internet-addicted losers out there, meaning that I read a lot about serial killers. Despite admitting that, I'm still not sure where I came up with this concept. Maybe it's because I'm going to the Gathering of the Juggalos for RFT Music in just over a week and I'm trying to mentally prepare myself.

6. Jeffrey Dahmer - Black Sabbath

Jeffrey Dahmer was a man from Milwaukee who worked in a chocolate factory. He raped and murdered seventeen men over a period of thirteen years. Sometimes he disintegrated them in acid. While Dahmer was the subject of songs by metal bands such as Blood Duster and Slayer, he also spawned a concept album by the band Macabre.

Oddly enough, Dahmer himself was also a fan of heavy metal. A former barracks roommate of his in the army described him as a likeable guy -- that is, until he started drinking martinis and blasting Black Sabbath eight-tracks.

5. Richard Ramirez - AC/DC

Otherwise known as "The Night Stalker," Richard Ramirez died this year from blood cancer while on death row. Ramirez was infamous for the horrible violent rampages he committed in Southern California in the 1980s. He also claimed to be a Satanist, shouting "Hail Satan" and displaying an inverted pentagram drawn on his hand in the middle of his trial. Once, while he was being a horrible piece of shit invading people's homes and terrorizing them, he left an AC/DC baseball cap at the scene of the crime. Some speculate that his method of home invasion and murder was inspired by the AC/DC song "Night Prowler."
