10 Dark, Twisted Songs About Albert Fish | Playlist
Many serial killers have had their crimes and suspect mental states captured via songs. Here are 10 songs written about early serial killer Albert Fish.
Albert Fish (1870 – 1936) was NOT a good guy. Sometimes, he’s referred to as “The Gray Man” or “The Werewolf of Wysteria,” among other names. Clearly, Fish represents everything that’s wrong with the world. EVERYTHING! He was a pedophile, a murderer, and a cannibal. Murderpedia adds other characteristics to the mix, namely coprophilia and urophilia, both sexual paraphilias. His most famous, rather infamous victim, was a 10-year old girl named Grace Budd. He has only three known victims – three too many – but more are estimated. He was executed in 1936, ate the age of 65.
Like so many serial killers, their crimes and psychological mindsets have made their way into a number of songs. Most of the time, it is rock bands, particularly death metal bands, that tackle such heavy subject matter. Death metal bands as well as a couple of rappers get in on the action to capture Fish musically. Expectedly, the results are diabolical and infernal.
