If you’ve visited or followed The Musical Hype before, you’ll know that “we ain’t new to this.” New to what, you ask? True crime playlists, particularly playlists compiling and providing commentary about songs about or related to serial killers, mass murderers, and the deviants of society. As scary, and arguably tasteless, as writing music about such awful individuals might be, there are plenty of them. For our latest installment of darkness, we explore one of the most discussed and most mysterious serial killers of them all, Jack the Ripper.
Jack the Ripper is a breed of serial killer that’s more mysterious than some. Why? We never found out who he was as he was NEVER caught. What we do know is, he killed women, but not just any women – prostitutes – the lowest members of society. But this isn’t the forum for a history lesson or even a true crime less – you can read up on the horrific serial killer yourself. This list compiles 12 songs written about Jack the Ripper. Undoubtedly there are more and surely in the future some dark soul will compose another, but think of this as a starting spot.
