My friend and I are working on a film, and we are each taking our hand at finding a couple of songs that we find fit the mood of insanity that will be taking out throughout the movie

right now I have a couple songs from Via Audio because their lyrics and music composition is absolutely genius
namely Modern Day Saint and Enunciation

I've also thrown a Pink Floyd song on there or two

so if you guys have any awesome ideas for music that depicts insanity, please feel free to post
I'm looking for more independent music, but any suggestions are welcome!
if you could post a link as well, that would be super helpful

thanks in advance!
slippi - animal collective

ohhhh man check out dan deacon. anything by him. his music is awesome and full of insanity.

Akira Yamaoka

i like the music, not so much the singing
but this is more what i am looking for

thank you

keep the ideas comin guys!
Anything by Aphex Twin

Colorblind- Counting Crows: (Or the btbam cover, which I think is better)

Anything from the Akira soundtrack, like:

Boris- Melvins:

And I'd imagine some Voivod songs could set an insane-sounding atmosphere, too.
I used Mote by Sonic Youth one time for a video on war, it sounded insane but the last 3/4 of the song is pure feedback and noise.

17 minutes of insanity.
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.

Dream Theater - Six Degrees of inner turbulence. the whole album is about insanity

The SONG (not album) is about 6 different mental illnesses, none of which are insanity.

Jerry Was A Race Car Driver by Primus is what I imagine a nervous breakdown would be like if it were a song.

Also possibly Delirium Trigger by Coheed and Cambria
Demolition hands.... Got 'em!
check out my song "01000101" in my profile. when i wrote the song, i literally wrote it as a soundtrack of someone going insane. i won't explain it step by step but it's for a concept album i'm working on. you can use part of it if it fits.

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory
Feeling paranoid
True enemy, or false friend
Anxiety's attacking me
And my air is getting thin
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm chomping at the bit and
My palms are getting wet

Forever, The Lotus Eaters, the Death Of Passion, I Am The Dog, Cenotaph, (most of the Dreaming Neon Black album) and the "the children, sitting in the trees" section of This Godless Endeavour, all by Nevermore. Warrel Dane is amazing at sounding completely out of his fucking head.

EDIT: Also, Shitstorm, We Ride, and the end of Two weeks, by Strapping Young Lad.
