Oddly enough, Manson thought he heard the messages in between Beatles songs. The term "Helter Skelter" was the name he gave the race war between whites and blacks, but it's actually a cut off the White Album. Strangely, some think none of this would have happened if critics had been more responsive to Charles Manson's music.

Al Capone is straight out of central casting when you think mobster, and during the s he became one of the most notorious criminals who ever lived. He ran a violent empire in Chicago known as the Chicago Outfit that dealt in bootlegging, prostitution, and gambling.

It was largely due to the rival Irish gang hi-jacking Capone's liquor shipments, and for this he shot up an entire city block. Known as Pogo the Clown, John Wayne Gacy is one of the most notorious criminals in American history, as well as one of the most prolific serial killers ever.

Gacy was convicted of murdering 33 young boys between and , stuffing them into the crawl space of his home. Dressed in his clown uniform, Gacy would perform at various fundraising events, while also giving him access to tons of children. Gacy was put to death by lethal injection in Jesse James, one of the most notorious criminals of all time, is often better thought of than many on this list. He had a reputation of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, but none of that is true.

All the evidence points to him being a dangerous criminal who only stole for his own gang. James and his gang robbed banks, stagecoaches, and trains across the Midwest. Despite the brutality of the crimes, the James Gang garnered sympathy among the public. Timothy McVeigh was a domestic terrorist who detonated a truck bomb in an Oklahoma City federal building on April 19, McVeigh was a veteran of the Gulf War, and he was apparently seeking revenge on the US Government for their role during the siege on Waco that killed cult leader David Koresh and 75 of his followers—many of them children.

McVeigh, one of the most notorious criminals in American history, was sentenced to death and died in Pablo Escobar was known as the "King of Coke" during reign, and he amassed a fortune of over two billion dollars. He is one of the most notorious criminals of all time, and his flagrant attitude has been subject of many movies and television shows. Escobar murdered anybody that got in his way—cops and children included—and during the 70s and 80s he had a near monopoly in the cocaine smuggling business to America, shipping over 80 percent of the drug smuggled into the country.

Jim Jones was one of the most notorious criminals to ever live, as he was the man behind Peoples Temple. Peoples Temple, or Jonestown, was a cult run by the disturbed and paranoid Jones who didn't permit anyone to leave. And that only adds to the dark mystique that swirls around the man who terrorised California in the 60s and 70s. His crimes included gunning down couples in parked cars, killing a cabbie, and stabbing a couple who were basking in a park in broad daylight.

Dahmer was eventually killed in prison. Not many people mourned. A rare example of a female serial killer, Aileen Wuornos was the daughter of a schizophrenic sex criminal and a mother who abandoned her as a child. None of which excuses her own rampant kill frenzy, which saw her murder seven men. As she herself later wrote, "I'm one who seriously hates human life and would kill again".

She was executed by lethal injection, and her last words were "I'll be back. Some called him the "Dapper Don" on account of his flashy suits and flamboyant personality. Others dubbed him the "Teflon Don" because charges just refused to stick. Either way, John Gotti was the most infamous mob lord of the 80s and 90s, running the murderous Gambino crime family in New York City.

The inspiration for movie characters and pop songs, Gotti was eventually got, and sent down for racketeering and murder with no possibility of release. He died in prison. Charles Manson Charles Manson may have been a wild-eyed drifter with a murky background, but such was his charisma that he created a devoted s commune that was like the dark flipside to the hippy movement.
