Top 10 Metal and Rock Songs with Dark Lyrics and Happy Music

I don't say these songs are bad. I like some of them very much. This list just shows that sometimes music artists do weird things, even the good musicians.

Dark lyrics can be sad or creepy, or just related to serious lyrical themes but suddenly some happy cheerful music starts ...
