Top 10 Happy Sounding Songs With Dark Lyrics
The Top Ten
Now that I think about it, ya this has a terrible message. Childhood ruined
This is one of my favorite Van Halen songs. But it has a dark secret with it's chorus. It is based off a man about too commit suicide
Lead man David Lee Roth said so himself. - Draco
This song's lyrics describe a brutal serial killer's offspring of murder's. Just listen to the chorus when they say "Better run, better run faster than my bullet." Yikes. - Draco
This song is just strange. - Userguy44
School shootings. Pretty much sums it up.
About shooting and shoes...
This song you may remember singing at as a child, but this song isn't really meant for children. It is based completely on the infamous disease outbreak of the 1400's, the Black Death. The lyrics to this song are based on how people died from and handled the disease. Sick children's song if I may say so myself. - Draco
Another favorite rock song with Dark lyrics. This song is based off a KISS fan's death while traveling to a KISS concert. Although it might be a tribute song to that fan, it still can't hide that fact. - Draco
Okay, okay this song for some might not be dark, but for others like me, IT IS. The part that puts it here is when he says "He see's you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake." That is has stalker all over it! - Draco
This is an amazing rap song with some pretty screwed up lyrics and a even more screwed up music video. It is a song about a Eminem fan that goes too the verge of insanity when Eminem doesn't reply to Ryan's letter's. He goes to the point of driving his car of a bridge with his preganet wife in the trunk and himself obviously driving. Crazy enough for Slim Shady himself. - Draco
How is this even a happy sounding song?!
How does it sound happy
The title says it all. This songs lyrics are about a bridge in London collapsing. People were on this bridge when it collapsed. You see what I mean. - Draco
This song is a stalker song in the making. Just listen too the lyrics. It also turns into a suicidal song at the and, you gotta hear the lyrics song you'll see what I mean. - Draco
This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I absolutely love the instrumentals, the lyrics, and everything! It is a great song to listen to. If any of you haven't heard it before, you really do have to hear this!
I think they made it sound cheerful on purpose.
Honestly one of the darkest songs ever - Rythmystic
This song may seem innocent but it isn't. It is a song about the downfall of drug abuse, specifically crystal meth, and the deprivity that comes with it. Just listen to the lyrics, "The sky was gold, it was a rose/I was taking sips through my nose/And I wish I could get back there, someplace back there/Smiling in pictures you would take/ - Draco
Music is too happy for this subject matter but I totally love the song. - Metal_Treasure
I have ever thought that there's a huge discrepancy between music and lyrics of this song, especially the chorus - it is too playful for the lyrics "No doctor, no healing, there's only disbelieving - the naked truth, no fantasy". I like this song for the music and it's performance - vox, guitars, drums. - Metal_Treasure
This song is about censorship of Western culture during the Iranian Revolution.
By far should be #1. Listen to the sample. - JoLeKosovo
About a child psycho going around murdering people with his hammer. it so catchy though, pretty freaky
Honestly, after you hear it twice you are left spellbound. So much for a happy, catchy song I thought it was!
This song is actually about capitallism and anti-immigration settlements! Not what I thought, robbery or murder. - Draco
Man, the lyrics to this song are really dark when you think about it, but damn if it isn't catchy as hell - TheStargazer
I mean its My Chemical Romance dude
Play it backwards and it says "It's fun to smoke marijuana"
"Before you came in my life, I missed you so bad"
Not dark. - JoLeKosovo
The translations reveal that it's actually about a nuclear war.
A song with catchy instrumental breaks that talks about methamphetamine addiction amongs blue-collared workers. - JoLeKosovo
Remember when Mr. Sun said "It's gonna be a good one just wait and see"? that's creepy
Though it is based on a horror game franchise and the dark lyrics are justified, this just takes it to a whole new level. - AsteroidCat
Many people mistake this for a love song, but this is about stalking. - littlebear82
The lyrics feature horrible ways to die - ZootopiaFan
Considering what the song is about,the music is really happy-sounding - DejanKalinic
A very cheerful song about, um, er, cannibalism.
A lot of TBM songs are that way.
Extremely dark and aggressive, yet so catchy. From the bass intro to the riff, then the verse and the chorus, you just want to mosh and sing along, yet it's about the genocide of the educated in cambodia, and a harsh condemnation of American Society.
