Top 10 Metal and Rock Songs with Dark Lyrics and Happy MusicMetal_Treasure 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 ...
The Top Ten
Its supposed to be really dark yet when I hear this its sounds happy - christangrant
The entire song follows this gap between music and lyrics. - Metal_Treasure
An upbeat sounding song about nuclear detonation:
Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die. - Metal_Treasure
Believe it or not, this happy music was written to a suicide song. - Metal_Treasure
Man, the lyrics to this song are really dark when you think about it, but damn if it isn't catchy as hell - TheStargazer
Just click on the song sample below. - Metal_Treasure
Chorus sounds like some happy kids sing this (play the song sample):
"Fast as a shark, he'll cut out of the dark
He's a killer, he'll rip out your heart
On a one way track and you're not coming back
'Cause the killer's on the attack". - Metal_Treasure
I love this song start to finish but the chorus is too playful for these lyrics:
"Just try it, entice it telling me I'm dead. Don't fight it, invite it",... and so on. - Metal_Treasure
I like that song.It was on my Guitar Hero game. - Fretto
