Best Metal Songs to Play at Your FuneralSome metal songs make absolutely beautiful funeral themes. And I have a list for all the metalheads who would like at least one of these songs to be played at their funeral.
The Top Ten
About how the guitarists (Jon Schaffer) friend (who came up with the band name) died in a motorcycle accident.UListen to Sample
About two car accidents the singer (Hansi Kürsch) witnessed.
Hansi turned these sad car accidents into a beautiful yet sad love story. Two kids were killed at the same intersection - a boy, and a week later - a girl.
In the song, the boy's life was taken by mistake: "Oh I really did fail for the first time, spoke the fiddler, poor old fiddler".
But these 2 kids were soulmates and that's why the girl also died a week later, to be together on the other side. "He is quite alone here and still waiting for you." The kids and the story are depicted on the album cover. - Metal_Treasure
James Hetfield even has a very beautiful tattoo - the music notes from this song played at Cliff Burton's funeral. - Metal_Treasure
