Best Metal Songs to Play at Your FuneralAragorn98 Some 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. - Aragorn98
About two car accidents the singer (Hansi Kürsch) witnessed. - Aragorn98
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
They even played this at Cliff Burton's funeral. - Aragorn98
About the death of a female lover and the prospect of dying or committing suicide and rejoining her in the afterlife. - Aragorn98
The perfect metal song for a funeral. It's a tribute to long lost friends who died too early. - Aragorn98
One of the songs off of their concept album Metropolis Part 2. - Aragorn98
About when people have a loved one that died and they end on a bad note. They wish they could've said something to them. - Aragorn98
Zakk Wylde dedicated this song to Dimebag Darrell (who was shot and killed a year before this song was recorded). - Aragorn98
I have no idea what this song's about, but it's very soothing and could fit for funerals (even though it's by a satanic band, but let's ignore personal beliefs and enjoy the music). - Aragorn98
Definitely this. Please listen to this song its really short. R.I.P Chuck Schuldiner.
