21 In This River - Black Label Society

This song means more than any other on the list its about zakk wyldes best mate dimebag darrel dyind its a awesome tribute that means a loot to pantera and dimebag darrel fans

22 Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
23 Take Me to Church - Hozier
24 Creep - Radiohead

Even the band itself have stated that this is more of a happy song and as of why. The follow up for this song is My Iron Lung and like other than that: other songs with them, like Fake Plastic Trees and Bangers & Mash sounds in certain ways but the lyrics quite differs. I have no personal favourite with the band but I adore songs with them like Backdrifts and The National Anthem as well as of Tell Me Bitch and Jerusalem from Thom Yorke's On A Friday era. P.S Ever heard of Atoms For Peace?

25 Darkness Within - Machine Head

Many people will think this song is about depression or dying, but it is actually about having a deep love for music.

26 Them Bones - Alice In Chains

I think its about the fact that why live if your going to die? The music video shows insects killing each other, but its not that obvious at first

27 Kim - Eminem
28 Lithium - Nirvana

Lithium is an anti-depressant drug and the verses of the song represent the stages a person goes through while on the drug. "I'm so happy... Cause today I found my friends, they're in my head. I'm so ugly, that's okay cause so are you." And then the end of the song becomes angry, uncontrollable, and blazing with confusion and rage. "I like it I'm not gonna crack. I miss you I'm not gonna crack. I love you I'm not gonna crack! I'd KILL you I'm not gonna crack! "

29 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

This is the song that INVENTED secret meanings!

30 Norwegian Wood - The Beatles

John Lennon's confession to having an affair.

31 Sexy Sadie - The Beatles

Blasts the Maharishi for being really just a dirty old man.

32 Murder Game - Kevin Gates
33 Beauty School - Deftones
34 Semi-Charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
35 Mamma Mia - ABBA

I don't know what it is about, but watchmojo.com did a video about happy sounding songs with secret lyrics and one of the honorable mentions was Mamma Mia.

36 Leaving On a Jet Plane - John Denver

Seemingly a love song about young lovers, the singer of which has been a regretful fool. However, one unsung version laments in the last chorus, "Don't know if I'll be back again." The reason is that the jet plane is taking him to Vietnam and yes he doesn't come back.

37 Hot Fun In the Summertime - Sly and the Family Stone

While on the outside it talks about a beautiful summer day, it has a more political meaning in reality

38 The End - The Doors
39 Hey Ya! - Outkast

This fun and catchy song is about... a failing relationship. Wow... - SwagFlicks

40 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People
