Why are so many of Metallica's 1980's songs about suicide, disaster, or going insane?

    Green 666 by isotope rays is NOT forgivable; it leads to permanent hell. 666 is given with World Passport with no name on it (grey plastic card). Police 666 people on highways. Food stores and prisoners/insane asylum folks (released by the antichrist) 666 people too. Reject vaccines. Don't go into UFO to be healed by demons. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can't track you; burn documents as documents are from Satan

    Source(s): According to the Last Prophet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's using Tesla's ether); forgive me

    Ninety percent of the heavy metal songs out there are about the same dozen topics:

    Death

    Depression, loneliness, isolation, suicide

    The Devil, Satanism, black magic, withchcraft

    Drinking, drugs

    Fear

    Headbanging, thrashing and general heavy metal pride 

    Incarceration

    Insanity

    Murder, violence, warfare

    Politics

    Religion

    The unexplained - aliens, monsters, the supernatural

    Oh, you mean back when Metallica played metal!  The answer is simple, because those are very heavy metal topics.  Always have been.

    From the early days of Black Sabbath, suicide, disaster and insanity have been the most popular topics in heavy metal.  They still are, in fact.  Lyrically, heavy metal has always like to delve into the 'forbidden' and dark subjects.  Sex is another popular topic, but it's taboo in thrash metal (which Metallica used to be) because it's too much fun.  Thrash only deals with the 'serious' topics of metal, probably because it's really hard to sing about getting laid and sound angry about it.  Nickelback proved that nicely, now that I think about it.

    Because, back then, it was the Heavy Metal Era. And the more grunge, the better. Record Labels wanted more grunge..
