Staff Top Three Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Love Songs!
Rarely is love the subject matter of heavy metal where death and destruction play primary roles.
The simple answer may be that the qualities we tend to see with love are incongruent with the way we picture the heavy metal environment and themes. Love is connective and nourishing. Rock music can be aggressive and rebellious. Heavy metal is often about struggles of power. Musically, love songs are sweet and melodious where metal is based upon amplification and distortion. Love will embrace, but doesn't celebrate, evil.
