Rock/Metal songs to celebrate our loved ones who passed away…

« I wish you were here » – Dropkick Murphys

« Hell’s Bells » – AC/DC

Paru sur l’album « Back In Black » en 1980, sorti cinq mois seulement après le décès de Bon Scott, le premier single Hell’s Bells voit l’arrivée en grande pompe du tout nouveau chanteur du groupe, Brian Johnson. Un morceau mythique avec ses 13 coups de cloche qui sonnent le glas, et qui marquera le début de tous les concerts d’AC/DC pendant les tournées « Back In Black » (1981) et « For Those About To Rock » (1982). Classée seulement 50e du Top Billboard aux Etats-Unis, la chanson se hissera jusqu’en 8e position du classement français.

I’m rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I’m comin’ on like a hurricane
There’s lightning’s flashing across the sky
You’re only young, but you’re gonna die

Won’t take no prisoners, won’t spare no lives
Nobody’s putting up a fight
Took my bell, take you to hell
Satan get you, Satan get you

Hell’s bells
Yeah, Hell’s bells
You got me ringing, Hell’s bells
My temperature’s high, Hell’s bells
You get the flame

I’ll give you black sensations up and down your spine
If you’re into evil, you’re a friend of mine
See my white light flashing as I split the night
God’s on the left, I’m stickin’ to the right

Won’t take no prisoners, won’t spare no lives
Nobody’s puttin’ up a fight
Take my bell, take you to hell
Satan get you, Satan get you

Hell’s bells
Ah, Hell’s bells
You got me ringing, Hell’s bells
My temperature’s high, Hell’s bells
You’re gonna get… yeah, yeah

Yeah

Hell’s bells, Satan’s comin’ to you
Hell’s bells, the cross is dead
Hell’s bells, we’re takin’ you under
Hell’s bells, you’re gonna fry

Hell’s bells, they’re takin’ you down
Hell’s bells, underground
Hell’s bells, gonna split the night
Hell’s bells, nowhere to hide

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah
Hell’s bells, yeah

« To live is to Die »- Metallica

To Live Is To Die
(Vivre C’est Mourir)

When a Man Lies He Murders
Quand un homme ment il assassine
Some Part of the World
Une partie du monde
These Are the Pale Deaths Which
Ce sont les pâles morts que
Men Miscall Their Lives
Les hommes appellent à tort leurs vies
All this I Cannot Bear
Je ne peux pas supporter
To Witness Any Longer
De voir ça plus longtemps
Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation
Le royaume du salut ne peut-il
Take Me Home
Me ramener chez moi ?

« Who wants to live forever »- Metallica

Une chanson de Brian May, inspirée de la disparition de son père.

« Hickory Creek »- Whitechapel

Hickory Creek traite de la mort de la mère de Phil Bozeman, le frontman de Whitechapel. Au moment de sa mort, Phil était seul car son père était déjà décédé quelques années auparavant. Tout l’album The Valley traite de cette terrible période de la vie du chanteur, les problèmes qu’il a rencontrés en l’absence de sa mère et la colère qu’il a ressentie envers son beau-père, qui a participé à la détérioration de la santé de sa mère.

« The Ghost inside »- White light

Le frontman Jonathan Vigil a écrit cette chanson à propos de son jeune frère, Ryan, qui est décédé soudainement dans son sommeil.

Paroles

You left some hope instilled in me
That I never should give up on anything
I know this made you proud of me
So this song remains for those who hurt like me

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black. He rides alone: he’s moving on.
Not coming home.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He’s watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

Before I used to take these wings and I’d fly so high
(I’d fly so high. I tried…)
Now I live in regret never coming down to say goodbye
Oh why can’t I?

The man in black. He rides alone to a final destination unknown.
The man in black. He rides alone: he’s moving on.
I can’t follow.

I used to be the fearless one.
Living each day like death would never come
Now I feel his cold breath on my neck
He’s watching my steps and telling me that I could be next.

So make way for the man in black
So make way. He’s never coming back.

I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine the light for me
I’m sinking, I can’t swim
I need you here to pull me in
I am so lost at sea
Ryan, shine your light for me
I’m sinking, I can’t swim
I miss you brother.
You will never dim.

« Wage War »- Youngblood

Cette chanson a été écrite à la mémoire d’un ami du groupe, Louis Pulford, qui s’est suicidé en janvier 2014. Il avait à peine 17 ans.

Sometimes we’re left to uncover the wreckage
At the mercy of another’s decision
He was almost seventeen
Decided life was not worth living
Put a gun to his pain
To finally make it go away
And I hope you know that you’re missed
And even though your shell is gone in our hearts you still exist
I just wish you knew how much you meant. To everyone around you. To those you never met
He was too young
Taken by his own hand
No one would understand
Why he ended it all
But now you’re gone
You left a hole in the hearts of those who treasured you the most. You may have left your mark but you left us all in the dark
So I’ll sing
For the weak
For the broken, those in need
And I’ll keep
My heart in reach
Left wide open, set you free
You were loved
I always saw a light in you and a smile on your face. Full of passion, full of purpose, ready to take your place. I guess we’ll never understand why you chose to say goodbye, but when a future is as bright as yours, we are left to wonder why
There’s so many things I wish I would’ve said
The flashbacks replay in my head
This song is all that I have because
You’re never coming back

« Volumes »- Vahle

Cette chanson parle d’un ami proche du groupe, James Vahle, qui est mort dans un accident de voiture.

Paroles

All my life
I can’t define
This single instant
This graphic moment
To step foot on this
To step foot on this

You’ll never know
You’re the reason I came
I cannot do this without you
No, I never doubt you
But I feel like you don’t feel the same way

Now you’re buried underneath
Gone but never forgotten
James Vahle

I was young
An inquisition of who I would become
Who I see in myself
When the gravel got loose
And you were just trying to help me

Loved ones
Afterlife is something that you think about
When you’re caught up in that moment
That moment you don’t wanna dream about

When you want something more
And she said I was stuck
And I should have pulled you out of that truck
I’m sorry, it’s my summer

We’ve been saying
Why’d you have to go?
Why’d you have to go?
I’ve been waiting
Staring at the floor
Staring at the phone

Now you’re buried underneath
Gone but never forgotten
James Vahle

I don’t often think about regret
And what it means to me
I will always have all respect
About what you mean to me

Why the fuck couldn’t you have left it in the driveway?
I knew it
I would have picked you up
I would have been there
Why the fuck couldn’t you have left it in the driveway?
I can see you
Now every time I turn the corner all I’m gonna think about is

Loved ones
Afterlife is something that you think about
When you’re caught up in that moment
That moment you don’t wanna dream about

When you want something more
And she said I was stuck
And I should have pulled you out of that truck
I’m sorry, it’s my summer

We’ve been saying
Why’d you have to go?
Why’d you have to go?
I’ve been waiting
Staring at the floor
Staring at the phone
