"Screaming Suicide addresses the taboo word of suicide,” says James Hetfield. "The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It's ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it's a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”
This song is not about suicide, it's about living.
Every time I see the “viewer discretion advised” prompt, it’s proof of why this song’s message is so important.
Dear CS-tv, do not censor this video, hiding a problem does not help the problem to disappear but rather makes the problem act like an invisible monster that kills you when you least expect it. As the title of the Metallica song says: Sad but true.
I lost my father last year in April through suicide. I wished he would've talked more with me about his demons ( Army veteran served in Iraq) and his issue with my mom.
This song goes hard. 72 seasons the more you listen to the album the better it gets. Awesome
Amazing song 🤘🤘🤘
This song is so close to my heart, and my favourite Metallica song to date.
When I'm in darkness I remember to listen to them, they saved me once and they will always do🤘🏻 Long live Metallica!
Lost one of my best friends to suicide just under two years ago, and almost myself this January. I’m so appreciative of this song, hopefully someone hears it and it gives them hope, thank you Metallica, and thank you James for your beautiful message
42 years in and still releasing tracks of this level. Simply phenomenal. Long live Metallica.
One of those bands that keeps rocking! I've been loving all their modern material as well as the back cat.
This song is not about sucide. It's an inspiration for life. Thank you Metallica🤘James, lars, Kirk, Robert, Jason, Cliff❤Long live Metallica❤
I know that the thought police get themselves twisted up at the use of the word "suicide". As someone who has struggled with my darker side, I want to thank Metallica for having the courage and artistic integrity to take this subject on. This song is NOT about suicide, it's about overcoming those destructive negative thoughts and living a worthwhile life.
Am 68 years old and will always love METALLICA and heavy metal music. ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a superb track!!! I'm 78yrs and this one gave me goosebumps!!!
Metallica is one of the best things that had happened in my life since I was a kid
"We’ll never stop, We’ll never quit, ’Cause We’re Metallica"
My father took his life in 2004 and I’m finally able to accept it. Miss him everyday.
Metallica have gotta be the most HONEST bands-you speak my TRUTH.❤People who have absolutely no understanding or insight try to tell me that listening to metal is only making me more depressed and suicidal-NOT TRUE-it's(sadly😢)relatable.❤ you guys.Every best wish to my fellow Metallica Family members,may you find peace and healing.
