PostSubject: Songs about shootings   Mon Aug 17, 2015 6:40 pm

Any songs about shootings, but maybe thats a bit specific so songs about crime as a whole or problems in schools that you really like, or that really get to you?

I will start of with Pumped up Kicks by Foster the People. Don't really like Foster the People but this one really gets me.

Also, paradisedreams put this on songs that remind you of Columbine but:

Kelly Rowland - Stole

Ever since I heard this on the other thread I can't stop listening.

Dopefiends Diner- 2Pac

Although its not school shooting related it is about a "dope dealer" having a scuffle outside a diner and ends up getting shot. Although I don't think its based off a true story, I do think it has a good moral behind it.

I was just thinking of this song when I saw the title to this thread. I knew Eminem mentioned Columbine a few times in some of his songs. I just wasn't sure the names of them.

There's a quite a few.

The Way I Am
'When a dude's getting bullied and shoots up his school
And they blame it on Marilyn (on Marilyn)... and the heroin
Where were the parents at? And look where it's at
Middle America, now it's a tragedy
Now it's so sad to see, an upper class city
Having this happening (this happening)...
Then attack Eminem 'cause I rap this way (rap this way)...
But I'm glad 'cause they feed me the fuel that I need for the fire
To burn and it's burning and I have returned'


Remember Me
'Came home, and somebody musta broke in the back window
And stole two loaded machine guns and both of my trenchcoats
Sick, sick dreams of picnic scenes
Two kids, sixteen with M-16's and ten clips each
And them shits reach through six kids each
And Slim gets blamed in Bill Clint's speech to fix these streets?
Fuck that, pbbt – you faggots can vanish to volcanic ash
And reappear in hell with a can of gas and a match
Aftermath, Dre, grab the gat, show 'em where it's at'


I think there's a few more, but these are the two I remember most.

Can't believe I forgot about those! Remember Me is one of my favourite songs.

Pigs - Tyler, the Creator

I think I have fallen in love with this song.

We seem to have a very similar taste in music. Very Happy

I love Tyler, the Creator / Odd future as a whole. And then Eminem is somewhat of a childhood thing. Very Happy

I can't share you a link yet but there's a song off a movie called Rudderless that I've mentioned multiple times on this site that hammers home when it's played at the end of the movie.

The song is called Sing Along and you'll be able to find it on YouTube - Billy Cruddup did it.

"Rivals" by Pearl Jam (the song was written about the Columbine shootings, in particular the shooter's point of view).

I personally think that song "Shout" by Tears For Fears reminds me of the boys too.

Of course Shine by Collective Soul always reminds me of Cho Seung-Hui.

Wicked Young Man - Alice Cooper
"I got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school
I'm the devil's little soldier, I'm the devil's little tool
It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man"

'I take seven (kids) from (Columbine), stand 'em all in line
Add an AK-47, a revolver, a nine
a Mack-11 and it oughta solve the problem of mine
and that's a whole school of bullies shot up all at one time'

There's a "sequel" to this song:

Quote :
So I crunch rhymes
But sometimes when you combine
Appeal with the skin color of mine
You get too big and here they come trying to
Censor you like that one line I said
On "I'm Back" from the Mathers LP
One when I tried to say I'll take seven kids from Columbine
Put 'em all in a line
Add an AK-47, a revolver and a nine
See if I get away with it now
That I ain't as big as I was

and yes, they didn't censor the same rhyme as they did back in 2000.
I wonder if this type of censorship is useful in some way. Blacking out the word "Columbine" in a set of rhymes that all end in "-ime" or "-ine" doesn't have that much purpose, I think. You're able to understand what's missing from the context.

Tyler the creator made a song about Columbine too. It seems like Columbine is still a cool reference in music, rappers love it. If Eric and Dylan knew.

Marilyn Manson's "The Nobodies" is actually about Eric and Dylan. The video contains an interesting hint in the form of Manson playing two separate entities; One in black and red, and one in black and white.

From the topic I posted earlier; the 'documentary' as a whole is insipid, but I like the song they put together for the beginning and end credits, despite some of the lyrics being ridiculous.

Kreator - Amok Run is about Cho Seung-Hui, and the lyrics even quote him directly at the beginning.

Although ICP can be cringy I still enjoy this song. Shocked
Some lyrics.

"I'll do anything for thy, don't ignore me
This is more than a sick love story
Without you I'd bring a shotgun to school
And I will if you want me to for any reason
I hate that you leave when the lights come on
And if I had it my way the fuckin' sun would be gone"


"Now I'm in their yard with a shotgun and knife
Cut the screen, went in and found the kid
Blew a bowl of spaghetti in the side of his head
And the daddy was next runnin' down the hall
I shredded his throat and he was quick to fall
Tossed the Mossberg and gripped the knife
Started stabbin' the shit outta his wife
Went home a bloody mess with a job well done (tap tap)
Wash up and wait for my baby to come (tap tap)"
