Diverse Rock Love Songs! (Valentines Feature)

The well know Heartagram Logo from Finnish rock band, HIM who describe their music as 'Love Metal.'


Its Valentines day on February 14th, so I thought I would look at some of my favourite love-related metal/rock songs to share with you! I have kept it mostly modern and tried to have a bit of variation, in terms of the lyrical content of love and the spectrum of rock genres, from Classic Rock to Pop Punk! As there is so many to chose from and I have included more in the playlist too!


So first I'm going to kick off with an early Paramore song (the band chose this name, as it was the maiden name of the bass player's mother at the time, then they learnt that 'paramour' meant "secret lover, they adopted name but altered the spelling!)

From their first debut album, All We Know Is Falling (2005) - My Heart 




The song closes their debut with a welcomed surprise, being the only Paramore song to feature screamed vocals from then guitarist, Josh Farro who along with Hayley Williams wrote the lyrics for the song. This is still one of my favourite Paramore songs, however some alternative 'love' inspired songs from them, include the beautiful and soothing, The Only Exception taken from Brand New Eyes (2009) and of course, probably the most popular mainstream song from their latest self-titled album (2013) with the fuzzy sparkly, Still Into You.





So as I have used HIM's heartagram as the feature photo, instead of the traditional Heart - I, of course, need to mention them! Although there is plenty to choose, from the love metallers themselves, being practically every song! I have decided to go with one of their old and still most popular songs:


Join Me originally taken from their Razordblade Romance (1999)





Check out many more HIM songs in my playlist at bottom of feature.





Okay so turning things a bit more gritty and sensual with Hard Rock, I have gone for Halestorm with:

I Get Off taken from their self titled album (2009)






Other alternative Halestorm more traditional love-themed songs include Break In and Here In Your Room both from The Strange Case Of...






To lighten things up, with some pop-punk, and for all those exciting early nervous relationships when you first start dating, here is Blink 182 with:

First Date taken from Take Off Your Pants And Jacket (2001)





This song captures the fun and awkward side of things perfectly with their catchy young love anthem. Blink 182 first emerged in the 1990's and are considered one of the most influential pop bands, who first popularised the genre, going on to influence other bands.





This wouldn't be complete with a Classic Rock offering! To fit this bill I have turned to Aerosmith and decided to pick their final single from their highly successful album with:

Crazy taken from Get A Grip (1993) 



Other Classic Aerosmith songs include, I Don't Want To Miss A Thing & Cryin'




As there are so many to chose from, check out my playlist for more mostly modern rock love-themed songs:










So what do you think of these songs? What are some of your favourite love rock songs?! Let me know and I can check them out and add them to the playlist!




Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
