I don’t know what you think, but things in this world are pretty heavy right now. Pointless wars, senseless leaders. Prices are high and morale is low. It eats away at my soul when I think about it.
Apparently, it’s affecting a lot of bands right now, too. If depression had a color, it’d be black. Not reserved for goths anymore, black is popping up in the names of indie rock bands everywhere. Black reflects the sense of danger looming in the air, an effect of living in this culture of fear.

The Black Crowes
I’m sure I left some out, but you can see what I mean. Black is the fashion.
