I came into this knowing that SAD! was not only one of X's most acclaimed tracks but one of the biggest songs ever, and then I heard the line "Suicide if you ever try to let go" and wanted to punch something. I'm not inherently against negative depictions of humanity in art, but it has to be intentionally negative; SAD! acts as a letter to a girlfriend/ex-girlfriend and thus is completely unaware of how creepy and honestly abusive that sentiment feels, making the track a nightmare to ... read more
