* Hong Kong lyricist Albert Leung admitted to struggling with anxiety disorder around 2000, having uncharacteristical fights with his mother and losing his temper; he wrote "Shall We Talk" to express his feelings about parental relationships. And despite this, he reached his peak of his famous prolificacy in the early 2000s, writing 216 songs in 2000 alone.

* Phil Elverum of solo project Mount Eerie had a nasty one after the death of his wife, Geneviève Castrée. His next project, ''A Crow Looked at Me'', was recorded in a very short amount of time following the event, and the album is built entirely around her passing and death in general, and the result is incredibly vivid and graphically miserable.

* Music/DavidBowie's tenth album, ''Music/StationToStation'', was created while he was in the middle of a massive cocaine addiction -- so bad that he's stated he remembers practically nothing of the recording process. It's also considered one of his best albums. A couple of songs from the classic "Berlin Trilogy" (''[[Music/LowDavidBowieAlbum Low]]'', ''"Music/{{Heroes}}"'', and ''Music/{{Lodger}}''), such as "Beauty and the Beast" and "Always Crashing in the Same Car", have been interpreted as being about his struggles to clean himself up during that time period. Prior to his recovery, he weighed as little as ninety pounds and was [[TooMuchInformation refrigerating his urine]] because [[GovernmentConspiracy he thought the government would steal it.]]

** An interviewer told Dylan how much she "enjoyed" the album... bad word choice. Bob immediately launched into a bitter denunciation of people "enjoying" other people's pain. Dylan's personal life has made it into some tracks since, but never so transparently as ''Music/BloodOnTheTracks''.

** Cave's side project, Grinderman, is pretty much his midlife crisis set to music. The album has a song on it called "No Pussy Blues", which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin tells you everything you need to know]].

** Part of ''Tug Of War'', along with ''Pipes Of Peace'', was written and recorded at around the same time period, in the shadow of the death of Music/JohnLennon, the breakup of Music/{{Wings}} (a result of an at-the-time breakdown of his friendship with Denny Laine), and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Paul's 40th birthday arriving in 1982]]. Many of the songs are reflective and autobiographical, his Lennon tribute "Here Today" in particular.

* Dede Fortin of the Quebec band Les Colocs was suffering from bipolar disorder while also dealing with former band mate AIDS related death (Tassez-vous de d'la), break-ups and the result of the 1995 Quebec referendum wrote Dehors Novembre (1998), which was very dark compared to the previous upbeat sound they use to have. Eventually committed suicide via seppuku in 2000.

* Jamey Johnson released his debut album on BNA Records in 2005, but due to a corporate restructuring, the label dropped him after only two singles, the second of which got no promotion and failed to chart. After a divorce, he became a ReclusiveArtist and developed a drug and alcohol addiction, even though Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, and Music/GeorgeStrait had all recorded some of his songs. Once he cleaned himself up, he moved to Mercury Records and began recording albums that have received extremely high critical acclaim for their "outlaw" influences.

* Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert hasn't had it easy out of the stage. Despite scoring charting hits with his mixtape ''Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World'', and landing a guest spot in Migos's chart-topping, meme-spawning "Bad and Boujee", he struggled with drug abuse and a turbulent relationship with his girlfriend, Brittany Byrd. Eventually he broke up with her, but it only made the situation even worse. This eventually culminated in the song "XO TOUR [=Llif3=]", where he details his trials and tribulations in love and addiction.

** John in general by 1965-1968 was burned out from fame, went through enormous WritersBlock and was suffering from drug abuse, not helped by his efforts to destroy his ego via LSD. He felt ensnared by his early marriage of convenience to Cynthia and life in the countryside (unfortunately, his relationship to his first son Julian suffered from this), felt envious of his single, swinging bachelor songwriting partner PaulMcCartney leading a more active lifestyle in the city, and via his crisis of confidence had loosened his input in the Beatles to see Paul take over. The untimely death of Beatles manager Brian Epstein in particular affected him, professionally and personally, and he felt too scared to branch out from the Beatles/pop star cocoon. It was not until he met Music/YokoOno that he began to gain more confidence (though he admitted that perhaps he heavily overcompensated for that towards the end of the band's career). His drug and alcohol abuse sadly ''did'' escalate up until the early 1970's, and again with his "lost weekend" period, though.

* In 1972, Music/NeilYoung was experiencing fame from his ''Music/{{Harvest}}'' album and his song "Heart of Gold." At around that time, his guitarist Danny Whitten took a fatal combination of Valium, which he was taking for severe knee arthritis, and alcohol while trying to overcome his heroin addiction (the subject of Young's song "The Needle and the Damage Done"); roadie Bruce Berry died from a heroin overdose just a few months later. Young followed up the radio-friendly ''Harvest'' with what is known as "The Ditch Trilogy" (named after a remark Young made about averting fame by "heading for the ditch"): Three albums that shared a gloomy, pessimistic theme. The first album, ''Time Fades Away'', was a live album released in 1973 consisting of original tracks. The second album, ''On the Beach'' was a studio album, continuing the dark themes in the previous album (and being named after a book concerning nuclear war). The third album, ''Tonight's the Night'', was directly about the deaths of Whitten and Berry (with one of the songs written by Whitten). ''Tonight's the Night'' was recorded in 1973 after the death of Bruce Berry, but the album was shelved for two years. ''On the Beach'' was released on CD twenty years after its initial release in 1974. ''Time Fades Away'', unfortunately, still hasn't been released on CD.

** The second breakdown occurred after the release of ''Music/{{Quadrophenia}}'', which was not as popular or as well-received at the time as Townshend had hoped it would be. This, in conjunction with his drinking problem, caused him to take a brief break from songwriting before returning two years later with the stripped-down and alarmingly cynical ''The Who By Numbers''.
** A third breakdown occurred after the death of Keith Moon and the Who's breakup in 1982 after years running on autopilot. Townshend wrote the contemplative, [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible abstract]], synth-heavy solo album "All The Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes".
