* By 1970, Music/SlyAndTheFamilyStone was on a nearly two-year hiatus that spawned a stopgap singles compilation. Previously, they played upbeat psychedelic funk and sang about unity and dismantling barriers, being also one of the few multiracial/multigendered bands of TheSixties. The band's successful breakout album, ''Stand!'', had big shoes to fill and the Family Stone was expected to release a follow-up as vibrant and passionate as ''Stand!'' Unfortunately, Sly Stone developed drug problems and that, along with the turmoil of [[TheSeventies Vietnam-era America]], was enough for Sly to build his own studio, play most of the instruments himself or with friends (as opposed to all the band members playing on ''Stand!''), and record most of his vocals while lying in bed. The resulting record, ''There's A Riot Going On'', was a dark and depressing record that was somewhat the opposite of ''Stand!''. The record would later be acclaimed as the band's masterpiece.
* Singer/songwriter E, leader of the band Music/{{Eels}}, wrote ''Electro-Shock Blues'', arguably the band's best album, after the death of his mother from cancer and his sister's subsequent suicide. The album included poetry that his sister had written while in a mental hospital and included songs with titles like "Going to Your Funeral" and "Cancer for the Cure". The last track, however, was an upbeat number about learning to move on with life.
** Even before ''Electroshock Blues'', there was "Not Ready Yet", which was about his sister (the same one much of ''Electroshock Blues'' itself was about) refusing to leave the house.

Added DiffLines:

* The sudden death of bassist Jimmy Fernandez from a brain tumor resulted in The God Machine's second-most acclaimed album, ''One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying''. The band were already broken up by the time the album was released thanks to Fernandez's sudden death. Lead singer Robin Proper-Sheppard later formed the {{slowcore}} band Sophia as a way of coping with Fernandez's death, which continues to release music to this day.

* Music/{{Badfinger}}'s 1975 album ''Head First'' was written in the shadow of the peak of band's legal and financial crises, a result of corrupt management and legal entanglements with their then-label, WarnerBrosRecords; the album had been [[ScrewedByTheLawyers shelved until 2000]] as $100,000 was found missing from a Badfinger escrow account. The band had already seen guitarist Joey Molland leave (to be replaced by keyboardist/vocalist Bob Jackson), and three of the album's songs dealt with their money/management woes quite blatantly. Not long after, vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Pete Ham [[DrivenToSuicide would hang himself]] in the basement of his house, effectly putting an end to the band until 1977's ''Airwaves'' album.

* Music/{{B52s}}. In 1985, guitarist Ricky Wilson was dying from AIDS and decided to confide it to Keith Strickland and no one else. Late that year, he died. Wilson's sister Cindy didn't find out he had AIDS until about three days before he died. Let's say that no one took Ricky's death well....

* Country singer and songwriter Music/TaylorSwift admitted that all her self-written songs were inspired by real life experiences, saying that "If you listen to my albums, it's like reading my diary". Then tag the fact that almost all of her songs were about relationships with people (both friendly and romantic) with whom she parted ways.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, their album ''.5: The Gray Chapter'' was their first released after the death of founding bassist Paul Gray, and a great deal of the lyrics on the album reflect the feelings of anger, grief, and guilt the band collectively felt in the aftermath.

**After the birth of his first child, Townsend was burnt out from touring. As a way to clear his head, he worked on a solo album - solo meaning "playing ''every'' intstrument on the record." The result was ZiltoidTheOmniscient.

* After the fatal drug overdose of a friend, Music/MinorThreat leader Ian [=McKaye=] wrote the anti-drug anthem "Straight Edge", which spawned the well-known StraightEdge movement, which was not only anti-drug, but also [[NoSexAllowed anti-promiscuity]], anti-alcohol, and sometimes, [[AnimalWrongsGroup anti-meat]]. That was not what Ian had in mind when he wrote the song.

* {{Trance}} producer RAM's first full length artist album "Forever Love", and its lead single "[=RAMelia=]: Tribute to Amelia" (a [[{{Tearjerker}} truly heartwrenching]] GriefSong), was made with (in his own words) the whirlwind of emotions he went through when his beloved wife Amelia passed away.
