16 Inspiring Songs That Open Up About Mental Health
“Numb” by Linkin Park
A second Linkin Park song makes it onto the list. This one still has the same emotional impact as “Heavy.” The track “Numb” was released way back in 2004 but it is still one of the first songs that people think of in regards to relating to mental health. Its mainstream success helped spawn more conversations about mental health and it still remains important today. In 2018, it reached one billion views on YouTube. The video depicts a teenage girl struggling to fit in. Combined with lyrics like “I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there / Become so tired, so much more aware” and “I’m tired of being what you want me to be / Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface”, it is an iconic song that talks about important topics.
