The point of this was to show how easy it is to make a pop hit, even one with "some emotion."
I don't like Tori Amos, for example; she's obvious and manipulative. But her songs manage two emotions at once and to the inexperienced listener, have a sense of gravitas or emotional importance.
Even some of the more advance tracks, like later Sepultura, manipulate...
Then there are the ones that just tell stories with high energy, like a Robert E. Howard or Edgar Rice Burroughs. That's early Sepultura, early Slayer, early Massacra, Bathory, Emperor, early Burzum (before he became propagandiste), most of 1990s death metal...
I think I'll take that over conscious manipulation of the listener.
The best metal is without consciousness of creator or listener. It's just a good story for a human being of a certain type, a spirit we might call virile and yet compassionately ethical in a consequentialist yet structuralist way.
And, of course: sodomy.
