I think this song gets way too much undeserved hate.

The main criticisms I see is that it's "too simplistic" and "doesn't delve into the many conflicting feelings and emotions of a depressed/suicidal person".

It's literally a 3-4 minute pop song, it's not a 200 page psychology thesis.

Might as well just be rapping about drugs, guns, and sex right? Fuck him for trying to do something good

As someone who has been depressed with suicidal thoughts, this song touches my soul.

I hate this song. it would always come on at the worst times and put terrible lines into my head like "I just wanna die today."
I don't care if the song "ends on a good note" I never stuck around to cry for 3 minutes straight to "Get to the good part" it just upset me every time.

And I don’t get it. It’s a song that raises awareness for a serious issue and tries to offer help.

yeah that's silly, it's not supposed to be an essay. It's supposed to raise awareness and encourage people to get help which obviously worked

My main qualm with it is that it’s just not a good song. I LOVE pop music, it’s all I listen to; but composition wise this song sounds like it was slapped together in 5 minutes by a B-list songwriter.

Loved the awareness it brought it to mental health but I listened once and have no interest in hearing it again.

Listen to I'm sorry by Joyner Lucas, you'll end up crying by the end

There's more depth in the last verse of The Message than in Logic's entire career. It can be done, if you're good.
