Strong Reference to Smoking

The whole song is referencing smoking quite strongly. This may not be very evident at first listen, but when you listen to the line "breathing in the chemicals", you can understand why.

Imagine Dragons is one of those bands that have captured my attention

They really know how to make songs that will get stuck in your head. Ever since I heard their first single, It's Time, I fell in love with the band and their music. I bought their album and kept listening to it. This song, Demons, is by far one of my favorites that I have heard from them. It is a very emotional song and the music video itself is a tearjerker itself. If they keep making great songs like this, they'll definitely be around for a quite a while.

Powerful, fantastic rock ballad explores inner demons

Imagine Dragons is proving itself to be quite a fantastic band, with "Demons" becoming an instant hit along with their chart-topping single "Radioactive". This song contains very heartfelt themes about facing one's inner demons and recognizing how they can destroy not only the person burdened with them, but also the people closest to the tormented individual. Candid and stark without being graphic (only one use of the word "hell", used in a religious context), this song is excellent for teens, teens, and adults all facing the pain of growing up and having to deal with their naturally conflicting natures.

this is the next genreation

i think you are over reacting. "hell" isn't much of a bad word, and this song, much of others done by imagine dragons, is real art, it's better than the popular party music and expresses real, true emotion. any one who chooses a song about sex or drugs or parties is a bad person. this is emotion, i am emotion, this is music.

Nothing innapropriate.

Yes, there's one use of "the h- word", but it is in the sense of the place, not a swear. This song is kind of emotional, it's not a happy tune, but you could probably figure that out from the title. Anyone who's faced some difficulty in their life can relate to this song.

Great song!

I really like this song. Though it's a little emotional, it's appropriate for tweens and up.

Great Band, Great Music

I'm not gonna lie this is one of the best songs, definitely school appropriate for the message it is sending is good for everyone. This is one of the songs I've been hearing sense Radioactive first hit radios. The lyrics "But I'm Hellbound" isn't really inappropriate its more or less saying how your innerdemons can, and will drag you into doing bad things and, for the more religious people I assume (im sorry if I just insulted you I'm not that that religious) it means your on the road to hell.
