For my experience artwork with a morbid theme often tends to be a lot more interesting than those with 'standard' themes. In order to create such a morbid piece there must be some strong inspiration behind it as people don't often wake up thinking "Hmm, time to write a song about death and suicide!" unless they've been driven to a place by events in their life which would lead them to feel this way, so the emotion that goes into these pieces often feels a lot more real and relatable than the the standard themes of love and such. That's not to say that pieces based on love can't have the same impact, but with the amount of work produced nowadays sharing this common theme due to it arguably an area that's pretty easy to write generically about, it just doesn't feel as personal or involved from the creator as it could do.
