Don't fear the reaper, by Blue Oyster Cult. Here reproduced rather appropriately (if a bit grotesquely) in the opening sequence of the otherwise-unremarkable miniseries based on Stephen King's The Stand

Something about this song still sends shivers down my spine after all these years...

"40,000 men and women everyday, 'nuther 40,000 comin' after them...we can be like them, come on baby..."

My internet gleanings tell me you are correct...supposedly its vaguely about suicide. The number "40,000" was picked off the top of the song-writer's head as a random guess as to how many people kill themselves every day.
