The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Coma White - Marilyn Manson
82Man That You Fear - Marilyn Manson
83End of the Night - The Doors
84Comin' Back to Me - Jefferson Airplane
85Zombie - The Cranberries

I love this song though this isn't a sad song.

It's almost nihilistic in it's approach.

86Vex & Siolence - Ministry
87Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots

This song proves just how sorrowful pondering your thoughts really can be. This song goes where most don't. Its very helpful to feel better, even though it hints to suicide at some point...

I love how this band is so different from everyone else. Their lyrics are very symbolic and have deep meaning. This song is true and relatable.

I absolutely love this song and memorized all the lyrics by the time I listened to it for the 2nd time

Two happy boys.

88The Hills - The Weeknd

Sad story if You listen it's about drugs

89Morning On Earth - Pain of Salvation
90Buying New Soul - Porcupine Tree
91All I Need - Radiohead

I dunno I always thought of this song as a somber yet really sweet song. I just can't think of it as depressing. I love it though.

92Forever Lost - God Is an Astronaut
93Lost Control - Anathema
94The Eternal - Joy Division

My pressing the play button is a... stab... through my own heart. The sky darkens. I feel alone. I'm transported onto a bald mountaintop of dark stone. The clouds engulf my vision. Whatever. I'm possessed by the depressingness of this song. And I don't understand why there isn't at least 15 Joy Division songs in this countdown. - PinkflASHES

This is my favourite song of all time, along with Milk by Kings Of Leon and Disintegrstion by the Cure. This song is so haunting and beautiful.

95Give Me Love - Ed Sheeran

Give Me Love is one of those somgs that you can listen to without saying a word. Its so beautiful and its beauty kind of masks the sadness behind it.

This is the one song that I listen to on repet when I'm depressed. I don't know why but it tends to calm me down because it makes me feel someone else understands how I feel.

The only depressing thing about end sheeran if how bad he is. - gemcloben

97How to Save a Life - The Fray

It's about suicide it makes me cry and think about of things I've lost in my life

Beautiful song. Definitely makes you think and can hit you right in the heart

98Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead

This one deserves the spot better than "Creep", agh I guess its because is most well know than this one.

99Rock Bottom - Eminem
100Drugs Don't Work - The Verve

The singer is singing about his wife being destroyed slowly by anti depressants and you can hear his distain and the country twang that hits home. -

This should be higher up, the lyrics can speak to anyone.
