102Black - Pearl Jam

Some of Eddie Vedder's best lyrics, so sad and a powerful delivery about a man who lost everything in his life.

103The Unforgiven II - Metallica

Isn't the point of the whole song depressing?

104No Surprises - Radiohead

A song that whispers of just giving up silently to a quiet, tired end. It's so gently depressing.

Possibly my favorite song of all time, but man is it depressing! - mtndewlord

The song and the music video both make me cry.

105The Loss - Hollywood Undead

Sad song with a true story. Makes me cry every time.

Favorite band such a sad song if you think about the lyrics

106Would It Matter - Skillet

Skillet is my favorite band and some of there songs it really hard. Just like "Would It Matter" another song by them "The Last Night" means a lot to me too. They both have helped me through a lot. I owe a lot to Skillet.

The most lovely depressing song ever!

SO depressing for me at least.

it should relate to everyone ever.

107Dead and Gone - T.I.
108Rhinocerous - Smashing Pumpkins

The whole sound of the song is spacy and depressing and corgan adds a wonderful touch of anger to the depression. -

109Hate Me - Blue October

This song is filled with nothing but pure, utter self-hatred. It is the one of the only songs in the world that can literally bring tears to my eyes. The absolute sadness and remorse that poors out of the lyrics from this song are enough to make anyone feel down. This song deserves to be at least in the top 10

The fact that this song is not in the top 5 is beyond me. This is one of if not the saddest song I have ever heard. Beautiful song.

This has to be one of the most depressing songs out there.
He wrote this song for his mother.

So much despair here...

A song about being so broken hearted you can barely breathe... Yet little by little it gets better.

111The Man Who Can't Be Moved - The Script

Never listened to full song

112My Immortal - Evanescence

This is the first song that I liked. I listen to this song whenever I'm depressed.

This song My Immortal from Evanescence would often remind me of the Tim Burton movie Dark Shadows, where Barnabas Collins is reminded by Victoria Winters as his lost love, Josette.

It doesn't make me cry, though.

113Cancer - My Chemical Romance

Singer Gerard Way's lyrical skill is really shown in this song, how the raw emotion is portrayed through every word. The song tells a very deep and depressing story of a person dying of cancer, who refuses to say goodbye to the person he loves because he finds it too hard. It is not just the lyrical content of this song but also the melody itself which makes this song so deeply depressing.

Such a Sad song. Cancer is a hard thing describe he does it perfectly.

114Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley
115Sleepwalking - Bring Me the Horizon

I love this song but I don't get how its depressing

I cries every time I heard to this song it goes through my soul and I could hear it everyday (( I usually put it on repeat )) I really could relate to this depressing song. besides Bmth is my favorite band ever

BMTH is my favorite band but personally I find Hospital For Souls more depressing thatn Sleepwalking even though I love this song

116Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5
117Motion Picture Soundtrack - Radiohead

Kid A feels like one big song sometimes, and among the likes of "How to Disappear Completely" and "Idioteque," this song can be missed. It is subtlety brilliant in it's atmosphere, and when the second half of the song begins, you are left in a contemplative state of wonder.

118Million Questions - Patrick JorgensenV2 Comments
119Indian Sunset - Elton John
120Johnny Wanna Live - Sandra

See the video - you would see what they do with animals. It's disaster
