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

123 Everytime - Britney Spears Everytime - Britney Spears
124 Gouge Away - Pixies Gouge Away - Pixies

126 With or Without You - U2 With or Without You - U2 V 2 Comments
127 Turn the Page - Metallica Turn the Page - Metallica
128 Bullet - Hollywood Undead Bullet - Hollywood Undead

Suicide is so hard to describe. They portray the thoughts before it why they did it so perfectly.

This song makes me realize I'm not the only person in this world with "problems"

It's about suicide. How could you not cry?

Oh my god this is my favorite song

130 Small Bump - Ed Sheeran Small Bump - Ed Sheeran

Sad. Abortion is the worst thing to right about. The fact he had the strength to write this let alone sing this amazed me.

131 All by Myself - Eric Carmen All by Myself - Eric Carmen
132 Make It Stop - Rise Against Make It Stop - Rise Against V 1 Comment
133 Suicide Is Painless - The Mash Suicide Is Painless - The Mash

For this to not be on the list is blasphemy. Just look at the lyrics: The game of life is hard to play, I'm gonna lose it anyway, The losing card I'll someday lay, so this is all I have to say. One of the first songs about suicide, and yet stunningly realistic today.

134 45 - Shinedown 45 - Shinedown
135 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

This is a one of those truthful songs about the pain of falling in love. It has a beautiful story about love, loss, and how people handle it.
The lyrics are so well written and beautiful. They are also very truthful. "Don't fall in love there's just too much to lose."

Sad about his wife dying and him having to care for the child alone

One of the saddest songs I've ever listened to. Gets me every time.

I cry every single time

136 Street Spirit - Radiohead Street Spirit - Radiohead

I'm surprised this is so low on this list. This is honestly one of the most depressing songs I have ever heard.

There is just no hope in this song, but yet still perfect!

The dark tunnel without the light at the end

137 9 Crimes - Damien Rice 9 Crimes - Damien Rice

I heard this in Shrek The Third. Ah, well. I don't remember now. I was little back then.

Such a powerful song... Its lyrics make my heart cringe in sadness... at least deserves top 20...

138 Save Me from Myself - Brian "Head" Welch Save Me from Myself - Brian

This song is just about the most depressing song I have ever heard. It talks about how as long as there is something you believe in, you have a meaning to live. Truly beautiful and inspiring to those who believe in God AND to individuals who just want a meaning in their lives.

Such a sad song by one of the guitarists of Korn.

139 Locked Away - R. City Locked Away - R. City

Story of my life, pretty much:
"If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly
Would you still love me the same? "
"A gal I know that I can trust..."
"Cause I need a gal who's always by my side..."
And even though the music is upbeat and happy, the lyrics got me.

140 Landslide - Fleetwood Mac Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
