Just the BEST voice around here...

23Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

My favorite song of all the times

24Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

It delivers a positive message in a sad and powerful song...The way it expresses the feelings is unique...It deserves higher place for sure

25Vermillion Pt.2 - Slipknot

Honestly, if more popular songs had been on Vol. 3, this song might be more respected than snuff for being truly sad

Way sadder than snuff but danger keep away is another level

Much more sad than Snuff, just less popular.

28Heartbeat Slowing Down - All-American Rejects
29Through Glass - Stone Sour

Through Glass is a song about slowly fading away into the unknown.. Where your friends or family become distant, and you are left wondering why it couldn't be like the good old days. I can highly relate, and highly recommend through glass by stone sour.

I litterally cryed when I heard this song its so sad you need to listen to this

30Broken - Seether

I always listen by heart this song cause I'm broken.

31November Rain - Guns N' Roses

This one is supposed to be in the top 10

32Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
33The Unforgiven II - Metallica

The unforgiven too is (just like the first unforgiven) a very slow and sad song that anyone can relate to.

34Fade to Black - Metallica

This was my favorite song for most of my teenage years.

This should be number 1! damn this song can make me feel

The most depressing song of all time

Truly a masterpiece that should be number one

35Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Black bird is hard rock at its very best... It's a shame people haven't even heard of it... It's outburst of emotions... Its about a friend who passed away long time ago... Total masterpiece

Just listen once and ask yourself where this should be in this list

38Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

This song deserves to be at the top, gets you right there

This deserves to be in the top ten. A great but depressing song.

The lyrical genius of Trent Reznor amazes me.

39Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Pleading with illness, could even relate to loss. "Faceless enemy" you can't really fight an enemy if it doesn't have a mind or will to fight against. When helpless, we go to pleading.

Yeah this one but where is Never too late by Three Days Grace though?

Always felt like this song described me from 14-17. Still love this song.

This song is heart wrenching in an amazing way. I love it so much.
