44Losing You - Dead by April

This song should be given a reward for the saddest song ever. Do you know what it's like to lose someone you love more than yourself? This song showcases it all, it makes everybody who have lost someone whom they loved dearly cry. Very very touching lyrics with beautiful vocals and screams of sorrow with chill-giving melodies, just AWESOME. It has been two years since I have know this song and I still love it, as if I'm listening to this song for the first time. This song earns my full respect, other people should learn to respect this band/song, because they're on of the few bands that make so unique and touchy songs. Please support them :) By the way this song rocks.

This is the only song that makes me cry every time I listen to it. Never listened to such an awesome song, it makes me think of how I was slowly losing my love. Such awesome singing, great melody and the screams are just epic, every time I listen to the screams in this song it makes me cry. It makes me think of how I was begging my love to stay. This song has such great lyrics, it makes you cry when you only read it. Please vote for this song. This is the best EPIC sad song I've ever heard

Psychedelic sounding for a grunge band. Just the feeling you get when you want the world to be sucked up. Wow. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

It's a beautiful song that's perfectly listenable, but man, the feels.

47In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

This song brings about a flood of tears. Don't try listening to it in public. The lyrics, the music and the vocals are all very moving. It will make you mourn the loss of a loved one, a mentor, a friend or miss any good times from your past. I listen to it whenever I feel the need to cry and release any suppressed emotions.

This song is the summary of everything that mark tremonty could feel when he lost his mother, that everyone could feel when we lost someone

How is this not in the top 10! Beautiful song full of raw emotion.

48Acid Rain - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is the manifestation of passing away. Absolutely stunning, and beautiful.

49Man That You Fear - Marilyn Manson

Song that describes how Manson turned into what he is now. Definitely give it a listen. It's very gloomy.

50Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

The second time I heard it, I was actually listening to the lyrics and I started crying. Its such a sad heart-felt song about a father teaching his son about heartbreak.

By far the saddest song ever. Has much truth within with the lyrics with so much emotion and along with a heart breaking melody. I think it should be in the top 5 or top 10.

Why is this song not higher on the list? The only song in existence that moved me to tears, all the other ones are just depressing

This song should be higher on the list

51Don't Go - Bring Me the Horizon

Oli is one of those singers that have pure emotion in their voices. I think this song should be higher in the list. It was written about Oli's cousin and cousin's friends who murdered Oli's friend.

This is one of those songs that really hit you hard. It was in my playlist even though I had never heard it before, and now its one of the songs I've listened to the most.

A lot of Bring Me The Horizon songs have a lot of emotion but this song has a special place in my heart.

This is by far the greatest song ever.
