Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Tourniquet - Evanescence

This song got me through so much. Explained my life completely

62Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin

When I was 10 years old I was diagnosed with depression. It was a really hard time for me. one day I discover the song while browsing on Spotify. I always knew breaking Benjamin and I always love this song. If you listen closely to the lyrics of the song you can really get the idea of how much emotion was put into this. It's also sad because it bring that past memories that I always try to forget. At the same time it's happy because it feels like a chance of living and that reminds me that my life has meaning. No matter what happened the song always made me cry.

The best song, it has great guitar in the chorus but still maintains a rock sad song. Which proved not all sad rock songs have to be acoustic. This song kept me Alive, I thought of ending everything!

Love this song. One of the worst feelings in the world is when you're trying to help somebody, but nothing you can say or do will ever get through to them, because they don't realize there's anything wrong.

67Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold

This song deserves top 10, it is about the lead singer and his drummer being such best friend and the drummer knowing he could not go on much longer, it is his suicide note to the world

This should be in top 10 along with so far away! Absolutely the best songs ever!

This song deserves a higher place

This song deserves to be much higher!

68Cancer - My Chemical Romance

My mom died of cancer, my wife left me on the anniversary of her death, two days before my dad's birthday and thirty days after my grandmother died. I played this song for a month, thinking of my mom.

69Hate Me - Blue October

Listen to it and acutely listen to the lyrics. It is very deep, because it is not a break up, its about a death.

You listen to the beat and you're like "Oh, what a nice, happy song! " then you listen to the lyrics and reality hits you.

His voice at the beginning just so honest and match the acoustic then completed it with a crying like voice in the chorus.. Pure genius.

The lyrics are simply beautiful, Matthew Bellamy is a pure lyrical genius

The first time I heard it, I was like: what in the hell is this?! It would probably make you cry like a baby.
