Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cancer - 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.

70 Hate Me - Blue October Hate 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.

71 Bullet - Hollywood Undead Bullet - Hollywood Undead

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.

I call this song the happiest suicide song. its true though and it kinda makes you accept yourself

72 Ohne Dich - Rammstein Ohne Dich - Rammstein

It's so sad. If you love Rammstein (and actually care about them) I can guarantee the music video will make you cry, even though it's not real.

I think that Mutter is a sadder song than Ohne Dich, but it's great nonetheless.

73 Savior - Black Veil Brides Savior - Black Veil Brides

This song shows that they care, even though that at concerts they spit in the faces of there fans in the front row, they really care about them

It's such a sad song and it really shows they care about their fans.

I love this song so much it makes me cry every time.

LOVE black veil brides!

74 Falling Away with You - Muse Falling Away with You - Muse

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

75 The Sound of Silence - Disturbed The Sound of Silence - Disturbed

Not since Johnny Cash covered Hurt has anyone truly mastered a song the way Disturbed has with this. This can no longer be considered a Simon and Garfunkel song. It's a Disturbed song. And it's so sad and mournful, with just a note of anger that the original lacks.

Controversially better than the original in every way. Had every hair standing on my body the first time I listened to it. This song is perfect!

A cover of the song by Simon and Garfunkel but this guy's voice makes this song just as sad and beautiful.

77 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit

The robot spelling out his stage name is really not necessary but whatever

78 Cradled In Love - Poets of the Fall Cradled In Love - Poets of the Fall

"don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy, because your alive cradled in love" what a lyric and the vocal is amazing too. The way the singer sings the song is amazing. All n all this is one of the songs that will touch your heart. Trust me.

It's just amazing. Magical and evergreen. Will touch your heart whether you're in love or not

79 Losing My Religion - R.E.M. Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
80 Yours to Hold - Skillet Yours to Hold - Skillet

! I add this song to the list like 6 months ago, I'm glad to see that it has increased. I love to see people that had the same feeling listening this song. Believe me this is amazing, you'll cry every time you listen to it.

This is the saddest song ever, if you don't believe me hear it then, and you'll realize this is amazing.
The first time I heard it, I was like: what in the hell is this?! It would probably make you cry like a baby.

! This is so sad, this one shouldn't be down here. The saddest song I have ever heard. Believe me, this will make you cry like a little girl

Just give it a try, you'll notice it is sad as hell.
Probably it will make you cry.
