Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Ohne 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.

82Crimson Day - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this song is more encouraging than sad actually

83Heart-Shaped Box - Nirvana
84Remember Everything - Five Finger Death Punch

How was the song so low on the list?! God I cried do this every night!

Even if you don't like metal AT ALL, this song grabs the feels and makes you cry.

One of the greatest songs I have ever heard. Enough said.

79th?! Really? One of the saddest songs in existence

85Yesterday - The Beatles
86How to Save a Life - The Fray

This song is about not only loss but regret. It brings to mind past mistakes that one made and how difficult or impossible it is to correct past wrongs.
It reminds me of lost love and the loss of loved ones. Its awesome.

87Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails
88Still Loving You - Scorpions
89Win Some, Lose Some - Robbie Williams
90Lost It All - Black Veil Brides

It is an amazing song about losing everything you care about and feeling hopeless. It vocalizes depressions and explains the struggles people have to feel like they are useful.

This song has helped me so much trough my depression its powerful and is amazing

Why isn't this song higher on the list?
I love this so much
its such a beautiful song

91Sorrow - Flyleaf

A truly amazing song.. The verses really describe depression. And the scream in the end is very powerful

92Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

It makes me crying and smiling at the same time when I hear that note.

It's not sad but... I love this song! Well maybe just a bit...

That first G-note always manages to make me cry. Even after 9 years.

93Hero of War - Rise Against

I believe this song hits like a train... I mean listen to the last verse; the one about the girl.

Whenever listens to this song always give me a goosebumps

Can't believe this isn't in the top five.

I cried when I first listened it...

94The 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.

98Where Do We Draw the Line - Poets of the Fall
99Hollow Life - Korn

Korn has always been my favorite band and I love each and every one if their songs because I can relate to almost all of them.. But this is in my top 3 favorites I can't even explain it but jonathans voice and the lyrics make this song true badassery

100Rain - Hollywood Undead

I can't believe that Rain isn't in the top ten. This is definitely the one of the saddest rock songs I've heard. I wish there were more like it.

If there are lyrics that can literally make you cry, these are the ones.

Why isn't this at the top? Has anyone bothered to hear it? It's beautiful! These songs are a story in of themselves, just listen to them in the right order and maybe you'll rethink it all. Order:
I'll Be There
