Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Hollow Life - Korn Hollow 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

102 Rain - Hollywood Undead Rain - 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

103 Asleep - The Smiths Asleep - The Smiths

This song has many meanings to different people. To me it is talking about suicide and a want to die.

104 The Gift - Seether The Gift - Seether

This song is amazing it's about a man who kills a girl in a crash and visits her gave and feels so much remorse

105 Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad - Def Leppard
106 Times Like These - Foo Fighters Times Like These - Foo Fighters
107 Timothy - The Buoys Timothy - The Buoys

3 men are trapped in a coal mine cave-in.
Two of them kill and eat the third to survive.

108 The Infection - Disturbed The Infection - Disturbed
109 Not Alone - Linkin Park Not Alone - Linkin Park

They've made the song for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti :(

112 Road to Nowhere - Bullet for My Valentine Road to Nowhere - Bullet for My Valentine V 1 Comment

You have to listen to understand how much pain is in this song

How is this not higher in the list?

114 Fix You - Coldplay Fix You - Coldplay V 1 Comment
115 Disappear - Dream Theater Disappear - Dream Theater

The song is about a man losing his wife and saying farewell. The woman he loved is now far away and he tries to accept it and move on. The powerful lyrics combined with dark melodies constitutes one of the saddest songs I have listened to.
"I gave you my hand
I said it's okay letting go time to leave here
And I'll carry on
The best that I can without you here beside me"

116 Somewhere - Within Temptation Somewhere - Within Temptation

Quite a sad song that should be listened to when you need to cry

117 Fight to Forget - Red Fight to Forget - Red
118 Diluted - Slipknot Diluted - Slipknot

This isn't really a sad song, it's more about hate

119 A Knife Called Lust - Hollywood Undead A Knife Called Lust - Hollywood Undead
120 The Temptation That Is You - The Saddest Landscape
