Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Hollow 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

102Rain - 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:
Rain
Bullet
Sing
I'll Be There
Ghost

103Asleep - The Smiths

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

104Times Like These - Foo Fighters
105Timothy - The Buoys

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

106The Infection - Disturbed
107Not Alone - Linkin Park

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

108Fake Plastic Trees - RadioheadV1 Comment
109Anthem of the Angels - Breaking Benjamin
110Road to Nowhere - Bullet for My ValentineV1 Comment
111Hospital for Souls - Bring Me the Horizon

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

How is this not higher in the list?

112Fix You - ColdplayV1 Comment
113Disappear - 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"

114Somewhere - Within Temptation

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

115Fight to Forget - Red
116Diluted - Slipknot

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

117A Knife Called Lust - Hollywood Undead
118The Temptation That Is You - The Saddest Landscape
119The Lost Child - Anathema
120In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

The type of overwhelming despair and fiery anger that combine to form this song--- it screams out that even though your ship is sinking, your taking everyone that's ever hurt you down with it.

How is this not higher dave pours his heart in this song and it is a song that many people feel in their daily lives since we live in such a selfish world

It may not "feel" sad, but knowing the background, it is pretty sad.
