The Contenders: Page 7

121 The Lost Child - Anathema The Lost Child - Anathema
122 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth In 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.
