Top 10 Best Depressing Rock-Metal SongsThe most depressing songs from incredible artists like Yngwie Malmsteen and Dragonforce
The Top Ten
"Don't give in,
Without a fight"
This is a great song.
"Hey You" is actually the first Pink Floyd song iv'e ever heard - Ajkloth
Amazing vocals - could be one of the best vocal performances of all time.
These are my last words-I need to rest
In fear and anger, I'll lay down my head
A faithless spirit in a broken man
Don't wait for me on the other side
It’s about a father, who’s newborn child was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and in his thoughts he rejects the baby.
It's a very dark but beautiful ballad with awesome vocals and lyrics. People with Down Syndrome find the song actually touching.
"(Please tell me why)
I don't wanna hold you
(Please tell me why)
I don't wanna see you
'Cause even your smile hurts
Oh, it hurts like hell"
This is truly a pure masterpiece by Malmsteen. The melodic interlude in the middle makes for incredible outpouring of feelings.
Black Star (Yngwie) may have more depressing potential than Opus 5 in my opinion, and also Voice of the Soul (Death, Chuck Schuldiner instrumental).
This is a masterpiece for sure but it's never been depressing to me.
I'm not sure this song is really depressing but it's very individual I guess.
James Hetfield wrote this love song while he was on the phone with his then girlfriend. The lyrics, which talk about being "so close, no matter how far" indicate the bond they shared even when Hetfield was on tour.
This song is about the power of love (and many other things).
The best vocals I've ever heard - this guy is unbelievable!
In a world of broken dreams
Depressed and haunting me
No way out
So many times it's hopeless dark and gray
No way out
And other times it's hope that saves the day
Great song and I love it. But it always reminds me of my mother dying - sextysex
A greater darkness for all it's worth
A friend so young who's life was cut
We drink the rain to clear our throats
We drink the poison to make it go
How is this only number 53 on the list? What's worse than being forced to live the rest of your life without the ability to see, hear, or communicate while living with physical and psychological pain? What's worse than being forced to stay alive when your quality of life is so diminished that the only thing you can do is think? The music video is haunting too.
