The Top Ten Most Heartbreaking Emo Songs of the 2000s

Cancer - My Chemical Romance

Dude this song is so somberful I love it - Manlypants

Any My Chem fan knows that this had to be on the list. It is a heartbreaking love story that makes us (or at least me) tear up. Every. Single. Time. "I will not kiss you. Cause' the hardest part of this is leaving you." So sad! - emomusic

It makes you want to cry.

Golden - Fall Out Boy

This isn't as known when it comes to Fall Out Boy. But it should be. This is from the album "Infinity on High" and I love it! The chorus is so beautiful. "All the mothers raised their babies to stay away from me." - emomusic

House of Gold - Twenty One Pilots

i hate this place so much - Pato_cargo

I guess you mean this is not from the 2000's and it is not emo but what does the statement about TOP mean? - Powell

The lyrics and ukulele are the two best parts of this song. The chorus: "she asked me son when I grow old, will you buy me a house of gold" is so heartbreaking and beautiful. Highly recommend this song! - emomusic

My Immortal - Evanescence

Oh my god. The vocals. Just listen to it! It's amazing! And the lyrics! "These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real. There's just too much that time cannot erase" So amazing! - emomusic

The Sound of Silence - Disturbed

Ugh. I don't even know where to start. Though it may not really be an 'emo' song, it deserves it's place. The vocals are so incredible, and the cellos in the background are just beautiful. This is sung by a heavy metal artist, which impresses the heck out of me. And the gentle timbre is just ugh... so PRETTY! - emomusic

Farthest thing from emo, and a more or less terrible cover of a timeless classic. - Sop


Misguided Ghosts - Paramore

The acoustic guitar. Just the acoustic guitar. Listen to it and you'll know what I mean. "And run from them, from them, with no direction. We'll run from them, from them with no conviction. Cause' I'm just one of those ghosts." My god. "Brand New Eyes" is just one of those albums. - emomusic

Impossible Year - Panic! At the Disco

It has a classic blues-ish feel. And the lyrics are meaningful. "There's no sunshine, there's no you and me, there's no good times this impossible year." It is so gentle and so different from the usual Panic! but in the best way. - emomusic

All I Wanted - Paramore

"Think of me when you're out there." The opening line to the song, sets the mood for the song, then when the electric guitar opens the next verse, the beauty continues, because of the lyrics. "All I Wanted" is a great song. - emomusic


House of Memories - Panic! At the Disco

It may not be as gentle, and minor chord-filled, but if you listen to the lyrics, and it's meaning, you will see the place it deserves on this list. "And when your fantasies become your legacy, promise me a place in in the house of memories." And the opening line "If you're a lover you should know, the lonely moments just get lonelier the longer you're in love, than if you were alone." - emomusic

Sorry - Sleeping with Sirens

It's a break-up song. It has to be pretty. I can't help but love it. "If I ever let you down... I'm sorry." The sadness in that line and many others is why it ends up on this list. - emomusic
