41 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

How can you not vote for this, aside from the perfect guitar melody, it tells a very sad heart-touching story

This song just pulls at my heart. I became a Green Day fan when I first heard it.

The song about Billies father dying, ugh feels

Another good choice is "21 Guns", but I agree with this one.

58 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Depressing? Well, I could understand a bit, the lyrics are about Eleanor Rigby dying in a church... - kaitlynrad11

This song means the world to me I don't know why it just does the lyrics are so crazy.
