88 The Hills - The Weeknd

Sad story if You listen it's about drugs

The song itself isn't so sad but the music video is just depressing. I mean he looks sad as hell in the video.

At the start of the video, the car he drove is upside down which means he crashed it. But though it's dark and decent it's not really The Weeknd's best. 3.5/5 - AlphaQ

89 Morning On Earth - Pain of Salvation
90 All I Need - Radiohead

I dunno I always thought of this song as a somber yet really sweet song. I just can't think of it as depressing. I love it though.

91 Forever Lost - God Is an Astronaut
92 Lost Control - Anathema
93 Redemption Song - Bob Marley
94 Because of You - Kelly Clarkson

Love it. I sing to it every time I am sad.

Love this song

I really don't like this song. Mm-mm. No, I don't.


95 Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots

This song proves just how sorrowful pondering your thoughts really can be. This song goes where most don't. Its very helpful to feel better, even though it hints to suicide at some point...

I love how this band is so different from everyone else. Their lyrics are very symbolic and have deep meaning. This song is true and relatable.

I absolutely love this song and memorized all the lyrics by the time I listened to it for the 2nd time

Two happy boys.

96 How to Save a Life - The Fray

It's about suicide it makes me cry and think about of things I've lost in my life

Beautiful song. Definitely makes you think and can hit you right in the heart

97 The Eternal - Joy Division

My pressing the play button is a... stab... through my own heart. The sky darkens. I feel alone. I'm transported onto a bald mountaintop of dark stone. The clouds engulf my vision. Whatever. I'm possessed by the depressingness of this song. And I don't understand why there isn't at least 15 Joy Division songs in this countdown. - PinkflASHES

This is my favourite song of all time, along with Milk by Kings Of Leon and Disintegrstion by the Cure. This song is so haunting and beautiful.

98 Rock Bottom - Eminem

This is probably the song that deserves to be on top of the list

This should be #1 followed and razorblade by blue october should be #2 not sam smith

99 Give Me Love - Ed Sheeran

Give Me Love is one of those somgs that you can listen to without saying a word. Its so beautiful and its beauty kind of masks the sadness behind it.

This is the one song that I listen to on repet when I'm depressed. I don't know why but it tends to calm me down because it makes me feel someone else understands how I feel.

The only depressing thing about end sheeran if how bad he is. - gemcloben
