Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Lost Control - Anathema
82 End of the Night - The Doors
83 Comin' Back to Me - Jefferson Airplane
84 Zombie - The Cranberries

I love this song though this isn't a sad song.

It's almost nihilistic in it's approach.

85 Vex & Siolence - Ministry
86 Morning On Earth - Pain of Salvation
87 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.

88 Forever Lost - God Is an Astronaut
89 Adam's Song - Blink 182

Really?! No Blink 182 Adams Song?! Whats more depressing than a teenager contemplating bout suicide?! Not much, plus the history of this song is heartbreaking. Should at least be in top fifteen. Check out Adam Krieger suicide letter

This song really deserves a higher spot on the list. One of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard.

This is a suicide note in song form

Heartbreak every time it comes on

90 Cancer - My Chemical Romance

Singer Gerard Way's lyrical skill is really shown in this song, how the raw emotion is portrayed through every word. The song tells a very deep and depressing story of a person dying of cancer, who refuses to say goodbye to the person he loves because he finds it too hard. It is not just the lyrical content of this song but also the melody itself which makes this song so deeply depressing.

Love this song its amazing at making you thing of your current state of mind

Such a Sad song. Cancer is a hard thing describe he does it perfectly.

This is a really sad song, but I really enjoy it

91 Blind Actor - Detlef

This guy is amazing.
He is from Latvia and very very underrated.

93 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.

94 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.

95 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

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

99 Street Spirit - Radiohead

I'm surprised this is so low on this list. This is honestly one of the most depressing songs I have ever heard.

There is just no hope in this song, but yet still perfect!

The dark tunnel without the light at the end

Most depressing song I've ever heard...
We are going to extinct, and it may happen in different ways, all caused by ourselves (i. E pollution, a robot rebellion) - dieghe98

100 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
