Top Ten Most Depressing Songs

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Song Cry - Jay-Z V 1 Comment
162 Dream On - Aerosmith

I always tear up whe I listen to this. Steven Tylers voice sounds so sad and destroyed. One of the greats

163 Kettering - The Antlers

How is this not here? One of the most haunting and depressing songs to ever exist, the story of a ward nurse falling in love with a dying patient is absolutely gut-wrenchingly heartbreaking, should be top 10 at least.

The whole album is heart breaking I honestly cry through the whole album over and over on repeat. I love it so much but it kills me

164 Hello - Adele V 2 Comments
165 Don't Laugh at Me - Peter Paul and Mary
166 U - Kendrick Lamar

Struggles of alcoholism, Kendrick really opens your eyes

167 Them Bones - Alice in Chains
168 This Used to Be My Playground - Madonna

It's not TOO sad and depressing to me.

169 Disarm - Smashing Pumpkins

You can literally feel Corgans pain and anger towards his father and the simple set up and slow addition of the strings section deepen the sound to a sonic nirvana. -

This is a sad and very meaningful song, the first verse diarm you with a smile suggests corgan's desire to take every thing against him, and deflect it with love instead of anger. It tells a story about how one hopes to deal with hard things in life.

Very depressing yet such a beautiful song at the same time. Definitely should be in the top 10.

170 Papillon - The Airborne Toxic Event
171 Danger - Keep Away - Slipknot
172 Plastic Man - Seether

This song is just amazing, Shaun Morgan's vocals just add awesome addition to the song. A really meaningful song by Seether, this songs shows you should just be yourself and not some plastic guy who everyone likes, best to be yourself.

173 Blasphemous Rumours - Depeche Mode
174 The Ghost Woman and the Hunter - Lacuna Coil
175 The Rest of My Life - Less Than Jake
176 Youth of a Nation - P.O.D.
177 Lonely Day - System of a Down

I think that Soldier Side should be on this list but this song is equally sad and plays before it.

This song is so different to other System of a Down songs. Its hauntingly beautiful - Danielsun182

178 Into the Ocean - Blue October
179 Pieces - Sum 41

This song and Adam's Song need to be up higher.

Such a great song - Th3Zm0nst3r

180 In Pieces - Linkin Park
