Top Ten Most Tragic Deaths3anegroes
The Top Ten
This is definitely the most tragic death, we lost the biggest musician that walked on this earth. If it wasn't for him the Beatles would have never existed and we would never have other great musicians that John and the Beatles have inspired. I saw an interview with Chapman and he said that he killed John so he can take his fame. WHAT AN IDIOT! I hope a policeman shoots him 5 times in the back, so that he sees what it's like to die. Son of a bitch...
Mark Chapman, GO TO HELL. - rockerchic18
He was always reinventing himself because he had to do so. When listening to new music or some of his peers I wonder what his comments would have been. What would John do? - mgenet
There is no way any death could be more tragic then John's. He didn't deserve to die and was such an inspiration. He is one of the best songwriters of all time (Paul McCartney also being up there) and without him, music would be so much different. He was and still is an inspiration to the world of music. He is missed so much and I hope his dream of lifelong peace will come true. We love you, John! - TheCuteBeatleV 23 Comments
Whoever says that he was insane and killed himself is retarded. He had vitiligo and was victim of involuntary manslaughter, dummy
Definitely the best thing in music... Ever! He inspired, cared, and had a general love for all mankind. He truly lived to make the world a better place. There was nobody like him before, and there will be nobody as influential to come after.
When Michael died a little of me died with him. This literally was the sweetest man I knew, and my biggest inspiration
he was the true entertainer and energetice creator of all dance moves... he to me could have lived into his 100 birthday...V 7 Comments
RIP Kurt Cobain. My favorite Nirvana songs are
Smells like Teen Spirit, and Lithium - Trivium
R.I. P Kurt. I wish almost more than anything that I was alive when he was. His fame will never die out - Danielsun182
It's so hard to think that he really did it. How could nobody see or feel what he killed himself for? I bet if I were there, I could tell what he was going to do:(
The year he died was also the year that music creep Justin Bieber was born. - nko32V 9 Comments
I was stuck between jfk and 2pac. I chose jfk because even though tupac could change things through songs, jfk wanted to make real changes with laws. - jdsoaresfamily2
The last real president of the United States of America - Edric313
JFK was awesome and Steve Irwin was too. - moose4life19
Yes it was painful and sad but for his wife a lot because she was right next to him.V 4 Comments
A selfless and wonderful man, missed not only by those closest to him, but also fans of his music and generation of listeners. May he rest in peace.
Best singer ever. - Userguy44
I would trade all these guys to have Freddie back.
Nobody could ever replace King Mercury.
He was the greatest showman the world has ever witnessed.
I was never alive when he was but this guy has a huge effect on me. I would do anything for him to still be alive.V 8 Comments
I think Tupac is the most tragic because he was just getting popular everyone loved him and then he died it was not like John Lennon or Michael Jackson he was great his songs were really great I think he's also better than notorious big this is my opinion don't be mad
Nothing needs to be said about this man, truly the world didn't deserve his sacrifices
His songs are masterpieces
Tupac may have had some bad things about him but at the end of the day he changed people through his music.V 4 Comments
George was a great musician in his own right!
May he rest in peace.
He was the nicest beatle, he wanted a peaceful life and he died too early
His death was just as tragic as John, he died being overshadowed by the other Beatles
Best Beatle ever!V 1 Comment
He was killed by a "Mentally deranged" fan named Nathan Gale. He was shot because Gale thought Dimebag stolen songs from him. He was at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Ohio. So I say he should be in the top 10! RIP Dime.
Getting 3 shots performing live is the worst thing may ever happens :( - nooreldeen
Because of Walt Disney my younger years of my childhood were wonderful
And now, I've just become a teenager and his movies still give me great joy.
May he rest in peace and may his memory live on!
This world would not be the same without him. He truly amazing and still an inspiration worldwide.
I love Walt Disney, but were you people even alive when he died?
He is my inspiration.
If he didn't die, St. Anger might have never happened. Think about that.
Died so young and wasn't with Metallica for long only did 3 albums with the band and never got to play songs such as One, Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, The Day That Never Come and Unforgiven but he is famous for his bass playing without a pick. today he is regarded as the number 1 best bass player of all time behind Flea and Geddy Lea - mneilan
I wish this man was still alive. He had a bright future in front of him. If he was still alive we would've DEFINITELY seen him in the Dark Knight Rises. He would've been in so many great roles and would easily grow up to become one of the greatest actors of all time. Wish he was alive...
He had the potential to be one of the greatest actors ever, and managed to deliver one of the best performances ever before his death as the Joker. And while that my be his most memorable part, the rest of his work was no less impressive. It's so tragic that he had to leave this world just has he was hitting his stride.
I wish he could come back - Razor79
Nobody will ever give a performance as incredible and convincing as he did as the Joker ever again.V 1 Comment
Steve has touched everyone in so many ways that most people don't even know. He died way to young with so much more to offer.
He was more snobby than me and that says something but still loved his products but how low can you go by stealing credit from others - michaeldivine
HE DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP TEN!
GET THE KING UP THIS LIST!V 4 Comments
Wow, nobody here mentioned this?
Actually can t believe PETA mocked him like that. Absolutely selfish PETA.
I remember my brother and I loved watching his show. That was the only thing we did together that was super fun. He died a sad death.
Steve Irwin was a great man, I wish the best for the Irwin family.
CRICKEY! KING OF CROCIDILES, INFACT KING OF THE ANIMALS, AND WORST AUSSIE DEATH. - Thomas245V 7 Comments
He was an amazing person. He played a big part in ending racism, something completely ridiculous, in the U.S and he did it without fighting. Curse the person who shot him.
Truely one who changed the word. A very important and remembered person who will never be forgotten. I just wish that all his work was not in vain, because America today is reverting back- not to say that a many chose to change in the first place- to ignorance. However, we are doing better and thanks to him and his courage, we are definitely better off in one way or another. Definitely an amazing person that I look up to. There's still some hope for the world.
It is only a shame that people choose movie stars, and rock-stars over people that would have truly changed the world had they not died when they did. John Wilkes Booth was an idiot to shoot Lincoln, because Lincoln was the only voice of reason in reconstructing America. However, If MLK was alive today, Racism would have been discarded completely, a long time ago.
He was awesome and he would be be proud of a lot of people because of the way things turned out not with his death but with Americans how they new what he wantedV 8 Comments
Jesus is our savior we all love him he is full of love he is the king of kings and the son of god he died for our sins I love him more than anything I see touch hear smell feel taste
Don't get mad but we don't even know if he was real, he could symbolize something that never happened. He symbolized a perfect man, and faith. So not really sad.
Jesus Christ came to earth for only one thing, to die for us at the cross so that we (the sinners) can be saved. He is a true savior. Hope I will home with him soon.
THE KING OF KINGS, THE SAVIOUR, THE SON OF GOD, whats more tragic than a saint nailed onto a cross and wearing a crown of thornsV 15 Comments
She was a real inspiration
May her memory live on forever in our hearts.
Such a waste of potential. Girl with a beautiful voice and such talent
It's very sad because no one deserves to die early at a ripe young age and she sounded like an angel and I admit she's very beautiful R.I.P :-(
She was a good person and I had seen her concerts and I saw her on the voice and and I pretty myh know her and this is so unexpected
She died young... :(
Will always love you Christina. You will always stay alive in our hearts
Best female voice ever
thats so sad he was flippen awesome :(
He free'd the slaves, fought vampire's, and zombie's, and had something to do with the civil war, laugh out loud.
His death was terrible. His death went worldwide and people were so sad and depressed without him. Robin Williams was a very great influence to children. Comedy will never be the same without him...
Was a great, funny guy. Nobody can belive he's gone.
This man had played in Many movies including Jumanji, and Aladdin!
And we all loved him..
Reality, what a concept-Robin Williams
Best rapper in the east coast ever.
Anne should be in the Top 10. Think about it: she was only 15 years old when she died. She wanted to grow up to become a writer, along with so many other things, yet she never got the chance, just because she was Jewish (she grew up under Nazi occupation)! The Nazis indirectly took her ambitions away and she ended up dying of typhus in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. No child deserves to die and 15 is TOO YOUNG!
It is much easier for society from every corner of the world to listen to over and over again the numbers of murdered Holocaust victims, the are just that, numbers, which is far to impersonal. Miss Frank puts a face to the millions of victims the were subjected to the attrocities of these crimes against humanity. Anne Frank wanted to make a difference. Little did she know at the time what a differce she would make, and what it would cost her.
This should be number 1. Stop being butthurt over your favorite musician dying by drugs that they inflicted on themselves - 445956
My name is aaliyah, and I was born the year she died
R.I.P Snape ;-; - HufflepuffGeekGirl
HE SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE ON THE LIST! HI, BILLY MAYS HERE! SERIOUSLY, I WAS AT THE HEIGHT OF MY BILLY OBSESSION WHEN HE DIED! IT RUINED MY ENTIRE SUMMER! I WAS SO SAD! I STILL AM! AND I DON'T THINK COKE CAUSED HIS HEART ATTACK, THEY PROBABLY MISTOOK IT FOR OXI CLEAN! HE ACCIDENTALLY INHALED IT! - asdfalexia
All he wanted to do was sell Oxyclean and Burger Sliders, you guys. D:
His death was so tragic because he was so passionate about life. He fought so hard for animal, environmental and human rights. His music career was just taking off and he a very talented and sincere actor. I miss you River Jude Phoenix.
He had so much potential; not only as an actor, not only as a musician, but as an activist as well. He was so knowledgable when it came to the earth, environment, and animals. If he was given more time, he would have made wonderful and positive changes for the world.
He had the most beautiful, pure, and benevolent heart I have ever seen.

:'( so sad hide was so multitalented and the number 1# guitarist in aisa, he was from Japan! For you people who don't know about him I promise he is worth your time his music is gold! Whats more amazing is that he has PINK HAIR! And they call him pink spider because of his song pink spider and his pink hair, pink spider is the first song you should listen to! And the band he was in X Japan their the most successful forign band in the world! I promise all of it is worth your time!
Is pink hair the most amazing thing you can think about him? He was loved by tons of fans of J-rock/metal and X Japan. When he died, 3 other fans killed themselves the same way he did. But X Japan and hide's music were really good. More than 50,000 fans gathered together and made a tribute for him on his death. That's how much he was loved by his fans. And don't forget the band members. Yoshiki still misses hide deeply.
Hey all the beautiful ladies and big bros. It seems like all of you are giving your focus in this list to mainly tupac, jackson and freddie mercury which I know were tragic deaths, but you shouldn't forget the KING OF MARTIAL ARTS, the one and only BRUCE LEE. Well he in his short life has accomplished the fury of fastness within his hands which no one can has ever beat. And how can one forget his invention of ' THE ONE INCH PUNCH'. I think you don't know lot about him so it's my humble request to every visitor to just get enough information about bruce before you vote anyone.
Oh Bruce. It's very sad that this talented young man had to die. He still had so many other things to do. in my opinion, his death and Heath Ledger's death should be in the top three.
I am a huge fan of Bruce Lee
He will always be remembered. My favorite person in the fast and furious series. It such a tragedy what happened.
He wa slike the best
Died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. But his enlarge heart may have played a part in his tragic death.
RIP Jimmy and Dimebag. In our hearts foREVer.
What a tragic death. I heard about this on my bros b-day. And I just bursted out crying. Such a young man, having so much more time to live. Same things with dimebag darrel, paul gray, john lennon, kurt cobain, layne stayley, bob marley, jimmy Hendrix, and now Jimmy "the rev" Sullivan.R.I. P (rebirth in progress) foREVer! The rev lives on!
Abducted, held captive for about 3 days, before finally being murdered.
Even in death Gandhi was the most forgiving man on earth, besides Jesus of course, After getting shot several times, he begged everyone around him not to kill the man that shot him. The world will never know a more tragic, and depressing death.
He is the father of India country he will remain in our hearts he defined the word freedom perfectly rip
He Inspired Many
R.I.P Mahatma Gandhi
He killed himself after taking the life of his wife an son he was an awesome wrestler and his moves still rumble on in the rafters of the areana
RIP Layne Staley. Alice In Chains and rock in general will never be the same.
I named my son after you grew up with your music hated seeing you fade rip layne never the same without you x
She never deserved to die. She was talented, sweet and very inspirational. Her music was wonderful. What really makes her death really tragic is the fact that some stupid jealous fan killed her to try to get all her money. R.I.P. SELENA!
Hitler was a great man who did not deserve to die. Pablo Escobar is another good man.
I love the Kennedys. JFK is my favorite president.
It was just sad, this. He was so great and shouldn't have had to go what he went through. - PositronWildhawk
Balling my eyes out
