Top 10 Music Artists with the Most Depressing MusicMetal_Treasure As much as I love some of these artists their music makes me feel depressed even though I am not a depressed type of person.
This list does NOT include music artists who may have 2-3 sad songs but their music isn't depressing for the most part - Metallica and Judas Priest, for example.
The Top Ten
Oh my goodness! Pink Floyd is really depressing at times. I tried to get into the Wall by listening to it bit by bit but every night it would bring me down so now, I am afraid to listen to the third side of the vinyl.
Of course they are amazing but yeah - it can be a little bit depressing when it comes to lyrics - Ananya
I guess Wish You Were Here, the end of Comfortably Numb, and Hey You are pretty sad. - Lucretia
One word: Animals
I love this band, And I agree that they create very powerfully depressing songs...But that's their style ( Not for all the songs by the way ) - Ananya
No Excuses has to be the more depressing grunge song I've ever heard.
Sad. I almost cried listening to them... and I never cry - Lucretia
Jar of flies can make you create a river of tears in a few seconds.
Oh yeah, there music can be very depressing to hear. It's something that you get used to. Very melancholic. - cjWriter1997
I just love their songs, They are very different and that's what makes them so great, Love 'em. - Ananya
They are not that depressing. Half of In Rainbows, almost half of Hail To The Thief, The Bends and Pablo Honey to some extent and pretty much all from when they were called On A Friday are happy. Plus, songs like: Karma Police, Paranoid Android, Tell Me Bitch, Anyone Can Play Guitar, Kid A, Fitter Happier, etc are not anyways that serious
Jeremy... - Ananya
It makes me sad that they are more popular then Alice In Chains... - Lucretia
At least top three, but still great music!
Yes, another grunge band - to me grunge is the most depressing music subgenre. It doesn't mean bad though. - Metal_Treasure
My Immortal is probably their most depressing song.
LOL they're not even close to being depressing. - SwagFlicks
WAKE ME UP WAKE ME UP INSIDE can't WAKE UP can't WAKE UP INSIDE - Yatagarasu
Hearing Adele's songs now physically drains me and takes my mind to a dark place I desperately needed an escape from. I can't listen to any of her songs anymore. - Britgirl
If I could hear them better... anyways yeah - Lucretia
Its Depressing How Overrated These Sellouts Are - VideoGamefan5
They're both depressing, but really funny and crazy. They are S I C K
Seriously though but Tyler is the one and only king of Taco Bell ^_^
I'm sorry this list had to be ruined by users who cannot shut up about the pop artists they hate. For someone who hates pop music, you guys sure do talk a lot about it. - cjWriter1997
Indeed. So depressing to hear that no talent arseclowns can get record deals and more money than most can dream of, while most talented musicians are currently working in fast food joints to keep themselves from starving. Not even Pink Floyd or Radiohead can compete with that. - Mrveteran
Its Depressing That Watch Me Had To Exist - VideoGamefan5
They played depressive rock, black metal, dark ambient - Metal_Treasure
Basically everything about this guy is sad. Some of the most genuinely depressing lyricysm you'll ever hear, paired with soft, understated and subtle instrumentation that'll take any joy you had in you right out in a moment.
Actually The Doors' music gets me kind of excited. Well at least their more energetic songs. - cjWriter1997
Make me feel nothing. - Lucretia
Well...They create powerfully magnificent songs, sometimes with elements of sadness...And that's really amazing! - Ananya
After all It's doom metal... - Ananya
Some of their topics:
Ex-drug addicts, lonely people, depressed people, breaking up, being in love with someone who doesn't love you back, self doubt, needing someone to hold on to,... all in very sad sounding and down tempo songs. - Martin_Canine
More talentless dummies who make godawful electronica, all the while being utter sellouts to the culture their first single initially mocked. Very depressing indeed. - Mrveteran
