Top 10 Music Artists with the Most Depressing MusicAs 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
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 )
Especially Nutshell. You really can hear the depressing in Layne's voice there. I like them too!
Jar of flies can make you create a river of tears in a few seconds.
No Excuses has to be the more depressing grunge song I've ever heard.
Nutshell and Rotten Apple are pretty depressing.
Street spirit and exit music are really depressing.
also no surprises, a wolf at the door and man of war give me the vibes as well
Oh yeah, there music can be very depressing to hear. It's something that you get used to. Very melancholic.
I just love their songs, They are very different and that's what makes them so great, Love 'em.
Street Spirit is very depressing.
In my opinion, Nirvana wasn't all that depressing until In Utero. A lot of the stuff before that was negative, but not really that depressing. Mainly just Teen Angst. But when they want to, yeah, it's very depressing alright.
They have a song titled 'I Hate Myself and I Want to Die'. And Kurt Cobain did kill himself. I'm surprised they're not #1.
At least top three, but still great music!
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
Just the amount of songs about Mental illness and insanity.
One word: Animals
All of their songs are so dark and depressing.
Pretty bleak stuff, but influenced most indie/alt rock acts of the 90s.
Yes, another grunge band - to me grunge is the most depressing music subgenre. It doesn't mean bad though.
This should be number one
Their lyricism is quite sad and disturbing. They became less depressing as they went on, but those first three albums were downers! Of course that isn't a bad thing, Pearl Jam is incredible nonetheless.
There music is pretty depressing.I was raised off there music.
Three Days Grace is pretty depressing and some might like it. I love it.
Depressing fits their first three albums pretty well.
My favourite band
Really great band, but yeah. All there songs are influenced by depression. And Chester Bennington killed himself. It surprises me that most fans had no idea he was crying out in pain in his music until his suicide. I noticed it as soon as I first heard them.
All there songs are about how bad life is. Seriously drains me.
There lyrics are very depressing. I relate so much.
Literally all their songs.
My Immortal is probably their most depressing song.
Especially My Immortal.
WAKE ME UP WAKE ME UP INSIDE can't WAKE UP can't WAKE UP INSIDE
Should be higher.-TheCoolGuy1
Its Depressing How Overrated These Sellouts Are
Some immature person added this here, TOP is not depressing at all.
No, Twenty One Pilots aren't depressing to me.
The most depressing music.
His newer songs are mainly focused on his mental health, and as time went on, you could see how his mental health drastically changed
My depression artist
As someone who suffers from depression, Lana's music really speaks to me. Yeah, some of it is quite depressing, but with a healing quality about it. In my opinion, Lana Del Rey is the best pop artist of today, and I really don't like today's pop music. Lana is really something special, and the fact that she is popular is a good thing. Depressing, but in a good way.
Her music seems to always move me, to the point where I can't help but cry. You can feel the pain and beauty behind each lyric and cord. Truely an amazing artist!
Her songs are so good but depressing
I am a depressing artist
Nirvana isn't THAT depressing! Porcupine Tree hits me way harder than most of these groups. Get them higher!
This is some very gloomy stuff. Should definitely be up there in the top 5. But there amazing nonetheless.
These guys have some of the most emotional pieces prog has ever seen. Forget Pink Floyd, PT definitely should top this list.
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.
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.
I'm suprised they're not higher. Their music is very despressing.
Have you even seen some of their lyrics?... especially daddy has some pretty dark ones. they should be ranked higher
Not a fan, but their music is depressing.
They played depressive rock, black metal, dark ambient
They are not the best of course, but they could deserve the top spot of the rank
They must be number 1. in this list. Such a genius duo.
