Top Ten Saddest Pop-Punk Songs

Sometimes when you're sad, what you need to feel better is some pop-punk! But some songs can make you feel even worse... here are some examples of those.
The Top Ten
1 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day Cover Art

Whenever he sings this at a concert, he chokes up. You can hear the emotion in his voice as he sings about his late father.

Sad song, it makes you emotional, I love you #Green Day especially #BJA.

It's even sadder when you realize it's about Billie's dead father

2 Adam's Song - Blink-182 Adam's Song - Blink-182 Cover Art

The song circles a lonely person who, despite all their efforts to be positive and happy, is mentally dying on the inside and having a hard time trying to repair. If you look into the lyrics, and if you can relate even the slightest bit, you can feel that empty void in your gut, and it feels as though the world has walked out on you. This is Adam's song.

Altough is the only sad song in a happy album, It reallt stands by itself. It's unique and special. The lyrics of this song are so true, this is really special to me, and more than getting me sadder like other songs would do it makes me stand up and will to keep on living. This song gets you up whenever you're down and feel bad.

This song discusses a very touchy subject- depression and suicide. If you listen closely you pick up on the little notions that suggest to this kind of stuff. A lot of lyrics hit deep- my favorite is "please tell mom this is not her fault"

Adam's Song is one of the saddest yet uplifting songs I've heard. It certainly gets my #1 vote. Perfection.

3 I Miss You - Blink-182 I Miss You - Blink-182 Cover Art

This song along with all the album has a special meaning to me. I'm glad music has the power to liberate all your emotions.

4 Ten - Yellowcard Ten - Yellowcard Cover Art

The song is not about abortion... It's about miscarriage, the song is just too touching for a man longing for his unborn child.

A song about how the singers girlfriend from the past had an abortion, the lyrics are about what it would've been like if his child was born

5 Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cancer - My Chemical Romance Cover Art
6 21 Guns - Green Day 21 Guns - Green Day Cover Art

Well I think this song is a little bit more into the love side, but it's still kind of sad.

Seems to be more likely alt rock/pop than pop punk.

Sad song, 1 of #Green Day's best song.

7 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day Cover Art

Best song on this list, look at the title.

8 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

The middle and onwards doesn't seem as sad as I thought but the v beginning is really sad

9 Stay Together for the Kids - blink-182 Stay Together for the Kids - blink-182 Cover Art
10 Pieces - Sum 41 Pieces - Sum 41 Cover Art

Even the first line of lyrics are good, 'I tried to be perfect, but nothinh was worth it.' It means you just have to be yourself and don't care about the other ones. Awesome song.

The Contenders
11 Terrible Things - Mayday Parade Terrible Things - Mayday Parade Cover Art

This Song is definitely the saddest one ever.

It's about a guy who tells his son about how he fell in love with the mother who then died from sickness. He tells him to never fall in love because he'll only get hurt...

Saddest song ever! The meaning behind this song is so real and It brings me to tears every time I hear it.

This song is just sad, no other word for it, its beautifully sad. this deserves to be first. I love blink's I miss you, but this song is 1000 times more emotional

This gets me every time

12 Disenchanted - My Chemical Romance Disenchanted - My Chemical Romance Cover Art

In my opinion this is the saddest song My Chemical Romance ever made. Now it awakes so much memories, feelings I thought were dead. I was in middle high school when I first heard this song and those years were somehow dark, the funny days were almost gone and it was the start of another time in my life. The bitterness I felt those years was too much and I didn't knew how to liberate it. Fortunately music helped me, I found the right way and here I am. I'll never forgive this song, and this band.

13 Dear Father - Sum 41 Dear Father - Sum 41 Cover Art

The fact that Deryck never met his father and he was always a complete unknown (as said in the song) makes this song really sad.

This is really sad. Other sad song by sum 41 would be Walking disaster (at least the very first part)

14 The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring Cover Art
15 If It Means a Lot to You - a Day to Remember If It Means a Lot to You - a Day to Remember Cover Art
16 Wish You Were Here - Neck Deep Wish You Were Here - Neck Deep Cover Art

Just lost my mom to Stage 4 Lung Cancer, and so much of this song says what my heart says...

I found this song when I broke up with my girlfriend after almost 4 yrs of relationship since high school. It was like "damn it was so me"

Best song ever

17 Perfect - Simple Plan Perfect - Simple Plan Cover Art

Every time I hear this song I choke up. The feeling of not being good enough for someone you idolized is a real punch in the gut.

18 I Don't Love You - My Chemical Romance I Don't Love You - My Chemical Romance Cover Art
19 Homecoming - Green Day Homecoming - Green Day Cover Art
20 Simple Plan - Untitled Simple Plan - Untitled Cover Art
21 There is - Box Car Racer There is - Box Car Racer Cover Art

The first time I heard this song I was really sad. I felt really bad for myself, for everything I've done wrong in the past. But somehow It gave me hope too, It shows you that all is not lost unless you give up. It makes you realize that no matter how many mistakes you make, there's always a second chance and you can try again. It makes you realize that you're not alone, that maybe there is someone out there that feels just like you. I like all Box Car Racer's songs, for me it's like the depressive side of Blink-182, all their songs have a message. Tom's a fantastic songwriter, and it shows in this awesome album, without doubt, one of my favorite albums. I have just a few albums whose songs I like without any exception, and this is one example. Thanks Box Car Racer, you're forever in my heart and in my life.

22 Decode - Paramore Decode - Paramore Cover Art
23 December - Neck Deep December - Neck Deep Cover Art

This song talks about the lead vocalist to find out his girlfriend was cheating on him with a guy in the city in the cold month of December. The acoustic and piano in the background really bring the emotions to you.

24 Welcome to My Life - Simple Plan Welcome to My Life - Simple Plan Cover Art
25 Missing You - All Time Low Missing You - All Time Low Cover Art

Someone add Whatsername by Green Day please that's the saddest Pop Punk song I've heard
