Top Ten Saddest Music Videos


The Contenders: Page 4

61 By the Way - Hinder
62 One - Metallica

One is based on a movie - johnny got his gun. Even without watching the movie the music video is just intense and moving, especially at the very end when you realize how helpless somebody can feel

This song deserves to be in the top 10... Its lyrics are so meaningful and the music video just impacts the viewer. It is just so sad and is much better than any song above.

Its about a solder in a comer because he stepped on a land mine come in guys

This is one of the only songs that makes me cry when I hear it; the other one is The Show Must Go On- Queen

63 Coma White - Marilyn Manson

A lot of people think the video is mocking the assassination of John F. Kennedy, but the assassination is actually used as a metaphor for America's obsession and worship of violence. Manson's statement was always intended to make people think of how they view and and sometimes participate in these events.

So the video is in no way a mockery. It's a tribute to men like Jesus Christ and John F. Kennedy who have died at the hands of mankind's unquenchable thirst for violence.

This song and music video is very emotional.

Why is this so low? Should definitely be #1 - bearscry

Easily one of Manson's best songs.

66 The Scientist - Coldplay

This v1deo will always be the best for me, its sad how the accident happened and he wished he could just go back to the start before it happened, the video is such a tear jerker. I can never get tired of watching it

This song definitely wouldn't be the same without this video.

The video didn't make me cry, but the video itself is amazing

Makes me upset even hearing the song

67 Come Here Boy - Imogen Heap
68 Kill the Messenger - Jack's Mannequin
69 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne

Hmm.. As rambunctious and rebellious Avril can be, she can hit that spot in your brain triggering sadness. Just by listening to the song, you can kind of sympathise with Avril, because everyone gets that sad abandoned feeling at some point in life. So, judging by the story in the song, the music video must be amazing!

The whole video is basically in the mind of a girl, she feels like she's homeless, home is not home, I think this song is about domestic abuse

70 Adam's Song - Blink 182
71 How to Save a Life - The Fray

The video reminded me how lucky I am, when I was younger I loved this song but I started listening to the lyrics and then it hit me... If some things can be terrible and somehow ultra this is it

This music video is beyond sad... It shows the true heartbreak of troubled teens.

The video makes me cry every time

72 Lover I Don't Have to Love - Bright Eyes
73 The Mixed Tape - Jack's Mannequin
74 Like Toy Soldiers - Eminem Like Toy Soldiers - Eminem
75 Handlebars - Flobot

32? Come on this video has so much different meanings, but what makes it even more sad is when two best friends go completely different ways then one ends up killing the other.

76 Here Comes Goodbye - Rascal Flatts Here Comes Goodbye - Rascal Flatts

One of my favorite songs, since childhood. Enough said!

This song wasn't really a sad song to me.

77 Wavin' Flag - K'Naan
78 Running to the Edge of the World - Marilyn Manson

One of the most sad video of the legendary Marilyn Manson, the video should be in the top 10

79 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

If you think this is sad, then suit yourself, but it wasn't intended to be. The meaning of it is that death should come upon you in the form of your fondest memory. In this case, death came upon the hospital guy in the form of a parade (which was his fondest memory). It's very inspiring, and happy actually.
