Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

Just the BEST voice around here...

22 Buried Alive - Avenged Sevenfold

It's not even the saddest Avenged Sevenfold song, So Far Away & Seize The Day are much sadder - Xinferno-awaitsX

It just make me feel so down, every time I hear it

Beautiful song with emotional solo

Very sad but also beautiful - xkill

23 Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

24 Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

My favorite song of all the times

25 Vermillion Pt.2 - Slipknot

Honestly, if more popular songs had been on Vol. 3, this song might be more respected than snuff for being truly sad

Way sadder than snuff but danger keep away is another level

Much more sad than Snuff, just less popular.

30 Through Glass - Stone Sour

Through Glass is a song about slowly fading away into the unknown.. Where your friends or family become distant, and you are left wondering why it couldn't be like the good old days. I can highly relate, and highly recommend through glass by stone sour.

I litterally cryed when I heard this song its so sad you need to listen to this

31 November Rain - Guns N' Roses

This one is supposed to be in the top 10

Simply the best power balad of all times!

Best G&R song of all time

32 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
33 The Unforgiven II - Metallica

The unforgiven too is (just like the first unforgiven) a very slow and sad song that anyone can relate to.

34 Blackbird - Alter Bridge

Black bird is hard rock at its very best... It's a shame people haven't even heard of it... It's outburst of emotions... Its about a friend who passed away long time ago... Total masterpiece

Written for a past away friend... "Someday I too will fly and find you again"

Just listen once and ask yourself where this should be in this list

This should be #1 on the list it's amazing.

Life it seems to fade awayy...drifting further everyday.. wow what a sad song, the acoustic at the beginning

36 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

This song deserves to be at the top, gets you right there

This deserves to be in the top ten. A great but depressing song.

The lyrical genius of Trent Reznor amazes me.

very sad

37 Hurricane - Theory of a Deadman

This song is one of the best in this band

I love theory of a deadman and this is one of there best songs next to bitch came back. Love the intro and how it plays rain noises at the beginning and the end

38 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Pleading with illness, could even relate to loss. "Faceless enemy" you can't really fight an enemy if it doesn't have a mind or will to fight against. When helpless, we go to pleading.

Yeah this one but where is Never too late by Three Days Grace though?

Very beautiful and sad

This song is so sad but the most sad by breaking benjamin is ashes of eden
