Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 4

61 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge

This song brings about a flood of tears. Don't try listening to it in public. The lyrics, the music and the vocals are all very moving. It will make you mourn the loss of a loved one, a mentor, a friend or miss any good times from your past. I listen to it whenever I feel the need to cry and release any suppressed emotions.

This is a beautiful song that lead guitarist Mark Tremonti wrote for his mother after she passed away. It breaks your heart, but it is about never forgetting your loved ones and missing them. Every now and then I listen to this song and think of my loved ones that have passed on. Truly one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

This song is the summary of everything that mark tremonty could feel when he lost his mother, that everyone could feel when we lost someone

This should be in higher in this list

62 Lithium - Nirvana

Loneliness vocalized. Energetic song, yet, an extreme lack of companionship is the lingering theme

63 You Know You're Right - Nirvana

I miss Kurt so much :'(

His voice from his grave

His last beautiful song

This represents how Kurt felt about his life...

78 Give Me a Sign - Breaking Benjamin

When I was 10 years old I was diagnosed with depression. It was a really hard time for me. one day I discover the song while browsing on Spotify. I always knew breaking Benjamin and I always love this song. If you listen closely to the lyrics of the song you can really get the idea of how much emotion was put into this. It's also sad because it bring that past memories that I always try to forget. At the same time it's happy because it feels like a chance of living and that reminds me that my life has meaning. No matter what happened the song always made me cry.

The best song, it has great guitar in the chorus but still maintains a rock sad song. Which proved not all sad rock songs have to be acoustic. This song kept me Alive, I thought of ending everything!

Love this song. One of the worst feelings in the world is when you're trying to help somebody, but nothing you can say or do will ever get through to them, because they don't realize there's anything wrong.

You listen to the beat and you're like "Oh, what a nice, happy song! " then you listen to the lyrics and reality hits you.

I call this song the happiest suicide song. its true though and it kinda makes you accept yourself
