61 Creep - Radiohead

This song is how I feel sometimes, like I don't belong. Maybe the world is better off without me.

62 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

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

63 Lithium - Nirvana

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

64 Watch Over You - Alter Bridge

One Of Great Song Of Alter Bridge And My Favourite.

The best alter bridge song in my opinion shoul be higher in this list

65 Lying Is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off - Panic! At the Disco V 1 Comment
66 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.

67 I Miss You - Blink 182

One of my favourite sad songs. Emotional, but still twinged with punk elements. Classic Blink, and it brings me to tears every time

I was crying when listening to this song

Should be higher this is a beautiful and sad song

73 H. - Tool

The very best at breaking my heart every god damn time

This is by far my favorite tool song

74 Hey You - Pink Floyd
75 Remember Everything - Five Finger Death Punch

How was the song so low on the list?! God I cried do this every night!

Even if you don't like metal AT ALL, this song grabs the feels and makes you cry.

One of the greatest songs I have ever heard. Enough said.

79th?! Really? One of the saddest songs in existence

76 The Ghost of You - My Chemical Romance

Not only is the song sad, so is the fate of the band.

You think the song is sad? Look at the video!

77 Cemetery Gates - Pantera

The only reason I voted this is because I saw metallica's unforgiving on 10 and this one unranked, this list is a joke. Oh and green day is in top 10 as well so yeah, this list is sad, no literally.

78 How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead
79 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Whenever this song plays, you feel like you're really going to heaven.

This song always makes me cry.

This isn't a sad song at all


80 Ohne Dich - Rammstein

It's so sad. If you love Rammstein (and actually care about them) I can guarantee the music video will make you cry, even though it's not real.

I think that Mutter is a sadder song than Ohne Dich, but it's great nonetheless.
