Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls
82 O - Coldplay
83 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


84 The Sound of Silence - Disturbed

Not since Johnny Cash covered Hurt has anyone truly mastered a song the way Disturbed has with this. This can no longer be considered a Simon and Garfunkel song. It's a Disturbed song. And it's so sad and mournful, with just a note of anger that the original lacks.

Controversially better than the original in every way. Had every hair standing on my body the first time I listened to it. This song is perfect!

A cover of the song by Simon and Garfunkel but this guy's voice makes this song just as sad and beautiful.

85 Heart-Shaped Box - Nirvana
86 Hate Me - Blue October

Listen to it and acutely listen to the lyrics. It is very deep, because it is not a break up, its about a death.

87 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit

The robot spelling out his stage name is really not necessary but whatever

U guys don't knw wht sad song means! otherwise it would've placed in top 5 easily

88 Savior - Black Veil Brides

This song shows that they care, even though that at concerts they spit in the faces of there fans in the front row, they really care about them

It's such a sad song and it really shows they care about their fans.

I love this song so much it makes me cry every time.

LOVE black veil brides!

89 Falling Away with You - Muse

His voice at the beginning just so honest and match the acoustic then completed it with a crying like voice in the chorus.. Pure genius.

The lyrics are simply beautiful, Matthew Bellamy is a pure lyrical genius

90 Lost It All - Black Veil Brides

It is an amazing song about losing everything you care about and feeling hopeless. It vocalizes depressions and explains the struggles people have to feel like they are useful.

This song has helped me so much trough my depression its powerful and is amazing

94 Cradled In Love - Poets of the Fall

"don't cry for your love, cry tears of joy, because your alive cradled in love" what a lyric and the vocal is amazing too. The way the singer sings the song is amazing. All n all this is one of the songs that will touch your heart. Trust me.

It's just amazing. Magical and evergreen. Will touch your heart whether you're in love or not

95 Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
96 Yours to Hold - Skillet

! I add this song to the list like 6 months ago, I'm glad to see that it has increased. I love to see people that had the same feeling listening this song. Believe me this is amazing, you'll cry every time you listen to it.

This is the saddest song ever, if you don't believe me hear it then, and you'll realize this is amazing.
The first time I heard it, I was like: what in the hell is this?! It would probably make you cry like a baby.

! This is so sad, this one shouldn't be down here. The saddest song I have ever heard. Believe me, this will make you cry like a little girl

Just give it a try, you'll notice it is sad as hell.
Probably it will make you cry.

97 Crimson Day - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this song is more encouraging than sad actually

98 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

It makes me crying and smiling at the same time when I hear that note.

It's not sad but... I love this song! Well maybe just a bit...

That first G-note always manages to make me cry. Even after 9 years.

99 Not Alone - Linkin Park

They've made the song for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti :(

I forgot about this song.
Anyways, this song makes me cry a lot, and not many songs do that. The only songs that make me cry are this and Afraid This Time by Celldweller. - wrests

100 Anthem of the Angels - Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin has been one of the bands that I listen to whenever I need to let tears fall. This song was one of the ones that made that possible. I get depressed so easily sometimes over even the smallest things, and whenever I need that time to just cry, Anthem of the Angels would always be the song I listen to.
