Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 5

81 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!

82 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.

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 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
85 Heart-Shaped Box - Nirvana
86 Daddy - Korn
87 Tears In Heaven - Eric Clapton

Its about his kid flying out a highrise window... enough said

88 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.

89 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

90 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!

91 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

92 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

It's The Best Song Ever!

Its super sad I love andys vocals but after what he's gone through I just feel very sad

93 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

Say mek

94 Hospital for Souls - Bring Me the Horizon

You have to listen to understand how much pain is in this song

How is this not higher in the list?

95 Yesterday - The Beatles
96 A Tout Le Monde - Megadeth
97 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

98 Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
99 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.

100 Crimson Day - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this song is more encouraging than sad actually
