Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 The Raven that Refused to Sing - Steven Wilson

I'm amazed this wasn't in the list.

Hands down the saddest song ever written(watch this video...WOW, ranks up there with Radiohead exit music for a film and green plastic watering can, these songs actually move me.

102 Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails
103 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day
104 Breathe - Paramore
105 Still Loving You - Scorpions
106 Win Some, Lose Some - Robbie Williams
107 Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad - Def Leppard
108 Times Like These - Foo Fighters
109 Sorrow - Flyleaf

A truly amazing song.. The verses really describe depression. And the scream in the end is very powerful

110 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead V 1 Comment
111 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.

112 Hero of War - Rise Against

I believe this song hits like a train... I mean listen to the last verse; the one about the girl.

Whenever listens to this song always give me a goosebumps

Can't believe this isn't in the top five.

I cried when I first listened it...

120 Hollow Life - Korn

Korn has always been my favorite band and I love each and every one if their songs because I can relate to almost all of them.. But this is in my top 3 favorites I can't even explain it but jonathans voice and the lyrics make this song true badassery
