Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 6

101 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

102 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.

103 Crimson Day - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this song is more encouraging than sad actually

104 The Gift - Seether

This song is amazing it's about a man who kills a girl in a crash and visits her gave and feels so much remorse

If you’re down on yourself this is by far the most depressing song. Literally.

105 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.

106 Today - Smashing Pumpkins
107 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.

108 To Live is to Die - Metallica V 1 Comment
109 How to Save a Life - The Fray

This song is about not only loss but regret. It brings to mind past mistakes that one made and how difficult or impossible it is to correct past wrongs.
It reminds me of lost love and the loss of loved ones. Its awesome.
