Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Win Some, Lose Some - Robbie Williams
122 Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad - Def Leppard
123 Times Like These - Foo Fighters
124 Sorrow - Flyleaf

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

125 Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead V 1 Comment
126 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.

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

Whenever listens to this song always give me a goosebumps

I cried when I first listened it...

127 Empire of the Clouds - Iron Maiden

My favorite song. - CostcoHotDogs

Fairly new, very sad, more so when you realise not only is there a story behind it, but it's true as well. The R101 airship.

128 Somewhere - Within Temptation

Quite a sad song that should be listened to when you need to cry

129 Diluted - Slipknot

This isn't really a sad song, it's more about hate

130 Floods - Pantera
131 When the Eagle Cries - Iced Earth
132 Lazarus - David Bowie
133 'Til We Die - Slipknot

I find this more emotional than "Snuff". This one really hits you when you start reminiscing of the loss of some whom you felt really close with and how family (Either blood or people/a group whom you share a deep bond with) is something you would cherish so much. Although made before Paul Gray's death, it's the best song by Slipknot to connect with the former bassist.

To many others, its really relatable song. Its also really emotional as there's so much to connect to this song. - CrimsonShark

134 Godspeed - The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

It makes me cry every time. A very sad song about war. Very beautiful also!

135 Where Do We Draw the Line - Poets of the Fall
136 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

137 Rain - Hollywood Undead

I can't believe that Rain isn't in the top ten. This is definitely the one of the saddest rock songs I've heard. I wish there were more like it.

If there are lyrics that can literally make you cry, these are the ones.

Why isn't this at the top? Has anyone bothered to hear it? It's beautiful! These songs are a story in of themselves, just listen to them in the right order and maybe you'll rethink it all. Order:
I'll Be There

138 The Lost Child - Anathema
139 Asleep - The Smiths

This song has many meanings to different people. To me it is talking about suicide and a want to die.

140 Fire and Rain - James Taylor
