125 Where Do We Draw the Line - Poets of the Fall
126 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

127 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

128 Asleep - The Smiths

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

129 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

130 Burden - Opeth
131 Lost In Paradise - Evanescence

Definitely one of their saddest songs.

Very sad and perfect

132 Timothy - The Buoys

3 men are trapped in a coal mine cave-in.
Two of them kill and eat the third to survive.

133 The Infection - Disturbed
134 Last to Know - Three Days Grace

This song reminded me when my crush moved and broke up with me which caused me to go into a depression which every time I hear this song, I breakdown in tears

How the hell is this not in the top 10! This is a very sad song! Along with "Never Too Late" this is my favorite song by Three Days Grace. - BluestKnight


135 Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

This songs is guaranteed to make you cry when thinking about a person who has passed. This should be number 1

It is sad that Syd left the Pink Floyd but this song does not make me sad. In fact, I like it

For a lost friend, love and companion... a truly sad one

136 Road to Nowhere - Bullet for My Valentine V 1 Comment
137 Coming Down - Five Finger Death Punch
138 Empire of the Clouds - Iron Maiden

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.

139 A Match Into Water - Pierce the Veil

The amount of emotion Vic has in this song is unbelievable

140 Disappear - Dream Theater

The song is about a man losing his wife and saying farewell. The woman he loved is now far away and he tries to accept it and move on. The powerful lyrics combined with dark melodies constitutes one of the saddest songs I have listened to.
"I gave you my hand
I said it's okay letting go time to leave here
And I'll carry on
The best that I can without you here beside me"
