Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Burden - Opeth
142 Lost In Paradise - Evanescence

Definitely one of their saddest songs.

Very sad and perfect

143 Timothy - The Buoys

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

144 The Infection - Disturbed
145 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


146 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

147 Road to Nowhere - Bullet for My Valentine V 1 Comment
148 Coming Down - Five Finger Death Punch
149 A Match Into Water - Pierce the Veil

The amount of emotion Vic has in this song is unbelievable

150 Love Hurts - Nazareth

This song is way too far on this list.

Its just ugh

151 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"

152 Fight to Forget - Red
153 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Its not sad

154 Hollow - Godsmack
155 A Knife Called Lust - Hollywood Undead
156 The Temptation That Is You - The Saddest Landscape
157 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

The type of overwhelming despair and fiery anger that combine to form this song--- it screams out that even though your ship is sinking, your taking everyone that's ever hurt you down with it.

How is this not higher dave pours his heart in this song and it is a song that many people feel in their daily lives since we live in such a selfish world

It may not "feel" sad, but knowing the background, it is pretty sad.

158 Already Over - Red

This song means so much to what has happened in my life. My favorite song by Red and my favorite song.

I actually don't find it sad, but it's still an amazing song. - LarkwingFlight

159 Cry Out to Jesus - Third Day
160 These Are the Days of Our Lives - Queen

Last video appearance of Mercury
