Saddest Rock Songs of All Time

The Contenders: Page 8

141 The Lost Child - Anathema
142 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.

151 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater

Honestly this should be in the Top 10 at least! The absolutely depressing lyrics in combination with a much more calm and collected Dream Theater sound made this one of the saddest Songs I've ever heard! - CastlevaniaFanboy128
