The Top Ten Saddest Songs About Depression or Suicide

1 Goodbye (I'm Sorry) - Jamestown Story

This song relates to my life 100%, I feel unwanted, and alone. I have no true friends that I can count on

This song is one I can relate with. I am in so much pain... and I write like this too.

This song is SO sad and you can even tell that the guy singing it is in real pain! SO beautiful yet depressing at the same time! It always makes me want to cry! - Littlemiss119956

You all clearly never listened to DSBM... - TrappedInsideIt

2 How to Save a Life - The Fray

I've listened to this song since I was a small child, the first time I remember hearing it was when I was around seven, after my dad threatened me and hit his girlfriend while she was pushing me into my room to hide. I sat there, listening to this song on repeat, for an hour. Only years later, did I find out what this song means.

This is an amazing song w/ a great message, and is the saddest yet greatest song ever.

Such a beautiful song! I love it! The Fray will always be one of my favorite songs! - Littlemiss119956

I didn't understand this song until I was older but then when I actually heard the lyrics, I was crying by the end of the song

3 This Song Saved My Life - Simple Plan

The part where the kids sing in the chorus REALLY pushes me over the edge! SO beautiful and amazing! This song goes out to everyone who has that one song that always makes them smile! - Littlemiss119956

" just the right time. This song saved my life."

4 Be Still - The Fray

Okay so pretty much EVERY SINGLE Fray song makes me cry! Issac Slade has such a beautiful, heart wrenching voice! I love them because they don't sing about all that mainstream crap! They don't sing about clubs, girls, sex, drugs, or anything crappy like that! They actually have songs that are important and need to be heard! - Littlemiss119956

5 Her Last Words - Courtney Parker

This song should be spread to all the people who only think of the negative side of life this is literally how I feel

Best song to correlate with your suicidal and self harming thoughts and feelings when you just need comfort knowing that other people go through the same types of feelings.

One of my favorite songs. Very relatible, and ger voice suits the song perfectly.

This song, does something to me. It's like I feel what she is feeling and then I just start to cry

6 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

Great song sad

How is this so far down. come on.

7 Adam's Song - Blink-182

This never fails to have me in tears

Should be number 1

8 Hurt - Johnny Cash

Correction: Hurt - Nine Inch Nails.

NIN wrote this song, Cash covered it. Give them the credit - ryanrimmel

How the hell is this not number one?

9 How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead

Blink 182 is above this. Let that sink in. - ProPanda

10 Headfirst for Halos - My Chemical Romance

This song is so upbeat and happy when you first hear it, but when you actually listen to the lyrics, you realise that the upbeat tone is just the mask that most people use to hide their depression. The happiness is actually scary.

The Newcomers

? Bury a Friend - Billie Eilish
? When You Die - MGMT

The Contenders

11 Bullet - Hollywood Undead

This was one of my anthems when I was suicidal, Even though its depressing it still makes me feel better

This is practically making suicide sound almost even fun. However, it doesn't depict "why" he's suicidal.

I love this song, it's so happy in such a twisted way

Its really sad and I can't stop crying at the end

12 My Immortal - Evanescence

Isn't this song about the death of a loved one? - DCfnaf

It's not that sad, but I LOVE it

The only song that's made my cry ;(

13 Fade to Black - Metallica

True masterpiece. - Userguy44

As long as you can appreciate this music this should be number one above all else. There music speaks words and before they even say a word you can tell what it’s about and could start to break down. Dealing with depression, this song has most actually described it in my opinion.

14 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

Just put it well above Grenade please.

15 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G.

A raw suicide note. So heavy and deserves a much higher spot.

€�A matter of fact I'm sick of talking”

16 Skyscraper - Demi Lovato

This song saved me

Simply beautiful. An athem to all lost people.

17 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails
18 Whiskey Lullaby - Brad Paisley
19 Nobody's Home - Avril Lavigne

The interlude brings me to tears. I can fully relate to it.

20 Fix You - Coldplay
21 Grenade - Bruno Mars

Amazing lyrics.

I listened to this song when I was 10 not knowing what it meant but now I’m 19 and I can relate to every word of this song and I understand it.

I just wish I had smone to talk to about it that’s why I have this song

22 Slipped Away - Avril Lavigne

This song always gets me, should be higher

Uhh actually that song is dedicated to her grandfather that passed away.

23 Creep - Radiohead

Isn’t this song about stalking? ~ Userguy44

26 Lithium - Evanescence

31 Let Her Go - Passenger
32 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
33 Mad World - Michael Andrews
34 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

Even though I have listened to this song my entire life, it hasn't come into focus until now, as I struggle with similar issues, what this song was really about. Very beautiful yet sad at the same time.

78! This song tells about a man who suffers depression and enters a state in his mind and then dies. How is this so low!
