Top Ten Saddest Things In the History of Music
The Top Ten
John Lennon had it coming in all honesty, it was because of his arrogance and his anti-religious statement that sparked a backlash from many of his fans who had a belief in God. He didn't deserve death at all because, at the end of the day, he is just an ordinary man who had a passion to sing for others.
Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and most other musicians who died young brought it upon themselves. Not so Lennon. He'd taken most of the '70s off, so he could spend time with his wife and son. Then, just as he was recording a new album, he was gone. - PetSounds
Hard to imagine anything sadder or more shocking to the world of music than this was.
A very unexpected tragic day. Worst day in history. - Beatlesboy9
This is why PETA needs to stop protesting medical research
He died from AIDS. How sadder can you get. - Pony
I half-agree to this; while AIDS does deplete your immune system, it does not kill you. You die with AIDS, not FROM it. - Juan-Luis
The most saddest event in music
RIP Kurt - Neonco31
Nirvana isn't my favorite band, and Kurt isn't my favorite musician, but I do believe his death killed music. Nirvana honestly was the last great band in music history.
When this happened millions of people cried that day because of how great of a person Dimebag Darrell really was - christangrant
We call this the 27 Club. - Metalhead1997
Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, etc. - reed99
Guess what? drug abusing? - zxm
We call it... THE 27 CLUB
Michael Jackson didn't deserve to die in the hands of Conrad Murray. Michael's 3 children were very heartbroken when he died. Michael Jackson is talented, smart and BEAUTIFUL. He was also a very good singer and dancer. Michael Jackson is one the best influential celebrities that has ever existed. He's ICONIC!
Even worse, he was expected to perform a series of concerts in London to take place starting the next month. It's just sad to see him leave early. - reed99
He died too soon.
As Don McLean sang, "the day the music died." - PetSounds
February 3, 1959 will always be remembered as "The Day the Music Died". - Metalhead1997
They died too soon - big bopper 28
buddy holly 23
Ritchie valens 17
I don't care if anyone doesn't like/hates Justin Bieber, but that doesn't give anyone an excuse to put that on the list. The hate towards Justin Bieber has gone too far.
I'm not surprised to see this here. - 906389
Did you know Justin Bieber was born on 1st March 1994, and Kurt died on 5th April 1994. So its not like Justin was born in April. He was born at the beginning of March.
and could die at the age of 27. Oh say it's the rock singers but you haters have caused the depression so it's a theory.
This should be #1!
Slow and painful, one of the greatest people ever, so sad. Let this be a lesson to all of you kids to never smoke!
Wow, just wow. Also, Bonham's death was from too much alcohol. - Pony
That was really sad - Toucan
Led Zeppelin are legends! And they broke up, and John died. R.I.P - ToptenPizza
That was so sad.
Shame they had been together since 1960 and split in the 1970s.
Could've reunited if John hadn't been murdered and George hadn't died of cancer.
The Beatles were a legend! They had everything! Why! - ToptenPizza
Very shocking at the time. - Pony
That's why I don't like Johnny. I mean John Lennon - zxm
I am still pissed off about that. Like who would kill their favorite person?
A musical juggernaut who has so much more music to write and play...
Should be way higher than where it is. Only 3 albums! - Donut
His song are amazing
We love you,Elvis
Charter member of the 27 club.
It's really sad that happened,the Doors were an awesome band,and he died at a very young age of 27.its sad there are so many people in the 27 club - Toucan
He died in February 1980. So sad. - Metalhead1997
Rap is the best genre of music, deepest, most sincere and meaningful, and pac is the best there is. Truly saddening someone changing the world expressed in the songs "changes" and "ghetto gospel" was taken from us, when he was only 25. You will be missed.
Live the thug life, die the thug death.
Isn't even in the Top 10? - AlphaQ
Beethoven died a long time ago so how could he live in the modern world?
It could be better if Justin Beiber lives in the early century where Beethoven lives and replaced him in our world.
I can't tell if that was a stab at it or not. - MLGPoossySlayer6969
The assassination of Tupac Shakur was so pathetic that many rappers like Chris Brown and Kanye West wanted to say the f-word in every song to celebrate his death!
When he changed his name to The Artist in the 1990s?
Although very sad, it was one of Rock-n-Roll's most spectacular exits, because he was rehearsing in the bathtub with his electric guitar.
He was three days away from his birthday, the same day as mine! - Pony
I cry every time someone plays his songs heaven and wake me up cause it really makes an impact on you to know he's gone and I'm crying creating this he had commited suicide april 20 of 2018 he had battled anxiety and depression because he wasnt able to cope with the preassure he was under so he commited suicide
