Top Ten Saddest Things In the History of Music
The Top Ten
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.
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.
This is why PETA needs to stop protesting medical research
He died from AIDS. How sadder can you get.
I half-agree to this; while AIDS does deplete your immune system, it does not kill you. You die with AIDS, not FROM it.
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.
The most saddest event in music
When this happened millions of people cried that day because of how great of a person Dimebag Darrell really was
I have to say this should be number one so many great artist died so young many could have became legends in rock some even did like Jimi Hendrix, Kurk Cobain, Robert Johnson, Jim Morrison and many many more who sadly didn't get to show all they can do to reinvent music R.I.P to them all
We call this the 27 Club.
Guess what? drug abusing?
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.
He died too soon.
February 3, 1959 will always be remembered as "The Day the Music Died".
As Don McLean sang, "the day the music died."
They died too soon - big bopper 28

Slow and painful, one of the greatest people ever, so sad. Let this be a lesson to all of you kids to never smoke!
Led Zeppelin are legends! And they broke up, and John died. R.I.P
Wow, just wow. Also, Bonham's death was from too much alcohol.
That was really 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!
That's why I don't like Johnny. I mean John Lennon
Very shocking at the time.
I am still pissed off about that. Like who would kill their favorite person?
His song are amazing
We love you,Elvis
A musical juggernaut who has so much more music to write and play...
Should be way higher than where it is. Only 3 albums!
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
Charter member of the 27 club.
He died in February 1980. So sad.
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.
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!
I can't tell if that was a stab at it or not.
Live the thug life, die the thug death.
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.
