The Contenders: Page 2

21 Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
22 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
23 Let It Be - The Beatles

The song is about McCartney's dead mother. Most agree that it is one of the Beatles' best, me included.

Favorite lyric: "Mother Mary whispers, let it be." - Alpha101

24 Sleep Alone - Moby
25 Time - Pink Floyd
26 Them Bones - Alice In Chains
27 American Pie - Don McLean
28 Dead Flowers - Demon Hunter

One of the most underrated song I know. Don't really like the bad, but the song is great.

Favorite lyric: "Dead flowers for the torn-apart. Laid at the grave to heal a broken heart." - Alpha101

29 Pale Horses - Moby
30 Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan
31 A Day In the Life - The Beatles
32 The Great Gig in the Sky - Pink Floyd
33 One - Metallica

35 Difficult - Eminem
36 Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival

"Don't go out tonight,
'Cause it's bound to take you life,
There's a bad moon on the rise"
Just a little thought and you will realize that the "bad moon" is a nuclear detonation.

37 Fiction - Avenged Sevenfold
38 When Death Comes Knocking - Primal Fear
39 Death Row - Pentagram

"Waiting your turn, just to die
You wish that someone could be by your side
You're so afraid to be alone
You need my help so that you can be strong

And what will you miss
When death gives you a kiss" - Metal_Treasure

40 The Rains of Castamere - Jackie Evancho

From the "Red Wedding" episode of "Game of Thrones". A considerable amount of people die.
