16 Adam's Song - Blink 182
17 Cancer - My Chemical Romance

19 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

No way anything that is sad yet epic is better than this. This song is about the death of Billie Joe's father's death and people who have died in the September eleventh attacks. Not only are the lyrics deep, but the melody is just so epic. The opening is iconic, the chorus is goose bump inducing, the drums go along so well, and the guitar and bass guitar work is legendary.

23 Hymn for the Missing - Red
24 Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

27 Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men
28 Too Much Love Will Kill You - Queen

Really Sad.
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end. :( - DaringXx
