Top 10 Suicide Songs

The Top Ten Suicide Songs

1 Fade to Black - Metallica

One of the greatest songs ever written

Definitely a masterpiece. The guitar solo gives me chills. And very deep lyrics too. - Userguy44

So sad my brother just commited suicide

"I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye" - Metal_Treasure

2 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

Take the world w/all it's sin - it's not fit for living in!

"He had enough, he couldn't take anymore... The wind kissed him goodbye and then he died".

"This is my life, this is my life
I'll decide not you
Keep the world with all its sin
It's not fit for livin' in
Yeah! I will start again
It can take forever, and ever, and ever
And ever, but I'll still win." - Metal_Treasure

3 Eyes of the Insane - Slayer

God...this song was a beast, it was mind blowing and great - Ananya

About a soldier who suffers PTSD after war and eventually commits suicide. - Metal_Treasure

4 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

A boy committed suicide in class. "Jeremy spoke in class today... Try to forget this, try to erase this from the blackboard". - Metal_Treasure

5 Chop Suey - System of a Down

This song is basically about drug abuse (addiction) but yes, they mention suicide in the lyrics. - Metal_Treasure

6 Jump - Van Halen

Yeah I think its about that. - zxm

This song sounds so happy that people rarely associate it with suicide but it is about suicide ("Jump! ").
David Lee Roth has given various accounts of the meaning behind the lyrics, but he usually says they are about a T.V. news story he saw where a man was about to kill himself by jumping off a building (Roth thought, "Might as well jump"). - Metal_Treasure

7 Falling Away from Me - Korn

Weird I get more of a child abuse vibe to this song...

Jeff, I agree with you (I didn't add this song). But there's a line "You flirt with suicide" - Metal_Treasure

8 Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne
9 Love's Tragedy Asunder - Demons & Wizards

About a man who loves his wife but she is terminally ill and he assists her suicide. Then kills himself. Lyrics are sad but somehow romantic. Vocals, music and lyrics are great.

"She still has sunshine in her weary eyes
A bed of roses to testify my love
A promise made, now I will make a try
There is no power in earth to tear us apart". - Metal_Treasure

10 Last Resort - Papa Roach

"Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a f&@k if I cut my arms bleeding
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight, chance are that I might
Mutilation out of sight and I’m contemplating suicide
Cause I’m losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine
Nothing’s alright, nothing is fine
I’m running and I’m crying" - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Suicide Note Pt. 2 - Pantera
12 Loser - 3 Doors Down

"You’re getting closer to pushing me off of life’s little edge
cause I’m a loser and sooner or later you know I’ll be dead
You’re getting closer
you’re holding the rope and I’m taking the fall
cause I’m a loser
I’m a loser yeah" - Metal_Treasure

13 1-800-273-8255 - Logic

I listen to this song a lot and I love it I don't know if I am really sad?

Should be number 1.
One of the most beautiful songs of all time.
It has amazing melody, lyrics and message.
Brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.
I wanted to take my life so many times and this song actually helped me.
+i really love alessia's back vocals in that part 'i finally wanna be alive' it really touches my heart.

Is there any song that produces tears like this one?

Yes, definitely. - tbell4ever

14 Suicide Note, Pt. 1 - Pantera
15 Hold On - Good Charlotte

This song should be number one on this list because not only does it raise awareness for suicide, but it's an anti-suicide song. GC wrote this song for all those people who feel like giving up on life, telling them to hold on. This song saved my life when I was considering suicide. If it can do that, I think it deserves the top spot on this list.

"This world, this world is cold
But you don’t, you don’t have to go
You’re feeling sad, you’re feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
Your mother’s gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bare" - Metal_Treasure

16 Adam's Song - Blink 182

The song is both depressing but uplifting. It deals with topics of depression and loneliness but states that there are always better times ahead of you. - phillysports

Well, it's supposedly about coming home after a long tour, but just look at those lyrics! - lavashooter

Id never thought I'd die alone
Another six months ill be unknown - Lord28

€I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never step foot in my room again
You'll close it off, board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault’ 😭🖤

17 Hurt - Nine Inch Nails

While the Johnny Cash version deals with self-reflection and regret, the Nine Inch Nails version is much more bitter and cynical. In the context of its album, it basically reads as the protagonist's suicide note. - phillysports

A dark suicide note to close an impressive album. - JoLeKosovo

18 Suicidal Thoughts - Notorious B.I.G.
19 One More Light - Linkin Park

How symbolically - Swen

RIP Chester

20 Migraine - Twenty One Pilots

An actual lyrical masterpiece about Tyler Joseph's insecurities and troubling thoughts.

21 I Think I'm Going to Kill Myself - Elton John
22 I'm Sorry - Joyner Lucas

Should be higher, even higher than logic's song

23 No Surprises - Radiohead

My God one of the most beautiful songs ever written. Goosebumps to be very honest.

24 Turn It Off - Paramore

I don't get suicide vibes from this song...

Is that what this song is about? - FondaSu

''And the worst part is
Before it gets any better
We're headed for a cliff
And in the free fall I will realize
I'm better off when I hit the bottom''

25 Jumper - Third Eye Blind

"So step back from that ledge my friend..." Enough said.

26 I Hate Myself and I Want to Die - Nirvana
27 Baby Don't Cut - Bmike
28 Sweet Scarlet - Cat Stevens
29 Rise Above This - Seether

This song is dedicated to Shaun Morgan's brother who committed suicide in 2007.

30 Song for Annie - Petra
31 Suicide Machine - Death
32 World So Cold - Mudvayne

Listen to the song. Need I say more?

I love this

33 When I'm Gone - Eminem
34 Running to the Sea - Röyksopp

A very dark and poignant song about the suicidal tendencies which we all have deep down beneath our skins, only for tragedy or lack of wellbeing to make more prominent, and for those affected to be isolated and surrounded by fear. It does make you think, even if you are content at the present, something could happen to you to spark this tendency, and in the blink of an eye, it goes beyond your control. - PositronWildhawk

35 Don't Try Suicide - Queen

Such a good song So underrated

36 Never Too Late - Three Days Grace

I am appalled that I had to add this song to the list! It should've already been on here. This song literally saved my life when I was half way through a suicide attempt. I know people say that about music all the time, but I honestly don't know if I'd still be here if it wasn't for this song.
The lyrics are so deep and Adam's vocal performance is so emotional. Then all you have to do is add in the amazing guitar riff and awesome video clip and you have the best anti-suicide song of all time.
Play this at my funeral!

37 Gloomy Sunday - Rezso Seress
38 I Want to Die - Mortal Love

Definitely a suicidal song, just listen to these lyrics;

To escape life itself now seems the only solution;
With relief I look forward of letting go of the pain,
Finally... there is peace in my soul;
To lie dead without a concern, without a tear...
I want to die, but really... I am already dead"

39 Don't Jump - Tokio Hotel
40 Grenade - Bruno Mars

Not really a suicide song more of a cheesy love ballad.

41 How Soon is Now - The Smiths

Beautiful and bleak.

42 Alone Again (Naturally) - Gilbert O'Sullivan
43 Did You Wanna Die? - Youth Brigade
44 How to Save a Life - The Fray
45 When It Rains - Paramore
46 Shoot It Out - 10 Years
47 Another Empty Bottle - Katy McAllister
48 All the Kids are Depressed - Jeremy Zucker
49 So Many Tears - 2pac
50 Self Destruction, Pt. 2 - Nine Inch Nails
