Top 10 Suicide Songs

The Top Ten

1 Fade To Black - Metallica

One of the greatest songs ever written

"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 Falling Away from Me - Korn
6 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

7 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

8 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

9 Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne
10 Chop Suey - System of a Down

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

The Newcomers

? Self Destruction, Pt. 2 - Nine Inch Nails
? I Want to Die - Mortal Love

The Contenders

11 Last Resort - Papa Roach

"Cut my life into pieces
I’ve reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing
Don’t give a [email protected] 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

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 Suicide Note Pt. 2 - Pantera
14 I Hate Myself and I Want to Die - Nirvana
15 Turn It Off - Paramore
16 I Think I'm Going to Kill Myself - Elton John
17 When I'm Gone - Eminem
18 Suicidal Thoughts - Notorious B.I.G.
19 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

20 Rise Above This - Seether

This song is dedicated to Shaun Morgan's brother who committed suicide in 2007. - BoredJeff02
