Misery loves company, and sometimes sadness just broods other sadness. This is for you, fellow gluttons for punishment.

unicorns_and_vodka asked When you're feeling down what's the most depressing song you listen to make you feel even more depressed?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

It's like middle school all over again.

I Miss You, Blink-182.

For those really, really deep feels...

[rebelmouse-image 18354961 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Fourth of July - Sufjan Stevens.

Well now I'm miserable too, thanks.

[rebelmouse-image 18354962 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Heaven knows I'm miserable now" by The Smiths. I like that the melody is extremely upbeat, but the lyrics are a total downer that I relate to immensely lol.

My favorite line is "two lovers entwined pass me by, and heaven knows I'm miserable now."

R.I.P. Chester.

Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park.

Ah, the rabbit hole of "I'm lonely, omg, more."

[rebelmouse-image 18354964 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hallelujah, the Rufus Wainwright version.

IMHO: one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces of music ever written.

[rebelmouse-image 18354965 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem.

Daddy issues FTW.

[rebelmouse-image 18354966 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cats in the cradle by Harry Chapin.

Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you.

[rebelmouse-image 18354967 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Hate Me- Blue October.

When I couldn't get a girl as a teen... oh, wait.

[rebelmouse-image 18354968 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

No Doubt - Don't Speak.

Tears. Every time.

[rebelmouse-image 18354969 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tears in Heaven is about Eric Clapton asking his 4-year-old son who died falling out a window if he would even recognize him in heaven since he died so young.

A day in the life of a Millennial.

[rebelmouse-image 18354970 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day.

Always a winner at karaoke.

[rebelmouse-image 18354972 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Lullaby by Billy Joel. It's so sweet and a little sad sounding, and it's from a dad who loved his kid. My dad left and didn't love me, and now he's dead. So yeah, that song tears me up.

For those long, late-night walks.

[rebelmouse-image 18354973 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pretty much anything by Portishead.

When you feel like you don't belong there...

[rebelmouse-image 18354974 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Creep by Radiohead.

Adding this one again, because Mozart's untimely death is sad af. And no, Salieri didn't wite the Reqiuem. Mozart died after writing the Lacrymosa.

[rebelmouse-image 18354976 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not a song per se but Mozart's Requiem.

No, I'm not trying to be an edgy Redditor who thinks he's the hottest shit.

It just depresses me, especially the haunting vocals in the Lacrymosa part. The real sad part is that Mozart died so young, which makes me realize how, dunno, fitting fleeting life really is.

The more you know, the more you cry.

[rebelmouse-image 18354977 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Amazing by Blue October, some of his songs are good for this. If you don't know, the lead singer has bipolar disorder and sings a lot about his life and emotions, it can be beautiful and sometimes heart wrenching.


[rebelmouse-image 18354978 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My Immortal - Evanescence.

When you just want to recuse yourself from existence...

[rebelmouse-image 18354979 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris :(.

Pretty much anything sung by Stevie Nicks continues the cycle...

[rebelmouse-image 18354980 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Landslide - Fleetwood Mac.

Save this for your absolute last wit.

[rebelmouse-image 18354982 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Untitled - Simple Plan.

For closeted individuals, coming out is a rite of passage in life that LGBTQ+ people never signed up for.

Why is it that anyone who inherently identifies a certain way has to explain themselves to those who are confused and unwavering in their socialized ignorance?

Times have changed and while there have been advances made for LGBTQ+ people to find more acceptance and feel less like an "other," there are still many challenges to overcome.

Even with gay role models prevalent in pop culture, it can still be difficult for gay youth today to come out to a parent who chooses to live in the past and align themselves to antiquated ideals in society that prevents them from loving their child as they are.

But sometimes, the response after opening up to a parent in a vulnerable moment can prove that unconditional love is the best thing in the entire world.

Everyone loves a good mystery or ghost story, particularly one with a massive twist regarding one of the main characters.

But surely, stories like this never happen in real life?

Such as finding yourself stuck on the side of the road, when a guardian angel of sorts comes and helps you, seemingly out of nowhere, then disappears just as mysteriously.

Or getting a call warning you about something which sounds far-fetched, then happens three weeks later?

Surely, these are the types of situations only found in the work of Shirley Jackson or Edgar Allen Poe.

Or are they?

We've all made clumsy mistakes that we know could have been avoided had we used a little bit more good judgment and common sense.

Thankfully, these silly mistakes don't usually harm others or ourselves.

This is why it's hard to see people knowingly perform reckless or dangerous activities which they know might have serious consequences.

While we don't usually wish these people ill, we also have a hard time feeling bad for them, as they knew what they were getting themselves in for.

As some people might say, they "f*cked around and found out" or "play stupid games, win stupid prizes."

Being horny can lead to some questionable decision-making.

Something happens to the brain when blood is flowing to other regions of the body.

They should discuss this in health class.

It's perfectly normal, but we have to learn how to deal.
