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.

[rebelmouse-image 18354963 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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.

100%.

[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.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.
