People Reveal The Depressing Songs They Listen To When They Want To Feel Even Worse

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...

Fourth of July - Sufjan Stevens.

Well now I'm miserable too, thanks.

"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."

Hallelujah, the Rufus Wainwright version.

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

The Lacrimosa from Mozart's Requiem.

Daddy issues FTW.

Cats in the cradle by Harry Chapin.

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

Hate Me- Blue October.

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

No Doubt - Don't Speak.

Tears. Every time.

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.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day.

Always a winner at karaoke.

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.

Pretty much anything by Portishead.

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

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.

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.

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%.

My Immortal - Evanescence.

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

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris :(.

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

Landslide - Fleetwood Mac.

Save this for your absolute last wit.

Untitled - Simple Plan.

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
