A list about the most depressing bands/artists ever (pt 1)

Criteria: My list, my rules. As always. The artist/band has to have two albums from which songs can be picked (off as a minimum). The songs can't be the only depressing song on a happy album (i.e Where is the Love on Elephunk by The Black Eyed Peas , possibly their only good song.) To block that the album needs a minimum of two depressy songs on it, but a max of four or half of 'A rush of blood to the head' will have to be listed. I'm not going to justify why the songs are depressing,I'll just find youtube links.

The list - Probably not that much in order.

35. Avenged Sevenfold -
Noisy, brash, loud, dark and gloomy. Probably going to get even gloomier with the passing of The Rev

Reference Tracks

(a) Seize The Day

(b) Bat Country

Album 2 : Avenged Sevenfold - 2007

Reference tracks

(a) Dear God

34.Wilco - In the later albums, most of the time I have no idea what they're on about. So I guess it's depressing music more than lyrics.
