A list about the most depressing bands/artists ever (pt 1) V2.

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). Then a reference lyric will be used.

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

Album 1 : City Of Evil -2005

(a) Seize The Day - "Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost.It's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over"

Album 2 : Avenged Sevenfold - 2007


(a) Dear God - "A lonely road crossed another cold state line.Miles away from those I love, purpose hard to find"



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.

Album 1 : A.M. - 1995


(a) Box Full of Letters - "You'll come back again.And I'll still be your friend"

(b) Should Have been In Love - "Your life's been stinking, your heart's been shrinking.And you're too busy thinking to stop.You blink and you're blue"



Album 2: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot -2002

Reference Tracks

(a) I am Trying To Break Your Heart - "I'd always thought that if I held you tightly.You'd always love me like you did back then.Then I fell asleep and the city kept blinking.What was I thinking when I let you back in?"

(b) Jesus, Etc- "I'll be around.You were right about the stars.Each one is a setting sun"

(c) I'm The Man Who Loves You- "If I could you know I would.just hold your hand and you'd understand.I'm the man who loves you"

Album 3 : Sky Blue Sky - 2007

Reference Tracks

(a) Impossible Germany- "This is important.But I know you're not listening.No I know you're not listening"

(b) Hate it Here- "I try to stay busy.I do the dishes, I mow the lawn.I try to keep myself occupied.Even though I know you're not coming home"

(c)Leave Me Like You Found Me - "Can you believe it.I'm somebody just like you.Content with being blue, honestly.Leave me like you found me"




33.Arcade Fire -
The darlings of the indie- rock world. And with good reason. Probably going to hit mainstream in a big way after the Grammy win for 'Album of the Year'.

Album 1 : Funeral -2004

Reference Tracks

(a) Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) - " But sometimes, we remember our bedrooms,and our parent’s bedrooms,and the bedrooms of our friends.Then we think of our parents,well what ever happened to them?!"


(b)Wake up -"Somethin’ filled up my heart with nothin’,someone told me not to cry."


Album 2 : Neon Bible -2007

Reference tracks

(a) Keep The Car Running -"There’s a weight that’s pressing down.Late at night you can hear the sound.Even the noise you make when you sleep.Can’t swim across a river so deep"


(b) My Body Is a Cage -"I'm standing on the stage of fear and self-doubt.It's a hollow play,but they'll clap anyway"


Album 3 : The Suburbs - 2010

Reference Tracks

(a) We Used to Wait -"We used to wait.We used to waste hours just walking around.We used to wait.All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown"


(b)Ready To Start - "Now you're knocking at my door saying please come out against the night.But I would rather be alone than pretend I feel alright"


32. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - The best indie trio about right now? With songs of angst and lost love

Album 1 : Fever to tell -2003

Reference Tracks

(a) Maps- "Wait, they don't love you like i love you"


Album 2 : Show Your Bones -2006

Reference Tracks


(a) The Sweets -"The end will shelter me away from me .Can we meet again ?Meet and meet and meet and meet again"




31. Audioslave - Came from an angry group (Rage Against the Machine) and a grunge-downer one (Soundgarden). Had to be here.

Album 1: Audioslave - 2003

Reference Tracks

(a)Show Me How to Live - "Nail in my hand from my creator.You gave me life,now show me how to live"

(b) Shadow on the Sun - "Staring at the loss, looking for the cause and never really sure.Nothing but a hole, to live without a soul and nothing to be learned."


Album 2: Out of Exile -2005

Reference Tracks


(a) Heaven's Dead -"Best time you had for the best time you had.Heaven's dead when you get sad"
