This nu-metal band [[TearJerker has some pretty sad songs]].
----
%%Admin's note: Make sure to say ''why'' they're tearjerkers, not just the name
* "Hands Held High" can pump one up, yet make one feel bad.
** Well, considering [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush who it was written about]], this was inevitable.
* In more or less the same vein, the video for "Shadow of the Day".
* "The Little Things Give You Away" is another one.
* And then there's "My December" and "Leave Out All the Rest". '''Especially''' the latter:
--> When my time comes,
--> Forget the wrong that I've done,
--> Help me leave behind some,
--> Reasons to be missed,
--> Don't resent me,
--> And when you're feeling empty,
--> Keep me in your memory,
--> Leave out all the rest...
* [[DrugsAreBad "Breaking the Habit"]] was written by Mike Shinoda before he met Chester Bennington, about a close friend of his and his struggles with drugs.
** Reportedly, Chester [[RealitySubtext related to the lyrics so much]] that he [[ManlyTears was reduced to a blubbering mess]] after first reading them.
* "The Messenger" and "Iridescent" are a couple more.
* "Numb" (especially with the video) and "In Between".
* "Robot Boy" is pretty sad too.
* "Krwlng", "With You" (and "Wth>You"), and "P5hng Me A*wy" are more sad ones.
** The latter features a sadly true description of the StepfordSmiler:
--> Even the people who never frown eventually break down.
* "Somewhere I Belong."
* "Burning in the Skies." I'm swimming in the smoke, of bridges I have burned...
** The music video, which depicts the ordinary lives of people just before a nuclear bomb hits isn't exactly uplifting.
* "In The End", too.
* "Roads Untravelled" can definitely bring back some memories. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* "Not Alone."
* "Blackbirds".
* "Waiting For the End." A song that profusely apologizes for any bad blood caused by what is presumably an outburst from the singer, pleading for the listener to move on.
* "Debris," from the LPU 12 CD. May double, as with "Roads Untravelled," as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* "In My Remains".
* The music video of "Castle of Glass" opens with a child being informed that his father died at war.
* "The Catalyst". God save us everyone, will we burn inside the fires of A Thousand Suns..
* "Until It's Gone," "Drawbar," "Final Masquerade," and (though rather YMMV, and this applies only to the quiet, subdued sections of the song at the beginning and end of the song, respectively, in which Mike is singing) "A Line in the Sand," all of which from ''The Hunting Party.''
* The title track to "One More Light," especially in light of [[Music/{{Soundgarden}} Chris Cornell's]] death and especially especially in light of Chester Bennington's suicide.
--> Who cares if one more light goes out?
--> In a sky of a million stars, it flickers, flickers
--> Who cares when someone's time runs out?
--> If a moment is all we are or quicker, quicker
--> Who cares if one more light goes out?
--> Well, I do.
* And for the finale, "Valentine's Day."
* The song/[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dmQ3QWpy1Q video]] for "Heavy" shows how much Chester was destroyed inside from depression before his passing. Many fans could relate to his pain from this song especially though we could never have predicted how deeply he felt that pain and how it wasn't just an angry white guy song. It was a warning/cry for help from a seriously hurting man. The lyrics almost read like the suicide note he never left.
%%Stop listing Chester Bennington's suicide. As stated multiple times including at the top of this very page, this is for tearjerkers in their music. Not real life.
