Tear Jerker: Linkin Park
This nu-metal band has some pretty sad songs.
- "Hands Held High" can pump one up, yet make one feel bad.
- Well considering who it was written about...
- 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".
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...
- Dear God, "Leave Out All The Rest":
- "Breaking the Habit". Hell, it brings Chester Bennington to tears.
- "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.
Even the people who never frown eventually break down.
- The latter features a sadly true description of the Stepford Smiler:
- "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 Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
- "Not Alone."
- "Waiting For the End."
- "Debris," from the LPU 12 CD. May double, as with "Roads Untravelled," as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
- "In My Remains".
- "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.
- And for the finale, "Valentines Day."
