Tearjerker / X Japan

  • Holy shit Art of Life. Oh dear god "Art of Life", basically the band's biggest tearjerker in history, even worse if you remember this is Yoshiki's autobiographical song regarding his life up to that point. Talk about being The Woobie...
  • "Unfinished" from Blue Blood, jesus...
  • "Tears", just Tears. A song literally about Yoshiki's lament over the tragic suicide of his father. Makes it worse that it was played after the end of The Last Live, the final (at the time at least) show of X Japan.
    • Even more in dedication to Hide and Taiji...
  • "Forever Love", especially since it was the last song Toshi and Yoshiki played together at hide's funeral.
  • The breakdown of Toshi and Yoshiki's friendship, to see the two biggest Heterosexual Life-Partners fall apart due to immense Sanity Slippage from Yoshiki's side and Toshi flat out suffering Artist Disillusionment and being corrupted by a cult made things go to a boil. It makes it worse when Toshi endured suffering from Home of the Heart and Yoshiki couldn't do anything until years later.
  • hide and later on Taiji's deaths. While hide's death was a tragic event, Taiji's death is more of a shocker and flat out saddening What Could Have Been, as Taiji was on a road to recovery...
  • "The Last Song", basically a closing for the band. Granted they did reunite but still...
