Top 10 Best Songs About Suicide In 2022

Cemetery Drive – My Chemical Romance

For a lady who is tortured by romantic remorse, Cemetery Drive is a depressing tune. The wife was having an extramarital affair with a man who was not her husband’s business partner. After her husband discovers the affair, the woman is overcome with remorse and grief. Because she can’t face the consequences of her actions, she decides to end her suffering by killing herself. This is the lyric from My Chemical Romance’s debut live DVD, Life on the Murder Scene.

Everybody Hurts – R.E.M

‘Everybody Hurts’ was a message to R.E.M.’s young followers to persevere and keep their hopes up for the future. The song’s whole focus was on raising awareness about the dangers of suicide among young people. Automatic for the People was the band’s debut album, released in 1992, and the song served as the album’s opening track. A British emotional support listening service, “The Samaritans,” utilized the song’s lyrics in an ad campaign to raise awareness of the high suicide rates among young males.

Elizabeth on the Bathroom Floor – Eels

Opening track on the Electro-Shock Blues Album was Elizabeth on the Bathroom Floor. Everett’s mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and his sister was through Electric Shock Therapy at the time of the song’s composition, therefore the album serves as a kind of memoir for him (E.S.T.) Elizabeth, Mark Oliver Everett’s sister, is the narrator of the song. Sadly, she took her own life. There are many difficult topics addressed on the album, including death, disease and suicide.

Suicide Solution – Ozzy Osbourne

One of the most contentious songs on this list is Suicide Solution. Drinking alcohol may be dangerous, and this song serves as a reminder of that fact. Bon Scott, AC/lead DC’s vocalist, died after a night of heavy drinking, and Osbourne was inspired to create the song by his loss. At the time, Ozzy was battling with his own alcoholism issues.

Ozzy and his record company were sued by the parents of a teenager who shot himself while listening to Osbourne’s album, Speak of the Devil, in 1985. According to some who spoke out, the song had inspired him to take his own life.

Save Myself – Ed Sheeran

Two words sum up the entire song: ‘Life may get you down, so I simply numb the way it feels, I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription medications’

It’s a song by Ed Sheeran on the importance of taking care of oneself while striving to be there for others. Take a break if you’re going through a bad patch in your life and need to reconnect with yourself. The more confident you are, the more likely you are to go above and above for others in your life.

Coming down – Five Finger Death Punch

Five Finger Death Punch’s CD American Capitalist contains the song “Coming Down,” which is a musical suicide note. For the single, they collaborated with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The band’s fans were encouraged to learn more about suicide prevention through the song. The lifeline’s phone number is included as a call to action at the end of the song video.

“Adam’s Song” by blink-182

For a blink-182 song, “Adam’s Song” is a departure from the typical sophomoric and juvenile pop tunes the band is well known for.

Depression and possibly suicide are implied in “Adam’s Song,” a song sung by a depressed man. When I die, you won’t be able to say, “I’m sorry,” because I’m too miserable to continue.

When we’re down, it’s hard to think about other people or how they’d cope without us.

And while it may not be much of a consolation, I can tell you from my experience that people will be affected.

It’s possible that “Adam’s Song” will inspire you to keep going.

“King Of Pain” by The Police

In depression, the world seems colorless and you lose sense of time, making it difficult to focus on anything.

It has been said that the definition of hell is having to live the same day over and over again without any change, which makes sense to me.

“King Of Pain” by The Police is all of that and more.

“I’ve stood here before in the pouring rain/With the world spinning circles racing through my head/I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll stop my reign/But it’s my destiny to be the king of agony,” the song’s chorus says.

While miserable, it’s easy to believe that the entire world is against you and you’re doomed.

When you’re feeling down, turn this music on.

“Mad World” by Tears For Fears

This gloomy piece will be familiar to everyone who has seen the film Donnie Darko.

The narrator of this song is watching the meaninglessness of the world around him.

In these lines: “Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow/There is no future, there is no tomorrow.”

His only option is to decide that the world is a “crazy place” that doesn’t care about him.

Depression makes it all too easy to think and feel this way.

Knowing that you’re not the only one who feels this way is comforting, even if it doesn’t seem that way right now.

“Crawling” by Linkin Park

“Crawling” will resonate with everyone who has ever struggled with anxiety.

Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington may have sung many of the band’s songs based on his own experiences.

The phrases “Crawling in my skin/These wounds will not heal/Fear is how I fall/Confusing what’s true” might be therapeutic for certain people.

There are individuals out there who understand what you’re going through, no matter how worried you are.

Knowing that you’re not the only one who feels this way is comforting, even if it doesn’t seem that way right now.
