Favourite CDs/ Bands to listen to when we're down?

its all about mood sometimes, but which Cds are just brill for you to plug in when you feel like the whole world is against you or youre feeling really pissed off?

heres a list

Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral - you want a record thats a bit fcked up, and tells you youre feeling depressed? plug this record in and youre in prozac heaven!

The Cure - Disintegration - nice record for anyone to listen to if youre feeling isolated or got dumped! the title track is a thing of beauty

The Cure - Pornography - "it doesnt matter if we all die" interesting first line for the album isnt it?

Depeche Mode - Songs of Faith and Devotion / Violator - depeche mode = depressed mode?

Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible - some of the lyrics of this album is fcked beyond comprehension

Soundgarden does it for me...but they get me hyper and angry
I've been in a mood lately and The Cure "Pictures of you" is fitting my mood perfectly...except it's making me cry everytime
Let me think about some others.

Pearl Jam and the Tragically Hip would be my choices.

Lots of dark brooding references with some wit thrown in for good measure.

The perfect end to a crappy day.

I almost forgot - U2.

The perfect beginning, middle or end to everyday.

U2 takes me out of the bad moods. That's why I like them so much.

I've got a mixture CD of some really sad songs. It's good to go with the mood and have a big ole cry sometimes, imho. Somehow it feels very cleansing. Music can't really lift me from serious sadness, only time does that.

Bright Eyes - Fevers And Mirrors - I've spent many nights driving around and crying my eyes out while blasting that disc.

Ryan Adams - Love Is Hell - A quote from Ryan about it: "I wanted to make a druggy suicide record; a record that really sounded like cracking up."

Whiskeytown - Pneumonia - This particularly hits me hard when I am lonesome for my hometown and my friends there.

Palace Music - Arise, therefore


it tells me that it is possible to resign to the sadness that is life without being defeated by it

I'm going through a divorce right now and Love is Hell 1 & 2 and Rock n Roll are three discs I just can't get enough of.

Confession...
I've never really listened to Ryan Adams.
I've heard "when the stars go blue", and I know people here are big fans...but I just don't know any of his music.
I'm kind of going through some funny emotions now and I'm thinking I need to pick up this album you all are talking about (Love is hell)-is it two albums?
Thanks
Mrs.Clayton

I never heard any of his solo stuff except 'So Alive' on MTV2, I had liked Wiskeytown stuff so the next day I went out and bought Love is Hell Pt.1 and 2 and Rock n Roll. He's now my new obsession.

Love is Hell is 2 EPs. Check out his website, you can stream his songs there.

Hmmmm, so many.

For differing reasons:

The Cure - (though not as gothy as others mentioned here before, 'Faith' is probably their most depressing album in my opinion)
AFI - Many songs of the depressing nature
Bouncing Souls - (they have so many uplifting songs, it's good stuff to un-depress yourself to )
Bauhaus - Not necessarily depressing, but you cant get much darker
Radiohead - Many a depressing/sad song
The Smiths - Many a depressing/sad song
Minor Threat - Pure anger, can feel good when depressed
Beck - 'Sea Change' album, pretty sad stuff

That's all I can think of right now (or all I want to name so that I dont look too goth )
