Tom Waits, The Buzzcocks, The Cure (I'm think Wish era here...)and the Slackers. (Why the girlies gotta break Vicks heart?)

I am a huge proponent of Listenign to Tom Waits's "Blue Valentines" and crying. Try it!

Butthole Surfers. Any emo is pretty sad, but its also pretty crappy. Ani Difranco was sad there for a while, but then she got married. I dunno- I think all bands have had their sad moments.

I like them but after listening to them too much you start feeling like stepping in front of an oncoming car might not be a bad thing.
I cannot listen to too much NIN cause they have such depressing music. I can handle an album, but anymore and I start feeling strange. Hehe, sorry Seadog.

Hayden's "Everything I Long For" is a sad beauty.

If you want to hear depressing, just flick on the radio. That depresses me every time.

I agree, I find the Smiths uplifting too - even with miserable lyric content.

How about the Violent Femmes? When I wasn't listening to U2 in the 80's then I listened to the Cure, Depeche Mode, Smiths, REM and Violent Femmes! My boyfriend at the time was great at picking out bands and I fell in love with the Violent Femmes after we had 8th row seats. Before that, I couldn't get past the name to even listen to them! Funny how most of the bands I listened to are now in this miserable band thread!

I never did warm up to the Butthole Surfers though...

Listen to Springsteen's "Nebraska" too, I always feel like standing on a road waiting for the cars to run me over after that one.

Everytime I turn on the radio, I regret it. So depressing.
