Most miserable band?

yo dudes

been listening to some heavy stuff like these bands. and wondering which bands are the most miserable? by miserable i mean bands that just writing sad, depressive music

ones that ring to mind:

joy division (where is the 'joy' in joy division?)

portishead

the smiths- no dancing around the point, just write a song about some form of depression, hell even title it depressively "heaven knows im miserable now"

radiohead

depeche mode- or is it depressed mode?

massive attack- they spiralled down dark matter on mezzanine after a reasonably bright start with blue lines

I found a huge amount of 90's bands to be very depressing, a reason why I'm not too fond of it as a musical decade. (I prefer music that is dark, but more as in being mysterious, not so much depressing.) Nirvana would certainly be an example, but honestly I'm not very familiar with most of those bands.

Joy Divisions were the huts containing the women who were forced to prostitute themselves to Nazi officers on leave in the book The House Of Dolls.

And excerpt of that book makes up the middle verse of the song "No Love Lost".

I find the Smiths uplifting for some odd reason. A lot of their lyrical content was pretty miserable, but the songs were structured in a way that they had pop sensibility to them.

I can only think of two Smiths songs that were actually funny lyrical wise, Panic and Girlfriend In A Coma.

Nine Inch Nails.

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'm kidding. No intentions of playing in traffic.)
