I love depressing music.. so let's see. Currently, I think of:

NIN - Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral
Cure - Wish, Distinigration (sp?)
Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
Leonard Cohen - his best of releases are very heavy
Hole - Live Through This
Coldplay - Parachutes, AROBTTH
Radiohead - OK Computer
Damien Rice - O
Garden State Soundtrack
U2 - Achtung Baby (so much so that I can't even listen to it.)

That's all I can think of right now.

Beck - Sea Change. I yearn for the day when I can listen to this album and appreciate its sublime qualities without becoming horribly depressed about my own life.

The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. It probably didn't help that this was the album being constantly played by my friends during the worst year of my life (so far). But even when I listened to it by myself, by choice, it still depressed me greatly. I still think it's one of the best albums I own, though.

There you have it.....A great, but utterly depressing album of nothing but break up music.

ANYTHING by Leonard Cohen makes me want to slit my wrists with dull, rusty razors.

I do not like his new one, Dear Heather I think it is.

I love depressing music. I can't believe no one's mentioned the Smiths. Anyway...the Jay Farrar side of Uncle Tupelo is also beautifully depressing.

A couple of songs come to mind as well. Radiohead's Fake Plastic Trees is gorgeously hard-hitting. And Tom Waits' Kentucky Avenue makes me cry delicious tears into my bourbon every time.

Yes, the Smiths are frighteningly despressing (it doesn't help that they had some of their most depressing songs sounded happy musically), as is Morrissey.

And Tom Waits... God, Rain Dogs is pretty intense if you really listen. "Time" goes without saying

Sea Change is a really sad album, yes.

Nick Drake...but I love it. Still, I find many songs of his depressing, especially black eyed dog.

I find the smiths amusing most of the time...in a good way, that is.

Bob Dylan--Blood On The Tracks
Beck--Sea Change
Beck--Mutations
Bruce Springsteen--Nebraska
The Streets--A Grand Don't Come For Free
The Cure--Disintegration...well, most of their other albums, too!
Weezer--Weezer (the blue one)
Wilco--Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Boston--Boston (seriously!)
The Velvet Underground--The Velvet Underground

...Well, those're a few, I guess. There are TONS more, but those spring to mind; that must mean that they're at least a bit sadder than some others. Beck, for the record, has recorded a WIDE array of crippling songs; I'd say that he's only really got two (maybe three, if you count One Foot In The Grave, which I didn't list) sad albums, but man...he's got doozies sprinkled all over his catalogue.

Radiohead - OK Computer. "Exit Music" has got to be the ultimate song to commit suicide to.
