So I gotta do a presentation in my classic lit class about people who belong in hell, because we're reading Dante's Inferno. Naturally, I decided to do my presentation on musicians who write depressing song lyrics, and put them in the 5th circle of hell.

Any suggestions?

Elliott Smith?
Ian Curtis?
Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes)?
Robert Smith? (although Just Like Heaven might exempt him)

Not that I think any of these are bad. But he asked for depressing lyrics. Goth rock and Omaha came to mind.

EDIT: For what it's worth the first two suggestions DID kill themselves.

Not in hell in the literal sense. But in Dante's vision of hell, depressed people went to hell.

It goes a tad further than that:

"it is the [one] who believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die."

That's true depression which is punished by the fifth circle.

Singer from Joy Division.

Kurt Cobain.

Guy from Staind tends to write depressing lyrics.

Anyone on any mainstream top 40 chart ever.

Using the criteria: Gaahl. Although he'd probably like it there.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

Kurt Cobain would be perfect if it wasn't for him already being a tree in the wood of suicides.
