I Didn't Understand by Elliott Smith always does it for me. Quite a bit of Elliott's music is on the sad side actually.
Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey
I ache in the places where I used to play.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

Alice in chains. Jar of flies.

Radiohead makes me want to spin around in cirlces with my arms out in an open field looking at the clouds wearing a businesss suit. I don't think that counts as depressing though.

Anything by Leonard Cohen. Especially 'Famous Blue Raincoat', 'The Stranger Song', 'So Long Marianne' and 'The Partisan'.

Neil Young's 'Helpless' and Don McLean's 'Vincent' and 'The Grave' are good.

'Harvest' by Opeth.

Nirvana's cover of 'Where Did You Sleep Last Night?'

when u sing about tidal waves and end of the world stuff, it gets a bit depressing.

A lot of Staind's songs are good for feeling down ...they're sad, yet redemptive, there's generally a positive side to the gloom. For all out angst, though, "Waste" or "Suffer" will do nicely.

"Cemetery Gates" by Pantera... "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton ..."Bother" by Stone Sour. All of those three have that MUSICAL (not just lyrical) quality that feel really poignant and sad.

I love the Mountain Goats!

and as mentioned before, Elliott Smith. You could go with the now famous "Needle in the Hay" or one of my favorites "A Fond Farewell"

Whoah

Did you all miss the obvious

The Cure - Pornography (full album)
Joy Division - either of their two albums

Individual songs -

NIN - Piggy
Sisters of Mercy - Marian
Christian Death - Romeo's Distress
Sol Invictus - No Gods, Old London Weeps
Death in June - She Said Destroy, The Honour of Silence
Skinny Puppy - Cult
Mira - There Is No Other Way
and of course the legendary Gloomy Sunday, probably most notably performed by Billie Holiday.

Enjoy your wallowing!
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Pearl Jam can do some pretty sad stuff.

And I second the guy that said John Frusciante.
