As this list of sad songs demonstrates, there are many reasons to break down in tears — a broken heart, death, or the crazy ending to your favorite rock band. No matter what the situation, chances are somebody somewhere probably wrote a song about it, putting into words what you can’t (probably because you’re too busy bawling your eyes out to think clearly). So grab a box of tissues and check out our list of the 5 Saddest Classic Rock Songs Ever.
A cursory listen to ‘All My Love’ may lead you to believe it’s one of Led Zeppelin’s rare love songs (as opposed to their plentiful sex songs). But the cut was actually written in tribute to Robert Plant‘s five-year-old son, who died of a stomach infection while Zeppelin were on tour. Granted, lines like “Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time / His is the force that lies within / Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find / He is a feather in the wind” are pretty vague, but trust us on this one.
