List Rules Songs with "cut" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about self-harm as a subject.

This is a ranked list of the best songs about cutting and other forms of self-harm, as voted on by music fans like you. Songs like "The Way She Feels" by Between The Trees show the ugly side of being a cutter and what it's like to make yourself bleed, while other tracks are simply about people hurting themselves in general. Some of the songs included below may have the words "cut," "scar," or "bleed" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about self-harm as a subject or theme.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the self-harm songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
