List Rules Vote up your favorite (if sad) punk songs about killing yourself.

Punk songs about suicide are, in true punk form, often angry diatribes about why a person killed themselves. Suicide is an intensely emotional subject, especially for those left behind. These punk suicide songs are some of the most powerful and moving of them all.

You’ll notice that some of these punk songs about killing yourself are from a more pop-punk genre, but they are equally powerful in their own way. Case in point: “Adam’s Song” by Blink-182. From the opening lines - “I never thought I'd die alone/I laughed the loudest who'd have known?" - it is clear this is a suicide song from the perspective of the person who is killing himself. It’s gut-wrenching.

Many times, music of any genre can provide comfort when someone is in crisis. Such is the case with these punk songs about killing yourself. Sometimes, it just helps to know that someone else in this world understands what you’re going through, and that you aren’t alone.

Vote up the punk songs about suicide that you think are the most powerful and moving. And if you, or someone you know, is contemplating suicide, there is help. Visit suicidepreventionlifeline.org or call 1-800-273-8255 for more information.
