These godfathers of grunge were never exactly known for having cheerful songs.
  • "Something In The Way", depends on your mood.
  • "Come As You Are", with the lyrics "No, I don't have a gun". Oh Kurt...
  • "All Apologies". The final part with the distorted guitar and Kurt singing "All in all is all we are..." is choke-inducing at least.
  • The MTV Unplugged in New York album also has tons of this.
  • On that note, Kurt Cobain's rare "Do Re Mi" demo, on the WTLO box set. It is one of the last songs recorded before his death, and while a lot folkier and more upbeat than his earlier work, it still manages to be tear inducing.
  • "Pennyroyal Tea" can really be depressing (it helps if you pay attention to the lyrics knowing Kurt suffered from gastritis and drug addiction).
  • "Serve The Servants" A song about Cobain's family and childhood. William S. Burroughs, who had collaborated with Cobain, reportedly said that Cobain was already dead upon hearing the song.
  • Anything regarding Cobain's diseases, Artist Disillusionment, or death.
