5. Nirvana - 'Something in the Way'

There's a lot of competition for the title of saddest Nirvana song, but "Something in the Way" is a very strong candidate. The slow ballad, which recounts Kurt Cobain's supposed time sleeping under a bridge in Aberdeen, Washington wraps up Nevermind. He recorded the track solo and acoustic, and the rest of the band later cut their parts. Rarely has Kurt sounded this vulnerable and raw. The version on MTV Unplugged is even more intense.
