The Top 5 Gloomiest Songs About the Middle of Winter

Don't get too excited, everyone. We're fully aware that the weather finally got decent again over the weekend, but we don't want you lulled into a false sense of security. After all, we're still in that post-New Year, pre-Spring black hole and — sun, or no sun — everyone's still poor from the holidays. So in the spirit of being miserable bastards, here are some reasons for you to remain both annoyed and depressed about this most miserable time of year.

5. “February Stars,” Foo Fighters

When Dave Grohl makes sad faces, the general effect on other humans is similar to that of those animal charity commercials where we're forced to stare into the faces of all the lonely kittens and puppies who are about to die in a shelter. When he makes sad noises at the same time that he's pulling sad faces, it pretty much feels like the end of the world. The bit towards the end of this song where he starts yelling makes us want to run to his side with a mug of cocoa and a Snuggie and cuddle him 'til he's all better. Thanks a lot, February, you heartless wench.
