Maybe I am just a strange guy, but I always found "Fix You" more of an uplifting ballad than a depressing ballad, but indeed, i have been categorized as odd before...

I voted Nine Inch Nails.
Haunted by Gary Numan's pretty depressing, but very beautiful at the same time.

I don't have a problem with Coldplay... probably one of my favorite "pop" bands of our times, I guess, but their music by far is not terribly dark or depressing.... I find it seems to be my "uplifting" music, really...

I don't hate them or anything and don't understand the amount of stick they do get, as they aren't completely terrible. But they're very bland and boring. Parachutes and Rush Of Blood To The Head are both alright, I don't rate any of their other albums at all though. I'm not sure how you can find it uplifting, how'd you manage that?

Well, I listen to alot of depressing music... lol.... coldplay's songs are relatively more complacent sounding, and there are uplifting songs in their catalogue, perhaps more so on their most recent album, perhaps? They're a fine band IMO! I also don't understand the stick they get - I am not billing them as the second coming of the rock Jesus, but I just think they're a solid pop / rock band that I enjoy.

Their own, each to. But they're so painfully middle of the road and bland it's beyond belief, I think the reason they get so much stick is because they're a big selling artist that are a bit meh. Just like U2, not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but because of how many records they sell, they get more stick than they'd get say if they sold half the amount of records.

Coldplay are either depressing or dull, I'm thinking a bit of both.

I dont think Coldplays that depressing. Its melancholic, but otherwise there are some very uplifting songs on their albums.

I voted Other though. Why wasnt Joy Division there? Closer put me in a state of depression for about a week.
