Unfortunately, rock and roll stars have a storied history of living fast and dying young. With the recent passing of Amy Winehouse, the Internet exploded with articles, blogs and tweets about the "27 club", which consists of musicians who passed at the young age of 27. When young kids suddenly have fame and fortune thrust upon them, it can turn out to be the kiss of death. It makes sense, considering the short life span of rock stars, that it's easy to find songs about the subject of dying young. For this playlist I've found 20 songs that have a theme of dying young. Although I hope young artists will live long and healthy lives, something tells me there will be more 27 club members in the future.
