Though recorded and performed by many singers,
"Gloomy Sunday" is closely associated with Billie Holliday,
who scored a hit version of the song in 1941.
Due to unsubstantiated urban legends about its inspiring hundreds of suicides,
"Gloomy Sunday" was dubbed the "Hungarian suicide song" in the U.S.
Seress did commit suicide in 1968,
but most other rumors of the song being banned from radio,
or sparking suicides, are unsubstantiated, and
were partly propagated as a deliberate marketing campaign.

So, is listening to the song like watching the video from The Ring, except it makes you self-pwn?

Hey I like that song!
I'm still alive though.
Yeah, blame it on the song for the suicides, tsch. (T.T")
It's the stupidity of the people who interpreted the song in another way that cause the suicides.
