Original: Top 10 Post-Break Up Songs

I dont care what anyone says, if you’ve just been broken up with, you are not a happy person. And pretty much nothing about you is happy for the next few weeks, or months, or (hopefully not) years. First things first, let’s listen to some good ole’ break-up jams. Then we’ll get back to the sobbing, bitching, and late night text messages. Try to keep it together while I list my top 10 post-break-up songs.

Songs are in no particular order.
1.) The Acacia Strain – Whoa! Shut it Down.
This song tells it exactly like it is. You really, really, really dislike this person. And you wan’t to tell them. In a very violent way. It includes the lyric “You will learn to breathe through a straw.” Yeesh.
2.) Liferuiner – You Look Better When You’re Drunk
I think the intro says it all, but the lyrics that follow are about as mean as it gets. Demeaning, violent, and, at times, very scary, this song does a good job of getting this message across “I’m going to say awful things about you, but deep down, I’m just deeply hurt, you bitch.”

3.) Ben Folds Five – Song for the Dumped

Pretty self-explainatory. I’d recommend this to anyone that not only lost a girlfriend, but a lot of money as well.

4.) The Used – All That I’ve Got

This one is pretty much just sad and pathetic. Admittedly one of my favorites, this song is all about missing what you had, but acting like you don’t. Good when you feel like you can’t escape that “My life is shit” feeling.

5.) LEGEND – Suffering

I just like this one for the lyric “Inside, I never wanted to be loved by you.” Keep telling yourself that and maybe it’ll come true.

6.) Cee-Lo Green – Fuck You

This song’s got a pretty obvious sentiment, and it’s catchy as hell.

7.) Evanescense – Call Me When You’re Sober

This is one for the ladies. For when you’re awesome and your ex is a douche bag who wants what he can’t have.

“You never call me when you’re sober. You only want it ’cause its over.”

8.) For the Fallen Dreams – Two Twenty Two

Make sure you tell this idiot it’s in the past, and they won’t be getting the best of you.

9.) Emmure – You Got A Henna Tattoo That Said Forever

“Movie quotes and lyrics still connecting us like constellations. I wonder if I could ever seperate myself from this. And it’ll be awhile ’til I can breathe again.”

10.) Ugly Kid Joe – Everything About You

Oh man, just listen to it.
