Here is a list of angry break up songs for guys and girls. There is no censoring of feelings in these, just the honest truth about feeling hurt and angry. One may assume that angry songs have a similar sound, perhaps of limiting music tastes. However, this list can prove that different musicians will portray anger in many different ways.
Angry Break Up Songs For Guys
- Alternative Rock – Ben Folds Five – Song For The Dumped
In a way, this song makes light of the situation. It is quite upbeat and chirpy, but no doubt screaming the lyrics at the top of your voice is bound to make anyone feel better. This song is especially suited to those who feel they have spent a lot of money on a girl while she has done nothing but hurt them.
- Punk – Unsung Zeros – By The End Of The Day
This song describes the common situation of realizing that the girl you are with is not the one for you and she is constantly bringing you down but somehow you are just unable to stay away. Towards the end, the singer seems to make a pact with himself to leave and get his life back.
- Pop Punk – Blink 182 – Time To Break Up
At the start of this song, the singer is sick and tired of putting up with this girl’s crap and they should break up. He then wonders if he has made a huge mistake as he misses her a lot. By the end, he realized the best thing to do is let her go and move on.
- Alternative Rock – Three Days Grace – (I Hate) Everything About You
This song can be interpreted many different ways. To me, this song is about having contradicting feelings about a person, and the confusion that comes with this. But, as the title suggests, it is a great song to dedicate to someone who has hurt you.
- Punk Rock – 28 Days – This song’s about you
This is quite an abstract angry song. It seems to be dedicated to someone who has put the singer through a lot of shit.
Angry Break Up Songs For Girls
- Folk Rock Ani Di Franco – Untouchable Face
The singer has found out her love interest in fact is with another woman. She is incredibly angry. She doesn’t feel she should by vying for his touch. She doesn’t want to see him again.
- Alternative Rock – Alanis Morisette – You Ought to Know
A classic song about being angry at a man who has left to be with another woman. I find singing the lyrics to this to be most therapeutic but they do (intentionally or not) also seem to make light of the situation.
- Alternative Pop – The Murmurs – You Suck
It is somewhat unlikely that this song is meant to be serious. It is probably the most fun to sing along to out of the whole list.
Well, there you have it, I hope you have enjoyed my list of angry break up songs for guys and girls.
