Breakups suck. But if being emo and crying over a broken heart isn't your style, we've got 14 songs for anyone who wants to throw two middle fingers up to their ex instead and prove no one can tear them down.
While the 2000s were a goldmine for breakup songs (think FOB, Brand New, Dashboard Confessional and AAR), bands in the 2010s are still going strong and giving us perfect material to blast while we burn evidence of a relationship.
Whether you were cheated on, lied to or just dated a complete asshole, these songs will get you through it all. Turn up these tunes that prove, sometimes, it's better to take the low road.
