Whether it was a bad breakup with an ex-significant other or a falling out with a former friend, listening to angry songs is one way to cope with such stressful and emotionally-damaging events. Instead of expressing your anger through actions, here are seven songs to listen to when you want to tell someone “f*ck you.”
7) “You Suck At Love” by Simple Plan
One very common theme that occurs within Simple Plan’s discography is relatable lyrical content. While this song has no intention of triggering any type of sad emotions, “You Suck At Love” from Get Your Heart On is a fun and catchy pop rock track that is ultimately telling someone you were once intimate with to f-ck off. It is all about not caring about the aftermath, even though you may have been screwed over by the other person.
6) “Seventy Times Seven” by Brand New
This song will always be a fan-favorite for many. More than likely about the lead vocalist’s spite toward his former best friend for stealing his girlfriend at the time, the lyrical content couldn’t be more straight-forward with expressing hatred toward the other person. Telling someone “f-ck you” is written all over in this song, especially in the lines Have another drink and drive yourself home; I hope there’s ice on all the roads; And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt and again when your head goes through the windshield.
5) “Okay, I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t” by Brand New
Another Brand New song that allegedly refers to the same feud addressed in “Seventy Times Seven,” this track from Deja Entendu starts out slow in the beginning and then picks up with its catchy chorus. And the lyrical content in this song? Well, not only is it telling the cheating significant other how much she messed up, but it is also reflecting on how the drama and aftermath from the feud still lurks in the present.
4) “Thanks To You” by All Time Low
Clearly sarcastic with the song title itself, All Time Low is basically telling someone toxic in their life how much emotional damage that person has caused and “thanking” them for bringing the protagonist to an all-time low (see what I did there?) In fact, I think one of the favorite lines that occurs in this song is there’s not a night that I sleep quiet and complacent without my medication.
3) “The Best Thing (That Never Happened)” by We Are The In Crowd
Probably appealing more to girls than guys, this song is all about the girl feeling screwed over by the guy and telling him how he will regret everything because she is the best thing that never happened to him. Full of resentment and anger, “The Best Thing” is the perfect song for telling someone “f-ck you” after being mistreated.
2) “Tell Me I’m A Wreck” by Every Avenue
Every Avenue is a band name that people probably haven’t heard in awhile, but what is neat about their most popular song “Tell Me I’m A Wreck” is how it takes a different approach in addressing a failing relationship. Rather than the girl being the one who ends the relationship, this song is all about the guy realizing how much of a hot mess she is and how he doesn’t care enough about her to deal with all of the drama and baggage she carries with her. Talk about a little harsh and blunt!
1) “If You Can’t Hang” by Sleeping With Sirens
One of Sleeping With Siren’s most popular songs, this track is about letting go of a failing relationship. In this song, the guy is realizing that the girl is no longer who she used to be, so he basically tells her to get out of his life. Hence the lines, if you can’t hang, there’s the door and I hope that Mr. Right puts up with all of the bullshit that you do.
