Many people who have gone through a breakup will tell you that it is much easier to get through when you are mad than sad, which makes our list of the 10 best mad breakup songs a very handy relationship tool. We just hope you don't have to use it too much.
- "Song for the Dumped" by Ben Folds Five The title of this song alone is enough to put it on our list of ten best mad breakup songs, but with lyrics like, "I wish I hadn't bought you dinner / Right before you dumped me on your front porch," this song is a breakup classic. We like the part where he asks for his black T-shirt back, too.
- "Half Your Age and Twice as Hot" by Kid Rock Look out, Pamela Anderson! This one is for you. Kid Rock sings about his breakup with the "Baywatch" babe and her tabloid interviews saying, "And I'm sure you thought I was just gonna sit back and take it on the chin / But honey, I'm a songwriter / And that, darling, is where you end and this song begins." If you ever have the chance to hear him sing this one live, you are in a for a treat.
- "Here's A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) by Travis Tritt This is a good breakup song to listen to if your ex is leaves and wants to come back. Just follow Travis Tritt's lead and say, "Call someone who listens and might give a damn."
- "How Am I Doing" by Dierks Bentley The twist of sarcasm in these lyrics makes this song one of the ten best mad breakup songs. Bentley admits he cries sometimes since his woman left him. But did he mention that they are tears of joy?
- "F*ck You" by Cee-Lo Green Perhaps one of the happiest sounding mad break up songs ever, but the lyrics don't lie.This song is not for those who are sensitive about profanity and because of that, it will not be on the radio anytime soon. However, this song became an Internet sensation in 2010 and anyone who has ever experienced a breakup because of money understands when Cee-Lo Green says, "I guess he's an X-box and I'm more Atari."
- "Rich Girl" by Hall and Oates Before Cee-Lo Green started singing about breakups over money, Hall and Oates were doing it in this 1977 classic. If you have ever been mad about a breakup, you can probably relate to the line, "It's so easy to hurt others / When you can't feel pain."
- "Go Your Own Way" by Fleetwood Mac We are not sure who was more mad about this breakup. Was it Lindsey Buckingham, who wrote the line, "Packing up, shacking up is all you wanna do" or was it Stevie Nicks? After all, she had to sing "Go Your Own Way" knowing the song is about her.
- "I Hate Everything About You" by Three Days Grace Sentiments like, "I hate everything about you / Why do I love you?" combined with some heavy guitar equal the makings of one of the ten best breakup songs.
- "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake Is it about his breakup with Britney or isn't it? Either way, lyrics like, "Girl I refuse / You must have me confused with some other guy / The bridges were burned / Now it's your turn to cry, make it a great breakup song.
- "Don't Stay" by Linkin Park Sometimes we break up with someone because we don't like what we have become in the relationship. If you can relate to that, this mad break up song is for you.
