PLAYLIST: Angry Breakup Jams
So the opening track off of Cloud Nothings' excellent new LP Attack on Memory has got us thinking... What are some great angry break-up songs? Well, check out "No Future/No Past" and others below and stream the playlist above.
1.) "No Future/No Past" - Cloud Nothings (Attack on Memory)
Dylan Baldi is angry as this guitar tweaker builds into it's euphoric ending.
2.) "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" - Radiohead (In Rainbows)
So what if it was just a first date. If Thom Yorke is angry you fucked up.
3.) "Post Break Up Sex" - The Vaccines (What Did You Expect From the Vaccines?)
More lighthearted, but it fits.
4.) "Somebody That I Used to Know" - Gotye (Making Mirrors)
Ashton might use this to get over Demi.
5.) "Little Black Submarines" - The Black Keys (El Camino)
"a broken heart is blind."
6.) "Our Riotous Defects" - of Montreal (False Priest)
Who the fuck kills a beta fish?
7.) 'Tribulations" - LCD Soundsystem (LCD Soundsystem)
Get over it bitch.
8.) "Cheerleader" - St. Vincent (Strange Mercy)
For the ladies.
9.) "Next Girl" - The Black Keys (Brothers)
Multiple TBK songs would fit on this list.
10.) "The Rat" - The Walkmen (Bows + Arrows)
11.) "MoneyGrabber" - Fitz & the Tantrums (Pickin' Up the Pieces)
12.) "Rearviewmirror" - Pearl Jam (Vs.)
The most intense song on this list probably.
13.) "Vomit" - Girls (Father, Son, Holy Ghost)
14.) "Take It Or Leave It" - The Strokes (Is This It)
When the Strokes were innocent and Julian was still vulnerable.
15.) "Girls Like You" - The Naked and Famous (Passive Me, Aggressive You)
Lovely back and forth. Both for the ladies and the gents.
