The Buzzcocks ask the question anyone does after a bad split: "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)"? Everyone has been there, and gotten through the tough times thanks to lots of crying and venting - and creating emotional playlists. This list of punk breaking up songs is a great place to start the compilation. Feeling positively violent after your partner walked out? Crank up The Bouncing Souls' "Wish Me Well (You Can Go to Hell)." Prefer wallowing for a minute? "Love Sucks" by The Adicts is a great song to play.
