List Rules Vote up your favorite punk songs for a breaking up playlist.

Some of the best punk songs about breaking up nail the pain and heartache that come when a relationship fizzles. Leave it to punk musicians to come up with some of the angriest and most cathartic tunes around. This list of punk songs about breaking up may help you too, if you’re hurting.

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.
