The Top 50 Anti-Love Songs For Valentines Day

Top 50 Anti-Love Songs for Valentines Day Love Sucks

Valentine Schmaletine. Amiright? It’s some strange over commercialized custom where on February 14th you show your love for someone by spending 3x as much on roses, chocolates and teddy bears yet every other day of the year a grown ass woman with a pile of stuffed animals is considered a weirdo. Well, I can’t have cats so fuck you!

Some girls will actually go crazy over not having a date on Valentines Day and it’s like sweetie, nobody loves you any other day of the year either so in the words of Gloria Gaynor – you will survive!

10. Marilyn Manson – ‘Tainted Love’

“Don’t touch me please I cannot stand the way you tease/I love you though you hurt me so/Now I’m going to pack my things and go”

This has to be one of the most covered songs of all time and honestly, they’re all great. If Manson isn’t your cup of tea, check out The Living End’s version.

9. The Clash – ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’

“This indecision’s bugging me/If you don’t want me set me free”

You know that umming and ahhing you have about leaving someone. Yeah, that’s shit.

8. GWAR – ‘Hate Love Songs’

“I hate long songs and I hate lovers/I hate everything that I can’t have so I hate you”

7. The Police – ‘Every Breath You Take’

“Every move you make/Every step you take/I’ll be watching you”

Nothing says you’re loved like a stalker right?

6. Descendents – ‘I’m The One’

“Nice guys finish last no one knows as good as me/We’re just good friends and you come to be for sympathy”

This is like the ultimate unrequited love song…or to the “nice guys” out there it’s the ‘Friend Zone’ song.

5. Joy Division – ‘ Love Will Tear Us Apart’

“When routine bites hard and ambitions are low/And resentment rides high but emotions won’t grow”

Too obvious? Maybe, but you’re a liar if you wouldn’t rate this highly during your Forever Alone sulk sessions.

4. Filter – ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’

“I’m not so glad I met you/It makes me want to go away”

3. 30 Seconds To Mars – ‘The Kill (Bury Me)’

“I am finished with you/Look in my eyes/You’re killing me, killing me/All I wanted was you”

What’s a better way to sing away your heartache but with Mr Eyecandy himself, Jared Leto?

2. Alanis Morissette – ‘You Oughta Know’

“It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced/And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?”

When it comes to female break up songs, most are a little too Taylor Swift and tear-inducing, which is fine but sometimes you just need just really want to punch someone in the dick. Alanis gets it.

and the winner is…

1. AFI – ‘I Hope You Suffer’

“No one will ever know you/Deny the last one who cares/Intoxicate with the new/Pretend I’m no longer here”

Frontman Davey Havok gets me right in the feels. I can’t tell you how many times I listened to this song in 2013 (and probably the following 3 years if I’m going to be completely honest) but it was probably enough that the YouTube royalties helped them pay for the next album.

Happy Valentine’s Day,
Love from Kim Anderson

love sucks
