Halestorm

February 14th is the day to show that special someone how much they really mean to you and to celebrate that crazy, wonderful thing called love. Unless of course you don't have a special someone or you are p.o'd at your significant other. If you've been burned in love or stabbed in the back with Cupid's arrow then Valentine's Day can royally bite. Take heart (yours, not the person you are angry at) and cheer up; there are many of us who have never had a good Valentine's or will at least have a bad one this time around. So settle in, grab some discounted candy for yourself and check out this list of anti-love anthems, from angry ex's to bittersweet goodbyes and everything in between.

Sound like your relationships? Well then you aren't alone either. It sounds like Lzzy knows a thing or two about drama. Seriously though, who would mess with her?! Also check out I Miss The Misery.

Adele - Someone Like You

Adele - Someone Like You

She is the queen of soulful songs and anthems of heartbreak. Anyone who has had to say goodbye to the one they didn't want to let go can easily relate to this bittersweet song.

We've all gotten sucked in by someone we knew wasn't good for us and let them bring us down in one way or another. Sometimes it leaves you saying to yourself  "what was I thinking?" Also check out their cover of Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name.

Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name

Bon Jovi - You Give Love A Bad Name

The classic song about the games that people play. Getting played for a fool isn't fun and it leaves a sour taste behind which can leave any one looking down on love.

Bullet For My Valentine - All These Things I Hate
Bullet For My Valentine - All These Things I Hate Bullet For My Valentine

Bullet For My Valentine - All These Things I Hate

Another good song of lies and betrayal. If this Valentine's Day has you literally seeing red, turn this on, crank the volume and let it all out. Also give Your Betrayal a listen.

Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love
Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love Marilyn Manson

Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love

Although the original was written in 1964 and later made popular in the 80's by Soft Cell, Manson's cover is so awesome that it had to be on this list. Let's face it, who doesn't like to flirt with danger.

Christina Perri - Jar Of Hearts

Christina Perri - Jar Of Hearts

Christina's song is perfect for healing a broken heart; and doesn't it seem that those who hurt us always try to return to the scene of the crime?

Evanescence - My Immortal

Evanescence - My Immortal

This beautiful song is all about giving back to someone and feeling the emptiness of them not giving back to you. It's hard to be the only one giving it your all.

Five Finger Death Punch - Watch You Bleed

If you're angry at your lover or just angry at love in general than raise a up a fist (maybe two) with this revenge-seeker. Also check out M.I.N.E

Slipknot -Snuff
Slipknot -Snuff Slipknot

Slipknot -Snuff

Hard to believe that  metal band would have a song to fit this list, but Snuff is a chillingly wonderful song about missing someone so much that you'd become them just to keep a piece of them. Creepy? A little? Awesome? Yes.

Stone Sour - Wicked Game
Stone Sour - Wicked Game Stone Sour

Stone Sour - Wicked Game

Chris Isaaks sang the original version of Wicked Game, but Corey Taylor has such emotion in his voice that the band's cover needed to be included. 

Taylor Swift - We Are Never Getting Back Together
Taylor Swift - We Are Never Getting Back Together Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift - We Are Never Getting Back Together

This song may sound more happy and upbeat than the others on this list but Tay makes it very clear that she's not giving into someone who's no good. If you're sending someone sailing, sing along.

The Used  - All That I've Got
The Used - All That I've Got The Used

The Used - All That I've Got

A lot of times we say we're fine and put on a good show, but on the inside we feel torn up and in shambles. Grab a tissue and give a listen, you'll feel better.

HIM - Sleepwalking Past Hope
HIM - Sleepwalking Past Hope Amber Stevens

HIM - Sleepwalking Past Hope

This song is also about pretending, only its pretending your problems away and not trying to fix things. Eventually you go so far past the point of repair that you also pass the point of hope.
