Top 10 Classic Rock Breakup Songs

They’re All Here For You…

Breakup is a universal – almost everyone has experienced it and almost everyone can easily relate to it. And the thing is, it’s never easy. So instead of wallowing in sadness and heartache, why don’t you grab a huge tub of ice cream and listen to these songs. Let your favorite rockstar comfort you because hey, they’ve been there too.

Once upon a time, they got their hearts broken just like you but the big difference is, they channeled that pain, longing and anger then created the following classics.

10. Skid Row – “I Remember You”

Even hard rockers long for an ex too.

9. Sammy Hagar – “I’ll Fall in Love Again”

The Red Rocker knows a thing or two about moving on.

8. Led Zeppelin – “I Can’t Quit You Baby”

Walking away from a toxic relationship even though you still have feelings for her/him? Jimmy Page and Robert Plant got you covered.

7. Motley Crue – “Don’t Go Away Mad (Just go Away)”

Because sometimes, you just tell it how it is without the need to beat around the bush.

6. The Cars – “Drive”

This is what you play when you’re feeling extra emotional – be ready with those box of tissues though.

5. Bob Dylan – “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”

Even a master songwriter like Dylan was pretty straightforward when he sang, “You just kind of wasted my precious time.”

4. Guns ‘n Roses – “Used to Love Her”

Well that escalated quickly.

3. Nazareth – “Love Hurts”

Ah, the anthem of every single heartbroken person on the planet. No breakup playlist is complete without this classic.

2. Phil Collins – “Against All Odds”

Sometimes, you want to give your relationship a second chance.

1. Fleetwood Mac – “Go Your Own Way”

The next time you feel bitter, look on the brighter side – at least it’s not as widely publicized as the breakup of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.
