Taylor Swift just landed her first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100, and naturally it's another breakup song from the country-crossover superstar called "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together".
The song also garnered the hightest one-week digital sales total by a female artist for Taylor, with 623,000 downloads; and is the first single from her album "Red" (released Oct. 22, 2012).
The single is an upbeat, catchy tune about an on-again/off-again relationship that the singer has finally had enough of as she angrily declares, "we are never, ever, ever getting back together".
The song is the latest in a long history of angry breakup songs in modern music; some are catchy rockers sung with malicious intent, others bitter thoughts about past lovers, and one that was one of the hottest hits at the dance clubs.
So without further ado, here are our picks for the Top 10 Angry Breakup Songs* (in no particular order)...
