The best break-up song, ever.

Earlier today Dave at The Rawking Refuses to Stop posted his top 10 best break-up albums. My answer back? This song.

Eve 6 - Anytime
When Eve 6 broke up in 2004 (no pun intended) I was devastated; "Inside Out" was possibly my favorite song of all time until I was 13 or 14. I didn't include Eve 6 in the "Celebrating 19 years of bad music" post because I never stopped loving Eve 6. Never.
"Anytime" is THE perfect break-up song because Max Collins, Eve 6's lead singer, doesn't deal with breaking-up by crying in his room, walking city streets in the middle of the night, or thinking about the girl he broke up with while he's making out with some other chick (all break-up cliches of pop music).
No, he gets in his car, blasts the radio, and leaves town - as in, he basically just rocks hard and kicks ass. Which is really how it should be. Does he try and forget her? Sure. Does it work? No. Would he take her back? Probably.

    Dude you said it all man! He sings about how we really feel about the dirty bitches. The burn on the arm says how easy it is to forget about the emotional pain with just alittle physical to drown it out.
