10 Best Angry Love Songs List and "This Means War" DVD Giveaway! - CLOSED!

Love is a Battlefield - 10 Best Angry Love Songs


Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy Form the Perfect Love Triangle in this Action Packed Comedy Available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download May 22

THIS MEANS WAR shows audiences that love is dangerous, makes people do crazy things, and brings the fight out in us. In this feature, we will countdown our ten favorite angry love songs for all the relationship warriors out there. Songs will include "Heartbreak Warfare" by John Mayer, "What About Love" by Heart and, of course, "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar.

They are the CIA’s best, trained for any situation…except one. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR. Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?

“Alison” by Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello’s 1977 song “Alison” is, as Costello himself has said, about disappointing someone. The song is often cited as one of the greatest songs of all time, and has been featured in numerous movies, including Adaptation and Get Over It, and has been covered by a wide variety of artists, including Linda Ronstadt and Brandon Boyd.

“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar’s 1983 single “Love is a Battlefield” is, to date, her highest charting single in the United States. The song won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, and the video (in which Benatar plays a teenager who is thrown out of her house and turns to prostitution) was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.

“What About Love” by Heart

The 1985 song “What About Love” by Heart served as the band’s comeback single after not having a song in the top 40 in three years. This power ballad received extensive play on MTV and broke the top 10 in the United States. Many people might remember the song from a recent Swiffer WetJet commercial.

“You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette

Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” was the lead single from her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. The song deals with the brutal aftermath of a breakup, and the identity of who the song was written about has been a point of contention since its release. The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won two Grammy Awards.

“Don’t Speak” by No Doubt

No Doubt’s 1996 single “Don’t Speak” is about the breakup of band members Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal’s seven-year relationship. The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards and received a huge amount of airplay when it was originally released. This fan favorite is often cited as one of the best songs of the last 20 years or so.

“How’s It Going to Be” by Third Eye Blind


Third Eye Blind’s “How’s It Going to Be” was released as a single in 1997. The song deals with ending a relationship and how you transition from being so close to just being acquaintances. The song reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and is a fan favorite.

“Are You Happy Now?” by Michelle Branch


Michelle Branch’s 2003 single “Are You Happy Now?” explores the greater themes of moving on and independence that are explored on her album Hotel Paper. The song broke the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 list and was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Female Rock Performance.

“Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson

Kelly’s Clarkson’s 2004 single “Since U Been Gone” is about a woman who’s happy following the demise of her troubled relationship. The song reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.  The song has been covered many times since its release, including memorable versions by people like Ted Leo, Tokyo Police Club and Kidz Bop.

“Smile” By Lily Allen

Lily Allen’s 2006 song “Smile” not only helped catapult her to stardom, but it also deals with the betrayal at the hands of her boyfriend while enjoying his anguish. The popular song charted in many countries and has made appearances on numerous “best of” lists since its release.

“Heartbreak Warfare” by John Mayer

2009’s “Heartbreak Warfare” by John Mayer is about the perils of relationships, and the inevitable “warfare” that comes with loving and losing someone. “Heartbreak Warfare” is noted for it’s innovative music video, which features “augmented reality,” allowing fans to become a part of the video.
