82. The All-American Rejects: Gives You Hell

Found on: When the World Comes Down (2008)
Picked by: PA

One thing that will hopefully never go out of style is the conflicted kiss-off. You know the song: the dumpee tries to pretend he's over it, but his anger betrays the fact that he still cares a little too much. This pop/emo/stadium shouter is another fine addition to the pantheon: "Truth be told I miss you," Tyson Ritter admits before contradicting himself. "Truth be told I'm lyin'" Extra points for admitting in the lyrics that the song was written for the express purpose of pissing off its subject.
