Live Ledge #228: Anti Love Songs

It's become a bit of a Live Ledge tradition to "celebrate" Valentine's Day with songs that are quite the opposite of what you'll hear in a greeting card commercial. These are bitter songs filled with hate, despair, and quite often don't feature exactly the most politically correct lyrics.
They're great tracks, though, and it's always fun to spend two hours with "anti-love songs" such as these. Grab this from the usual sources, or...
