Tell me you favorite bitter, angry songs.

I'm going through a terrible breakup right now. Instead of asking for advice I just want to know your favorite bitter, angry, and break-up-y songs. I'm thinking more in terms of lyrics than sound (I don't like screamy music.) I've been listening to Damien Rice's song Cheers Darlin' over and over, I find it to be a perfectly bitter and beautiful piece. Also a lot of Bright Eyes. But I really want music with that sad angry bitterness that most songs don't seem to express. Youtube or other links would be awesome.
Even bitter pieces of poetry would be of interest. I want others' experiences of that acidic biting type of hurt.
