Easily the most underrated rock/metal band of the 80s.

You can add:
Kiss of Death--about getting AIDS
Tooth and Nail--"Crushed all the hopes and the dreams we once had just to watch them fall"
The Hunter--"Searching for the things that I might never find....again"
Prisoner-- "chained by love!"
Heaven Sent--"but baby you're not the one!"
So Many Tears--"like so many things, we were lost forever"

Their entire catalog is almost exclusively FU b*itch songs.

Back for the Attack was an awesome album too.
"The Hunter" is an awesome song.

I saw Dokken live once in 2010. Good show.

Type o Negative - Unsuccessfully Coping with the Natural Beauty of Infidelity

Not the best but gives me the most chuckles

When I experience a loss, I don't like to listen to sad sh!t. Instead I listen to hustle music and motivational stuff. Songs that remind me that b!tches ain't **** and I need to focus on building my empire. Big Sean, Drake.. etc. If I actually am genuinely depressed, I try to focus the sadness into anger, and put on some brutal death metal or something.. and then I go work out. Sitting around sulking accomplishes nothing.

This is heavy, if you're going through a breakup, don't listen to that song.
Good song though

I don't really know about breakups, but at the moment I feel terrible, horrible and have a broken heart. At the same time I discovered Pink Floyd and the more I listen to it the better I feel.

I know I could always turn to you
Treat me so fine like you always do


^ Especially love these lines. He's talking about having a side/backup chick who will always be around for you after a breakup....

I don't know where the members of Dokken met women. That band had a lot of songs about getting wronged by women on their two biggest albums "Tooth and Nail" and "Under Lock and Key"
Easily the most underrated rock/metal band of the 80s.

Their entire catalog is almost exclusively FU b*itch songs.
Dokken's 2 biggest albums were "Tooth and Nail" (1984) and "Under Lock and Key" (1985).

The women described in Dokken songs were terrible women. These 1980s women that members of Dokken were meeting were almost ahead of their time. Most 2000s-present era women a lot like the women Dokken songs described.

I remember I first discovered Dokken in what was my junior year of high school in 1999-2000. Even then, I found a song like "Into the Fire" relatable based on some early experiences with women.

I wouldn't call what I'm linking below as the best breakup song ever. It is an intense breakup song written from a female perspective. It is Christina Aguilera's "Fighter".


In 2018, Aguilera mentioned that she wrote the song about some ex-boyfriend who turned out to be gay. I would not have suspected that from reading and listening to the lyrics.

Pretty much the entire slow deep and hard cd by Type O Negative. Except for the song where he kills the cheating hussy and guy with the pick axe. Lolol
