Great Romances: An Emo & Punk Valentine's Day Playlist

Emo and punk bands are noted for decidedly "sad" lyricism, and many love songs are written in the vein of a scorned lover. So with Valentine's Day coming up this Friday, we've tried our best to scrounge up a mix of great emo and pop-punk songs that are a fitting soundtrack for February 14. 

The requisite Weezer and Get Up Kids and Taking Back Sunday songs are present, of course, but we also dug a little deeper to include romantic tunes from Braid, Jawbreaker, the Ergs and more. Fans of modern pop-punk will be happy to see Paramore, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, The Wonder Years and more in there as well. 

Check out the playlist below and let us know in the comments if we missed any good ones.
