Turns out to listening to sad music after a breakup might actually make you more depressed. Sorry every single romantic comedy ever written… Instead of being cathartic, listening to sad music actually shifts our focus to the negative emotions we’re feeling.

In light of this news, we've compiled a list of artists to avoid after a breakup. 

1. AdeleCrying

Under no circumstances should you listen to Adele after a breakup. Yes, it is tempting, but Adele will make you mourn the relationship more than you’ve ever mourned anything in your life.

2. Any Emo Music WhatsoeverCrying

The Honorary Title, Something Corporate, Jimmy Eat World, Kevin Devine, Saves the Day, Straylight Run...nope, sorry. Cannot do.

3. Lana Del Rey Crying

Lana’s melancholic music has the capacity to turn the happiest person into a cynical hater. Now is definitely not the time to listen to her.

4. Amy Winehouse: Back to Black Crying

Some of Amy Winehouse is okay, but avoid Back to Black before your soul ends up in a dark place.

5. Björk

She’s more than just her crazy antics—she’s real, deep, and depressing as all hell.

6. Bon Iver Crying

Stop—just stop. You won’t make it through.

7. Death Cab for CutieCrying

I know what you’re thinking—maybe regressing to a 14 year-old state might help with this breakup. It won’t. Avoid Death Cab at all costs.
