I'm totally not 'with it' anymore, but the more mainstreamy things I can think of are The Gossip, which might be good for such an occasion. Beth Ditto is kinda all empowering all the time. Also, Karen O has a similar vibe.
Early Pretty Girls Make Graves always made me feel grrrrrrrish. Oh, and I think 'Hinterland' by Shannon Wright is one of the most simple yet brilliant songs I have ever heard.
"The era of procrastination, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences."
At work we haveto listen to a people friendly radio station but that carry underwood country song about a cheating boyfriend and destroying his truck is good stuff. I want to do that "carve my name into his leatehr seats" take that!

Here's a couple... Right Now - Korn Did My Time - Korn Wait and Bleen - Slipknot Spit it Out - Slipknot Happy - Mudvayne Break You - Lamb of God I'm Alive - Disturbed You Oughta Know - Alanis Morrisette Walk - Pantera We Will Rise - Arch Enemy
I'm a big Joan Jett gal when the going gets rough. Older Lush is also great, Kristin Hersch era Throwing Muses, maybe? I really try to stay away from any songs that are break-up related, even if they've got a big f-you vibe. Sonic Youth, Archers of Loaf, Gang of Four, and The Stooges are all top choices.
Goalsies: 160 - new handbag 150 - new tattoo, botanical print. 140 - new pants. Nice ones not just cheapies from Target. 130 - Two or three new outfits including shoes. Mmmm...shoes...
This is so funny....I actually just did this....I made two playlists. One is called the heartbreak play list and the other is called the F you playlist....I thought I was a wierdo....o.k. let me go look....I didn't save it! Ok. Here are songs I know I had Beck-F***king with my head,the following are all Ani Difranco-Angry Anymore, Untouchable Face, Gravel, Back Around, Face up and Sing, Make Me Stay, Knuckle Down, Coming up (This is actually more political, but it makes me feel empowered), I'm no heroine (it just always makes me feel better), Evolve, Dilate......o.k. that is a list of my favorite artist....some of it's still kinda sappy, I guess I'm just a sappy sort of person. Hope this helps. Sorry for your friend...

Risk! Risk anything!...Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
Maybe 'Bruise Violet' Babes in Toyland or 'Don't Need You' by Bikini Kill. I think so L7 would be good, too. Also 'Madman' by the Hives. Not too many people like them because they're 'big' but I'm satisfied with anything coming from a Scandinavian country. I had some more but I forgot them. Darn.
