Songs about Cutting

It may be one of the most common stereotypes in music culture, but in fact self-cutting is a fad that got blown way out of proportion in emo culture. Many emos are healthy, well-adjusted people with smooth, un-scarred limbs. Just thought we'd clear it out.

But the imagery of blades slashing away, be it at flesh or a good pot roast, makes a keen metaphor for all sorts of things. It can refer to cutting emotions, sharp intellects, abrasive environments, or the pain of lost love feeling as a slash across the heart. So sharpen up your machetes and get ready to hack through this song list - it'll go great with carving the Thanksgiving turkey, if nothing else.
