[list] 10 Songs for Victory and Defeat in the 2012 Presidential Election

Use these songs to revel in victory/wallow in defeat once this crap is over with.

- Nov 6, 2012

No matter if you're American, Canadian, or part of our inexplicably large Chechnyan demographic, you're probably aware that there's an American presidential election going on. And if you or someone you know has an emotional horse in that race, you should accept that there's a chance that the other guy's name will be called. Or maybe not! Luckily, whether your guy wins or loses, we've put together a playlist of songs for each scenario that you can blast instead of watching idiot pundits on CNN rub salt in your wounds/reaffirm your faith in democracy. The selections were made based on lyrical content, general emotional drive, as well as whatever best articulates this incredible anxiety I'm feeling right now.
