Most men abide by the "man code".  And while there is much debate about specific sections of the code due to regional differences or varied social statuses, there are some man code rules that simply cannot be broken. No matter what.

One of these universal man rules is that you are to never to date, or even think about dating a friend's girlfriend. This goes for the present time, and any time in the future. This rule extends until death and there is no statute of limitations. All men know this rule as it's programmed into the genetic code that makes us men. Any man who breaks this rule does so willingly, so forgiveness is not required.

With this man rule in mind I've crafted a playlist of songs about men who've been perpetrators or victims of this horrible man code violation. In some cases these songs are true stories, which is  really hard for me to believe. Not only would a man break the code, but write a song about it!

I'm looking at you Eric Clapton.
