"Spine Breaker" is a song by BTS. It was released on February 12, 2014 and appears as the eighth track from their second mini album Skool Luv Affair and the tenth track from their first repackage album Skool Luv Affair Special Addition.

The instrumental version of the song was released exclusively physically on May 14, 2014 and appears as the seventeenth track from their first repackage album Skool Luv Affair Special Addition


'Spine Breaker' is a dark hip-hop song reminiscent of the ‘Gangsta Shit’ of 2000s Western American hip-hop. Singer Song Chang-sik's "Why Are You Calling Me" was tastefully sampled. The topic was the padding craze among middle and high school students. The title ‘Spine Breaker’ was given to indicate that expensive padding is taking away the spine of parents. BTS stands in the middle and represents the feelings of students and parents, sometimes witty and sometimes bluntly. The lyrics feel like they are looking into the inner thoughts of a teenager. This song stands out with vocalist V's attractive low-pitched voice and Rap Monster's flow reminiscent of Snoop Dogg.
