"The End of Heartache" is a metalcore song as well as the title track and second single from Killswitch Engage's third studio album The End of Heartache. The song also appeared as the theme song for the 2004 zombie action film Resident Evil: Apocalypse.
The song became the band's breakthrough single, peaking at no. 31 on the Mainstream Rock Chart.
Two videos were produced for the song. The video edit of the song features mostly clean singing from vocalist Howard Jones with a few background screams, much like the video for "My Curse".
The first video shows the band performing the song inter-cut with footage from Resident Evil: Apocalypse along with close-up shots of the band playing.
The second video cuts out the Resident Evil: Apocalypse footage and cuts between shots of the band performing the song.
