We think any of these could be The Furies’ anthem. What about you? What are your favorite lyrics about revenge?
Blondie: “One Way or Another” Yikes! We would not want to get on Blondie’s bad side, because she is gonna get us. An awesome beat pared with super creepy lyrics: I’ll walk down the mall, stand over by the wall, where I can see it all, find out who ya call. Lead you to the supermarket, check out some specials and rat food.” Does anyone know where can we hire a taste tester???
Carrie Underwood: “Before He Cheats” Maybe not the brightest of revenge schemes (seriously, don’t leave your name at the scene of the crime!), there’s no questioning that it would feel amazing to key your name into your cheating ex’s car.
The Veronicas: “Revenge is Sweeter (Than You Ever Were)” Ah what a great song title and line! We are big fans of The Veronicas and how much fun they have in their songs. Starting off as a sad, mopey song, it quickly changes to upbeat and angry with an ominous message: “You’re on the way down I can’t wait to see you burn.”
All American Rejects: “Hope It Gives You Hell” While considerably less violent and a bit more upbeat than most revenge songs, this song is in our top five because it is the perfect highway cruising revenge song to sing along to. This lyric sums up exactly how we feel when we’re out for revenge: “When you see my face, I hope it gives you hell”
Beyoncé: “Irreplaceable” Oh Beyoncé, we aspire to be as awesome and cool as you. This song is proof that sometimes the best revenge is not caring. Icy cold lyrics, but they get the point across: “I can have another you by tomorrow, So don’t you ever for a second get to thinking you’re irreplaceable.” Jay-Z, I hope you are being nice to Beyoncé!
