11 Revenge Songs That Are Just as Good as Beyoncé’s “Sorry” (VIDEOS)
But long before “Becky with the good hair” became part of the cultural lexicon, there were many other songs inspired by heartbreak and betrayal that had us singing at the top of our lungs.
Scroll down below for 11 of the best, most pissed off revenge tunes in recent history.
“Before He Cheats” — Carrie Underwood
Who knew the sweet little Oklahoma gal from American Idol had all this rage?
“What Goes Around... Comes Around” — Justin Timberlake
“Cry Me a River” may have gotten more attention, but this Scarlett Johansson-featuring video really shows how pissed off he was.
“You’re So Vain” — Carly Simon
You can’t make this list without one of the all-time greats! Now, if Carly would stop going back and forth about who the song is about...
“Don’t” — Ed Sheeran
Sweet ginger-haired Ed went in hard on his unnamed ex — who many believe to be Ellie Goulding.
“You Oughta Know” — Alanis Morissette
“Are you thinking of me when you f—k her?” might be one of the most brazen lines in the history of pop music. Touché, Alanis. And watch out Joey Gladstone!
“Since U Been Gone” — Kelly Clarkson
Try not to fist pump to this song, just one of many girl power jams from Kelly (shout out to “Behind These Hazel Eyes”).
“Irreplaceable” — Beyoncé
Mrs. Carter is an old pro at this game — she’s been singing about d-bags since 2006.
“All Too Well” — Taylor Swift
There are too many songs to choose from, so we’ll just go with the one inspired by our fave TSwift ex, Jake Gyllenhaal.
“F—k You” — Lily Allen
Straight to the point, Lily, and we love you for it. Who cares if it was (allegedly) about President George W. Bush.
“I Don’t F—k With You” — Big Sean
Guys get pissed, too! Pretty sure Big Sean’s ex Naya Rivera was feeling this burn for months after.
“Leave (Get Out)” — JoJo
Proving you’re never too young to deal with heartbreak, 13-year-old JoJo took her revenge while leaning casually against the lockers.
