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.

“Before He Cheats” — Carrie Underwood

Who knew the sweet little Oklahoma gal from American Idol had all this rage?

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”).

“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.
