List RulesSongs with "betrayed" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about betrayal as a subject.

Being stabbed in the back by someone you love isn't pleasant, but it sure makes for a good song. This is a ranked list of all songs about betrayal, as voted on by music fans like you.  Some of the songs included below may have the words "betray" or "betrayal" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about being betrayed as a subject or theme. The music below addresses two-timers, double-crosser and backstabbers galore, so if you've been wrong by someone play some of these songs and make yourself feel better. Examples of songs below include "Of Mice and Men" by Megadeth and "Thank You" by Simple Plan. 

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the backstabbing songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top betrayal songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
