List Rules Songs with cheating in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about cheating as a subject.

Infidelity is a temptation that will never go away, which is why so many musical artists have written songs about cheating or being cheated on. This is a ranked list of all songs about cheating, as voted on by music fans like you. These songs tell stories of adultery from both sides of the coin, and involve both men and women cheating on their wives and husbands. Some of the songs included below may have the words "cheats" or "cheating" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about cheating as a subject or theme.

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 cheating 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 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.
