Sometimes, you just need to hear songs saying f*ck you. Who hasn’t reached that point at one time or another? Music is therapy and if you’re in a mood to tell someone off – without actually, you know, telling them off to their face – good songs saying f*ck you might prove helpful. Just blasting these songs on your headphones or alone in your bedroom can help you get your inner rage out.
When it comes to great f*ck you songs, they come in all music genres as anger, especially when it comes from a sense of having been wronged, is a pretty universal human emotion. Classic rock, pop, R&B and country music all have their share of great songs that are all about torching bridges with those who've done you wrong.
Cee Lo Green sets the bar pretty high with his 2010 hit song simply titled “F*ck You” (or “Forget You” – if you happen to catch it on the radio). But not all good songs that say f*ck you actually have that phrase in the title. It doesn’t make them any less powerful. Whether addressed to an ex-lover, an ex-friend, a work rival, or an entity like the government, these are great songs for the angry. What do you believe is the greatest f*ck you song of all time?
