List Rules Vote up your favorite metal and hard rock songs about being betrayed.

Almost everyone, at one time or another, has been betrayed. If you’re still hurting after pulling that knife out of your back, take heart: There are some outstanding metal songs about betrayal to help you process. Some of the best metal songs in general feature themes of betrayal.

Many iconic metal bands have written metal songs about being betrayed. Whether it’s a first-person account of someone who’s been deceived by a friend or a scorned lover furious about being jilted, songs like “In My Darkest Hour” by Megadeth, “Your Betrayal” by Bullet for My Valentine or “Snuff” by Slipknot, these songs will likely hit home if you’ve been betrayed.

And yes, some of these heavy metal songs about betrayal are poignant and touching, but others are angry, relentless stories of people who want revenge against those who wronged them. They are songs of pain and loss, without a doubt, but they are also empowering – if for no other reason than by listening to them, you know that you are not the only person to ever be let down and stabbed in the back by someone you trusted.

These betrayed metal songs are about lies, secrets and deception. Be sure to vote for your favorites, and add any songs that might be missing from the list.
