Even talented rockstars and famous pop stars have suffered at the hands of haters and bullies. Pearl Jam wrote "Jeremy," about a kid who gets picked on at school, and eventually commits suicide because of it. Their impactful music video was based on a story that Eddie Vedder read in the newspaper about a boy who shot himself in front of his classmates. Many female artists, like Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera, advocate for the victims in their bullying songs. Swift's "Mean" details how she felt after Kanye West cut off her acceptance speech at the Grammy's, Lady Gaga shakes off the haters with "Born This Way," and Christina Aguilera reminds us all to keep fighting, no matter what, with "Fighter" and "Beautiful.

Other favorite songs about bullies take the opposite side, like Tim McGraw on "One of These Days" when he sings about how he used to pick on the other kids as a child, because he hadn't yet learned to love himself.
