Hate is a powerful emotion, and many musicians have turned their experiences into songs for their enemies. This list features the best songs about enemies, ranked by your votes. Some of the greatest enemy songs are about a group of haters, but other good enemy songs are written with one specific person in mind.

Bob Dylan told off his former friend turned nemesis with his scathing hit, “Positively 4th Street.” This track contains the lyrics, “Yes, I wish that for just one time/You could stand inside my shoes/You’d know what a drag it is/To see you.” Ouch! Kanye West addressed his haters with “Power” and Dawes put old feuds behind them on “Things Happen.”

In the early-1990s, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E went from N.W.A. collaborators to bitter rivals. Music fans heard this feud play out in song with Dre's “F*ck Wit Dre Day” and Eazy's response track, “Real Muthaphuckkin G's.” Other good songs about enemies, nemeses, and foes on this list include “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” and “Killing in the Name.”
