There's a fine line between love and hate, but the best songs about hate usually blur that line. Everyone knows that the greatest songs about hate are usually written post-break up, when the musician's heart is still raw and full of feels. But ex-lovers aren't the only thing on these bands' minds - Radiohead and Joan Jett have written songs about self-loathing, while the Violent Femmes have sung about their hatred for television. Tupac Shakur even raps about hating the world.

Of all the best hate songs out there, CeeLo Green's "F--k You," tops our list. It's the most scathing hate song out there, bedsides Bob Dylan's "Positively 4th Street." Radiohead's "Creep" and Nirvana's "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die" deal with self-hatred. Say Anything's "Hate Everyone," is about Max Bemis's early onset disdain for the human race. The Avett Brothers, however, really turn the hate song genre around with their "Ballad of Love and Hate." They sing about the different perspectives of a woman, (Love) and her boyfriend, (Hate), and how they treat each other in a relationship.
