There are songs that you love to hate, but below you will find hate songs that you will just plain love. Here's our list of the best songs about hate, ranked by your votes.  Many hate songs are about hating other people, but several of the top hate songs are about self hatred. It goes without saying that several hate songs on this list are about the end of a relationship.

Bob Dylan doesn't specifically reference hate in his lyrics on “Positively 4th Street,” but the song is a scathing message to those who did him wrong. Eminem shared his hatred on his song, “Puke,” and Erasure contradicted themselves on “Love To Hate You.” Do you think Green Day has some anger in them? Take a listen to their track “F.O.D,” AKA F*ck Off and Die.

Several musicians directed their hate at themselves. Trent Reznor expressed self hatred on “Closer” and “Only” among other Nine Inch Nails songs and Kurt Cobain wrote the Nirvana deep cut, “I Hate Myself and I Want to Die.” Maybe the best self-hate song is “Creep” by Radiohead.

Which song do you like to listen to when you want to feel the hate? Show your favorite hate song some love by voting it to the top of this list.
