Over the years, countless songs have been written about lying. For that reason, we've ranked the best songs about lying and liars. Some of the best songs about lying are from the perspective of the liar, while other tunes are from the perspective of the person being lied to. Many of these songs about lying are about a two-timing, cheating fool in a relationship.

Destiny's Child took a close look at men who are “acting kind of shady” with their lying hit, “Say My Name.” Another woman who doesn't take kindly to being lied to is Carrie Underwood. I know I wouldn't lie to her after hearing her song, “Before He Cheats.” Other great songs found on this list of the top songs about lying include “Policy of Truth” by Depeche Mode and “I Could Have Lied” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Some of the best lying songs come from the hard rock and metal genres. Korn skewered the untruthful with their track, “Lies,” and Rollins Band celebrated being a good liar with their song, “Liar.”

What is your favorite song to listen to after you've been lied to? Let us know in the comments section and add any we may have missed.
