The Best Revenge Songs Of All Time

Because they deserve it and that should be set to music…

Almost two weeks ago, TMZ reported that Calvin Harris has written a thinly veiled accusation (in the form of a song) that Taylor Swift cheated on him. The lyrics are purported to have been written from the perspective of the person with whom Taylor cheated—presumed to be Tom Hiddleston—and they include such gems as, “I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend / Being attentive, continue to pretend…” and “You’ve hidden my name in your phone so you can call me to tell me you’ve been going through hell / Left him alone and you booked in a hotel.” Drama! TMZ also pointed out that one of the song’s lyrics includes the words “low key,” which it insists are meant to stand for “Loki,” the name of Hiddleston’s Marvel character. Anyone else feel as though they’ve been suddenly and unceremoniously transported back to the ninth grade? Who knows if any of this is true—TMZ is now saying that its “Taylor sources” claim Harris wrote the song before he and Swift started to drift, but we will forever listen to Harris’ new song (once it’s released) with this dramatic context in mind. After all, revenge songs are the best, especially when you yourself are going through a breakup. Here, eight of the best revenge songs of all time.
