Best Villain Songs

Any song from any villain, whether in film, TV, video games or the theatre, Put it here!

The Top Ten

1 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The only villain song that mourns the evil inside of his character, instead of celebrating it

While Be Prepared is great too, this one gotta be my favourite villain song of all time. It lets us look inside the soul of a villain, not just hear him singing about his plans. Quite dark and serious for Disney, it almost makes me feel sorry for this ass Frollo. Also, Tony Jay's performance is brilliant.

Be mine or you will BURN!

My favorite because Frollo is singing about the gypsy girl Esmerelda and how he wants to destroy her if she isn't his and his alone. - SuperheroSith

2 Be Prepared - The Lion King


Scar is FAR better than Frollo.
Be Prepared is the best song from the movie, while Hellfire is beaten up by Bells of Notre Dame.

3 In the Dark of the Night - Anastasia

I love this song so much! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

If you think hellfire is good, just wait till you here this song. trust me you will love this

4 Poor Unfortunate Souls - The Little Mermaid

Best Disney Villain song for us to sing. It’s so good that Hellfire and Be Prepared just don’t feel like they’re scary or close to be perfect. This one is perfect. Ursula is amazing. - asantalo

5 Cell Block Tango (He Had It Comin') - Chicago

Velma Kelly, Roxy Hart and their corrupt lawyer Billy Flynn are FAR better than Scar.

6 I Go Looney - Batman the Killing Joke

JOKER GOES LOONEY! As a light bulb batter bug.


Go Hamill!

7 Friends On the Other Side - The Princess and the Frog

This one was pretty creepy and inspiring.

8 Secret of Survival - Mr Toad's Wild Ride
9 It's Our House Now - Mickey's House of Villains

This has to be the best Disney Villain song in the world. You thought Be Prepared, or Hellfire are perfect? Well you are all wrong! I want you to go check this song out and come back and tell me what do you all think! - asantalo

Best Disney villain song ever! Better than any other songs from Disney. I love seeing all villains together

10 Toxic Love - FernGully: The Last Rainforest

Tim Curry's sensuous voice makes this song inTOXICating (no pun intended)!

The Contenders

11 Oogie Boogie's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas
12 My Lullaby - The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride
13 A Night on Bald Mountain - Fantasia

Ton times better than Be Prepared. Chernabog is scary! I know there’s no lyrics, not saying much, because this song is a million times more interesting than Be Prepared. - asantalo

14 Grim Grinning Ghosts - Disney's the Haunted Mansion Ride

Remember that segment from that Disneyland Disney-Sing-Alongs on VHS where it only has a few Disney Villains in a scene and it takes place at the Hanted Mansion? Cause that version of the song is the best one than the actual ride itself (it’s too fast). - asantalo

15 Cruella de Vil - 101 Dalmatians
16 Dentist - Little Shop of Horrors
17 Sweet Transvestite - The Rocky Horror Picture Show
18 Prince Ali Reprise - Aladdin
19 You Wouldn’t Want to Mess with Me - The Little Mermaid

This is basically from the T.V. series of The Little Mermaid. This is the song Ursula sang. There’s 2 versions in one episode. It’s awesome. Check it out - asantalo

20 We are Number One - Robbie Rotten

It should be Number One!

LOOK AT THIS NET - TannerLewisReadyDanger

21 Savages - Pocahontas
22 Mother Knows Best - Tangled
23 A Little Priest - Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
24 This Day Aria - My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
25 Double Trouble - Pokémon
26 You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two - Oliver!
27 Intelligence - Help! I'm a Fish

Joe may abuse his powers, but he has valid points, much like Scar.
And the song is ' addictive.
So dramatic in the verses, way more epic and bombastic than the actual movie, the chorus is pretty funky.
And yeah, Alan Rickman's voice acting on this one is amazing. - Martin_Canine

28 A Freak Like Me Needs Company - Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark
29 One-Winged Angel - Final Fantasy VII
30 Still Alive - Portal

The contrast between the song's pleasant tone and the lyrics are the perfect match for GLaDOS' conflicting personality.

31 Worst Pies In London - Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
32 Be Back Soon - Oliver!

Seems to be Fagin's motto to his young pickpockets.

33 Under Our Spell - Rainbow Rocks My Little Pony

Um, hello! SIRENS! This whole song is only about people falling for their songs.DUH! - ilar9118

34 The World's Greatest Criminal Mind - The Great Mouse Detective

Ratigan is the man. I just love how much villainous fun he has in this song. It's a whole lot of fun, and is one of the most memorable scenes from the film. - beasthound

35 Big and Loud - Cats Don't Dance
36 Razzle Dazzle - Chicago
37 Non Je Ne Regrette Rien - Madagascar 3
38 Shiver Me Timbers - Muppet Treasure Island
39 Slipping - Dr Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog
40 Playing With the Big Boys Now - The Prince of Egypt
41 Epiphany - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
42 Mean Green Mother from Outer Space - The Little Shop of Horrors
43 Open Up Your Eyes (My Little Pony the Movie)

Tempest was an allusion to Darth Vader. This song should be higher because it not only demonstrated how Tempest felt superior to the other ponies while on Storm King's side, but it also reveals the reason she joined him in the first place as well as her origin story. Tempest saw the truth of "friendship" right then and there. It broke my heart when I saw her origin story. I don't blame her "friends" though. An adult should've been watching them. Just goes to show how irresponsible their parents clearly were.

44 You're a Mean One, Mr Grinch - How the Grinch Stole Christmas
45 Pretty Women - Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
46 The Mob Song - Beauty and the Beast
47 Les Poissons - The Little Mermaid
48 Yodel Adle Eedle Idle Oo - Home On the Range
49 No More Mr. Nice Guy - The Swan Princess
50 Evilmainya - Freddy As F.r.o.7.

Good song but why did they put in tuskin raiders and the k in there - natemamate
