Christina has SUCH beautiful voice! Just amazing! Can't believe she wrote the whole thing! You can really hear the sadness in her voice! Bravo Christina! - TruLuv113

Christina Grimmie is so underrated and her songs are so good especially Liar Liar, you can really hear the emotion in the way she sings and the power behind the words is unreal.

I love this song the best breakup song hands down

3 Leave (Get Out) - Jojo

This song is for Claire Warnock leave ( get out) by jojo and it's. About her what has done to me and my boyfriend David Wilson and she touched and his bum and she is trying to break us up but no chance and we will never will be and we are together when she's like it or not so to late Claire Warnock and I am getting my revenue on her (ohhh) my revenue is sweet and it's on ahhh revenue is good Eliza Jane

Can't believe she was only 13 when she wrote/sang this song! Now that's true talent! Wow... I'm astonished! I miss her music... - TruLuv113

It's the best song for exs

5 Since U Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson

LOVE this revenge song! The message is about how relieved she had been since her breakup and that she finally feels free and doesn't need him anymore! - TruLuv113

6 Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood

I love this song because it end with her getting finned for destruction of personal property. A good lesson for all mentally unstable females out there. ~X8 - Xean45

This should be way above Taylor Swift; Carrie Underwood is iconic in her perfect revenge song, and her voice highlights all of the emotional scars of a tumultuous relationship, whereas Taylor Swift writes a song every time a man sees what's really in her!

Honestly songs like this make you hate all women altogether. Hopefully not all women are like this

It's so perfect

7 That's What You Get - Paramore

Absolutely EPIC! Great song, very catch, and definitely made me smile.

THIS IS THE BEST SONG EVER! You should also listen to Misery Business.

8 Candles - Hey Monday

LOVE this band! Cassadee has wrote this song RIGHT after she had won season 3 of The Voice! Glad she had won! She deserved it! SUCH talent! - TruLuv113

9 Everything Back but You - Avril Lavigne
10 Better Than Revenge - Taylor Swift


The Newcomers

? It Took Me by Surprise - Maria Mena

Epik song

The Contenders

11 I Miss the Misery - Halestorm

You can really hear how Lzzy is feeling when she's singing this song! Love how powerful her voice is!

12 Picture to Burn - Taylor Swift

This song made my heart stronger

This is my favorite song

13 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift

Like the amount of burn in this song my god. She buried Harry alive with this one!

My God, there's no accounting for taste on this site. I very much fail to see how this is a good revenge song. The story is: The guy got what he wanted, moved on to the next girl, doesn't give a flying flip, and now she's lamenting the fact that she was stupid enough to let herself get taken advantage of by a guy she knows didn't care about her from the beginning. That is the opposite of empowering. It's not even a good "breakup" song, considering it's not even about a real relationship or a breakup, just a one-night stand. Just wow.

It is a perfect revenge song. You're just gonna like it so much that you will fell in love with this song as well as with Taylor Swift

I like it so much it is the best revengeful song I've ever heard in my life. Trust me you surely gonna like it :))
