4 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

5 Since U Been Gone - Kelly Clarkson

6 Jar of Hearts - Christina Perri

Christina's voice is just beautiful... Hauntingly beautiful actually! Her voice SERIOUSLY gives me GOOSEBUMPS! The song is SO dark and sad! Such a good revenge song! - TruLuv113

Great song and she has such a beautiful voice! I def love this song!

The best song ever sooo good

It's the best song for exs

7 I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift

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 :))

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

8 Smile - Lily Allen

One of my favorites!

9 Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood

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

Simply... the ultimate revenge song... and the music video is even better :D

10 That's What You Get - Paramore

The Contenders

11 Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence

I thought I was gonna have to add this! #13? Really?! Let's get it to #1! Such an amazing song, voice, piano technique, piano, fiddles, drums, I could go on! - The_Violist

12 Wide Awake - Katy Perry

I really love this song!

13 Slow Down - Selena Gomez
14 So What - Pink

15 I Miss the Misery - Halestorm

17 Your Friend Is Better Than You Ever Were - Dolores Delano

19 You Oughta Know - Alanis Morissette

Please. If this song didn't cut to the soul of every lack of commitment laden male in Western society, I don't know what did, myself included... I think Ms. Morissette spoke for a lot women when this song hit the airwaves. Ouch. This was an eye opener. - Ned964
