Best Disney Villain Songs


The Top Ten

1 Hellfire - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Such an intense and beautifully written song!

It is the best villain song ever! Where else would you get to see a song about lust and HELL in a Disney movie? Frollo gives me the creeps. I think that's why he's my favorite Disney villain...

The other disney songs sound like they're out of a musical, but this is straight forward OPERA level! Amazing choir and amazing lyrics. Simply the best.

The best disney villain song ever! Very intense and beautiful song, clearly a masterpiece.

2 Be Prepared - Lion King

A badass song for a badass villain - Ajkloth

I know the whole song by heart! Also, you guys have to listen to both the Japanese and the nightcore version too! I love this song!

I love this song! When the live action Lion King comes out, I will be singing this song loud! Best Disney Villain song with the best Disney villain! EVERYONE! PUT THIS AT NUMBER ONE! I REPEAT! PUT THIS AT NUMBER ONE!

Why isn't this number 1?!?

3 Poor Unfortunate Souls - The Little Mermaid

I love this song (not only because of my Little Mermaid bias) because of how Ursula gets her point across. It just shows her true character in a song that gives away how manipulative and ambitious she is.

AWESOME! How is this not higher, at least at 2

In my opinion, the best ones are My Lullaby, Snuff out the light and Evil like me, but they're not on the list, so this one gets my vote.

Ursula is Satan, the eels are demons, Triton is God and Ariel is one of God's children being fought over. - Patty_C

4 Friends on the Other Side - The Princess and the Frog

Dr. Facilier is one of those villains where you see him and go holy crap this is gonna be a good movie. For every bad moment in the movie, Facilier gave us a great one. And Friends On The Other Side is one of those moments.

Surprising good song. Who knew Keith David was secretly a great singer.

Friends on the other side should be number one. It is so good I know every word

Fantastic song.

5 Mother Knows Best - Tangled

Best Song Ever! I think it is probably one of my most favourite disney song along with the other Tangled songs

My fave song of the movie. Donna Murphy can really sing! Not to mention, the reprise gives me the chills. "If he's lying, don't come crying! "

Best song of the movie. Very good villain song, I'm happily surprised it's in top 5. - irismatidia

Most powerful!

6 Gaston - Beauty and the Beast

The reprise when they're so happy about doing underhanded, cheap tricks to get their own selfish goals is so funny. They've got a lot of enthusiasm! - Knucklewood

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs, every morning to help me get large. Now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs, so I'm roughly the size of a barge!

This is one of those few times you actually get to use this different type of language.

No one screams like Gaston,
No one preens like Gaston,
No one falls to their death pinwheeling like Gaston

7 Savages - Pocahontas

I don't watch Pocahontas a whole lot but out of any songs of disney classic movies is this one and Friends On the Other Side.

Pretty G song, what's up with it being so low lads?

8 Mother Knows Best (Reprise) - Tangled

Powerful singing, and every single line has meaning. Comparing this reprise with the original just makes this even more scary and intense. It shows how Gothel has gone from plain protective to absolutely controlling.

Donna Murphy'so voice is so powerful. This is what makes the reprise even more amazing

9 Oogie Boogie's Song - The Nightmare Before Christmas

This is the best villain song ever! This and Friends on the other side. BEST BEST BEST

This song is underrated like the movie. - McKing1003

YOU'RE JOKINg - nickdoritosyum

15 Shiny - Moana

Shiny is my life. It's catchy and it is hilarious. YOU WILL DIE DIE DIE

This song is fantastic. Jemaine Clement is a great vocalist and this song feels like a tribute to David Bowie.

Davy Jones's theme is Hans Zimmer at his finest. It has a brilliant melody played in a vulnerable way on a music box and then powerfully on an organ, appropriate for Davy Jones.
