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.

Most beautifully written song about a complex character. This song makes him a little bit more like the Frollo from the novel who is extremely desperate.

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!

Love this song

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

Interesting theory. I doubt this was the intention, but it's plausible. - Cyri

4 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

Amazing and needs more love - flowergriffon

5 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

This is the best

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.

This deserves to be number 1.

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?

Benedict Cumberbatch may have played 3 villains that I know of (Smaug, Khan, and Dormammu), but Stiers did it perfectly first by playing both Cogsworth and Ratcliffe. You could take this song and put it on anything else where both races don't think highly of the other. *Cough* Rick vs Negan *Cough*

8 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

"I can't believe my ears! "

Yes! best song ever, and others too

9 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

MOTHER knows best

10 It's Our House Now - Mickey's House of Villains

This should be number 1. This is the best Disney Villain song ever made. - asantalo

One of the best unrated song ever made. It's a mixup of all villians songs on once

The wicked queen stromboli cheranbog the headless horseman lady tremaine the stepsisters lucifer the quenn of hearts the card soilders captain hook mr.smee the crew the crocadile si and am malefacent daiblo the goons cruella de vil horace and jasper madam mim kaa prince john madame meduase mr.snoops professer ratigan fidget ursla gaston lefou jafar aiago the hyenas cluade frollo hades pain panic the fates pete the big bad wolf the lonesome ghosts the hitchhiking ghosts all having a musical number together come on people it must be good

15 Cruella de Vil - 101 Dalmatians

This deserves #1 it's my favorite of like EVER!

It is the best song of Disney


16 The Mob Song - The Beauty and the Beast

The mob song was my favorite

17 The Gospel Truth - Hercules

That's not a villain song

Still a good song though

Hercules has 3 versions of the Gospel Truth. The version the person is referring to is "The Gospel Truth II"

The Gospel Truth I is about Zeus defeating the Titans.
The Gospel Truth II is about Hades.
The Gospel Truth III is about Zeus and Hera grieving over Baby Hercules' kidnapping.

18 Shiny - Moana

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

One of the best disney songs ever

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

Just one mistake song was good song

This song is underrated. - Scaranna
