There’s nothing beautiful about being betrayed by someone you love but how about a song you can relate to? Wouldn’t it feel a tad better to know that there are others who have been down that path or even worse paths?
Another exciting thing about this list, asides from it being relatable, is the fact that you would get strength and encouragement. This encouragement could come in the form of calming you down and making you stronger or making you vengeful.
None of these may be a conventional way of healing but you’re not here seeking for the ordinary, are you?
Whatever type of feeling you want, these 40 best f*ck you songs have got you covered. But please remember, when you slash the tires of their cars, it wasn’t LoveOhLust that encouraged that, you felt inspired by the song, rather.
1. Puke – Eminem
Eminem is the king of making music just the way he feels and this song is no different. ‘There I go, thinking of you again’ Just after a bout of puking, says a lot about how much you don’t even like the idea of remembering the betrayer (ex-lover).
For those times that you know you don’t want to mince words and you also want to hurt feelings, Eminem’s ‘Puke’ comes to the rescue.
You don’t know how sick you make me
You make me fucking sick to my stomach
Every time I think of you, I puke
You must just not kno-o-o-o-o-ow
You may not think you do, but you do
Every time I think of you, I puke…
2. F*ck What I Said (I Don’t Want You Back) – Eamon
When you just want to take back every lovely thing you did and said for an ex-lover. This song emanated from a very sad and broken place and from the complete lyrics, you’d know that the singer has been through a lot and just doesn’t care anymore.
F*ck what I said
It don’t mean sh*t now
F*ck the presents
Might as well throw ‘em out
F*ck all those kisses, they don’t mean jack
F*ck you, you h*e, I don’t want you back…
3. So What – Pink
You know when you know you’re done and nothing can change your mind. Those moments you really want them to know nothing about them or what you shared matters anymore. You’d also want the person to know that you are doing well for yourself and having a lot of fun while at it. Well, Pink has the anthem for this moment and it’s this song.
I guess I just lost my husband
I don’t know where he went
So I’m gonna drink my money
I’m not gonna pay his rent (nope)
I got a brand new attitude
And I’m gonna wear it tonight…
4. Never Again – Kelly Clarkson
When you want to wish the ex-lover all the terrible things possible that you could possibly think of. Kelly wishes all sorts on her ex and it also spilled to his new lover.
The bottom line is, they did you dirty, they don’t deserve any good. Wish a thousand plagues upon them while telling them ‘f*ck you’.
I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green
I hope when you’re in bed with her, you think of me
I would never wish bad things, but I don’t wish you well
Could you tell by the flames that burned your words?…
5. I Don’t Miss You at All – Selena Gomez
This song is best for when your ex may believe that you haven’t moved past the breakup. In order to prove that you’re not hung up, sometimes you need to rudely tell ‘em off.
No thoughts, no missing, in fact, ‘Who are you again?’
It doesn’t hurt when I think of you
And all the things we’ll never get to do
I don’t dream at night about the way we were
I tore out the pictures
Crossed out all the words…
6. I Don’t F*ck With You – Big Sean Ft E -40
Whatever Big Sean went through that inspired this music must have been really crazy. There are very few cold songs that scream ‘F*CK YOU!’ like this one. If you don’t want to hold on to any emotions and don’t care about what the person will feel, listen to this and maybe send it to the heartbreaker.
I heard you gotta new man, I see you takin’ a pic (woah)
Then you post it up, thinking that its making me sick
Brr, brr, I see you calling I be making it quick
I’ma answer that sh-like, “I don’t f-with you”…
7. Happier Than Ever – Billie Eilish
When you want to subtly tell your ex heartbreaking lover to go f*ck himself/herself. The song started and progressed through an almost calm melody that would make it seem like it isn’t angry enough but just hold on and listen from the 3 rd minute in.
You ruined everything good
Always said you were misunderstood
Made all my moments your own
Just f*cking leave me alone…
8. Thank You, Next – Ariana Grande
We’ve been through this one too many times, no? Even if it’s the first time, there’s no need to cry over spilled milk or in this case a dead relationship.
What to do? On to the next! There’s no time to waste.
I’ve got so much love (love)
Got so much patience (patience)
I’ve learned from the pain (pain)
I turned out amazing (turned out amazing)
I’ve loved and I’ve lost (yeah, yeah)
But that’s not what I see (yeah, yeah)
‘Cause look what I’ve found (yeah yeah)
Ain’t no need for searching
And for that, I’ll say
Thank you, next (thank you, next)
Thank you, next (thank you, next)
Thank you, next…
9. Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood
When you mix heartbreak, hatred, and vengeance in one, you’d get the message of this song. So they broke your heart? Oh! Did he cheat? So he thinks he can go scot-free? Maybe you should show him what you can do and destroy some things. (You didn’t get this advice from us, Carrie Underwood did the advising.)
I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up-four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats…
10. IDGAF – Dua Lipa
As the title suggests, this song is best for when you need to send a message of ‘I don’t give a f*ck’ across. When you need to make it explicit that you have moved on and you do not care about anything the ex-lover wants to say.
You’re done, you’ve moved on, you do not need any of their sorry excuses or apologies.
You say you’re sorry
But it’s too late now
So save it, get gone, shut up
(Too late now)
‘Cause if you think I care about you now
Well, boy, I don’t give a f*ck…
11. F*ck You- Cee Lo Green
How painful is it to see your ex move on quickly with someone else who has what you ‘lack’? This song narrates an ordeal of a girl moving on to another guy because the singer didn’t have money to ‘provide’ for her.
Now, you see them drive around town and all you can do is wish them a very happy ‘f*ck you’.
I see you driving ‘round town with the girl I love
And I’m like ‘F*ck you’ (ooh, ooh, ooh)
I guess the change in my pocket wasn’t enough
I’m like, ‘F*ck you and f*ck her, too’
Said, ‘If I was richer, I’d still be with ya’
Ha, now ain’t that some shit?
(Ain’t that some shit)
And although there’s pain in my chest
I still wish you the best
With a ‘F*ck you’ (ooh, ooh, ooh)…
12. Best Thing I Never Had – Beyonce
This song is more of a gratitude song because ‘yessssss! You dodged a bullet’ innit?
It must have hurt terribly when the relationship ended but you later realize that it all turned out for your own good.
Now, you tell your ex who broke your heart ‘thank you’ with a sprinkle of ‘Now, go f*ck your miserable self”.
I wanted you bad
I’m so through with that
‘Cause honestly, you turned out to be the (best thing I never had)
You turned out to be the (best thing I never had)
And I’m gon’ always be the (best thing you never had)
Oh, yeah, I bet it sucks to be you right now…
13. We Are Never Getting Back Together – Taylor Swift
Queen of Heartbreak songs has this one that is almost an anthem to tell us to scream this whenever some sneaky heartbreaking ex wants a rematch. Uhmmmmm ‘No way Jose!’
You’re over it, you’re not on the same level anymore, and most importantly, you’re never ever ever, getting back together.
I used to think that we were forever ever
And I used to say, ‘Never say never…’
Uggg… so he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you.”
And I’m like… “I just… I mean this is exhausting, you know, like
We are never getting back together. Like, ever”
14. Cry Me a River – Justin Timberlake
This song screams ‘IDGAF’ in a very loving tone and language, you may think it’s a beautiful love song. Well. It is beautiful, all right!
The beautiful thing is that you don’t care so much about what your ex has to say. You don’t even care if they’re bawling their eyes out trying to make amends. The damage they did which led to the breakup was too much. There’s just no reconsideration.
You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me all alone?
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me on the phone
Girl I refuse
You must have me confused with some other guy
The bridges were burned
Now it’s your turn to cry
Cry me a river…
15. Take a Bow – Rihanna
You gotta be Rihanna brave or at least close to being able to say all the things you need to, to the person who did you dirty in the relationship. Especially if the cheat is putting up a show and trying to still play with your head.
If you’re not as brave, listen to this and take a cue from the lyrics. You could learn a thing or 2.
You look so dumb right now
Standin’ outside my house
Tryin’ to apologize
You’re so ugly when you cry
Just cut it out
Don’t tell me you’re sorry ‘cause you’re not
Baby when I know you’re only sorry you got caught…
16. New Rules – Dua Lipa
When you need that reminder that you shouldn’t let your ex play you again. This message is more for yourself than it concerns the player.
There is always that point at the end of every relationship that you need to tell yourself that it is over for real. F*ck whatever the person made you feel, he/she hurt you once, they will do it again.
He makes me feel like nobody else, nobody else
But my love
He doesn’t love me, so I tell myself, I tell myself
One: Don’t pick up the phone
You know he’s only callin’ cause he’s drunk and alone
Two: Don’t let him in, you’ll have to kick him out again
Three: Don’t be his friend
You know you’re gonna wake up in his bed in the mornin’
And if you’re under him, you ain’t getting’ over him…
17. Irreplaceable – Beyonce
Just like what was said above about Rihanna’s ‘Take a Bow’, Irreplaceable requires bravery. A dose of that and an entire dash of ‘I DON’T GIVE A F*CK’.
Throw out whoever misbehaves and does sh*t to you because they think they are irreplaceable in your life. Nobody should have that type of confidence and when they think they do, leave them with the shock of their lives like Beyonce propagates in this song.
You must not know about me, you must not know about me
I could have another you in a minute
Matter of fact, he’ll be here in a minute, baby
You must not know about me, you must not know about me
I can have another you by tomorrow
So don’t you ever for a second get to thinking
18. F*ck You B*tch – DMX
In a feat of rage, this is your go-to song. Nope, it won’t calm you down, if that’s the type of song you’re looking for. It won’t make you feel better, either, unless you want to feel better about being angry.
This song will do the opposite of calming you down. In fact, if you get to throw cups and smash bottles, I guess DMX would be proud.
But things don’t go the way they supposed
And this b*tch getting me back in my clothes
And I’m gon’ get on the road and do what the fog do
ARF ARF! Your whole crew
But things don’t go the way they supposed
And this b*tch getting me back in my clothes
And I’m gon’ get on the road and do what the dog do
ARF ARF! Your whole crew…
19. You Don’t Have to Call – Usher
We all know some exes are never satisfied after breaking your heart. They’d still want to keep in touch and finish you off totally.
If you don’t have the right words to tell them to f*ck off or you don’t want to be rude, send them this song. If they’re smart, they’ll get the gist and never bug you again.
Aw girl, your face is saying ‘why?’
Tears in eyes
Should’ve been more smart about it
Should’ve cherished me, listening to friends
Now it’s the end
And again, no story can end without it
I loved you
You were my girl
You see, I
Thought the world of you
But you’re steady leaving, baby
You don’t have to call
It’s okay girl
‘Cause I’ma be alright tonight…
20. Caught Out There – Kelis
Most of the heartbreaks and causes of breakups happen because 1 person cheated. The scariest part of being cheated on is when it was done indiscriminately. How could they?
In this song, you’d go through a journey of emotions similar to what you may have been through. You could also get pointers on how to handle the situation if you’re still in it.
So sick of your games, I’ll set your truck to flames
And watch it blow up, blow up, tell me (hahaha)
How you gonna see it now
So far from sincere (I love you)
Fabrications in my ear
Drive me so far up the wall
I come slidin’ down…
21. Done – The Band Perry
When you’re done being a play-thing and you want to pass this message across and let the heartbreaker that you’re done and they can go f*ck themselves. Being done with a relationship or someone who has hurt you many times shouldn’t be so difficult but you find that it sometimes is.
You’ve been wearing that crown and tearing me down
It’s been a while since you’ve treated me right
You strung me along for far too long
‘Cause I never gave up the fight, until now
It’s gonna hit you hard ‘til you see stars
It’s gonna put through you a world of hurt
Oh I don’t believe in getting even but getting what you deserve
Oh my, oh my, huh…
22. Shut Up And Let Me Go – The Ting Tings
When you feel betrayed in all ramifications. In this song, there was first a hurting, then the grand pain that comes with knowing that the person who hurt you is living his/her best life.
What greater betrayal is there than that of knowing you’ve been hurt and you’re the only one suffering?
Shut up and let me go
This hurts, what I can’t show
For the last time you have me in bits
Now shut up and let me go
For fear of living in regret
I’ve changed since from when we first met
Now, oh, so easily you’re over me
Gone is love
It’s me that ought to be moving on
You’re not adorable
I want something unignorable…
23. Since You’ve Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson
Whoosh! A breath of fresh air it’s been since the break-up, right? It is relieving to know that you can live freely and happily now.
It is one of the most fulfilling feelings that come after sending someone who was bad for you to h*ll.
Yo had your chance, you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth, I just can’t take it
Again and again, and again, and again…
24. Ridin Solo – Jason Derulo
There are very few better ways to tell an ex-lover ‘f*ck you’ and living your best life after the break-up is on the top 5.
Go on and do all the things you’ve always wanted to do that they probably never let you do, before.
Yeah, I’m feelin’ good tonight
Finally doing me and it feels so right, oh
Time to do the things I like
Going to the club, everything’s alright, oh
No one to answer to
No one to that’s gon’ argue, no
And since I got that hold off mee
I’m livin’ life now that I’m free, yeah…
25. Fighter – Christina Aguilera
You’re sick and tired of being treated like you’re nothing? This song is for all those tired of being manipulated and lied to. If you’ve also been cheated on and deceived, you’d be interested in the lyrics of this song.
Well, I thought I knew you
Thinkin’ that you were true
Guess I, I couldn’t trust
Called your bluff, time is up, ‘Cause I’ve had enough
You were there by my side, always down in flames
‘Cause your greed sold me out in shame, mm-hmm…
26. Gives You Hell – The All-American Rejects
As the title suggests, this song will make you wish that the betrayer will pass through hell. You wish everything that happens to the person will make them miserable. What better way to tell your ex to f*ck off than to give you hell.
When you see my face, hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell
When you walk my way, hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell
Now where is your picket fence, love?
And where’s that shiny car?
And did it ever get you far?
You never seemed so tense, love
I’ve never seen you fall so hard
Do you know where you are?…
27. Sorry – Beyonce
The title says ‘Sorry’ right? I’m certain Beyonce meant sorry for all the IDGAF things she sang in this song. There should be nothing to apologize for when you want to
He trying to roll me up, I ain’t picking up
Headed to the club, I ain’t thinking ‘bout you
Me and my ladies sip my D’USSE cup
I don’t give a fuck, chucking my deuces up
Suck on my balls, pause, I had enough
I ain’t thinking ‘bout you
I ain’t thinking ‘bout…
28. F.U.R.B (F U Right Back) – Frankee
In this social media era, have you been in a situation where you broke up with someone and they ended up playing the victim? Maybe they even went the extra mile to throw dirt on your name and even cuss you out.
Yes? Well, f*ck them right back!
See I don’t know why you cryin’ like a b*tch
Talkin’ shit like a snitch
Why you write a song ‘bout me
If you really don’t care
You wouldn’t wanna share
Tellin’ everybody just how you feel
F*ck what I did was your fault somehow
F*ck the presents, I threw all the shit out
F*ck all the cryin’ it didn’t mean jack
Well guess what yo, f*ck you right back…
29. Regret In Your Tears – Nicki Minaj
No holds back in this song as you’re not even sorry about what you feel and what you’re about to dish. In fact, you enjoy the fact that after you’ve been done dirty and living in misery.
Regret in your tears, now you taste ‘em
‘Cause you know I don’t chase, I replace ‘em
Don’t rush, take time, take some
I just want the memories, tried to make some with you
Now I gotta erase some with you

30. 10 Things I Hate About You – Leah Kate
One of the best ways to deal with and heal from heartbreak and betrayal is by listing out things that make you hate the culprit.
The keyword ‘Hate’ and you’d just realize that you want to call him/her up and tell them to go f*ck themselves.
I caught you cheating
You had the nerves to say you’re sleeping
Just not with her, but tell your friends
That I’ll be lost without you
And I’ll admit it
Sometimes I miss when we were in it
So I made a list so I never forget
All the things I hate about you…
31. Stronger – Kelly Clarkson
If you listen to the lyrics of this song and you don’t feel grateful that you’re single and free, listen again.
I know you’re upset because ‘how could he/her’ but her, you got your fun life back. No more walking on eggshells. No way, they got the best of you, not now when you weathered the betrayal and have been made stronger than ever.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ‘cause you’re gone…
32. None of My Business – Cher Lloyd
Is it really none of your business? You know you’re interested in knowing how miserable he/she is. You know you’re going to be elated knowing your ex, the heartbreaker, and betrayer, is having a terrible life with whoever they ended up with.
Damn, I heard that you and her been having problems
She likes to fight, I guess you both have that in common
Started at the top, and now you at the bottom
But baby, this is none of my business
Damn, I heard that you and her been having issues
I wish you the best, I hope that she can fix you
You’ll be calling me the second that it hits you
But baby, this is none of my business…
33. Sorry Not Sorry – Demi Lovato
Again, the best way to disrespectfully tell your ex-lover ‘f*ck you’ is by being the best version of yourself. They will always end up regretting treating you badly and betraying you.
When they come crawling back, remind them that it’s too late and be unapologetic about moving on.
Now I’m out here looking like revenge
Feelin’ like a 10, the best I ever been
Any yeah, I know how bad it must hurt
To see me like this, but it gets worse (wait a minute)
Now you’re out here looking like regret
Ain’t too proud to beg, second chance you’ll never get
And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt to see me like this
But it gets worse (wait a minute)…
34. Same Old Love – Selena Gomez
If there is anyone who has been through a crazy heartbreak, it is Selena. She definitely knows where she was coming from when she sang this song.
Same Old Love is a song for those times when someone will want to crawl back into your life again after doing you bad. But NO! You won’t let that happen.
Instead, put your head up, throw ‘em out, and scream ‘F*ck you!’ while at it.
Take away your things and go
You can’t take back what you said, I know
I’ve heard it all before, at least a million times
I’m not one to forget, you know
I don’t believe, I don’t believe it
You left in peace, left me in pieces
Too hard to breathe, I’m on my knees
35. Love Yourself – Justin Bieber
Do you have that ex who thinks so highly of themselves? Someone who was probably a narcissist and tried to get your attention even after the relationship had ended by going on and on about you?
This song tells so many truths that could hurt the person but ‘who cares anyway?’
For all the times you rained on my parade
And all the clubs you get in using my name
You think you broke my heart, oh, girl, for goodness’ sake
You think I’m crying on my own, well, I ain’t…
36. Fire Burns – Nicki Minaj
When you want to wish every bad thing to your ex for breaking your heart and being such a terrible betrayer. This song will do your heart some good when you let out all the cussing you have built up in you.
Go on, sing along!
You piece of sh*t
You broke me down
Thought you said
Would hold me down
But I can see it in your eyes that your blinded by them flashing lights
And you’s a stupid motherfucker for letting this thing pass you by…
37. Picture To Burn – Taylor Swift
Do you need encouragement to burn all memories and delete all pictures? Were you in a relationship with a heartbreaker and betrayer and you want to prove that you’re better without them?
Taylor to the rescue with this tune. All you need do is play this song, sing along, and get to destroying memories. You’re welcome.
I hate that stupid old pickup truck you never let me drive
You’re a redneck heartbreaker who’s really bad at lying
So watch me strike a match on all my wasted time
As far as I’m concerned, you’re just another picture to burn…
38. I Look So Good Without You – Jesse James
Sure you’re doing great all by yourself. They thought the breakup would break you? Show them that they were wrong and you’re doing so great by yourself and all alone.
Hey boy I would have thought that when you said
That you didn’t want me
I’d feel ugly and sense something was wrong
Standin’ front of the mirror, my skins never been clearer
My smile has never been wider…
39. Truth Hurts – Lizzo
It’s laughable for someone to think they broke your heart because of how badly they treated you. Show up, show off, and let the heartbreaker f*ck off because you’re a boss of your own and nobody has the right to feel like they can do you wrong without your permission.
You tried to break my heart
Oh, that breaks my heart
That you thought you ever had it
No you ain’t from the start
Hey. I’m glad you’re back with your b*tch
I mean who would wanna hide this?
I will never ever ever ever ever be your side chick
I put the sing in single
Ain’t worried ‘bout a ring on my finger
So you can tell your friends, ‘shoot your shot’
When you see ‘em
It’s OK, he already in my DMs…
40. Medicine – Queen Naija
This song is a ‘two can play the game’ song for people who want an extra push to retaliate. So you’re being betrayed and cheated on, you know you can do the same, right?
With this song, you’re saying ‘f*ck you’ to the person, his/her feelings, and whatever thing you shared.
Boy you ain’t gon’ ever learn
Play with fire, you get burned
I don’t think you’ll understand
‘Til I hit you where it hurts (hit you where it hurts)
So I guess I know what I gotta do
Give you a taste of your own medicine, hey yeah…
