CeeLo Green, “Fuck You”
A contemporary fuck you classic that’s classless, just like the object of Cee-Lo’s soulful, self-aware anger. Never before has a song been so perfect for both a minivan commercial and a divorce party.
Smashing Pumpkins, “Fuck You (An Ode To No One)”
If anyone wasn’t sure that Billy Corgan would eventually turn into an obnoxious ass, this song’s title should have been a big tip-off. What did the subject of this song do to inspire such hatred? Listen to Pavement?
Lily Allen, “Fuck You”
Lilly Allen thinks that the opinions most of your parents and grandparents hold are evil. Fair.
DMX, “Fuck You Bitch”
DMX has a voice that sounds like “fuck you” feels, but “Fuck You Bitch” really hammers it home. Especially if you’re his girlfriend.
MacLean & MacLean, “Fuck Ya”
This one doesn’t have any malice behind it. I can imagine a kindly trucker singing it to hitchhikers at coffee stops, but little else.
Damageplan, “Fuck You”
Don’t you hate it when you’re planning a big “fuck you” speech in your head, and it just turns into a blast of incoherent vitriol? Damageplan understands, and they’re harnessing that, because they’re a metal band.
Wesley Willis, “Fuck You”
Working retail. It’s a trip! A hellish, destructive trip, where teens are your boss and you can get fired if you don’t pretend to care enough about another person’s shoes. Wesley Willis feels you, man.
Lil Kim, “Fuck You”
Sometimes saying “Fuck You” is uncalled for, so think before you act, or you might end up overreacting like Lil Kim. This sounds like something Pharrell would write for Gwen Stefani after Timbaland didn’t return a borrowed pair of BAPE socks.
Beastie Boys – “Hey Fuck You”
Damn, I forgot how good parts of To The Five Boroughs is. Fuck me, I guess.
Headstones, “Fuck You”
Hugh Dillon is a better actor than musician. Which is why it’s for the best that he said “fuck you” to his bandmates and a cheerful “hey there” to the lead in Hard Core Logo.
Bif Naked, “Fuck You 2”
Don’t be fooled by the ‘2’ in the title, this ain’t a diss against the number (thank God!). It’s more akin to receiving an AIM message from your lover saying you’re worthless—the only reasonable reaction is to write back, “Yeah, well so r u… asshole lol! Fuck you jerk L!!”
Against All Authority, “Another Fuck You Song”
Not another fuck you song! But, that’s what you wanted, so here’s another one from Against All Authority. Getting all political on your asses, they really give it their all with vitriolic anti-government protests against your big brother under politician’s favorite genre of ska punk. Expect change soon.
The Queers, “I Just Called To Say Fuck You”
Most of my friends call to say “Hello” or “Would you like to partake in some fun tonight.” The Queers called to say “Fuck You.” Look, I don’t know you guys, please stop calling. It really hurts my feelings.
Atmosphere, “Fuck You Lucy”
Rapper Atmosphere has a dependency problem to “Lucy,” an amalgamation of his ex-girlfriend, drugs and alcohol. And the only way to get over the conflicting pain and pleasure is to commit your thoughts to tape so you have a permanent record of yourself saying, “Fuck you! Get out of my life.” Metaphors are helpful.
Methods Of Mayhem, “Proposition Fuck You”
Walking towards their local courthouse, Methods of Mayhem are bringing their own proposition to the American people this election—“Proposition Fuck You!” It’s got a few simple rules—stay away from their crew (fair), fuck the pigs (sure), and smoke weed (alright). Oh, and also, Tommy Lee gets to do whatever he wants. I don’t know if this thing ever got passed, but at least someone is thinking about our future.
Pharoahe Monch, “Fuck You”
Los Angeles gets a lot of hate from people—understandably so, their police force has shown to be explicitly racist and corrupt. There can’t be enough songs about the subject and Pharoahe Monch joins the fray with their “Fuck You,” an anti-corruption rant that let’s everyone know that they’ve had enough.
Walls Of Jericho, “There’s No I In Fuck You”
If you didn’t hear her the first time, she doesn’t give a fuck. And despite the aggressive nature of the song, she’s really just talking about the power of friendship, which is very nice!
The Stiffs, “Fuck You”
I see a growing trend in fuck you songs. A lot of these people don’t care what you think about them, because they just need their friends. Take The Stiffs for example, who truly don’t care what you say, going as far as to say, “We don’t care what you say, fuck you.” So, say whatever you want, but they have each other!
Lil Wayne, “Fuck You” feat. Big Tymers
Before Lil Wayne became guitar-solo-cough-syrup-Drake’s-best-friend-ex-convict, he was just a good rapper. “Fuck You” is a pretty standard hype song, but with lines like “I treat beef like burgers, just cheese you/And for that cheddar, hungry niggas'll eat you,” you remember why you were okay with him saying he’s better than you.
Fear, “I Don’t Care About You (Fuck You)”
Whether you are drunk, homeless, depressed, helpless, hopeless, or whatever else, Fear don’t care about you. Confrontational and loud, there’s some funny irony to those Fear claims to not care about. Thank God I live in an ivory tower of money away from the peons—Fear must love me!
