Villainydome Nomination Thread: We REALLY Don't Need Another Hero!

Johnny Unusual

Look, there are a lot of great songs where heroes or secondary characters or even minor characters get to explain who they are, what they want or what they need to do next. But villains? Villains often get the best songs. Sometimes it's about completely indulging their base instincts and loving every second of it. Sometimes it can go the other way and be surprisingly moving, giving us empathy for the character, more than expected. But most of all, it's insight into a mind that is hopefully where we wouldn't want to live but it might be fun to visit in the world of art and/or fantasy. Today, we are here to celebrate the joy (and perhaps the surprising other emotions) of evil!
So let's choose some of our favourite villain songs and pit them against each other. You can pick up to four pieces of music and/or songs. They can have originated in any medium but it must be BY a villain or ABOUT a villain. It's got to be a song, not a theme. Words are key. I'm super down to do villain themes and a mix of the two down the line for sure but for this specific thunderdome, I want villains singing of themselves or people singing about them. It doesn't need to be a musical number (which may be what you consider when you think of "villain song"). I'm willing to do radio hits, but unlike the song above, banger though it is, it needs to be about a SPECIFIC figure, not just the concept of evil. They can be based on real people, if there's a Jack the Ripper song you like, for example.

Anyway, choose four (or fewer, if you can't think of four) and then we'll pit them against each other, tourney style. But don't feel bad if you don't win, it's just a fun way to share some cool jams.

I'll be taking nominations until August 15th! Then I'll start sometime not long after. Thanks and good luck to you.
Any other questions? Don't hesitate to ask! Or laugh maniacally.

Spoilers for Barbie
I'm Just Ken - Ken from Barbie
Friends on the Other Side - Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog
Sweet Transvestite - Dr. Frank N Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Cutting Edge - Rob's New Appliances from the Brave Little Toaster

(Do this all fit the criteria? Also, links to come.)

I don't know the last song for yours but... I feel like my first pick might be far more controversial so I probably won't complain.

1. Song #1 is probably worthy of debate but I won't say much since I don't want to spoil things for those who haven't seen Barbie yet.
2. I really almost went with a song from The Apple, just to be cheeky. Then I got really nervous someone might forget this one! Please don't!
3. With this, I feel like I might be playing to win... Just a banger.
4. This is the weakest on my list, but I wanted something I hadn't heard in ages, so I decided to try this one.


Threat Rhyme
Other Friends - Steven Universe The Movie (song starts at 56 seconds)
See My Vest - The Simpsons
Gorgeous My Stage - Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
We Are Number One - Lazy Town

4th nom coming later as soon as I find a decent version of it.

EDIT: Couldn't find a good video of my original 4th nom so I instead went with something much easier to find and probably a better nom anyway.

I had thought that all of mine would be from the 70s, but when The Imperial March was disqualified, I couldn't find a fourth I liked, so only three of them are. Who's the real villain here, hmm?

Bad, Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce (1971)
Godzilla by Blue Öyster Cult (1977)
If you want to tell me that The March of the Black Queen by Queen (1973) isn't about a villain, first you'll have to tell me what it is about.
And, finally, because instrumentals aren't allowed, I've changed my final nomination to Dressing Song (Do-Mi-Do Duds) from The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953).
