QOTW: Villain Theme Song

25 Feb

You may remember, about a month ago, we shared with you our personal theme songs. Today’s question, posted by Heather, is in a similar vein:

In the movie of your life, what are your villains’ theme songs?


So, the villain of my life’s movie has this theme song: “Space Dementia” by MUSE. It’s deliciously creepy and dark, but hauntingly lovely at the same.  A truly tormented villain in my life’s movie. 🙂


My life’s villain is called Procrastination. Perhaps you’ve heard of him? This is his theme song: “Living Dead Girl” by Rob Zombie.


My movie nemesis is definitely my evil twin/doppelganger, and “Maneater” by Nelly Furtado is most definitely her theme song.


I don’t really have one overarching person who’s been a villain in my life. As for personal flaws, of course I have some, but none that have really held me back from my dreams [so far]. I think the biggest obstacle I’ve encountered are people who don’t take me seriously because of my age, or who tell me that I’m too young to know what I want. I feel this conflict is best expressed through Alanis Morissette’s Right Through You.


What about you guys? What’s your villain’s theme song?

    Definitely AINT NO REST FOR THE WICKED by Cage the Elephant

    Is there a bad grammar and idiocy song around (does Ke$ha count? No?) Then I’ll go with “I can’t decide” by the Scissor Sisters. It’s darkly hilarious.

      GAH! I LOVE THAT SONG!! WHAT a good choice! It’s so delightfully wicked! 😀

        It was the first one that came to mind when I thought about villains.
        One of my friends once started humming to it, and I was like are you listening to the lyrics? She was not happy with me.

          Hahaha, but the lyrics are what MAKE the song so great! It’s total juxtaposition! “I can’t decide whether you should live or die” sung to a jaunty, upbeat tune? GOLD.

            It’s one of the main reasons I like the song! It’s so all psychological, which often makes the villain so much scarier.

    No villain would be right without this theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTuhuon1j6U

    It’s the ultimate anthem to my life’s villains, big and small!

      That would have been my second choice!!! Another awesome song!

    I love this question! Dethroned by X-Ray Dog would be my villain’s theme tune (or at least the music for our epic/overdramatic battle sequence!).
