* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2byMt7Gx-Fk Flowers of Flesh and Blood]] by Nicole Dollanganger. Whole song, but a single line says it all:
--> How come no one ever told me love was like
--> Being fucked with a knife?

* Music/TomLehrer was the pioneer and undisputed master of the AntiLoveSong. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, he traumatized generations with songs like "When You Are Old and Grey" (see the [[Quotes/AntiLoveSong quotes page]]), "I Hold Your Hand In Mine" (''My joy would be complete, dear, if you were only here -- but still I keep your hand as a precious souvenir'') and of course, the bleeding-purple "TheMasochismTango" (''My heart is in my hand--Ecch!'').

* KirstyMacColl's "England 2 Colombia 0" is about the singer's anger at being deceived by a guy she met in a bar:
-->You lied about your status
-->You lied about your life
-->You never mentioned your three children
-->And the fact you have a wife
-->Now it's England 2, Colombia nil
-->And I know just how those Colombians feel
:: It ends with "Now you can go to '''HELL'''... I'm going to Brazil / Still it's England 2, Colombia nil"

* "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" from ''Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" is an upbeat but ''amazingly'' cynical, misogynist, ''and'' misandrist song, stating that a man's romantic gestures and words mean nothing; as soon as his fortunes change or the woman he's with loses youthful beauty, he will dump the woman he's with, either for the next pretty mistress or to crawl back to their wife. Therefore, a woman should ask for tangible, appreciating assets (like diamonds) from her male admirers so that she can sell to make the rent when she is too old to be considered attractive.

* The mocking bait-and-switch song, where you sing to the person about how they are truly and wholeheartedly loved for all their character flaws by... well, someone who certainly isn't you.
