* TanzDerVampire has ''Ewigkeit'', in which a ''whole chorus of vampires'' rises from their graves and plots to make humanity as miserable and insane as they are. It happens to be the most chilling song in the whole musical.

* From ''{{Hairspray}}'', "(The Legend of) Miss Baltimore [[DoubleEntendre Crabs]]". ''Front step, cha-cha-cha...'' There's just something about that one line that screams "you're walking into the serpent's lair". Michelle Pfeiffer even said she signed on for this one song. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCW-iFgUbKY It's not hard to see why.]]

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' has ''You'll Be Back'', sung by King George II as an AntiLoveSong about America's attempt to split from Great Britain. As you'd expect, it's deliciously hammy and villainous - the last full line is 'I will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love!' Interestingly, King George gets two more songs after this, and while they're both still villainous, in purpose they're really more of a GreekChorus commenting on the state of the American government at the time - first, talking about how the American underestimate how hard it'll be to rule a country on their own, and then about how shocking it was that Washington stood down and how little faith anyone had in President John Adams ('They will tear each other into pieces / Jesus Christ, this will be fun!').

* Sophie in ''{{Elisabeth}}'', as more of a KnightTemplar than a really sinister villain, has the rigid "Eine Kaiserin muss glanzen!" ("An Empress Must Sparkle!"), in which she bullies her newly-married daughter-in-law into (temporary) tears and submission. Later on, though, she sends her son to a brothel to weaken his marriage, and the shady madam and prostitutes' song "Nur kein genieren" ("Don't Be Ashamed, Dear") fits into this trope fairly well.

* ''Mozart!'' (from the same creative team as ''{{Elisabeth}}'') features a mute villain- Mozart's own genius, portrayed a a demon/CreepyChild in the shape of Mozart himself at age six or so that follows the adult Mozart around, constantly composing and using Mozart's blood as ink. Thusly, the big showstopping EarWorm villain-song-stand-in goes to Archbishop Colloredo, who's more of a petty annoyance than anything, in the form of "Wo Bleibt Mozart?" It's still pretty grandiose and nasty to the title character.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/TheSoldiersTale'' has "The Devil's Song," in which the Devil warns that though the Soldier may have won for now, Hell will win [[WeWillMeetAgain the next time they meet]]. It's a SpokenWord number since there are no singing roles, and also the only time anyone but the Narrator speaks over the music.

* In ''Theatre/TheSpongeBobMusical'', Plankton has one in the form of "When the Going Gets Tough", a PissTakeRap (written by rap artist T.I.) where he persuades the citizens of Bikini Bottom into migrating to a new home after their town is threatened by a destructive volcano. Using their fear to his advantage, he manipulates everyone into believing that the only way to face your problems is by running away from them; this, of course, is just a ploy to get all the citzens together, hypnotize them en mass, and become the supreme ruler of their new town.
