* Music/KanyeWest's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLHU3w1nwdY Power]] is basically about an all-powerful celebrity getting off on how much people hate him. [[VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird Sound like anyone we know?]]

** It gets even better in the sequel, where Mojyas get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLzZUL9ZH6Y their own theme]] which they use to muck Locorocos' world. Man, they may be evil, but they sure sing a catchy song (even if its lyrics are complete gibberish)! And did I mention that three out of four bosses have their own version of it?

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEVeto3LQxg "Ignorance Is Bliss"]], by Jellyfish, is sung by [[SuperMarioBros Bowser to Peach.]] It came out on the album "White Knuckle Scorin'", which had a comic story insert based on ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''. (Although the comic had the characters continually referencing the titles of the songs on the album, this song was the only Mario-themed song on the album). The song and comic is about Bowser wanting to turn Dinosaurland "into nothing than fossil fuel" and join [=OPEC=] but his arrogance doesn't let him admit that not knowing how to read is the problem.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvlWJw9fD9M "Kuttetekaruna"]], from ''LocoRoco'', has no "real" lyrics to speak of... but it's hard to call it anything other than a villain song, given the frightened voices of its singers and its use of [[EvilLaugh maniac laughter.]]

** And in the sequel, we have [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNM5mFQ9siI Philistine]], sung by Margaret. The Japanese version has it's own [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNM5mFQ9siI remix]]. The song is largely Margaret mocking Travis for being a "fucking Philistine" with a petty and childish idea of being a "hero" and a badass while he's in reality a loser otaku.

* In ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople'', Strong Bad arguably gets one (in his usual, Strong Bad-centric style) when he kicks off the first episode with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzwgAxbRXYw "(You Can't) Handle My Style"]].

* The educational computer game ''VideoGame/IMMeen'' opens with a catchy Villain Song from the titular villain about his plan to trap studious little bookworms in a magic labyrinth using a magic book. It almost makes up for the fact that it and all other cutscenes were animated by the same people who animated the dreaded ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames'' (though that has lead to Meen becoming popular in YouTubePoops).
