Hail to the Thief

"All hail to the thief, all hail to the thief..."
Radiohead, 2+2=5

In musical theater, especially period pieces, it is common to emphasize the setting by having characters raise their voices in a song of sarcastic praise offered to the most hated political leader or leading figures of their day.

Not to be confused with the Radiohead album of the same name, which is incidentally also the Trope Namer.

This can overlap with "The Villain Sucks" Song. Compare Protest Song. A close relative of My Country Tis of Thee That I Sting.
