Quotes / Evil Feels Good

Go To

"Ahh, it feels so good to be so bad!"

To watch a planet
Shrivel up and die!
Oh, it's thrilling,
To be a villain!

Cause I'm the Bad Guy!

I'm alive at last,
And I'm full of joy!

It feels so good to be evil, it feels so good to be bad!
The most agreeable feeling I've ever had!
Oh, I never feel the least bit guilty, though I reckon I s'pose I should
Instead I'm rotten right to the core, 'cause it feels so good!
—Lyrics to "It Feels So Good To Be Bad" from the musical Tumbleweeds

And it's so easy when you're evil

And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
Voltaire, When You're Evil

"I do things because they feel good. I drink because it feels good. I killed my husband because it felt good to be rid of him. I fuck my brother because it feels good to feel him inside me. I lie about fucking my brother because it feels good to keep our son safe from hateful hypocrites. I killed your High Sparrow and all his little sparrows, all his septons, all his septas, all his filthy soldiers, because it felt good to watch them burn. It felt good to imagine their shock and their pain. No thought has ever given me greater joy. Even confessing feels good under the right circumstances."

There's days when I wanna give in,
But it's hard to be a saint
When you're full of sin,
Why would I ever think of goin' back
When it feels so fuckin' good to be bad?
—Lyrics of the song Villain from Theory of a Deadman

Fire Lord: No no no no, you've got it all wrong. Negligence made us this way. Twisted, dark, evil... but we like it!

Something vicious and vile is taking shape
Hatching out of the darkness as it wakes
Going after a sweet forbidden fruit
Evil has never felt so fucking good

Batman: You took his wife. His unborn child. And his city from him. Why?
The Joker: Why? You need a reason? It's probably the same reason I beat that puppy to death with a kitten last week. When the howling and meowing stops and all you're left with is a mess of fur and blood and brains — well, you just can't beat that warm glowing feeling inside.

Hey, man, can you feel that evil power pulling your soul back into your rotting corpse? It's pretty sweet. Man, evil sure is great.
