"Violet" by Courtney Love

How Bitter Is It? 8 of 10. One rock star trashes another—with fatal consequences for his hair.

Sample Lyric: "Go on take everything / Take everything, I dare you to / I told you from the start / Just how this would end."

Backstory: Bitterness takes on new meaning at the hands of Courtney Love who, as lead singer of Hole, wrote "Violet" in 1995. The angry song is reportedly about her ex-boyfriend, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, whom she dated before her marriage to Kurt Cobain. Needless to say, things ended badly—and Love later described "Violet" as a "song that's about a jerk, I hexed him and now he's losing his hair." (Photo by Mark Mainz/Getty Images)
