The Top 10 Misogynistic Songs of 2013

8. "Dolce and Gabbana," RiFF RAFF
"Seven butt-nakeds sippin' drank in my sauna/ Only fuck with hoes who rock Dolce & Gabbana." And that's just the hook. There's also "Bitches act like Aquafina/I'mma be a steamer/ I'mma steam-clean 'em," and about a zillion other times RiFF refers to women as "bitches." I'm not even going to pretend to know what the hell it means to steam clean a "bitch," but it sounds ill-advised at best.

It also sounds incredibly misogynistic when coupled with the fact that RiFF thinks women are bitches and hoes, and he'll only fuck the ones who wear Dolce & Gabbana. Ladies, do yourselves a favor and wear everything but, or you may have a RiFF humping your leg.

7. "Redneck Crazy," Tyler Farr
So, on the stalker-misogyny side of things, here's this little ditty from Tyler Farr where he blames his woman for driving him "redneck crazy" and threatens to shine his headlights in her window all night while he throws beer cans at her shadow because she broke his heart, again.

It's all this little strumpet's fault that Mr. Farr is an angry, bitter redneck who can't be held responsible for the fight he's about to cause with her new dude. Women. We're the root of all evil, right? And not at all your equal because of our lack of penis.

6. "Belong to the World," The Weeknd
In this beautiful, touching, and not at all disgusting song, The Weeknd's lyrics are so misogynistic and uber-creepy that they probably deserve a higher spot, but unfortunately 2013 was the year of misogynistic songs, so here they stay.

Lines like "I'm not a fool/ I just love that you're dead inside," and "I know I should leave you/ And learn to mistreat you/ Cause you belong to the world" basically speak for themselves. Oh, and they would also like to "domesticate" the woman in the song, in case you needed further proof. And just because The Weeknd adopts an alter ego to play the sociopath in his songs doesn't make it any less disgusting.

5. "Blurred Lines," Robin Thicke
We all know why "Blurred Lines" is misogynistic. We don't even need to explain. And now we have "I know you want it" stuck in our heads. Great.

Florida Georgia Line is an abomination. Good call out. Lame losers.


One day left in the year and the author has managed to write the single most unintentionally hilarious piece of "journalism" this side of Salon or Jezebel. Hip-hop has always been blatantly misogynistic, and sure, the lyricism is pretty terrible (despite almost forcing oatmeal out of my nose from laughing) but to pick on something as innocuous as the two country signles listed above, it makes me think the author comes from the camp of the perpetually offended and can't take a joke. It's only music. Deal with it.


Are you saying country songs/acts are incapable of misogyny? Or are you saying even if the lyrics is misogynistic, she's a witch, (typed at work) for pointing it out and should just go along and/or get over it? Tip: if the gender/race/orientation/etc cited/used isn't laughing, it's not a joke, it's an insult. 


@MadMac To find mainstream hip-hop levels of mysoginy in country music, you have to put in the effort to actually find it. It will not be handed to you over terrestrial radio waves. The more I think about it, it becomes more obvious that this list was thrown together rather quickly and carelessly, opting to pick the low-hanging fruit, instead of actually putting in time and effort to research better examples from any genre. "Oh, shit. My list is mostly black (or pretending to be black) artists doing black music. I better throw some white country bumpkins under the bus or people will think I'm racist!"


Verbose, yet neither germane (nor Tito) to my question.
