Songs About Hating Women

Having a feeling of hate for women is usually a short-term phase men go through. It could be caused by anger towards an ex, a sour mother son relationship, because of rejection from women, or other. Musicians have also felt these emotions before, and misogynistic songs are then made. Here are some of those songs about hating women.

“Loyal” by Chris Brown ft. Lil Wayne, Tyga

Song Year: 2005

“Gold Digger” is the 4th track from Kanye West’s 2nd studio album, Late Registration. The song features Jamie Foxx and additional vocals from Don C and Plain Pat.

At first, listen, and thanks to its catchy, rhythmic beat, you might not think much of it. Nevertheless, considering the “Gold Digger” is a very gender-specific, one-sided term, it does cast doubt on the track’s overall message. Kanye portrays women as materialistic and manipulative individuals.

“Smack That” is a crunk tune by American singer cum songwriter Akon, featuring American rapper Eminem. The song featured on Akon’s 2nd album, Konvicted, was acclaimed as a fantastic club song.

However, while many praised the song for being memorable and infectious, particularly because of its throwback style, the track wasn’t short of criticism. If you pay attention to the lyrics, they convey the objectification and possessiveness of women, which gives the song a misogynistic vibe.

“Salt Shaker” by Ying Yang Twins (ft. Lil John & The East Side Boyz)

“Salt Shaker” by Ying Yang Twins is a raunchy song that urges women to shake their bodies in sexually suggestive manners. On one end, the song is about women who are proud of their sexuality and go out of their way to find sexual partners.

The track “Bitches Ain’t Shit” by Y.G. ft. Tyga, Nipsey Hussle is the perfect example of a song that depicts outright misogyny. Its lyrics show total disregard for women and perceive them as lesser humans.

Cat Stevens’s iconic song “Wild World ” features a subtly misogynistic message that isn’t explicitly stated. The lyrics serve as a warning and expression of parental worry for a lover who’s leaving.

Stevens expresses the desire to protect the lady from the harsh realities of life. Although it was probably well-intended, some view it as suppressing the lady’s freedom and reaffirming stereotypical gender norms.

The Rolling Stones were always intended to be somewhat offensive. When first contracted, they were intended to be a grittier response to the Beatles. And whereas the Beatles had “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Under My Thumb” by The Stones was a misguided attempt at romance.
