I know they gave it an honorable mention, but "Be Prepared" is awesome and should be on the list proper.

Hellfire from Hunchback of Notre Dame should be much higher than an honorable mention

Holy crap, who wrote this thing?

They had "Hellfire" as just a runner up? HELLFIRE???

One of the most passionate, poignant and nuanced villain songs of all time and they had it as a runner up? Preposterous!

Are you kidding me?? Ratigan's song is "runner up" when a Pocahontas AND emperor's new groove song is on there? That was Vincent Price...you don't argue with his evilness.

ArkAngel: Hellfire from Hunchback of Notre Dame should be much higher than an honorable mention

Quite. The villain is planning to set a woman on fire unless she sleeps with him. Not really "It's a Small World" territory.

10. Nightmare Before Christmas, "Kidnap the Sandy Claws" (1993)
Lots of folks probably expected the Oogie Boogie song, but no. The little trio of kiddie monsters are way scarier, and a lot more fun.

IMO, this one doesn't really qualify because the 'trio of kiddie monsters' are not super-villains, they are only the super-villain's (Oogie's) henchmen -- and not very bright.

Muppet Treasure Island - Tim Curry belting out "When you're a professional pirate" should at least get a mention.

Upstage lads. This is my ONLY number!

Came for "Friends on the Other Side," leaving only half-disappointed that "Be Prepared" and "Hellfire" didn't make the list. I know, there was a ton of Disney already.

Also, I would have picked "Everything You Ever" as the best villain song from Dr. Horrible, but that's me.

All those snotty new appliances from the Brave Little Toaster insulting the older appliances. The stereo scared me as a kid.

While we're doing the nostalgia thing, list fails without Vincent Price as Professor Ratigan in "The Great Mouse Detective".

Albeit, list has "Gaston", so close enough, I guess.

I don't know what they mean about songs being in their "wheelhouse," but any list without "Be Prepared" in the top 10 is invalid.

I love Dr. Horrible, but he is nothing compared to Jeremy Irons singing and goose-stepping hyenas.

Very pleased to see Christopher Lee's star turn as "the evil Mr. midnight" in Captain invicible  made the list.  What other villain has ever so convincingly sang a song that used cocktail names as the lyrics to a song ethnic cleansing?
