"Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake

How Bitter Is It? 9 of 10. Though the song may inspire nostalgia at any dance club, Justin Timberlake's music video is crystal clear and hostile to his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears. In the video, he sings about the demise of his Mickey Mouse Club sweetheart and begins to trash a Spears lookalike's house. He kicks a framed photo of the two and videotapes a makeout session with a brunette on Spears' bed. Who needs therapy?

Sample Lyric: "I know that they say, that somethings are better left unsaid, It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it"

Backstory: After their three-year relationship ended in 2002, rumors spread that Britney Spears was unfaithful. Then Timberlake released "Cry Me a River" which went on to win a 2004 Grammy. But where his song is seething with anger, Spears' retaliation in 2004, with her song "Everytime", is weepy and dramatic. The video depicts her downward-spiraling relationship with a faux Justin Timberlake and her own faux death. (Photo by Vince Bucci/Gety Images)
