27 Songs About Fake Friends

It's no secret that we all have them: friends who stab you in the back, friends who don't stick up for you when you need it most, and friends who don't even bother to show up when they know they're needed. And with the prevalence of social media clout-grabbing, you can easily present an image of yourself as something other than who you are.

There's nothing like the pain of being betrayed by someone you thought was your friend. If you've ever felt betrayed by a friend, then you know how painful it can be. You're not alone in this experience.

We've put together a list of songs about fake friends that capture how it feels to realize that your “friend” isn't who you thought they were. We hope these songs help you recognize the change in your relationship and even come out stronger on the other side of betrayal.

“Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)” by Fall Out Boy

Year: 2018

The narrator of “Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)” by Fall Out Boy says he hates his friends so much that he is willing to give them up. He wonders if being alone in space is better than being with fake friends.

He's constantly late because he doesn't want to be around people who don't care about him. And he knows they'll never notice if he's late.

Fall Out Boy fans said they “sold out” when they developed more of a Pop Rock sound instead of an Alt-Rock sound. Those fair-weather fans are like the narrator's fake friends—they want him to be something different than what he is.

To push back, Fall Out Boy made a video like an infomercial that was “selling” band members. They tried to become what people wanted them to be, but it still wasn't enough.

“Hey Look Ma, I Made It!” by Panic! At The Disco

Year: 2020

“FFF” by Bebe Rexha and G-Eazy

Year: 2017

FFF is a song by Bebe Rexha and G-Eazy. It means “f–k fake friends,” and it's about how the narrator compares friends to seasons.

The narrator says that in LA, there are many imposters and fakers—people who talk behind people's backs and aren't loyal or honest. But the narrator can't be too worried about those kinds of friends because they're just like the seasons: they come and go, but the real ones stay with you year after year.

“Real Friends” by Kanye West

Year: 2018

Kanye West's song “Real Friends” is about the importance of having real friends, especially men. He believes people take advantage of his friendship and loyalty, and he doesn't even trust his family.

In the first verse, he says he's too busy to be a real friend because he's focused on his career goals. He also says that his friends are posing too much in front of him, so it feels like they're not truly there for him when he needs them.

This could be a reference to how much money changes relationships, or it could be a reference to how people only want to associate with you if they think they'll get something out of it (like money).

“Backstabber” by Kesha

Year: 2010

The song “Backstabber” by Kesha is about a girl who feels betrayed by her friend because the friend talks about Kesha behind her back. In the song, Kesha is at a party. She notices that one of her friends is gossiping about her with another girl.

The two girls talk about how Kesha dresses and what she does in bed. They're jealous of Kesha's style and sex life, so they try to make her look bad so that people will not like her. This action hurts Kesha because she thought they were friends and should be loyal to each other.

“On The Road” by Post Malone ft. Meek Mill and Lil Baby

Year: 2019

The song “On The Road” by Post Malone ft. Meek Mill and Lil Baby are about how the artist feels about his friends who he thinks supported him when he was unpopular.

But now that he is successful, they pretend to have supported him all along. So he calls out these fake friends, saying he no longer needs them.

“Without Me” by Halsey

Year: 2018

“Without Me” is a song by Halsey that explores what it means to be an artist in a world where people only care about you when they can use you. The song is about someone she used to be close with and who she used to support, but now that this person has become famous, they've completely abandoned her.

The friend doesn't even try to hide the fact that they don't recognize her anymore. Instead, they act like they don't know who she is and make excuses for why they can't spend time with her anymore. Halsey feels hurt and angry by this lack of kindness, especially since she's always been there for this person—even when no one else was.

“FAB” by JoJo and Remy Ma

Year: 2016

FAB stands for “fake ass bitches.” In this song, JoJo and Remy Ma call out a bunch of people who they think are fake friends.

When you're trying to build something and make it work, it can be really hard to have people around who aren't on your team. You need people who are willing to support you when things get hard, not people who turn their backs when things get tough.

It's easy to see why JoJo and Remy Ma are upset about all the fake friends they've had over the years—and why they would want to put out a song like this one!

“Fake Friends” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Year: 1983

This song is about the pain of people who laugh at you when you're down but become friends again when you're on top. It's a lesson that you should never get too close to anyone who isn't willing to be there for you when things aren't going well.

It's a song we can all relate to: sometimes it's hard to find real friends who will be there for us no matter what. The takeaway from the song is that if someone doesn't stick by you when things are going wrong, then they aren't your friend—no matter how much fun you have together.
