This month, you won't be able to watch an episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" without seeing a half-dozen attack ads. The music world doesn't have attack ads, it has diss tracks. In honor of the onslaught of negativity in our political process, here are the six best diss tracks of all time. Let us know your favorites in our comments below, but keep in mind that all comments aimed towards RFT Music and its writers will only be accepted in the form of a song.

6. Lauryn Hill - "Lost Ones"

5. Anal Cunt - "Your Kid Committed Suicide Because You Suck" Anal Cunt's entire existence was based on being as offensive and negative as possible. So when Eric Clapton released "Tears In Heaven" as a dedication to his son, Anal Cunt responded with "Your Kid Committed Suicide Because You Suck." Without the magic of the Internet, we may only catch the lyrics to the eloquent hook ("Eric Clapton sucks / Eric Clapton sucks"), but let's take a moment to digest this second verse: "Your father sucks so fucking bad / You knew you'd get beaten up at school / You were sick of hearing 'You Look Wonderful Tonight' / So you jumped out of a really high window." Later, A.C.'s Seth Putnam sings "I almost wish you didn't die / Because I hate 'Tears In Heaven.'" It's the band's most brutal personal dig (although "311 Sucks" comes close).
