Dr. Horrible and Sweet (OMWF) get mentioned in list of singing supervillains. Other mentionable mentions are Dr. Frank-N-Furter (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Rotti Largo (Repo! The Genetic Opera) HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey) and GLaDOS (Portal).

Darn. Sweet's youtube video was pulled, presumably by Fox. They're quick.
I love how someone actually mentioned Ratigan in the comments. Vincent Price as a singing rat (in a Disney film with stripper mice, no less) is amazing. And GLaDOS = very yes.
I obviously love the Whedon references, but yay for the GLaDOS mention!
I'm rather fond of Robot Hell.
Awesome! Repo made the list? If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing this film yet - do. It is SO very worth it!
THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!! I just beat Portal again for like 103921309th time tonight too. GLaDOS is amazing.

GLaDOS is the best. I actually have a t-shirt with an image of a cake on, and "the cake is a lie!" written four times under the image.
I have that same shirt Xyron. GLaDOS is probably my favorite video game villian of all time.
GLaDOS! The Master! Sweet! and of course, Dr.Horrible!
What a wonderful list.

It reminds me,I've meant to watch Rocky Horror and never gotten around to it. and I wanna watch 2001. I'm not actually sure if I've seen it or not. I remember bits and pieces,but not much.
I didn't realize that the Jingle Bells Batman song was real. I thought it was something we made up as kids. :) David Hasselhoff scares me. *shivers* The Genetic Opera clip didn't sell me, but I know ASH will have me watching it anyway.

I love Nightmare before Christmas, but the Oogie Boogie Man does creep me out. But that's the point, right?

Love Audrey 2! Love Sweet (of course)!

BUT, GLaDOS takes the cake (ha)! I'm old-school games, but Portal was so much fun all the way through. And the cake is NOT a lie! :)
Cool, icallitvera . GLaDOS is probably my favorite video game villain as well. She has so many good lines!
This was fun, Joss got on twice. :)

Very OT, but I clicked on "Science Fiction Authors that Lit Geeks Think it's Cool to Read", which was really interesting. I'm fairly certain I've never thought of myself as a "lit geek", if such an animal even exists, so imagine my shock when I found that I love virtually every author on this list (the "virtually" being rather fittingly reserved for Wiliam Gibson, whom I just don't get).
Big Yay for Dan Simmons, my personal fave on this list!!
