Angry/intense/awesome/badass songs that prominently say motherfucker?

I have Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire) by YACHT and Wicked Games by The Weeknd. What else to put on the Motherfucking Playlist?

This is an old one and it only says it once, but it's very clear. :-) Tonio K's great break up song H-A-T-R-E-D from the Funky Western Civilization album includes the lines:

I wish I was as mellow
as, for instance, Jackson Browne,
but Fountain of Sorrow my ass, muthafucka,
I hope you wind up in the ground!

Two that come to mind would be the obvious "Fire Water Burn" by the Bloodhound Gang (1996) and "Stupid MF" by Mindless Self Indulgence (2005)?

Birthday by Jesus and Mary Chain is pretty enjoyable on an otherwise forgettable album.

Yeah I'm a mean motherfucker now but I once was cool
Yeah I'm a bad motherfucker now but I once was cool
And I was born a long time ago today
And everybody loves me goes away

Oh, and Prince's "Sexy MF" is neither angry nor intense, but it is indisputably totally awesome.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' version of Stagger Lee (and when played live, probably has a few extra MF's in there)

The Jesus Lizard's Blockbuster deserves a special mention because its a restrained but angry song that uses the word motherfucker in an unusually effective way.

Not the best video, but the song is often 17-20 minutes long, and this one takes it from the breakdown at least, and the relevant part is about three and a half minutes in. In the outro for Jimi Thing, Dave Matthews Band interpolates Sexy Motherfucker.

True, but 'Compton's N Tha House' has Eazy E's classic delivery of "then you a stupid muthafucka" at about 50 seconds in. And it's a bumpin' example of a old school diss track!

Just now listening to music, this one's not as intense as Mindless Self Indulgence above:

Seconding Jesus Lizard's Blockbuster. Here's a live performance in which ... you never quite hear the word, most entertainingly at around the 1m30s point.

But the first one I thought of was Ditch Digger by King Kill/33°, one of the best bands ever produced by the Atlanta music scene.

The very best Motherfucker I've ever heard is at the very end of "Fired" by Ben Folds. MOTHERFUUUCKERRRR!!!!!!! ...it's really perfect.

P.S. Wouldn't it be fun to just get rid of people you no longer need in your life by firing them?

"I just want to walk away...
Every one of you is fired.
Every one of you is OH! OH! OH! OH!
Every one of you is FIRED!

AWOL Nation, Burn it Down - a track I have to be careful of driving to as it tends to result in a heavy foot.

Seems they also have a track called MF which features the word frequently, not one I'm familiar with but the lyrics seem suitably angry!
