It depends on what kind of hacking you're trying to do. Web-based hacking? PHP, HTML, SQL and its derivitives, and javascript for starters. Other hacking, like privilege escelation, etc? C++ is a must. C is also helpful, since many exploits are written in it, and many buffer overflows and the like are found in code written in C. Perl is also helpful, but not totally necessary. Bash and Batch are definitely useful, and a good knowledge of bash is essential for privilege escalation on a unix/linux machine. Don't try to learn them all at once, though. Focus on HTML and C++, then get familiar with C and Javascript, then PHP and Perl, then SQL and bash/batch, etc. Learn a web scripting language along with a programming language or OS scripting language so you don't get mixed up.

Know what you can do.
To start you will need to know and play with SQL, PHP, Java. Later you can go to C and C++. Read up on Javascript injections, SQL inhections and then HTML.

Here are the best sites to learn from:
www.hackthissite.org (mostly web hacking)
and some more hacker forums:
www.criticalsecurity.net
and a hacker wargame site:
www.rootthisbox.org

Hands on is always best. It's good to learn the languages while you learn how you'll end up using them.
