Obesity has been common for a long time now, and several musicians have paid tribute to the overweight lifestyle with amazing songs about being fat. Most songs about being fat are empowering and some songs about being fat are also funny. A few of these fat songs are about men, but most of these tracks are actually about women.

“Baby Got Back” had us all singing the joys of a fat butt back in 1992, but Meghan Trainor came onto the scene in 2014 with her empowering hit, “All About That Bass.” Morrissey has written multiple songs about being fat. His solo hit, “You're the One for Me, Fatty” and The Smiths' track, “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others” both made this list of the best songs about fat people.

Weird Al Yankovic cracked up music fans with his parody of Michael Jackson's “Bad,” entitled “Fat” and Spinal Tap featured the song “Big Bottom” in their 1984 rockumentary. Hands down, one of the best songs about being fat has to be “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen.

Which song about being overweight do you think is the best of the bunch? Give it a thumbs up and share your thoughts in the comments section.
