List Rules Vote for your favorite Jethro Tull songs, not just singles and hits.

Here are the best Jethro Tull songs of all time, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. The British rock group Jethro Tull made some of the most unique progressive rock albums of the '70s. Their folk-laced sound was distinguished by heavy riffs and one highly unlikely element: lead singer Ian Anderson's flute solos. All of Jethro Tull's biggest songs are included here, from "Aqualung" to "Locomotive Breath," but real fans know there are other awesome deep cuts to vote on besides the radio hits.

Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. Is one of your favorite Jethro Tull songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then kickstart a revolution by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
