List Rules Vote for your favorite Johnny Cash songs, no matter what album they're from or how popular they are.

All Johnny Cash songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. This ambitious list takes Cash's entire discography and lets you vote for your favorite songs. What can be said about Johnny besides that he is a music God? He was inducted into the hall of fame for rock, gospel, and country, cementing his legacy as one of the most influential musicians to ever walk the earth. All of Johnny Cash's singles are included here, but real fans know there are other awesome songs to vote on other than the radio hits. Even casual fans of Johnny Cash know songs like "Ring of Fire," so don't vote for stuff just because it's popular. 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 Johnny Cash songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

List features songs like "Hurt," "The Man Comes Around," and more. If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution and fight the system 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.
