List Rules Songs with alcohol in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about alcohol as a subject.

If there's one thing that hasn't changed since the dawn of music, it's the amount of alcohol musicians like to drink. Over the years there have been songs about beer, wine, whiskey, gin and just getting drunk in general. This is a ranked list of all songs about alcohol, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "alcohol" in the lyrics or title, while others are about the hooch as a subject or theme. These are the songs you want to hear when you're boozing at the bar, as they remind you that liquor can solve almost all of life's problems.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the alcohol songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more. Songs featured on this poll include everything from “Brass Monkey” to “Suicide Solution.”
