The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about the army. What is your favorite army song? Whether it's rock, metal, country, or anything in between, you can vote up your favorites on this list of songs about the army, being in the army, or use an army as a thematic device. You can even add additional tracks if any good army songs are missing, so please enlist your favorites. If you don't like a particular song about the armed forces, dishonorably discharge it by voting it down. Check out the YouTube videos accompanying songs to find new songs to add to your army songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes, "Five Man Army" by Massive Attack, and "Army of Me" by Bjork. A song can be drafted into this list in two ways. First, the song has the army in the title or lyrics, or directly references armies or infantry or a collection of soldiers. Second, the song is conceptually about armies, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word. "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" by The Band, for instance, talks about the Confederate Army's defeat in the American Civil War.
