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 being hungry. Some songs are about being hungry for food, but many use hunger as a metaphor for desire or lust. Do you have a favorite song about being starved? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about hunger. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good hunger songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a hunger songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Hungry for Heaven by Dio, Stay Hungry by Talking Heads, and Love Hungry Man by AC/DC. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has being hungry in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about being hungrys, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
