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 sick. Sometimes these songwriters were sick in love, or sick from disgust. Do you have a favorite sickness song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about being sick. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good sick 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 being sick songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Sick Again by Led Zeppelin, Sick as a Dog by Aerosmith, and Love Sick by Bob Dylan. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has being sick in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about being ill, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
