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 competitions. Do you have a favorite competition 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 competing. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good competition 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 competition songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning)" by Kaiser Chiefs, "Stiff Competition" by Cheap Trick, and "Competition" by Little Mix. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has competition, compete, or competitors in the title or lyrics. Second, the song is conceptually about competitions, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
