Drama is a major topic covered in popular music. Gossip, backstabbing, and lies all make great fodder for dramatic songwriting. If you crave more drama in your life, this list of the best songs about drama is for you. Do you have a favorite drama 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 drama. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good drama 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 drama songs playlist.

This list of dramatic songs include the classic "No Drama" by Mary J. Blige, "Carolina Drama" by The Raconteurs, and "Drama Setter" by Tony Yayo. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has drama in the title or lyrics. Second, the song is conceptually or thematically about drama, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word. Even though Fergie doesn't want "no drama," she's still singing about it on "My Humps." Taylor Swift never mentions drama in "Bad Blood", but you know that exactly what that song is about.
