List RulesSongs with family in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about the family as a subject.

Family songs are always a great way to celebrate the bond of those who share your flesh and blood. Parents and siblings are the subject of these songs, with various stories told about the relationships between child and adult or brother and sister. This is a ranked list of the best songs about family, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "family" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about the family as a theme. Not all of the songs on this list are happy songs, as some of them chronicle the hardships and challenges of staying strong as a family when things get tough, such as the death of a parent, brother or sister.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the family songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
