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

We all love our grandparents, so why not find some good music dedicated to them? This is a ranked list of all songs about a grandparent, as voted on by music fans like you. There are a lot of great grandma and grandpa songs on this list, but not all of this music is stuff they would necessarily want to listen to  Some of the songs included below may have the words "grandma" or "grandpa" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about grandparents as a subject or theme.
