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

Lock and load, because you've stumbled onto a list of gun songs. This is a ranked list of all songs about guns, as voted on by music fans like you. A bunch of these tracks are pro-gun songs, while others were written in opposition of gun violence. Some of the songs included below may have the words "guns" or "weapon" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about guns as a subject. Various firearms are sung about on these songs, including pistols, shotguns, rifles, machine guns, and more.

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 weapons 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. This list features items like “Ten Cent Pistol”, “Bullet the Blue Sky”, and many more.
