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

Some of the songs below include "Black Math" by The White Stripes, "Do the Math" by Kottonmouth Kings, and "Math Suks" by Jimmy Buffett. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has math in the title or lyrics, or includes math related terms like adding, subtracting, calculus, or arithmetic. Second, the song is conceptually about mathematics, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
