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 monkeys. Some are literally about monkeys, but other songs reference monkey business or even a monkey wrench. Do you have a favorite monkey 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 monkeys. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good monkey 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 monkey songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Brass Monkey by Beastie Boys, Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey by The Beatles, and Monkey Business by Skid Row. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has monkey in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about monkeys, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
