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

In an age where war is always waging somewhere in the world, it's good to have a collection of peace songs that promote a positive message. This is a ranked list of all the best songs about peace, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "peace" or "peaceful" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about peace as a subject or theme. If you're a pacifist and believe violence isn't the answer, then the music below might really strike a chord with you. Examples include Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance" and Operation Ivy's "Unity."

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 peace 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.
