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

Is there anything better than music on a stormy day? This is a ranked list of all songs about rain, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "rain" or "showers" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about rain as a subject or theme. When it's really coming down and the clouds' droplets are thick on your window, it's nice to listen to rainy day music that matches the mood of the weather. Songs like Hillary Duff's "Come Clean" paint the rain in a positive light as a symbol of renewal, while Slayer's "Raining Blood" puts a more hardcore spin on the concept of rain falling from the sky.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid rainy day tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the rain 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.
