List RulesSongs can be about ruling like a king would, or the rules that you follow everyday.

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 rules. Do you have a favorite rules 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 breaking the rules (or sometimes following them). You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good rule 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 rules songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include The Mob Rules by Black Sabbath, When the Heart Rules the Mind by GTR, and Rules for Breakfast by Cass Elliot. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has rule in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about rules, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
