List Rules Vote up the songs that make safety sound cool.

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

Some of the songs below include "The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats, "Broken Safety" by Jadakiss, and "Safety in Numbers" by Joan Osborne. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has safety in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about safety or staying safe, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
