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 societies. Unless you're totally off the grid, you can probably relate to songs about civilization, communities, and society at large. Do you have a favorite society song? Whether it's rap, country, classic rock, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about societies. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good society songs are missing. Also be sure to vote down any songs you wish could be banished from the civilized world. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a society songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "The Village Green Preservation Society" by The Kinks, "Society" by Eddie Vedder, and "Portable Men's Society" by Guided by Voices. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has society in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about the idea of society, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
