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 televisions. Do you have a favorite TV 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 televisions. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good television 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 television songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include "Television Man" by Talking Heads, "Television Rules the Nation" by Daft Punk, and "Throw Away Your Television" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has television in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about televisions, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
