Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about the future. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good the future 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 the future songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Future Games by Fleetwood Mac, Future Lovers by Madonna, and Ain't No Future in Yo Frontin by DFC. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has the future in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about the future, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
