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 the news. This includes songs about receiving bad news, as well as songs about the news and media in general. Do you have a favorite song about newscasters? 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 news. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good news 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 news songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Second Hand News by Fleetwood Mac, Strange News From Another Star by Blur, and No News Is Good News by New Found Glory. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has news in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about the news, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
