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

Some of the songs below include Trash by Korn, Trash by New York Dolls, and Sally Trash by Tammy Wynette. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has trash or garbage in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of either word. Second, the song is conceptually about garbage, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
