List Rules Songs with working in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about working as a subject.

Songs about jobs and working hard are something that almost everyone on the planet can relate to. Music about being a slave for the man can be therapeutic, because it reminds us that everyone faces the same struggles of hating their job. Whether you work construction outdoors or a boring desk job at an office there's no doubt that work songs can make you feel better about your situation. This is a ranked list of all best songs about working, as voted on by music fans like you. Some of the songs included below may have the words "working" or "work" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about working as a subject or theme. Songs like Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" are extremely popular, but there are plenty of other great work songs on this poll as well.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the working songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
