List Rules Upvote your favorite country songs about fighting, fighters, and getting in a fight.

A word of caution: late nights of honky tonkin’ may lead to fightin'. And that’s exactly what’s going on with these country songs about fighting – at least in most cases. Country songs about fights are as old as the genre itself.

Musicians seem to have two different philosophies when it comes to these country songs about fights. On the one hand, some of these songs are cautionary tales, warning of the dangers of fighting and the possible consequences. One of the best country fighting songs is Kenny Roger’s heartbreaking “Coward of the County.” Tommy’s imprisoned father warns his young son to “walk away from trouble” if he can, reminding him, “Son, you don’t have to fight to be a man.”

On the other hand, some country songs about fighting celebrate the idea of kicking someone’s posterior. Modern-era country hits like “Small Town Throwdown” by Brantley Gilbert, “Dirt Road Anthem” by Jason Aldean, and “I Could Kick You’re A**” by Justin Moore are good examples.

Bar fights, parking lot fights, relationship throw downs, and more: they’re all here. Whatever side of the fence you’re on about fighting, mosey up to this list and pick your favorites – and then vote.
