Being drunk seems to go hand in hand with rock n' roll, partying, and rolling up to the club with your crew. Many musicians - from Garth Brooks to Snoop Dogg - have written the best songs about being drunk. With so many decades of drunkenness to investigate, we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of the greatest songs about being drunk below.

Country singers wrote the first great drunk songs, like Merle Haggard’s "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink" long before arena whiskey rockers like the Stones took center stage. One of rock’s greatest drunks, Jim Morrison, showed his love for the subject at hand in “Alabama Song.” Newer artists, like Fun., never leave a drunk friend in need with “We Are Young,” and Beyonce, long may she reign, sings about being crazy “Drunk in Love” for Jay
