Kaboom! Believe it or not, there are a lot of good songs about bombs that have been written. Some of these songs compare a great love to a bomb, while others are about wars and weapons of mass destruction, like nuclear bombs. This list of the top songs about bombs features music from the genres of rock, country, rap, punk and beyond.

“Spanish Bombs” by The Clash and “Atomic” by Blondie both made this list of great bomb songs. Rage Against the Machine are often inspired by weapons like bombs. Their songs, “Calm Like a Bomb” and “Bombtrack,” are some of the best. “Hammer to Fall” by Queen was inspired by the Cold War and they reference nuclear war with their lyrics.

“Come you masters of war/You that build all the guns/You that build the death planes/You that build the big bombs,” Bob Dylan sings on his hit, “Masters of War.” “Capital G” by Nine Inch Nails and “Miss Atomic Bomb” by The Killers are also two of the best songs about bombs.
