List RulesSongs below are about physical fights, fights in a relationship, or just songs with the word fight in the title.

We've all fought at some point in our lives, so why not write some great music about it? Here's our ranked list of the best songs about fighting, including songs about fighting someone physically with punches and kicks, as well as songs about confrontations and fights in relationships. Fight songs come in many forms. Some great fight songs are about fighting man to man, while other good fight songs are about fighting the powers that be. A few songs on this list of the top tunes about fighting are even about boxers and others are about armies.

No doubt about it, “Street Fighting Man” by the Rolling Stones is one of the best songs about fighting of all-time. This fight track was released in 1968 and it is still relevant today. Rage Against the Machine has tons of songs the reference fighting. Their hit, “Know Your Enemy,” illustrates the importance of knowing who or what you should be fighting against.

Some of the top hip-hop fighting songs include “F*ck Tha Police,” “Mama Said Knock You Out” and “How I Could Just Kill a Man.” The Flaming Lips' tune “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” is a fun fighting song that is full of karate chops.

How will we decide which is the greatest song about fighting? We need you to vote the best to the top and add any that we may have missed.
