Ah, to be seventeen again. Since it's the end of the year, we've created this list of the best songs about high school. High school is the best of times and the worst of times. Luckily, no matter what your high school experience is, a musician has captured it in song. Some of the best high school songs are about reminiscing while others are about the struggle to fit in and be popular.

Whether you are a brain, athlete, basket case, princess or criminal, you have to appreciate the great high school song, “School's Out” by Alice Cooper. This track brings the entire student body together to celebrate the last day of school. A good song about the high school experience, that never actually references high school, is “1979” by the Smashing Pumpkins.

“Hot for Teacher,” “Jeremy” and “School” by Nirvana all appear on this list of the top songs about high school. “Popular” by Nada Surf is a satirical song about the Gen X high school experience.
