Songs written about true crimes have always been popular. Artists have always felt compelled to contextualize the atrocities of every day life and commit them to tape. But songs written about real murders aren’t always accurate in their depictions of terrible events. That’s why when you hear a historically accurate song about this dark subject, it really hits home. While artistic license is understandable, there's something satisfying about a song that's both artistically sound and true to life. Tracks like "The Hurricane" by Bob Dylan and "Nebraska" by Bruce Springsteen have been ingrained into the cultural consciousness not just for their distinct melodies, but because of the way they articulate how we feel about tragic events. Add these true crime songs to your playlist and get ready to accurately jam all night!
