Enjoy this list of the best songs about spiders, arachnids and eight-legged freaks. Spider songs are few and far between, but we've collected the best in one place. Some of these songs are literally about creepy, crawly spiders, but others use spiders as a metaphor, usually for a woman. Rock, pop, rap and metal all have great songs about spiders in their genres.

David Bowie sings about the band, “The Spiders From Mars” on his 1972 hit, “Ziggy Stardust.” This track appeared on the iconic album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Gwen Stefani said that she was “walking into spiderwebs” on the No Doubt single, “Spiderwebs,” and Cage the Elephant released the song, “Spiderhead,” in 2013.

On the Fleetwood Mac tune, “Gold Dust Woman,” Stevie Nicks likens a witchy woman to a black widow spider. “The Spiderbite Song” by the Flaming Lips and “Boris the Spider” by The Who also appear on this list of the top spider songs.
