You might not have loved them as a child, but in retrospect they were only there to help you. Here are the best songs about teachers, ranked by user votes. There are good teachers, there are bad teachers, and there are even hot teachers. This list of the best teacher songs contains music about all kinds of teachers. From the instructor that is crushed on by all her students to the professor who is brainwashing students with political rhetoric, this list features them all.

The first teacher song that comes to mind is “Hot for Teacher” by Van Halen. This 1984 hit is full of fun puns and sexual innuendos. Another great song about teachers is “The Art Teacher” by Rufus Wainwright. Daft Punk has a different definition of a teacher. Their song, “Teachers” pays tribute to all the musicians who influenced them.

Pink Floyd questioned the benefits of formal education with their teacher song, “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2” and Morrissey called out his experience with Catholic school in “Children in Pieces.” Vampire Weekend also has a song which references teachers entitled, “Campus.” Fun Fact: the group's lead singer, Ezra Koenig taught English before the group got a record deal.
