The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about art. Many of these song's titles start with "The Art of", including songs by Kendrick Lamar, Pantera, Outkast, and many other artists. Do you have a favorite art song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about artwork. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good art songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a art songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Da Art Of Storytellin' (Album Version) (Dirty) by Outkast, Art for Art's Sake by 10cc, and The Art of Shredding by Pantera. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has art in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about the arts, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
