Musicians tend to be a group of bugged out people, so naturally they’ve written a bunch of songs about bugs. Insects and music go hand in hand in this list that covers every form of buggery one can think of. Every insect gets their say in these songs. Whether bugs are your friend or you smash every single one you see, you’ll be sure to find songs on this list of songs about insects that you’ll bug out to.

“Insect Blues” by the White Stripes is a searing take on the impulses that drive the natural world. “The Bug” was a single off of Dire Straits last album, On Every Street. "Ants Marching" by DMB compares the monotony of human life to that of ants.
