Many of the greatest songs about disease are about general diseases, but others reference specific types of diseases in their titles and lyrics. Sometimes musicians even share their own personal stories about disease or write songs about family members who have suffered an illness.

The Phish classic, “Down with Disease,” is one of the best songs about disease ever written, as is “Social Disease” by Bon Jovi. Ween has written several songs about different diseases. Their tracks, “Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)” and “The HIV Song,” both made this list of the top songs about disease.
