LMFAO had a slew of hits when they released their 2011 album Sorry For Party Rocking. Their track, “Party Rock Anthem” appears high up on this list of the top songs about partying. No musician likes partying more than Andrew W.K. His hits, “Party Hard,” “Party Party Party” and “Party Til You Puke,” all rank amongst the best party songs of all time.

The last century may have come and gone, but Prince's party song, “1999,” is more popular than ever. The Beastie Boys had a hit with “Fight for Your Right,” but no party song beats R.
