  • TimmyJusie

    Of all the Hip-Hop songs you picked Drop It Likes It’s Hot? Really?

  • David Verney

    How about Bon Jovi’s “Blaze of Glory” – surely that deserves a mention somewhere here too

  • How about Lloyd Price’s 1959 smash hit “Stagger Lee”? It was based on an old blues song and told of the title character shooting and killing the man he shot craps against.

  • John Louis

    I grew up with the Vicki Lawrence song, and anytime the oldies station I listen to every morning plays the Paper Lace song, I get the chills.

  • Dianne Fay

    Smackwater Jack — Carole King

  • LDR

    I don’t know if it was really THAT popular but…

    Neil Young’s Powderfinger

    I find it a really sad yet beautiful folk/rock song and I get sad whenever I hear it.
    You should really go listen to it, its really great!

      If we’re talking about Neil Young, then I think “Down by the river” deserves to be mentioned.

  • SeanP

    “Hey Joe” by Jimi Hendrix and “Janies Got a Gun” by Aerosmith were the first two that came to my mind.

  • ParusMajor

    “Bang Bang (He Shot Me Down)” by Nancy Sinatra from Kill Bill. Besides, you didn’t do the mmkay part when you said guns are bad. Guns are baad, mmkay?

  • ParusMajor

    I just thought of another good one: “Take a Message to Mary” by the Everly Brothers. (I almost wrote “massage” instead of “message”, but then it would have been a different kind of song…) 😀

  • ParusMajor

    I’ve got one more: “Who Shot Sam?” by George Jones.

  • ParusMajor

    I’m sorry if I post many times in a row, but songs keep popping up in my mind. If we’re talking classic murder songs, this one should be mentioned: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8a_T3U1rg2I

  • ParusMajor

    Here’s one more: “Who Shot J.R.Ewing?” by Tom Allen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuwyJobDEgA

    (@TopTenzMaster: if you think it’s bad taste to mention this song just a few days after Larry Hagman passed away, then just delete and ignore this post.)

  • SeanP

    “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.

  • Mike

    Notorious BIG: Who Shot Ya? Song about Tupac getting shot in NYC.

  • Levothread

    “Jeremy” by Pearl Jam

  • ParusMajor

    Oh, btw, who da fokk DID shoot the sheriff? And who shot the deputy? We have the right to know!!!

  • auto devis

    We didn’t start the fire is a great song

  • Tasmanian Devil

    Dear young and impressionable kids, guns are not bad! It’s the people who misuse them that are bad. If your country ever gets invaded then guns are great. You can use them to kill those who are trying to kill you.

    • ParusMajor

      I wonder if Norwegian kids (77 of them) shot by Anders Breivik agree with you.

      • max shrek

        i wonder if the all the Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists , who were gunned down, tortured, beheaded and otherwise murdered by islamist supremacists would appreciate your ignorant comment. if they were armed things might have turned out better…
