    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    “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?

    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…) 😀

    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

    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.)

    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.

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