Top 25 Songs for Gun Control

Rock Songs About Guns, and the Bad Effect of Owning Guns

As the debate rages on for gun control: whether you value the right to life more than the right to bear arms, or the right to safety for our children over our right to caress a revolver … we have a music playlist for your anti-gun rally. These are the top 25 pop and rock songs speaking out against guns. Our Gun Control Song play-list:

1 - Ohio by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is possibly the most iconic song on the list, and one of the oldest.

2 - Death on two Legs by Queen. People shoot other people, but they couldn't do it if they didn't have guns. "Guns don't kill people, People kill people." Don't believe the NRA lies.

3 - Billy's Got a Gun by Def Leppard about a school kid in despair who shoots and goes on the run.

4 - Kids with Guns by Gorillaz, something far too real these days.

5 - The End by the Doors. This is the end, if we can't get some control on this mess.

6 - The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun by Julie Brown

7 - The Devil's Right Hand by Steve Earle ...the pistol is the devil's right hand.

8 - Jeremy by Pearl Jam about a school kid in turmoil, based on the true story of a 15-year old boy.

9 - Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix. Hey Joe, I said where you goin' with that gun in your hand, oh, I'm goin' down to shoot my old lady, You know I caught her messin' 'round with another man

10 - Another One Bites the Dust by Queen

11 - Shot in the Dark by Grace Slick

12 - Eighteen and Life to Go by Skid Row

13 - The Guns of Brixton by the Clash

14 - Barrel of a Gun By Depeche Mode

15 - Lawyers, Guns & Money by Warren Zevon The three evils of life. The NRA has all 3.

16 - The Ballad of Dwight Frye by Alice Cooper. Insanity is gun worship.

17 - Guns, Guns, Guns by the Guess Who

18 - Run Joey Run by David Geddes

19 - Love Gun by Kiss, men with guns only try to compensate for small love guns.

20 - Wild Wild West by the Escape Club, because that's what America's schools have become.

21 - Shot in the Dark by Ozzy Osbourne, no relation to the Slick song.

22 - Janie's Got a Gun by Aerosmith

23 - Save the Children by Marvin Gaye

24 - Shot through the Heart by Bon Jovi

25 - Bad Company by Bad Co. A song that might be about the NRA? 

Bonus: 26 - The Night Chicago Died by Paper Lace
Bonus Album: Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player (LP) Elton John

Now you have a song list for your next anti-gun rally, or an anthem for your next republican convention. Works either way. Replace the 2 nd amendment with the "right to safety for our kids." Above all, we deserve the right not to be shot by our neighbor who has had too much too drink, or is his own neighborhood watch vigilante, or maybe just had a bad day. No one ever slaughtered a cafeteria full of kids with a knife. Keep our streets and schools safe and clean. No more guns.
