- "Gin and Juice" by Snoop Doggy Dogg. You probably saw this one coming, didn't you? Well, it's a great song about drinking, having sex with the ladies in the other room, smoking buds and thinking about money. Drinking songs don't get much better than this.
- "My Piano Has Been Drinking" by Tom Waits. Tom Waits produced this drinking song well before the days he teamed up with beatnik William S. Burroughs. The narrator in this song about drinking insists that he hasn't been drinking, but his piano has.
- "I Hardly Ever Sing Beer Drinking Songs" by Johnny Cash. The Man in Black claims in this drinking song that a song about drinking is a rare novelty. In fact, he never even sings along with other people's beer drinking songs. The song is sung in the second person to a lover.
- "Whiskey River" by Willie Nelson. This Willie Nelson song about drinking is sung to a "whiskey river". It's a plea to the whiskey to take his mind so that he can forget about a lover. Whiskey's the only thing he has left.
- "I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink" by Merle Haggard. Just like the Johnny Cash song, this song about drinking is directed to a lover. He just doesn't want to go out tonight with his sweetheart and would rather stay home and drink.
- "Don't the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time" by Mickey Gilley. Mickey Gilley released this song about drinking in 1976. You have probably guessed that the song is about the girls in the bar looking prettier as you get drunker.
