We’re taking a break today from talking directly about music and it’s lyrics to focus in on the trials and tribulations of running a lyrics-themed music website spanning from 1940 to the present. No, we’re not going to sit here and lament on this website still being in the incubation stage and not making any […]

A good-sized portion of the online community contains content you probably do not want your young children seeing or interacting with. We agree here at Decade Lyrics that even a large portion of our famous lyrics database contains sentences, phrases, slang and straight-up profanity that you don’t want to hear coming out of your kids’ […]

Any Best-Of list is subjective! Which is why we’re not calling this post The Best Singalong Songs. We’re talking about what we see as the most popular singalong songs.

  • Pineapple Head ( November 24, 2021)
    Detective is flat No longer is always flat out Got the number of the getaway car Didn’t get very far As lucid as hell These images moving so fast Like a fever So close to the bone I don’t feel too well And if you choose To take that path I will play you like […]

  • Get Smashed Gate Crash by Hadouken! ( November 17, 2021)
    Get Smashed Gate Crash is a party song to its core. The music video for the song is based on a very similar style to Blink 182’s The Rock Show, where the band is given a bunch of cash to blow with their friends. The video documents the group going to 4 different pubs and […]
  • Wonderwall by Oasis ( November 16, 2021)
    Wonderwall, a huge hit by Oasis in the 1990s, definitely belongs on a playlist of the most popular singalong songs. We’ve always found the actual sound of the song and vocals to be a little whiny sounding, which probably makes it so popular for singing along by both women and men. The lyrics to Wonderwall do […]
  • We Will Rock You by Queen ( November 16, 2021)
    Following an experience at a venue in the UK where fans chanted and sang the classic football anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone on their own after their performance, members of Queen wanted to come up with their own song that fans could sing, stomp or chant along with. What they noticed that night in the […]
  • Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leopard ( November 16, 2021)
    The year was 1987. It was a simpler time. Glam rock bands didn’t put a lot of time into hiding metaphors in their music and lyrics. The lyrics to Pour Some Sugar on Me are about pretty much what every other glam rock band’s lyrics were about in the 1980’s, having sex. Pour Some Sugar […]
  • Mr.Jones by Counting Crows ( November 16, 2021)
    When you’re first, you’re the best. Mr. Jones was the first single released by Counting Crows in 1993, and was also their biggest hit from all of their albums. The lyrics for Mr. Jones were written by lead singer Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson, with the other 3 Counting Crows band members getting composer […]
  • Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas ( November 16, 2021)
    Carry on Wayward Song, released in 1976, was the first major hit for Kansas. The song was a last-minute addition to the album Leftoverture. Kansas had a way of almost leaving out their biggest hits from their albums. The song Dust in the Wind, a huge hit for them and their second major hit after […]
  • Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen ( November 16, 2021)
    Bohemian Rhapsody is the kind of song that creates vivid images in your head when you listen. The song goes on in multiple chapters almost like a play, and the more you listen to it, the more curious about the song you get. The world heard this song as a great interpretation of different musical […]
  • Everlong by Foo Fighters ( November 16, 2021)
    Dave Grohl, frontman for Foo Fighters, himself has said in interviews that he wrote Everlong during one of the lowest points in his life. The time was Christmas of 1996. Dave Grohl was fresh off of a divorce from photographer Jennifer Youngblood, and was literally a homeless rock star. He had been a leading member […]
  • Bad, Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croce ( November 15, 2021)
    Released in 1973, Bad Bad Leroy Brown is a song set in the rough section of the city of Chicago that tells the story of the “baddest man in the whole damn town.”  Unfortunately, the baddest man in town made a move on the wife of someone else who appeared to be bigger and badder […]
  • Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf ( November 15, 2021)
    The term “heavy metal” was most likely first used in pop culture by William Burroughs in 1961, who used it in his novel The Soft Machine as a description of Uranian Willy, “the heavy metal kid.” Along with another Steppenwolf song, The Pusher, Born to Be Wild appeared on the 1969 soundtrack to Easy Rider, […]
  • Old Time Rock And Roll by Bob Seger ( November 10, 2021)
    There’s a ton of reasons why Old Time Rock & Roll belongs on every playlist that dares to call itself a list of the most popular singalong songs.  The 1978 song by Bob Seger is the most recognizable song out of his entire discography; if you grab a random person off the street (we don’t […]
  • Song 2 by Blur ( November 10, 2021)
    Why is Song 2 by Blur on our list of the most popular singalong songs? Because the enormously catchy and popular song Blur from 1997 belongs on that very list. Song 2 almost never existed in the first place. The band always considered Song 2 one of their most “deliberately basic” songs and never took […]
  • Polo Mint City by Texas ( November 10, 2021)
    The song Polo Mint City was created and released by the band Texas in 1997. They are an alternative rock band that formed in 1986, in a time when alternative rock bands weren’t really called alternative rock bands yet, and a time when bands weren’t usually named after US states, either. Especially bands that are […]
