100+ Greatest Bar Songs

We all know that the musical roster played throughout the course of any given night can either trigger tipsy turmoil or beget bounties of bliss. The capacity to commandeer the jukebox and orchestrate the evening's musical selection is a staple of bar-hopping that serves as both novelty and expressionism.

The jukebox, an ancient predecessor to Pandora, social media networks, and other techno-savvy platforms, give users and barflys alike, an opportunity to interact with and add value to the communal environment If you're on the socially inept side of the spectrum or a plain old wallflower, domineering the jukebox with Fonzie-esque finesse might be all that you need to enter the limelight.

This technologically evolving means of user-generated content control, however, can be a precarious terrain—subject to emotional caprice, sporadic whimsy and demented yearnings to ferociously fist pump rage.

While there is no concrete list of jukebox party fowls, you should probably avoid toxic sources of crowd animosity and avoid selecting a notorious Song of Shame.

  • Journey
  • Adele-esque boohoo breakup beats
  • And anything resembling a Tourette induced temper tantrum
