When you go to a state school, a lot of things are commonplace: lush green grass, students hustling around campus and rolling hills, but above all else there are many, many bars.
When you're downing pitchers of Bud Light and hanging with your friends, there's nothing better than hearing your favorite song (or a plain good old sing-along.) Much like a professional sporting event, the music has a lot to do with the mood of the crowd. Drink up and get down to the top 10 college bar sing along songs.
10. Africa by Toto
For some effing reason this song is still really popular. I guess when you pair some nonsensical lyrics with a massive pop hook, people are just going to love it. When this comes on, you know it's party time.
9. Ocean Avenue - Yellowcard
There isn't a soul that doesn't go nuts when this song comes on. Trust me, play it in a large group of people. You will be amazed.
8. We Will Rock You - Queen
I feel like this is just the ultimate bro-rock anthem. People still love this song because, well, it's Queen, and well Queen is forever.
7. Single Ladies - Beyonce
Yaaasss there is no song like Single Ladies to get all the drunk girls out on the dance floor. Don't lie, it's great. SINGLE PRIDE.
6. I Write Sins Not Tragedies - Panic! At The Disco
I CHIMED IN WITH A HAVEN'T YOU PEOPLE EVER HEARD OF CLOSING THE GOD DAMN DOOR NO. Sorry, that's all.
5. Poker Face- Lady Gaga
This is another one all the "Woo" girls want to dance to. It's perfect for acting like you're in a music video, which is my favorite drunk pass time.
4. The Killers - Mr. Brightside
The chorus of this song was built for bars, trust me. You can just imagine Flowers and co in some dusty roadside Vegas bar playing this to a group of screaming locals. It's pretty amazing when you think about it for long enough.
3. I'm Shipping Up To Boston by Dropkick Murphys
Seriously. Anything. College bars love Dropkick Murphys, an Irish punk band that was popular back in the early 2000s. If you've been to a hockey game at any point in your life, you've probably accidentally heard one of their songs.
2. Sugar We're Going Down- Fall Out Boy
You can practically hear all the drunk voices singing the legendary hook of this pop-punk classic. WERE GOING DOOOOAAAWWWNNN DOWWWNNNNNNN.
1. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
My dad would be so proud of this. Neil Diamond has a stranglehold on stadiums and bars. College ones are the most likely to play him though, because everyone knows this song. EVERYONE.
