7. Tom T. Hall - I Like Beer

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey's too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer

    This! #6 was gay af and shouldn't even be on the list. I was sure I was going to see Reel Big Fish as #1 but no.
    "#6 was gay af" Yeah! Hooray for Beer definitely likes men. Couldn't agree any more...
    I have kind of grown out of that kind of music but pfft, someone must have been really drunk to leave this song off the list. 
    No Alestorm-Drink?
    We are here to drink your beer and steal your rhum at a point of a gun !
    I think that songs just about alcohol and pirates as opposed to specifically beer.
    B double E double R U N, BEER RUN, BEER RUN. B double E double R U N, BEEEERRRR RRUUUNNNN
    I'll just leave this right here:
    Note: if you don't know this one, the drummer has some funny stuff to contribute...
    Am I the only person that thinks it's lame when bands write songs about beer/alcohol? I like chocolate milk but I'm sure as hell not going to write a song about it.
    NoFX - Bottles to the Ground NoFX - Seeing Double at the Triple Rock NoFX - Beer Bong Hank III - Six Pack of Beer Tossers - Buckets of Beer Get Up Kids - Beer for Breakfast Also, that's not Flogging Molly ... well done, UG for doing your research!
    I'd like to nominate "Hot Woman (Cold Beer)" by Goober & The Peas. It's about cold, refreshing beer, but it's also about attractive woman.
    Nero Galon
    Here Comes a Regular - The Replacements A Design for Life - Manic Street Preachers
