"I've been drinking," Beyoncé once uttered, continuing the time-honored tradition of combining music and booze. And just like the best love songs can make a night more romantic and the sexiest songs ever made can heighten an already intimate evening, the best drinking songs are a surefire way to keep the party going. The best drinking songs include everything from bagpipe-ridden Irish rock fit for a St. Patrick's Day celebration to hip-hop bangers that show up on frat party playlists and the radio during your ride home from the club. We've picked some of our favorite drinking songs of all time, including upbeat tracks about tipsy good times and sad ballads for drowning your sorrows. If you're looking for a tune to toast to, one of these booze-soaked melodies should do the trick.
