Romantic love gets most of the glory in pop music, but platonic friendship has inspired plenty of great songs, too – and no, we’re not just talking about the Friends theme. (Shout out to the Rembrandts, though.) Everyone from the Beatles to Drake have mined their BFFs for inspiration.
On this list of the best friendship songs, you’ll find huge pop blockbusters alongside classic rock anthems, rappers shouting out their squads and punk rockers honouring their fallen brothers and sisters. Listen with your bestie and you’re sure to find yourself crying in each other’s arms – or at least sharing a high-five.
