Top 10 Songs to Download While Drunk
5. "Carolina Drama," The Raconteurs
We know: it's Jack White, and he sucks. But the Raconteurs didn't, and "Carolina Drama" is a hidden drunken gem.
4. "Gin House Blues," Nina Simone
Plenty of musicians have covered this blues staple, which was the work of Bessie Smith in 1928. But out of all of them -- The Animals, Buster Bailey, Cannibal Corpse and a laundry list of others -- it was Nina Simone, the quintessential jazz diva, who did "Gin House Blues" complete justice. Go on and just download it.
3. "Tiny Dancer," Elton John
Nobody -- nobody, we tell you -- knows quite why this song is so good while drunk, but it is. We refuse to hide our love for it, and you shouldn't either. Hold us closer, "Tiny Dancer." We'll always drunkenly shout your lyrics with no shame.
2. "Fuck You I'm Drunk," Bondo

1. "I'm Shipping Up to Boston," Dropkick Murphys
