American Drinking Songs

my buddies and I just watched beerfest and can’t think of any american drinking songs, anyone know some?

I haven’t seen the movie, so I’m not 100% sure what you mean. Are you talking about songs that a bunch of buddies sing when they’re slamming beers? I can’t really think of any American examples of that either. We do have songs that you can drink to though, such as “Roxanne.” Next time you’re at a party break everyone into two groups. One group drinks everytime the singer says “Roxanne” the other drinks every time they hear “red light.” That’s all I could think of.

ummmmmmmmmmmmm
mullriver shuffle?
stan rogers…the year was 1778?..or something along those lines
Liquor and whores

How about this:

This is the best drinking song AND dance!

In Canada on the east coast we sing:

We’ll Rant and We’ll Roar
I’se The B’y That Builds The Boat
Drunken Sailor
The Jolly Butcher
The Night That Pat Murphy Died
Five Drunk Nights
The Chemical Workers’ Song
General Taylor
The Banks of Newfoundland
Down Went McGinty
Finnegan’s Wake

And of course… from my home town… Ottawa Ontario…

Finnegan’s Wake is a good one. I like the Murphys’ version. On the subject of the Murphys, The Spicy McHaggis Jig is a pretty good one, too.

And can’t forget Kiss Me, I’m Shitfaced.

I love this Bar. I think it’s by Toby Keith, correct me if I’m wrong. I’m not a country fan but it makes you want a beer.

Friends in Low Places by Garth Brooks.

Fun song that you can sing when drunk.

Fuck you I’m drunk

And the greatest drinking song of all time!

Helvetes Hunden GARM - Trollfest

Listen to it - I guarantee you’ll never want to drink without listening to it.

Liquor and Whores come in all ethnicities.

This might not be an American Drinking Classic song; but it’s a MASS drinking song!!! (and let’s be honest, MASS rocks)

Your welcome.
