When we asked our Twitter friends what their favourite beer dinking songs were, we got two kinds of responses: songs about beer, and songs that are so good they just inspire beer-drinking.

We’ll leave the second type of song for next time, but today here’s some of the songs that were suggested that were about beer.

First up Korpiklaani, with Bring Us Pints of Beer – a song title that is instructional and very specific as well as kick-arse:

Actually, much of Korpiklaani’s material is about beer, but for now, how about a band that not only wrote songs about beer, but named their band for it too? I’m talking of course about ‘80s thrashers Tankard. Check out Commandments:

Did you catch the lyrics in the chorus? I reckon truer words were never spoken:

Life’s too short to waste your brew
It’s plain to see-obey the rules

Thou shalt not waste and thou shalt not spill
Just drink your beer – Commandments
Thou shalt not puke cause there’s no excuse
Just drink your beer – Commandments

What are your favourite songs about beer?
