    So what is your drinking song? The song that comes on at the pub and you just go crazy to or absoloutly love... But specifically when you hear it at the pub its better! Or you hear it when you at home and makes you want to be at the pub with your buddies with a cold beer in your hand, and a packet of peanuts in your other hand!

    Mine used to be Thin Lizzy - Boys are back in town.

    But its now:

    You were right to begin with.

    Boys are back in town is quite possibly the finest song ever.

    But if I'm really drunk then "I would walk 500 miles" tends to be the song that turns the pub into an twirling frenzy.

    I know a good song about "Being on the good ship Venus" too but I think it's a bit rude for here.

    There's lots of songs that get me going when ******, I have to admit singing my (loud) way through SOAD's Chop Suey! always makes me feel pretty satisfied :D

    Otherwise, y'all want a proper drinking mantra:

    "Jawohl, jawohl,
    Wir trinken Alkohol,
    Wir haben keine Wasser,
    So wir trinken Alkohol!"

    Sung loudly in a loop. Fun! Bizarrely taught to me by a bunch of Danes, not Germans.

    Denis Leary - Traditional Irish Folk Song

    They come over here
    And they take all our land
    They chop off our heads
    And they boil them in oil
    Our children are leaving
    And we have no heads
    We drink and we sing
    And we drink and we die

    We have no heads
    We have no heads

    They come over here
    And they chop off our legs
    They cut off our hands
    And put nails in our eyes
    O'Grady is dead
    And O'Hanrahan's gone
    We drink and we die
    And continue to drink

    No O'Hanrahan

    They buried O'Neil
    Down in country Shillhame
    The poor children crying
    And fe dee din de
    Hin fle di dinfle
    Di din fle de din de
    In hey bibble bibble
    Hey bibble bibble
    Hey fle bibble de

    No O'Hanrahan

    We drink and we sing
    And we drink and we sing

    We drink and we drive
    And we puke and we drink

    We drink and we fight
    And we bleed and we cry

    We puke and we smoke
    And we drink and we die
