Labor Day weekend celebrates the men and women of America who work hard, and we couldn’t think of a better way to do that than with some Rock and Roll! So sit back, grab a drink, and turn it up because these songs are dedicated to you. Here’s your list of the Top 5 Songs that will Rock your Labor Day!
1. Rush – "Working Man"
Who can't relate to getting "up at seven" and going to "work at nine" at some point in their lives? From Rush's debut LP, "Working Man" captures that feeling of coming home and the end of a long day (and that classic guitar solo doesn't hurt either).
2. Lynyrd Skynyrd – "Workin’ for MCA"
Though it seems like it'd be hard to relate to a band singing about getting a major recording contract, this Skynyrd track pays homage to the many years it took for the guys to get there.
3. Bruce Springsteen – "Working on the Highway"
Despite being a longtime music icon, the Boss never forgets his working-class roots. With lyrics about going out for a wild night after a long week, "Working on the Highway" is perfect for a rockin' Labor Day.
4. Skid Row – "Slave to the Grind"
"Slave to the Grind" may not be the cheeriest track on this list, but it's still a great song. For those days when you're feeling like you're at the end of your rope, Skid Row will make you feel like you're "king of the world."
5. Bon Jovi – "Work for the Working Man"
This Bon Jovi classic is about making a living and getting your hands dirty! If you can relate, feel free to crank this one up!
