As tonight is fireworks night, you will no doubt need a soundtrack for your gatherings to get the party going. Granted, this is a bit of a mixed bag of musical styles, but there should be something for everyone on this playlist of the best firework (or fire, least) related songs we could find.
Kings Of Leon – Sex On Fire
Arguably the Followill brothers biggest single, that incessantly catchy guitar hook and huge chorus is almost impossible not to like.
Billy Joel – We Didn’t Start The Fire
We’ve all heard it a million times, but how much fun is it to try and sing along with Joel and his lightning paced delivery.
Hum – Stars
Not specifically about fireworks, but when you are looking up at the sky and the fireworks explode around the stars, this ‘90s alt classic should be ringing out.
Editors – All Sparks
This early track from the Editors is one of their finest, decadent moments.
Johnny Cash – Ring of Fire
The galloping guitar work of the Man in Black is unmistakable, and this June Carter penned track is Cash at his best.
Rage Against The Machine – Sleep Now In The Fire
This track from the final RATM album has all the bounce and groove to keep your party going long into the night.
Ryan Adams – Firecracker
One of the most beloved Ryan Adams tracks from his 2001 album, Gold, and an alternative country masterpiece.
The Prodigy – Firestarter
The track that made The Prodigy into a global sensation in the ‘90s, which saw them blurr the lines between breakbeat, dance music, and rock.
The Doors – Light My Fire
Released all the way back in 1967, this timeless Doors track will warm you up on this cold October night.
Katy Perry – Firework
You all knew it was coming, but try to deny it all you want; this track is a huge party anthem and perfect for fireworks night.
