Everything I Know About Business, I Learned From Rock-n-Roll

Last night I ventured downtown to hear the band The Accountants play. The four band members all have day jobs, and two of them really are CPAs. They have original songs related to work like "Slacker," "Suck Up," and "Keepin' Up With The Jonses." They were pretty good.

I got to thinking about their songs and wondered, what are the best rock songs that either are, or could be, about business? Here is my list.

General Business
Taking Care of Business – Bachman Turner Overdrive

Entrepreneurship
Start Me Up – Rolling Stones
Stayin' Alive – The BeeGees
Authority Song – John Cougar Mellencamp
I'm a Believer – The Monkees

Accounting
Money – Pink Floyd
Highway to Hell – AC/DC (this one goes out to Enron)

Getting Things Done
MoneyTalks – AC/DC

Strategy
The Times They Are A Changin' – Bob Dylan
Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac
You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet – Bachman Turner Overdrive
