There are many ways for artists to write about fatherhood. There’s the always popular “thank you” song. There’s the complicated story of growing up with a less-than-perfect father. There’s the father who writes about his own experiences raising a child … and then there’s every complex relationship in between. 

So, in honor of Father’s Day, we rounded up a number of songs written for fathers, about fathers, about fatherhood, and so on. You’re welcome, dads.
