Heist/ crime songs

Just listened to Charlie Robisons “desperate times” great heist gone wrong song , right up there with “the road goes on forever “ I can’t really think of any popular or rock for that matter crime tunes. They’re all Americana or country .?


Cocaine Blues, Johnny Cash or George Thorogood, but there were a lot of others.

Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday.

@reubent - absolutely - one of BOC's best songs.


Lawers, guns, and money by Warren Zevon

Breaking the Law by Judas Priest

Not exactly rock, but The City Sleeps by MC 900 Ft Jesus romanticizes arson.
