Earlier this week we talked about a few of the times that the Jersey Shore got some love on TV's Jeopardy!.

Now, let's take a look at the music business and check out some of the times that artists name checked our home in their songs!

    Jersey Girl

    Bruce Springsteen

    Was there any question that The Boss would have the #1 entry on this list?

    With, “…'cause down the Shore everything's all right/You and your baby on a Saturday night”, Bruce's classic is a shoo-in for the top of our list.

    Allentown

    Billy Joel

    Like Bruce, Bon Jovi, and plenty of other artists, Billy Joel sings about what he knows best - the places he grew up.

    1982's "Allentown", with themes about the move away from industrialization and factory towns in the years after World War II, includes the lyrics:

    "…well our fathers fought the Second World War/Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore

    It Must Be Summer

    Fountains of Wayne

    You know these guys.

    Remember, "Stacy's Mom"?

    Yeah, them!

    I've actually been a FoW fan since they came and played New Haven, CT's world famous Toad's Place when I was in college.

    They love to name-drop places, especially in the Northeast. With songs showing love to everywhere from Hackensack to New York City's Hayden Planetarium, they give us a nod on their 1999 track "It Must Be Summer":

    "…I try your sister on the Jersey Shore/She said you might be stopping by/But she's just not sure"

    The Private Life Of Bill And Sue

    The Beach Boys

    You probably don't know this song. I didn't. But I included it for a reason - obviously The Beach Boys are the deans of California beach living, so I think that it's noteworthy that they give us a shout out in this 2012 song from the album, "That's Why God Made the Radio".

    …Wasting time on a sunny day/Santa Barbara to Jersey Shore/At the line in the grocery store

    Pretty Much All Of Bon Jovi

    Did you really think that I was going to make a list like this without including Bon Jovi?

    I mean look, it's not easy to find something that rhymes with "Manahawkin", I get that, but with one of their signature albums simply titled "New Jersey", of course Jon and the guys get a spot here!
