Hungry? Viral hit video Cookie Dance and our list of top food-related songs

Rapper Chip Chocolate released his music video for viral hit song Cookie Dance on Wednesday, and it has since racked up over 1.3 million views.

Featuring a giant cookie hanging around his neck Flava Flav style, girl scouts for grown-ups and copious amounts of milk, the video plays up the hip-hop lifestyle glamorised in countless rap videos. 

In honour of this achievement, we've compiled a list of the top food-related music videos. You know, because having just cookies alone wouldn't make a complete meal.

Peaches - The Presidents of the United States of America

RANDOM FACT: Peaches come from a can. They were put there by a man. It's hard to argue with that process. ANOTHER RANDOM FACT: This video also features ninjas.

Jimmy Buffett - Cheeseburger In Paradise

Anyone who has ever been on a diet has always fantasised about the cheat day. And in Jimmy Buffett's case, after "seventy days" of carrot juice and sunflower seeds, it's a big, juicy, medium-rare cheeseburger. "Heaven on earth with an onion slice." I tend to agree. 

Peanut Butter Jelly Time

The Buckwheat Boyz' original... hit would have been overlooked were it not for a flash animation featuring, possibly, the happiest banana in existence. One of the earliest Internet memes, it was featured on Family Guy. 

Blur - Coffee and TV

It's debatable what this song is about - some argue it's yearning for a simple life, while others say it's about the crutch of mind-numbing coffee and TV. Yet, most people remember this for the milk cartons.

ZZ Top - TV Dinners

For when you're feeling like a fuss-free meal. Legendary band ZZ Top sang about cheap, easy and nasty TV dinners. Who doesn't feel like having "twenty-year-old turkey in a thirty-year-old tin"? 

Weezer - Pork and Beans

I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans, Weezer declares in this anthem for individuality. The music video pokes fun at viral videos and eventually ends in a glorious crescendo of Internet memes. 

Tom Waits - Eggs and Sausage

Wonderfully evocative, jazz singer Tom Waits sings of a lonely day at a diner, filled with regret and longing. Contains a complete day's meal. 

Flaming Lips - She Don't Use Jelly

Arguably The Flaming Lips' biggest hit, the flame-headed Wayne Coyne sings of friends, or maybe acquaintances, who... don't use jelly, or tissues, or proper hair dye. Still a gloriously fun song.
