Songs to wash your hands to

Put your hands together and rub them vigorously for the second edition of Songs to Wash Your Hands To: Rock and Metal Edition!

As the COVID-19 pandemic drags on, one of the most effective (and consistent) ways to protect yourself and those around you remains regularly washing your hands thoroughly, with soap. To ensure that thoroughness, experts say to suds up for at least 20 seconds.

What follows are a few gritty, grungy (or a little goofy) rock and metal songs with choruses that you can growl quietly or shout out loud to help you keep time without falling asleep at the sink. Pick one you know, or memorize one you like, and never count silently to 20 again!

System of a Down – Toxicity

Skindred – Pressure

Queens of the Stone Age – Go With The Flow

Metallica – Seek & Destroy
