Fans of NBC’s Chuck know that the series provided a wonderful variety of some killer songs. We raided scores of Youtube “Best songs of Chuck” type compilations to see which were the most recurring mentioned. Then, we divided them up into three categories. It’s inevitable that we’ll have left off a few songs that you adore, so please do feel free to drop off the name of them in the comments, along with why that particular song resonates with you so deeply.

While we did expect to find plenty of Chuck related comments for these songs, something we did not predict was in seeing that a Chuck comment dominated at the top for almost every single pick, even on the more popular songs. It’s just another way to show the reach of this extraordinary TV show.

We’ve done you a solid and included a link to most every song listed.

Not that you could forget, but the Chuck season finale airs this Friday on NBC.
