Some that I already have:

"Daylight come and we wanna go home."
One - Metallica
Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
"Wake me up inside... save me from the nothing I've become"

Only for the night shift
Dr. Feelgood - Montley Crue

For those f-ed up nights when nothing goes right and all the psych pts come in.
Head Like a Hole - Nine Inch Nails
What a song for nurses... "head like a hole, black as your soul, I'd rather die than give you control." That pretty much sums up ICU nurses.
