Greatest Blue Oyster Cult Songs

Zezerex

The Top TenXW

1(Don't Fear) The Reaper

I HEARD THIS SONG IN THE BACKGROUND OF "SUPERNATURAL" (SEASON 01 EPISODE-"FAITH"). I FOUND IT VERY CATCHY. WHEN I DOWNLOADED IT AND LISTENED, I DIDN'T WANT TO LISTEN ANYTHING BUT THIS SONG. THE RIFF IS HEAVENLY, THE LYRICS ARE MIND BLOWING AND SINGING IS TRULY AMAZING, RESULTING IN SOMETHING THAT'S TO ME THE MOST ADDICTIVE PIECE OF MUSIC CLASSIC AMERICAN ROCK HAS TO OFFER. IN AN EPISODE CLIMAX, HOMER SIMPSON CALLS THIS SONG AS HIS OLD FAVORITE. I AM ADDICTED TO IT AND CAN LISTEN THIS SONG FOREVER...

The way I starts out, you're like Nice stuff and then the riff in the middle goes crazy and it goes ethereal!
One of the best of all time.

This is simply the best song ever. The guitar along with the singer make a great combination. Also the lyrics are amazing.

One Of My Favorite Songs

My favorite song ever!

Metallica's version has nothing to do with this, listen to the Some Enchanted Evening live version, and the Imaginos version too, both wonderful

Four doors at the four winds bar. This song is mysterious and amazing, its the best song ever. Every version of this song rocks, but the original is the best version. A STAR!

Amazing. This song is so good, Metallica did a cover for it, the only cover song from Blue Oyster Cult, may I add. Blue Oyster Cult at there best.

"Astronomy", off of 1974's "Secret Treaties". Bring your best bud, bean-bag chair & headphones. You will be a changed human.

3Burnin' for You

Sick guitar solo's throughout! But that ending is just phenomenal! I am guaranteed to break the speed limit if I am listening to this song. And my rock goes all the way to 11 with this song!

Still much respect to Don't Fear The Reaper!

Not only is it a very catchy song with great vocals and excellent guitar work, it also may or may not have to do with the contraction of syphillis.

This Song Makes Me Happy. I Just Don't Know Why. This Song Is Very Catchy, Awesome Vocals And Great Guitar And Drum works. This song Has to be considered one of the group's best. It rocks! Musically and lyrically. And Its One Of The Songs From Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. I Just Wonder Why This Type Of Music Can't Be Made Today?

Love this song. It's catchy, it's well written, and it's full of talent. Never will get over this song. - AlteredState

Blue Oyster Cult is awesome to me because they sound slightly like the beatles and are extremely catchy.
Top 3
1. Godzilla
2. Burning For you
3. Don't fear the reaper

Blue Oyster Cult = myth
Godzilla = myth
it's simply obvious that this song would be such a masterpiece!
Blue Oyster Cult Rocks! Nothing more to say

Oh no, they say he's got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah!

History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of men... Godzilla!

5I Love the Night
6Flaming Telepaths

I can't believe this track wasn't included already! It has to be one of their top 5 songs.

How do people listen to this song without falling in love with it? How?

Best older song ever when will you ever see them play it again

7Then Came the Last Days of May

The best song in my book but they never play it live at least at the concerts that I have attended

Great early catalogue song. Where's Flaming Telepaths, Veteran of the Psychic Wars and Harvester of Eyes? Two may to choose from. Great band.

I was just listening to it. Great song. I love the whole album but it didn't get much air play on the radio.

One of my absolute all time favorite songs. The guitar is phenomenal. Buck Dharma is legendary.

Songs amazing.. Really really good song

Great song. Must be in top 10.

9Cities on Flame With Rock and Roll
10Black Blade

In my opinion black blade belongs in the top 10, but then all songs are based on someones likes, so even if you don't think so it does not make it so, A number one to some could be a 50 to another
thank you

Should be in top 10 list.. Best song.. Love the variations..

The Newcomers

?White Flags

This song is absolutely incredible, I never get tired of it. Deserves to be high up on the list!

The Contenders

117 Screaming Diz Busters

If you like hard rock and great guitar riffs and kick ass baseline, this is a must hear. One of my all time favorite rock songs

"... When Duster's dust becomes the sale. And Lucifer, the light..."

12Before the Kiss, a Recap

Its jazzy and rocks to the top. Its their best in my opinion. Love this song.

Listen close. It is so good.

13Fire of Unknown Origin

Heard this song in Supernatural Season 01 Episode 17 - Hell House.
This is an awesome song.

The original version of this song (which can be found on YouTube) isn't on any of the original albums, but is a bonus track on the CD of Agents Of Fortune. It is so much better than the more well-known version. It is really dark, and he sounds sick and crazy. - Raa396

Best of B.O.C... I have no idea why it is behind. You have to listen to this song!

14Debbie Denise
15E.T.I. (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)
16Joan Crawford

"Joan Crawford has risen from the grave". Epic lyrics and the smoothness makes this song really special.

Epic song, "no no no, no no noo" amazing singing quality, blue oyster cult is honestly the best band that gave pure american phsycedelic rock.

17The Red and the Black

Such an epic song, will always remember the time I used to listen to this on my brand new sony Walkman when I was eleven years old... ! Rock on

Guitar bass and drums work perfectly together with well placed vocal breaks.

Greatest hard rock song ever and also best BOC song.

18Harvest Moon
19Veteran of the Psychic Wars

Amazing song. The live version found on the Extraterrestrial Live album is absolutely superb. The middle section is something to behold in awe.

This song is like wings that will make you fly higher than clouds so you could look down at all the human race and feel something special. More than psychedelic. A perfect song. Maybe this should be in top 3? Or maybe that's just me...
Oh, please don't let theses shakes go on...

I listened to this song so much this last summer. I wouldn't say it's better than reaper, but it really deserves to be in the top five at least.

This easily deserves to be in the top ten, if not top five. The live version is even better than the already great studio version.
