The Top Ten

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.
[Newest]My dad loves this song and band and I grew up with it, so I'm very fond of the song.

2Astronomy
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.
[Newest]"Astronomy", off of 1974's "Secret Treaties". Bring your best bud, bean-bag chair & headphones. You will be a changed human.

3Black 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

4Burnin' 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?
[Newest]Very strong; still like Don't Fear The Reaper the best...

5Godzilla
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!

6Then 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.
"they say the west is nice this time of year"
[Newest]One of my absolute all time favorite songs. The guitar is phenomenal. Buck Dharma is legendary.

77 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..."

8Before 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.
I want tolishan this song man

9Flaming Telepaths
I can't believe this track wasn't included already! It has to be one of their top 5 songs.
Best older song ever when will you ever see them play it again

10The 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.

The Contenders

11Take Me Away
I remember this tune having limited airplay on album rock radio over 30 years ago, then never played afterwards. MSG in the 1980's had the tune What We Need, but I'd thought that it sounded like a tune that I'd heard before. It sounds very much like Take Me Away. I think B.O.C. should get more credit for this minor hit of their.

12Shooting Shark
Songs amazing.. Really really good song
Great song. Must be in top 10.

13E.T.I. (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence)

14Harvest Moon

15Monsters
Epic! Starts with a crushing riff courtesy of Buck Dharma, later it goes into a Mos Eisely cantina-style jazz interlude, then into a catchy chorus
(with creepy vocal harmonies), and the lyrics are about gangbanging a chick on a spaceship as it blasts off into outer space.

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.

17Cities on Flame With Rock and Roll

18Veteran 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.

19Fire of Unknown Origin
Heard this song in Supernatural Season 01 Episode 17 - Hell House.
This is an awesome song.
Best of B.O.C... I have no idea why it is behind. You have to listen to this song!

36The Horsemen Arrive
What a great radio track

37Dancin' In the Ruins

If you ask all the true BOC fans which is their best track, I'm sure this will be the number one choice. It's obviously their greatest song, no doubt about it.

39Eyes on Fire

40Subhuman

41Career of Evil
One of the best song to start off an album in my opinion.

42The Great Sun Jester

43Stairway to the Stars

44The Siege and Investiture of Baron von Frankenstein's Castle at Weisseria

45Stone of Love
This should be at the top of any BOC tracks. Great guitar work from "Buck".

The best song off their first album.

47Screams
Off their first album.
