The Top Ten

Kickstart My Heart
This song has a crap ton of adrenaline in every riff. Listening to it can cause your heart to explode in awe. Holy crap, why are you still reading this? Listen to it now.
This song is the best crue song ever it just makes you want to headbang or go nuts with a limitless energy that this song gives.
This is the anthem for the adrenaline junkies. If this doesn't make you want to get off your ass to do something wild, I don't know what will.
[Newest]Best. Rock. Song. Ever.

2Dr. Feelgood
This is the song that gets stuck in my head the most. But I like it. This song kicks buttocks. I love the part where the guys voice is really deep.


Great chorus and riffs. Great party song! A true song from a better era of Rock 'n' Roll!
the perfect bad boy song!
[Newest]This song makes me FEELGOOD!

3Home Sweet Home
The BEST song I'VE ever heard! I don't think I've ever listened to a song as much as this one. If I could see one song live it would definitely be this one. EVERY single instrument in this song is played brilliantly and the song is so original!
OMG I LOVE Home Sweet Home who wouldnt? best song in the universe OMG
My friend loves this song. In a world when everyone loves pop music that is really cool. I got into rock hearing stuff like this and Walk This Way and AC/DC stuff along with Van Halen
[Newest]Best motley song micks best guitar solo too saw them live this was the best and last song they played

4Girls, Girls, Girls
A toptrack from motley, clear singing voice and good rhythm, but should be placed in a position number 2 on the list
Strippers or dancers on stage? Who doesn't wanna see that in a concert!?!
Stands for everything that the Crue were about! Brilliant track.

5Wild Side
All the tunes on this list are great and deserve to be listed. But if you're talking about no-nonsense, rattle your teeth, straight ahead rock n' roll that'll cause your kids to be born naked, then this tune is number 1. Not only a tough guitar sound but the drum sound is awesome as well. This is the song Chuck Berry prophesied about when he sang "Hail Hail Rock N' Roll". Enough said
Take a ride on the WILD SIDE!


This is not my favorite song ever, but Motley Crue is my favorite band and this is my favorite song by them. Now the weird thing is that this is acually a song I count as a christmas song because this is when I heard of it first and now it tradition to listen to it around christmas. The start is different than most of their songs and vinces tone is different too. It's very catchy and it gets you in a energetic mood. Not a violent. A, "i want to get up and run, " almost mood. The best part is when they go, "long lost is the wishing well... HOOH! "

6Shout at the Devil
epic song
I hear this song on guitar hero game..
Hollywood Undead try to cover this song...
But they fail... Hahaha


No problem I think Motley Crue Kicks butt
[Newest]I thought this would be number 1

7Too Young to Fall In Love
I love this song... This is, actually, one of my absolute favorites by Motley. IT WAS SO HARD TO CHOOSE BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL so GOOD!
This song is sick! Nice upbeat tempo and great beat. I love the guitar and the lyrics are pretty catchy.
Epic song, I first hear it on Grand Theft Auto vice city and ever since then I was crazy about it, very good song!
[Newest]This song is full of hard core passion

8Looks That Kill
MÖTLEY CRÜE IS THE BEST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL IS THE BEST ALBUM AND LOOKS THAT KILL IS THE BEST SONG! Hey I'm 9 and I can tell you Tommy Lee's least favorite Crüe album, Too Fast For Love. Too Fast For Love is my 2nd favorite. I think this should be num 1 but that just me. Also I know everything you need to know about 60s - 80s rock. Hey I've been listening to this music for 1 year! Crazy right? I wish I was Vince Neil. :( I was also born in the wrong time because today's music stinks. GO MÖTLEY CRÜE!
I'm a 12 year old and have been listening to the best music in the world since I was taken home from the hospital. I get a lot of trash about it at school, I will say, I'm in love with Nikki. He is so perfect. My favorite song is probably Looks that Kill or girls, girls, girls. LONG LIVE THE CRUEE!
No other hard rock songs like this. Awesome riff and an amazing solo. It's badassed man...
[Newest]No other song defines Crue like this song! One of a kind and will live on in the annals of Rock!

9Live Wire
Better set me free
'Cause I'm hot, I'm young, running free - little bit better than it used to be LONG LIVE MOTLEY CRUE - THE GLAM METAL VETERANS & ONE OF THE HOTTEST BANDS EVER!
One of Motley Crue's most unique songs it is also very catchy
. Micks guitar playing is also really good on this song and Vince's voice suits the sound of the band perfectly
One hell of a badass song

10Saints of Los Angeles
This song is so awesome, unfortunatly like many songs from The Crue it didn't get a whole lot of airplay since we have a crappy music industry that has no idea about sex, drugs and rock and roll.
Even though the Crue has gotten older this song shows that they have not gotten weaker. With Micks Heavy Guitar and Tommy's amazing technique this defines modern day rock and roll
Please be old enough to remember women's big hair before you vote. Viva la mini skirts and high heels.
[Newest]Most awesome song! Why is it not in the top 5?

The Contenders

11Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)
Explains how I feel sometimes haha
Are you seriouus? 30th place for this song? In the third place after Dr Feelgood and Home Sweet Home.
About the 3rd greatest song by motley and the best breakup song out there

12Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)
Great song! Definitely my favorite, shouldn't be 16 ���"needs 2 go 👆
It's the same old, same old situation.
It's the same old, same old Stupid list...
Wow. I would have guessed this as top 7. My favorite song of all time!

13Smokin' In the Boys' Room
This was the first Motley Crue song I ever heard


One of their best songs
What? How isn't this in the top five? This is like one of the best! I personally like shout at the devil. I Love MOTYLEY CRUE!

14You're All I Need
Love this song! It's a dirty, tongue in the cheek love song. Would love to see them do this live. It's a close 2nd to home sweet home in regards to their best ballad. Way better than without you.
Great ballad... Way better than without you. Wish they would do this one live! Vince really does a great job on the vocals!
This should be in the top 10. Ballad of all time.. Very creatively written

15Primal Scream
Should be number 10. Great song beats smokin buy a mile. Smokin' is classic song but just think Primal Scream is last song that wasn't filler like Generation Swine. Primal last song were they were kicking on all cylinders.
This song is one of the best I have heard. I was born on this kind of music and I will die with it in my heart. It has always been one of my favorite songs ever.
Definitely my favorite Motley song! The riff gets in your head, the song is catchy, and overall it's amazing!


16Knock 'Em Dead, Kid
Awesome song! Not my favorite but 1 of the best! I think the song is about me because I like to wrestle and I always think " Knock Em Dead Kid. "
I can't believe that this song isn't in the top 10 at least, this is one of their most catchiest and best songs. It's so simple yet so full of awe.
This is one of their best songs

17Without You
It is a great song for a wedding. That was one of my wedding songs go crue
Great song! Should be in the top ten


I don't mind this song

18Too Fast for Love
What made motley crue awesome,
Great riff, great beat and attitude.

19Mutherf***** of the Year


21Ten Seconds to Love
Touch my gun but don't pull my trigger :D

22I'm a Liar (and That's the Truth)

23Take Me to the Top
This song is just the Crue! The Vince performance is so amazing, the energy, the customs and the solo guitar are also good.

24Toast of the Town

25On With the Show
Really great song why its not in top 10 or even top 15 is beyond me. Love this song.
Best album, best song. If you don't know better ask some body.
Best song ever! Better than home sweet home in my opinion.

26All In the Name Of...
Favorite Crue song of all time!

27Sticky Sweet

28Hooligan's Holiday
Great tune..only nonVince lead in my top ten,

Not even in the top 40. Come on people! It has a story to it. This, THIS is what these stupid teenagers should be listening to instead of "If I was your boyfriend" over and over again. This is beauty.
Merry go round and round!
I love this song so much! It should be in the top 10 at least!

Motley is big, should be bigger. Everything they have done is so under rated. Long live the crue's music!

31Hell On High Heels
I think that randy and motley did a great job on this song and it is under played and not ever givin a chance to be considered a good motley Crüe song
Not a Popular Song but Still a Classic.

32The Animal In Me
It's the perfect song, the perfect mix between a slow song and a fast one, like Sweet Child o' Mine, or UnforgivenII.

33Piece of Your Action
Piece down at #31. what!

34Raise Your Hands to Rock
Just a kick ass crue song.. not very well known.

35Dancing On Glass
Most underrated song ever

36If I Die Tomorrow
I LOVE this song. It has so great bass line, and the lyrics are beautiful too.
This song is one of the best songs I have heard. The Crüe have done it again
This song should at least be in SECOND PLACE below Girls, Girls, Girls

37Red Hot
Amazingly powerful, energetic and sums up the vibe that crue had in the early 80's

38Rattlesnake Shake

39Sinners & Saints


41Slice of Your Pie

42White Trash Circus
Fun song, give it a try!

43Face Down In the Dirt
After 8 years of pause between studio albums we get Saints of Los Angeles. And guess what? The first two tracks are gapless and create the strongest impressions on me. I wonder how come the song is not even on the list. It may not be number 1, after all '80s were the peak. It deserves a place somewhere in Top 25.

44Bitter Pill
Its great song guys! Come on

A masterpiece, newer song with beautiful soundtrack & singing, should be placed upper at this list

46City Boy Blues
Very good song... Best song on theatre of pain that was not a single! I personally think this is better than smoking in the boys room!

47Come On and Dance

48Public Enemy #1

I know this isn't one of their best songs, but there was always something about the verses that just kept me coming back and back and back and back...

50Louder Than Hell

51Sumthin' for Nuthin'

52Bad Boy Boogie

53Tonight (We Need a Lover)

54Hotter Than Hell

55Starry Eyes

56Sick Love Song

57All Bad Things
This is one song I like that has come out somewhat recently, Why isn't it played more often?! I love this song, Why are radio stations reluctant to play good music from the #1 hair metal band?
Underrated because its only a couple months old but for 2015 it sounds 80's which rocks
Underrated for 2015 it sounds like an unheard 80's track which is so cool

58Jailhouse Rock
Made and elvis classic better!
Great live performance better than elvis


59Uncle Jack

60Down at the Whisky

61Find Myself

62Keep Your Eye On the Money

63Nobody Knows What It's Like to Be Lonely
First official recorded song never made into the first album Too Fast For love...

64Goin' Out Swingin'

Great rocking song love MOTLEY!

66Anarchy In the Uk
How is this not in top 20 not my favorite but still great song

67Five Years Dead
Awesome bass, guitar and drums in it! Vastly underrated

68She Goes Down

69Helter Skelter
This deserves to be in the top 10!
