The Top Ten

1
Ace of Spades
It was just only 2 minutes, but this song is the greatest one for Motorhead. I think The Game should be number two...

09ShamsulBahriel

Not only the best of Motorhead, but the best heavy metal track ever.
Sadly all the ones that like one motorhead song (this one and not the band) will choose, BUT IT IS THEIR BEST SONG. Plus their NOT HEAVY METAL THEIR ROCK 'N' ROLL AND LEMMY WOULD TELL YOU. THEY ARE ROCK 'N' ROLL AND ALWAYS WILL BE. ALTHOUGH THEY DO HAVE SOME HEAVY SONGS, BUT THIS IS NOT ON OF THEIR VERY HEAVY SONGS, UNLIKE SOME OTHERS THAT REALLY ARE QUITE HEAVY.
[Newest]Anyways the greatest motorhead track ever! Legendary metal song, a tough challenge for any other band and it has got speed and spark in it to recharge people. This song and fade to black by Metallica are best metal songs ever

2Overkill
Nothing can really be said about this classic apart from "

! " The final solo, you know it's coming... You wait for the drums to start and...

megabreath

Scared the hell out of me first time I heard it back in the day aged 12. It was like a message from a dark alien invasion force. Aged 14 I was part of the force myself. ' At the Apollo Manchester for the bomber tour. Overkill' with fast Eddie at his best almost had them ripping the place apart. It was and is that exciting
Ahh, those drums.. Nothing like the thick drum line bringing in the deep rough Lemmy voice... Ahh MOtorhead..

3The Game
Surprisingly the first motorhead song I heard, Triple H's entrance song. Still I think it's one of the best Motorhead songs and suits well for the King Of Kings, H!
Every Motorhead song is epic! Can't wait to see them again for the second time on this tour. Truly awesome band!
I maybe a huge fan o' H... But bliv me diz song is epic all the way... One of the best work of motorhead
[Newest]Really cool my personal favourite

4Killed By Death
One of the best metal tracks off all time? Maybe. Perfect in many ways
Written as one of the 4 tracks to make up the No Remorse compilation, Lemmy peaks, this is the song that IS Motorhead. The best metal song ever.
Guitar solo is mindblowing... the laugh and the lyrics are too good! Nice song in the end
[Newest]Because I ain't gonna be easy killed by death


5Bomber
It's like driving a car at full speed and then you find another gear and move up the speed some more
POWER... no other words needed to describe this song, the bassline is fantastic and it's so fast that kills
Such a powerful bass line, fast drum rhythm and amazing voice from lemmy. they make amazing musical fusion.
[Newest]I can not get this song out of my head, for me is the best along with 'Iron Fist'

JrG


6No Class
No Class should be in the top 5's. I think this is one of the best Motorhead songs ever! A short song, but very good. I can listen to this song all day long! It's so badass. The short solo is also pretty nice. Vote for this song!
Shut up! You talk too loud.
This song relates to someone you know. Who better than Lemmy to tell you that you got "No Class"!

7Motorhead
THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. PURE ROCK N ROLL! I'M 14 AND I can't GET ENOUGH OF IT! THIS IS TOP TEN MATERIAL. THIS IS NUMBER ONE! THE GROOVE IS ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. I CAN ONLY HOPE MY BAND IS ONE DAY THIS GROOVY.

8Born to Raise Hell
Badass song, awesome solo and pure metal this song earned being in the top ten. My fav
Great Classic Rock Metal mix, in which Lemmy's just voice kicks ass. Definitely my favorite song from Mötorhead.

9Iron Fist
How is this not in the top ten? It's a hell of a lot better than some of the tracks on that list.
This is my favorite Motörhead tune... BY FAR. Should at least be top 5.
My favorite song, by far. Just awesomeness!
[Newest]What the hell, this song should be top 5

10Orgasmatron
You simply cannot top the grimy gritty dark atmosphere of the original song. The lyrics are powerful, violent and disturbing. Lemmy's finest moment as a lyricist and proof that Motorhead could be just as interesting playing fast and slow.

joshapkin

I first heard this as a cover by Sepultura which lead me to seek out the original. To put it in simple terms, it rocks!
Awesome song! One of my favourites
1) Ace Of Spades
2) Overkill
3) Killed By Death
4) Orgasmatron
5) Born To Raise Hell
6) Built For Speed
7) Iron Fist
8) (We Are) The Road Crew
9) Damage Case
10) Motorhead

The Contenders

11King of Kings
Pure and powerful Motorhead at its finest. nothing better.
OMG. It's just the perfect lyrics for the perfect wrestler! TRIPLE HHH! MOTORHEAD RULES!

joaocarvalho

How is this not top three this is one of the best metal grunge song I have ever heard. this really deservse to be top 3 people
[Newest]Best of Motorhead. Should be on top with ace of spades and the game!

12Hellraiser
This song should be in the Top 5s, it's amazing... Catchy as hell and really, as motörhead as it gets

fidelcanojr

This song is so cool. This is is my favorite song because it has a catchy groove and still manages to stay heavy metal.
This song kick ass, I don't know why is in this low position

13Stone Dead Forever
This is Motorhead at it's prime; powerful, fast and awesome sound settings brilliantly blends in an electric storm of rock n roll noise.

14Stay Clean

15Dancing On Your Grave

16God Was Never On Your Side
42?! Really guys! That's one of the best metal songs out there! Great lyrics great melody Just GREAT!
This is the best inspiring song I ever listened
Awesome, Historic for me

17In the Name of Tragedy
YES, it's a new one. But YES, it's really one of the best ones. Come on, hear it.

18Poison

19(We Are) The Road Crew
The Ultimate Roadie song! This is what I'm talking about right here! Ace of Spades was a Godly album and this song was the best

PsychoSandman33

Awesome Song. Listened to it all the time in Brutal Legend.
Not my favourite Motorhead song but very near. Probably beaten by Bomber or Ace of Spades.
Absolutely my favorite song! The other songs are great (duh) but this one has something special to it. Remember Lemmy was a roadie for Jimi Hendrix!

20The Chase Is Better Than the Catch
Ace Of Spades album was their best - this is a really cool song.
The best song off possibly my fave album.

21(Don't Need) Religion
One of the greatest motorhead riffs ever made, along with BOMBER
One of the best riffs for sure! :-)
Great Song! Riff kicks ass! Very carchy song with great lyrics!

22Iron Horse
Never gets old. This is their signature song. It embodies their entire image. What the hell is this doing all the way down here? Bring it up to number one.
Always been my favourite head tune. Has a visceral beauty about it lemmie and Eddie always capable of as first class musicians and masters of their craft but they sort of sacrificed the craft for the thrash along the way
This is the song that I listen to when I go for a long bike ride... Freakingly awesome!

23Sacrifice
Fun song. Even more ridiculous video.

24In the Black
This has got to be my favorite along with in the name of tragedy. Play em both on guitar like religion. Both are newer but so perfect!

25Going to Brazil
It's energetic, it's fun. Makes me want to go to Rio immediately. Besides, it has a vicious dirty rock and roll riff.

26Rock Out
Just the name says it all, whenever I hear this song, I rock out to it! I personally think it should be in the top 10's. Rock out! Vote for this awesome song!
This song rocks the world outta me... I can't stop beating an invisible guitar! VOTE THIS ONTO TOP TEN!
One of the greatest motorhead songs!

27I Got Mine
One of my favourites. A very powerful and groovy song. Creating during the Roberson's period, the blues touch is also very present.
Simple yet effective. Great song. What could have happened if Robbo sobered up?

28Damage Case
Absolutely love the riff and chorus to this song. but its obvious that Ace of Spades is going to be first

picklesdoodily

Got to know about this when I was watching a Metallica concert where they played. This song kicks ass!

29Dead Men Tell No Tales
This honestly should be higher than 38. Like come on! I think Dead Men Tell No Tales should be in the top 10's! That's just my opinion.
Hard, as nails rock like the bomber album wihich is their best in my humble opinion. You believe lemmy like he is stood over you with a luger pointed at you

30Jack the Ripper
It isn't the best of the best. But it is definitely in the Top Ten

dharmiisha


31Over the Top

32Liar

33Eat the Rich

34Love Me Like a Reptile

35Love Can't Buy You Money

36Broken

37I Don't Believe a Word
It's different. Lemmy's voice, the theme of the song. Every little detail just makes this song absolutely epic.
I think this song has one of the best lyrics of all R'n'R songs ever written. Very complex, yet nicely written. Plus the awesome guitar riffing, altogether - for me this is the best song Lemmy has ever produced.
Must be far more higher on the list. Lemmy's voice has become my drug.
[Newest]Higher! This is epic

38Evolution
The best and hardest motörhead song ever, my favorite song since 2004!
This song have so much of negative energy and power, that I should to transform in a raging beast when I hear it! ;-)
Heavy songs, wild and awesome. motorhead kick ass

39Sweet Revenge
Sweet Revenge! Hell of a song! This should be in the top 10's in my opinion! Motorhead should play this song! I would love to hear them play this song soon! Vote!

johnpaularguelles

Nothing' really to say other than Sweet Revenge is one of my all-time favorite Motorhead songs.
I think this song should be higher than 77. Probably in the top 20's. It's one of my favorite Motorhead songs of all-time.

40Just 'Cos You Got the Power
Quite a good song, I don't care how long it is.

IronSabbathPriest


41Dust and Glass

42Over Your Shoulder

43Rock 'n' Roll
This song needs to be on higher rank.
Rock n' Roll will never leave ya (you'd hope).

44The Hammer

45In the Year of the Wolf

46Shine

47Shut It Down

48Built for Speed

49Love Me Forever
So awesome! Kilmister's voice in this song is just incredible! Should be higher
First and best song I've ever heard! Love his unbelievable voice in it!

50Tear Ya Down

51Lawman
Lawman at 73? Damn... Hugely underrated song but it's an awesome song to listen to! It's actually one of my favorite Motorhead songs of all-time! Please vote.
Honestly, this song should be around the top 20. In my opinion, it's one of the best Motorhead songs ever! It's also very underrated! They hardly play it live. It still is a very good song though.

johnpaularguelles


52Emergency
"999 emergency! " This really deserves to be in the top ten in my opinion. Its very short. Its very quick, but it gets the job done.

53Back at the Funny Farm
I can't believe this song is so low! It's such a pacey fast fun track, it should be in the top ten with We Are the Road Crew, Orgasmatron, Just because You Got the Power, Marching Off to War and Killed by Death
Hey folks... you 're not really fans... they have fantastic songs... but this here is the craziest, most perfect, power fuller heavy-track worldwide.
"let the pig out"

54The One to Sing the Blues
This just a classic motorhead song!

55Doctor Rock
Whats this number 54, this song needs to go up to the teens at least.
The song is one of the best on the album "orgasmatron" along with the title track, and "ain't my crime", "ridin with the driver", I could go on.

56All the Aces
55?! This song is underrated, but it's an awesome song regardless! I love pretty much everything about this song. All The Aces in my opinion should be at least in the top 20's.
All The Aces should be higher. I think it's one of Motorhead's best songs in my opinion. I think it should be in the top 20's! Please vote.

57God Save the Queen
To be honest, this one is one of the best songs from one of Motorhead's newer albums. I like both versions of this song. Both The Sex Pistol's one and this one. Let's bring this up! It definitely should be higher than 82! In my opinion, I would rank it in the top 20's.
This the 1st motorhead song I heard n it was good vote dis 2 be the top 3 it is the best motorhead song

58R.A.M.O.N.E.S.
Fantastic tribute to a fantastic band, from a decent band.

59Line In the Sand
Evolution is a mystery... Full of changes that no one sees... Clock makes a fool of history! Come on, you know it! Greatest Motörhead song for sure!
My favourite Motorhead song. The lyrics are amazing.
The lyrics are great and I love the tempo of the song.

60Deaf Forever
My Personal favorite, the lyrics are about vikings, and are so badass

61Metropolis

62Too Late Too Late

63I Ain't No Nice Guy
I think this song proves that Motörhead could tackle any genre of rock and roll they want, straying from their usual heaviness and settling with a ballad type-song. Also, tear jerking lyrics can't hurt. Motörhead forever!
What is this doing here? This is with "1916" my all time favorite song with Motörhead! This should at least be top 20! When you put Lemmy, Ozzy AND Slash in the same room it can't be other than magic!

64One More F****** Time
not a metal track though but a great rest to brokens, Lemmy's voice just so rough & yet so tender just take to the next level.. beautiful lyrics & beautiful sound

somdev.banerjee


65Ain't My Crime

66Please Don't Touch
How could this song not be on the list before now? Great song. Love it!

67Cat Scratch Fever
One of the best covers in my opinion.

681916
One of the most meaningful songs to military members in history. Its shameful to be this low.
Needs to be much higher than it is right now!

69Snaggletooth

70The Wolf

71Louie Louie
It's really cool, and easy song, it should be in first 10 top ;). I'd really like this song, and I know that from original it is made by Iggy Pop, but Motorhead version is much, much better!

72America

73Heartbreaker
This is one of the best tracks what you people have stopped listening to latest motorhead albums

74Bad Woman

75Whorehouse Blues
just as the name suggests, again not a metal song but it has its own feel... something beyond Motorhead in all we don't want the crazy Metal to ever end but gives a feel how much it means to slow down & pick up the acoustics for a change...

somdev.banerjee


76Locomotive

77Keep Us On the Road

78Ridin' With the Driver

79Traitor

80Sharpshooter

81Jailbait

82Talking Head

83Instro

84Lemmy Goes to the Pub
Seriously? This isn't in the top 100? I know it's an alternate version of Heart of Stone, but come on, this is better than HoS in my opinion. Just an awesome rock song.

85Bite the Bullet

86The Thousand Names of God

87Dogs of War

88Claw

89Whiplash
Phenominal cover of Metallica's classic, needs to be higher up on this list!

90Enter Sandman

91Red Raw

92Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye

93Loser

94Dogs

95Stone Deaf In the USA

96Devils
Final track from bastards (an underrated album itself). Very underrated song (along with a lot of others such as no remorse, all for you, out of the sun, and bang to rights

97Death or Glory
Speed, Power and Mikkey's sensational drumplay

98Sword of Glory
The best song since killed by death
Best song ever from motorhead

99Mean Machine

100Christine
