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]Its good, but overrated

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...

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..
[Newest]I love it. should be no1

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]Songs straight up bad ass!

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]Heavy metal defined in 1 song

5Iron 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.
I think this song is as fast as Ace of Spades. Just give another feeling, but as nice as Ace of Spades.
This is my favorite Motörhead tune... BY FAR. Should at least be top 5.
[Newest]Fantastic song, my personal favourite. It's like Ace of Spades, but faster.

IronSabbathPriest


6Bomber
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
Nothing really to say other than this awesome song should be higher than 12! This should easily be in the top 5's! Please vote.

[Newest]I can not get this song out of my head, for me is the best along with 'Iron Fist'

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.
Pure metal and they never went mainstream.

gemcloben

This song is pure speed metal.
Motorhead invented speed metal.
This song shows it, with punkish speed and a raw sound, and the heaviness of heavy meta.
This is their best song!

8No 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!
This song relates to someone you know. Who better than Lemmy to tell you that you got "No Class"!
Shut up! You talk too loud.

9Orgasmatron
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!
The name alone is awesome

10Born 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.

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

[Newest]Motorhead at their best. lemmy is such a boss

gemcloben


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.
To everyone that thinks this should be higher... it's an Ozzy cover and it's not their song. Still amazing though!

13Stay Clean

14In the Name of Tragedy
YES, it's a new one. But YES, it's really one of the best ones. Come on, hear it.

15Stone 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.
Love it so much

16Dancing On Your Grave

17Poison

18God 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

19(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!

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.
