The Top Ten

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...


Not only the best of Motorhead, but the best heavy metal track ever.
Where in the hell is ORGASMATRON! I belive orgasmatron is the best motorhead song but ace of spades comes second but this is allright
Well the. this songs amazing one of my favorites by my third favorite heavy Metal Singers ever this songs awesome

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..

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
This is the reason why I love both heavy metal and WWE. Simply awesome song and suits well for the Game Triple H.

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
More comments about Killed By DeathListen to sample

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.

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"!

7Born 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.
Listen to sample

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.


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

9King of Kings

10Iron 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!

19The Chase Is Better Than the Catch
Ace Of Spades album was their best - this is a really cool song.
Listen to sample

20(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!
Listen to sample

21(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


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!
Listen to sample

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!
Listen to sample

23Sacrifice Listen to sample

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!
Listen to sample

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.
Listen to sample

26I 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?
Listen to sample

27Rock 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!
More comments about Rock OutListen to sample

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


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

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
Listen to sample

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

37I Don't Believe a Word
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.
It's different. Lemmy's voice, the theme of the song. Every little detail just makes this song absolutely epic.
Must be far more higher on the list. Lemmy's voice has become my drug.
Higher! This is epic

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

39Over Your Shoulder Listen to sample

40Sweet 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!


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.

50Tear Ya Down Listen to sample

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.


Listen to sample

"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.
Listen to sample

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"
Listen to sample

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

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.
Listen to sample

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.
Listen to sample

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
Listen to sample

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!
:O Can't believe this is #62.. It should be in the Top 10 at least.. If you haven't listened to it then please go ahead... It's an awesome song with brilliant lyrics...

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!
Listen to sample

72America Listen to sample

73I 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!
Listen to sample

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

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...
