Greatest Motorhead Songs

Zezerex

The Top TenXW

1Ace of Spades

Not only the best of Motorhead, but the best heavy metal track ever.

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

Where in the hell is ORGASMATRON! I belive orgasmatron is the best motorhead song but ace of spades comes second but this is allright

It is totally an ace track, it has been in my head all day.

2The 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

Love this song. My fave for sure.

3Overkill

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..

Rest in peace lemmy - gemcloben

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

Just killed by death...

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.

Fantastic song, my personal favourite. It's like Ace of Spades, but faster. - IronSabbathPriest

Pure aggression, such a great band - gemcloben

8Hellraiser

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 should be in the Top 5s, it's amazing... Catchy as hell and really, as motörhead as it gets - fidelcanojr

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

This song kick ass, I don't know why is in this low position

9Motorhead

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

Its really short but it is a great song

10Bomber

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. - jennifersanchez

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

The Contenders

11Orgasmatron

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!

12Stay Clean

I really like this song as my main and then, king of kings,ace of spades, and finally iron fist.

13No 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"!

14Dancing On Your Grave
15Poison

Lyrics, melodie and the amazing Lemmy-Poison-Cry at the end are all awesome - my favorite song since now 37 years! Motörhead forever!

16In the Name of Tragedy

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

Sick song, sick solo, man that song is pure rock'n'roll, you go full crazy listening on this.

18The 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.

This is in Motörhead's whole career, their greatest song. Fine tuned, focused song, that has really catchy drumbeat, magnificient basslines and lyrics ans singing, that is on their own league. Song sounds like the band really wanted to make it to be the hit, or they just happened to get everything right with it. Nevertheless, I put this even higher, that Ace Of Spades-song, cause it's really well done and have the certain mood on it.

19Line In the Sand

My favourite Motorhead song. The lyrics are amazing.

The lyrics are great and I love the tempo of the song.

: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...

20In 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!
