Greatest Motorhead Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 (We Are) The Road Crew (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

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!

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.

22 I Don't Believe a Word I 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.

Must be far more higher on the list. Lemmy's voice has become my drug.

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.

This song is epic! should be at least top 15

One of the most underrated Motorhead songs.. Great tribute to the soldiers that fought for us. - Haze

One of the most meaningful songs to military members in history. Its shameful to be this low.

Really 65? This has to be at least #5! This is without a doubt the most devastating song ever written.

Best lyrics ever...

26 The Chase Is Better Than the Catch The 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.

27 In the Black In 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!

28 Eat the Rich Eat the Rich

Underrated Motorhead song belongs in the top ten

First Motörhead song I ever heard, and it's remained my favorite. RIP Lemmy - Shake_n_Bake13

29 Killers Killers
30 Sacrifice Sacrifice

Fun song. Even more ridiculous video.

31 Sympathy for the Devil Sympathy for the Devil V 1 Comment
32 Death or Glory Death or Glory

Speed, Power and Mikkey's sensational drumplay

33 Mean Machine Mean Machine
34 Rock 'n' Roll Rock 'n' Roll

This song needs to be on higher rank.

38 I Got Mine I Got Mine

Simple yet effective. Great song. What could have happened if Robbo sobered up?

One of my favourites. A very powerful and groovy song. Creating during the Roberson's period, the blues touch is also very present.

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.
