The Top Ten

Sharp Dressed Man
One of my all rime favorite rock songs. It doesn't matter why kind of music you listen to, you will like this song without a doubt.
Too badass. I personally fell cooler listening to this instead of an actual metal song or something
This song has no equal whether you listen to it in concert or recorded. It is simply great from start to finish. Hold on to your seat when it is played.
[Newest]As tops sharp dress man is real catchy and its really popular

2La Grange
one of the greatest riffs of all time


Its between this and Sharp Dressed Man.


I have heard this song all my life so la grange hell ya thats why
I like this song, but duh! The riff is 12 bar blues! Zz top didn't come CLOSE to inventing it! It's been used in literally MILLIONS of blues songs! All of ZZ tops popular songs are blues songs! They
Were used in the 50s by Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Howlin Wolf, Elvis Presley, and MANY more. This "riff" was the staple of many hits 25 years prior to ZZ top.

3Gimme All Your Lovin'
This and sharp dressed man are zz tops best, La grange is great but the lyrics are non-existant. I've also noticed in the last 5-10 years LaGrange has built a lot of hype from younger crowds


Good song at high voltage foreigner stole the show zz top were ok they did better at wembley arena.
Just a classic of texan rock
One of the best ZZ top songs ever

9Rough Boy
Original pioneering sound and lyrics, great video. This talented and great band has RANGE!
Breathtaking, the most simple ballad that ZZ Top created it to the highlights of perfection! This is I gotta listen.

The Contenders

11Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers
This should be way up... Ithink this is at least a top 5 song. Just straight forward 70's rock and roll

15Blue Jean Blues
My favorite, why? Listen in a cold dark room with a girl in your arms and then you gonna understand!
Contains such a tonefull guitar solo. Billy Gibbons really shows his blues ability. A true blues classic. Frank and Dusty compliment him so well. Easily top 10 material. An elegant beutiful song
Such a nice song to lay back and enjoy... Defenitley top 10 material. Just beautiful.

17Just Got Paid
Not just ZZ Top's best song, but one of the best rock songs ever recorded. Pure, unadulterated, bluesy genius.
Best song from them, that's for sure. Riff is one of the best ever. Just look at how it works Joe Bonamassa and everything will be clear.

20Mexican Blackbird Listen to sample

21Viva Las Vegas Listen to sample

22(Somebody Else Been) Shaking Your Tree Listen to sample

23Master of Sparks
Unbelieveable that this song is so far down the list, when it was released it got no radio play cause it sounded like"through the sparks and the flame I knew that the claim of the Master of Sparks was God" and God wasn't allowed on the Rock and roll radio stations very much in 1973
My favorite due to lyrics and beat. Just good Rock and Roll steeped in blues.

24Brown Sugar Listen to sample


26Sure Got Cold After the Rain Fell

27Hot, Blue and Righteous

28Old Man
Come on, this deserves to be in top ten. Such a graet and classic ZZ Top

29Have You Heard?

30Burger Man
Awesome song with an awesome video. Don't get me wrong the 70's period of the band (Tres Hombres, Fandango, Deguello) was the best. But even the purists cannot deny the awesomeness of their 80's output, which was perfectly encapsulated within this song.

This tune is very energy-packed! And although short in duration, it boasts a great beat, awesome vocals and a pretty neat riff!
Pretty good vocals if you ask me. I really love that song, even if it's a bit too short for a typical rock song.
