Most Badass Blues and Blues Rock Songs

Could make you feel badass, or they're just badass in general.

The Top Ten

1 The Bluest Blues - Alvin Lee

Alvin Lee, a pioneer, underrated and under appreciated.
I think the Bluest Blues, the best blues song ever.

Love this song so much, what a great blues with so much feeling inside!

One of the best guitar solos ever. The tone, the way it builds to a crescendo...Amazing!

Alvin at his best with a sweet slide guitar by George Harrison

2 Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters

I'm gonna go with Britgirl on this one. This song has so much swagger. - Gg2000

No1 in my book!

Wow, this is hard for me to choose between all of them. This is one of the first ones I ever heard and fell in love with. But since then, I've heard SO many more.
Great list! - Britgirl

3 Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood
4 I'm Bad Like Jesse James - John Lee Hooker
5 (I'm Your) Hoochie Coochie Man - Muddy Waters

Especially the part when the solo comes on. Great driving song - BrianScott01

7 Stack Shot Billy - The Black Keys

Starts off slow, but then goes real badass. - BrianScott01

I like this by The Doors but I think Jeff Healey band and vocals are grittier. - Britgirl

9 Mountain Climbing - Joe Bonamassa

Great song..great musician..

10 Ball and Biscuit - The White Stripes

The Contenders

11 Numb - Gary Clark Jr.

Glad to see him getting some recognition. One hard-drivin', finger-pickin' boogiemeister.

Jimi is always the best

Turn it up to 11
