Best Budgie Songs

Budgie, a 70's Welsh Classic Rock band has been so underrated and has not received the media coverage deserved. They have been very influential on some of our more successful bands who have covered their songs such as Soundgarden, Iron Maiden & Mettalica among others.

The Top Ten

1 Breadfan

By accident I came across Breadfan on you tube. How come I never heard of them. Zep. Floyd, Stones, Beatles, Yes, csny. I would say Budgie is not as good as these bands, not even close but, nobody is. They belong with the likes of rush, triumph. Still not as good as either of these two. But the song Breadfan, when putting together a list of songs that kick ass Breadfan belongs.

53 years old and thought I heard all rock. How did I miss miss band. But thanks to Dave Mustaine book, I have now found one of the best raw rock bands ever. Love um

Good melody. Good band. Good riff. Great solo. Maybe from the greatest heavy metal songs of 70's.

If you want to know how to play the perfect guitar solo, listen to this.

This is Budgie at their finest.

Tony Bourge has a unique & emotive guitar sound, which is put to full use in this song...AWESOME.

4 Melt the Ice Away

This is a good song. Almost as good as Breadfan.

5 Guts
6 Crash Course In Brain Surgery

Best driving song ever!

Amazing song! - awesomedp900

7 Who Do You Want For Your Love
8 Gunslinger
9 Wildfire
10 Homicidal Suicidal

Just listened to this - great, pulsing song! It lacks a chorus though, verse lyrics are ok but not memorable. Really good and catchy riff though: the best part of the song in my opinion
