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

A pure classic!

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.

These are some of the best lyrics that I think they have ever written. So good.

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 Crash Course In Brain Surgery

Wicked Bass line!

Amazing song! - awesomedp900

Best driving song ever!

5 Melt the Ice Away

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

6 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
