Best Grand Funk Railroad Songs

The Top Ten
1 I'm Your Captain I'm Your Captain Cover Art

It is very hard for me to pick the best Grand Funk song as I have so many, however I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home hits me in so many different ways, musically, emotionally, etc. That I pick it number 1. That band was awesome & were extremely underrated. Still listen to all of their albums frequently.

This is absolutely epic in every possible way a song can be. IT starts quiet, builds strong, has a memorable lull, ends with one of the best possible fades in music. Breathtaking!

The first time I heard it I thought what a genius of a song. My all-time favorite of any song by anybody.

I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home is and will always be Grand Funk's Masterpiece!

2 Inside Looking Out Inside Looking Out Cover Art

I remember walking into our local YMCA in the day and hearing this coming of the PA system. Somebody had it on as background music whilst doing some repair work. I was about 14 years of age and was transfixed by the power of the song. I think this was the moment I fell in love with 'Rock ' Music. It still has that effect on me now. I had never heard of this band, as they were'nt played a lotmon the UK radio stations, and I'd have to agree that they are still a very underrated band.

My favorite band. Got turned on to them around 1969. Haven"t stopped rocking" with them since. Definitely, I believe, the best band ever. You"re not gonna hear or see a better group of MUSICIANS.

My all time favorite since I bought the Paranoid album the day it was released!

My favorite. Glad to know that Mark Farner came to know Jesus in his life. We're brothers now.

3 Some Kind of Wonderful Some Kind of Wonderful Cover Art

Great song, I play it quite a bit during time outs at basketball games while announcing. People always sing along!

FINALLY a GFR list; its about figgin time. This is an amazing song, and this band is ofter over looked in the history of rock. Very underrated.

Studio version is best. Mark and Don really show their chops on vocals..

4 We're An American Band We're An American Band Cover Art

Come on you all. This is the most classic rock song ever written along with Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf.

Last night in Little Rock! Enough said

Greatest rock song ever.

This is the classic #1

5 Shinin' On Shinin' On Cover Art

Love it, such a rocking' beat. Number #1 all the way.

6 Heartbreaker Heartbreaker Cover Art

The live version of Heartbreaker is super. Endless energy!

I say it's the best song they ever did! Talk about "feeling" and "in the groove", This is surely IT! ~!

7 Sin's a Good Man's Brother Sin's a Good Man's Brother Cover Art

This one has a really solid riff. Mark Farner could really lay them down.

8 T.N.U.C. T.N.U.C. Cover Art

One of the Best Drumming solos ever! Long live Don Brewer and Grand Funk Railroad!

I agree best drummer! Great song!

9 Gimme Shelter Gimme Shelter Cover Art
10 Rock N' Roll Soul Rock N' Roll Soul Cover Art
The Contenders
11 People, Let's Stop the War
12 Bad Time

I think 'Bad time' was an unforgettable quality hit. But not a real rockhit.

13 The Loco-Motion
14 Black Licorice Black Licorice Cover Art
15 Walk Like a Man
16 Footstompin' Music
17 Paranoid

Pure metal rock at its best... Nobody could touch GFR in concert and this song is a prime example of a power trio!

18 Mr. Limousine Driver

Great song inside looking out should be at the top of every play list

19 Mean Mistreater Mean Mistreater Cover Art

The best their stuff. It's like the music of my soul. I don't even like so much this band, but this song... Really perfect.

20 Nothing Is the Same
21 Out to Get You
22 Comfort Me
23 I Come Tumblin'

I believe this song is their hardest, and most technically difficult of anything they ever did. It just completely rocks from beginning to end. It also is very funky, for a hard rock song. I wish they had included it in their set longer. I heard them play it live at Olympia Stadium in Detroit shortly before E Pluribus Funk was released. Amazing.

The BEST Rock song ever to me. Mark, Don and Mel play withsuch a grooving heavy passion. Don screaming vin the background during Mel's solo makes me go crazy with him.I don't care what anyone says or how they feel about it. Mark's voice and the harmonies are unsurpassed. "Upsetter played before it is very groovy indeed.

Best ' HARD ROCK song ever! Needs "Upsetter" to be played before it (like on the LP) so the anticipation builds just right when you hear the first sustained note in the energy barrage!

It's all about how the chemistry of these three men recorded together. There has been no other musician in the day of their music in the 70's than Don Brewer.

24 Loneliness

Ranks right up there with Closer to home, as one of the top ten songs in rock history. This is a message tune for those who will listen. The build up with the orchestra, simply outstanding!

25 Wait for Me

This is an amazing piece of music.
