Best Saxon Songs


The Top Ten

1 Wheels of Steel

I like this one, too. It has on Grand Theft Auto Episodes from Liberty City. I like the intro of this song. I recommend it, too. - Jean666

This song should be too repetitive for a 6 minute song but It is really too short

One of the most badass riffs of all time

2 Heavy Metal Thunder

This one should be the best from the band, in my opinion. The intro with rain and thunder, the riffs and the lyrics are awesome! Check it out! - Jean666

super song

3 Crusader

I love this one and "The Eagle Has Landed." Thanks to my British Brethren for providing the BEST concert EVER in El Paso Texas while "allegedly" backing up "Triumph"

Grand, epic, powerful. Classic rocking metal track. Stylistically and lyrically, this song epitomizes true metal.

This one is epic! Highly recommended! - Jean666

Fight the good fight! This was the first Saxon song I ever heard and it's still my favourite. Can't go wrong with Crusader, both the song and the entire album! m/
