The Top Ten

1 The Boys Are Back In Town The Boys Are Back In Town

Dis song is a great soundtrack to just about any movie, however its very underrated

The best song ever love it thin lizzy is brilliant

2 Whisky in the Jar Whisky in the Jar

I love whiskey in the jar way more than jailbreak and the boys are back in town but it was there greatest hit to most people but whiskey in the jar is my number 1 definitely

Hahaha the boys are back in town's sucks
Whiskey in the jar is a demi god song to me

4 Emerald Emerald

This is definitely my favorite, I'd want this to play if I was about to go into battle. But ok WHY ISN'T THE ROCKER ON THIS LIST? And for that matter does no one else remember Bad Reputation?

Great song! I can't believe it wasnt a hit. - fireinside96

Awesome song great drum beats from brian downey and even better guitar from scott Gorham and brian Robertson and phils lyrics are epic

The live version is the best its my favorite song of all time :D

5 Don't Believe a Word Don't Believe a Word

Not a nice sample to show this amazing song!

God that riff owns. The lyrics are brilliant as usual. This should be as well known as Boys are Back In Town.

Great rhythm and a poetic lyric. A song that touch your heart with the words but keeps you rocking with the music.

7 Still In Love With You Still In Love With You

The second greatest Thin Lizzy song behind Boys are Back in town, surprised it wasn't on the list

Consistently underrated, like so many Thin Lizzy songs, awesome song, should be top 3.

8 Cold Sweat Cold Sweat

Thin Lizzy rocks harder than any other band in this song! Why the hell isn't it higher?!

9 Cowboy Song Cowboy Song

This was always a great live track and coming of that classic "Jailbreak" album.

Ugh! If you're not familiar with Lizzy then don't vote. That's the only possible way to explain The Boys Are Back In Town being at #1.

In my opinion, their greatest song...

Absolutely lovely song; my most favorite from Thin Lizzy, closely followed by Emerald.

The Newcomers

? Chinatown Chinatown

Just listen to those guitar solos...

? Jailbreak Jailbreak

One of the Best Guitar Riffs USA

Riff is nothing but epic!

Totally rad

The Contenders

11 Angel from the Coast Angel from the Coast
12 Roisin Dubh (Black Rose): A Rock Legend Roisin Dubh (Black Rose): A Rock Legend

It's not just a song; it's a celebration of Irish music and literature. This is to rock as Vivaldi's Four Seasons is to classical music. Easily the best song written by Thin Lizzy, a beautiful song.

Anyone who voted Boys or Jailbreak is obviously not a Thin Lizzy fan.

�' guitar god Scott Gorham! For me just the best song ever made by Thin Lizzy!
