Best Blues Rock Songs


The Top Ten

1 Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Listen to him do this live at the el mocambo, he sings while playing behind his back

2 Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

I'm surprised red house isn't an option

Hendrix is shown me so man amozing things

He can play better with his teeth than most people play with hands.✌🏻🤘🏻

Purple haze should be number 1. Voodoo is more hard rock and not much blues. - lntxp01

3 Bad to the Bone - George Thorogood

Wow. I love this so much. - Britgirl

4 Still Got the Blues - Gary Moore
5 Roadhouse Blues - The Doors

Ultimate blues song, ultimate cruise song, and ultimate booze song

Really good but much better by The Jeff Healey Band. - Britgirl

the best

6 You Need Love - Muddy Waters
7 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

Definitely blues, stolen outright from "You Need Love", written by Willie Dixon and recorded by Muddy Waters.

Just because some lyrics were stolen from a blues track, doesn't make it blues. - MontyPython

@visitor: ha, I also know that this song is a brutal rip off - one of their numerous rip offs. - Metal_Treasure

I wouldn't call it blues, more of a hard rock track, but it's a great song no doubt! - MontyPython

@MontyPython - Led Zepp didn't steal only some lyrics but also the music. - Metal_Treasure

Great raw rock.

12 Crossroads - Cream

14 Since I've Been Loving You - Led Zeppelin

Probably the best blues rock song from the greatest blues rock band of all time - Bobby18

Best song of led zeppelin,there is much feeling in it.

En mi punto de vista, es la mejor canción de rock blues de la historia, tiene tanto feeling, transmite tan bien las emociones, excelente letra y de la música ni hablar, podría ser el mejor solo de la historia también.

15 Love in Vain - The Rolling Stones
16 Slow Ride - Kenny Wayne Shepherd

This song is addicting. You listen to it once and you can't stop. Awesome song by Kenny Wayne Shepherd!

17 Oh Pretty Woman - Gary Moore

Killer riff, 3 solos, Albert King is a guest musician who plays one of the solos. Find the video on YouTube to see all that. - Metal_Treasure

18 Move It on Over - George Thorogood
19 Slow Ride - Foghat
20 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

How this song didn't make on the list. Come one its blues rock. - zxm
