Greatest Motley Crue Songs

The Top Ten

1 Kickstart My Heart Kickstart My Heart Cover Art

This song is awesome. One of the best rock songs (excluding metal) ever! One of the best things about the song is the guitar work. This has to be some of the best guitar work in a rock song from the riffs which are some of the best I've heard, that awesome intro, and the solo where there are vocalizing effects coming from the guitar. You'd have to be some guitar patrician to pull something like that off. I also think their song sounds the most metal to me because of such guitar work.

Love this song. Perfect "pump you up" song to get you going. I believe this was the Crue's last solid hit. Kickstart My Heart was not that popular at the time it was released, due to the grunge scene blossoming in a very big way and this style of music was slowly fading out the door.

Now that much time has passed, this song is getting more love today than it did when it was released. Funny how things change. Really a great song that was extremely underrated at the time, but as time has proven, it deserves the #1 spot!

The energy this song produces is insane! I'm in the 7th grade and there are kids who haven't heard of any band from the 70s, 80s, 90s... nothing... I think they've gotta stop worrying about drugs and teach these kids REAL MUSIC! (Also, I asked some kid who they thought was better, Robert plant, or Justin Bieber... SHE SAID Justin Bieber! )

Smoking in the Boys room was the first music video I had seen from this band as a kid. Never saw the gender bending stuff before. Really was hard not to take your eyes off the video and was extremely engrained in my brain, but Kick Start my Heart is their best song. An adrenaline rush.

2 Home Sweet Home Home Sweet Home Cover Art

The BEST song I'VE ever heard! I don't think I've ever listened to a song as much as this one. If I could see one song live it would definitely be this one. EVERY single instrument in this song is played brilliantly and the song is so original!

OMG I LOVE Home Sweet Home who wouldnt? best song in the universe OMG

My friend loves this song. In a world when everyone loves pop music that is really cool. I got into rock hearing stuff like this and Walk This Way and AC/DC stuff along with Van Halen

Just simply the best song of all time! I personally prefer the original 1985 version, although some aspects of the 1991 remake are better

3 Dr. Feelgood Dr. Feelgood Cover Art

I love this song, I've had to listen to this song every day for the past 3 months. And I really mean every day! The guitar riff is killer, I play it all the time, the song has an awesome feel to it. One of the best hard rock songs ever written in my opinion.

This song is amazing! While I absolutely mean no of fence to Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx, it's Tommy Lee's titanic drumming and Mick Mars volcanic guitar riffs that absolutely kills this song!

This is the song that gets stuck in my head the most. But I like it. This song kicks buttocks. I love the part where the guys voice is really deep.

I like Kicksart my heart too!.
I also admit Home sweet Home is their best Ballad
Not too mention Girls, Girls, Girls the defacto Stripper anthem.
But Dr. Feel good is not only their best album, but the song is their definitive Masterpiece.

4 Girls, Girls, Girls Girls, Girls, Girls Cover Art

Price is right, sports illustrated, and victorias secret models are all gonna have a wild night. Make sure you make out with one of em.

Had a cougar grindin on me last night at a show with this playing. I'll never hear this amazing jam the same way again

Strippers or dancers on stage? Who doesn't wanna see that in a concert!?!

I can't beilve this isn't any higher this song put them on the map. This is what motley stand for sex drugs and rockandroll

5 Wild Side Wild Side Cover Art

This is not my favorite song ever, but Motley Crue is my favorite band and this is my favorite song by them. Now the weird thing is that this is acually a song I count as a christmas song because this is when I heard of it first and now it tradition to listen to it around christmas. The start is different than most of their songs and vinces tone is different too. It's very catchy and it gets you in a energetic mood. Not a violent. A, "I want to get up and run, " almost mood. The best part is when they go, "long lost is the wishing well... HOOH! "

All the tunes on this list are great and deserve to be listed. But if you're talking about no-nonsense, rattle your teeth, straight ahead rock n' roll that'll cause your kids to be born naked, then this tune is number 1. Not only a tough guitar sound but the drum sound is awesome as well. This is the song Chuck Berry prophesied about when he sang "Hail Hail Rock N' Roll". Enough said

Actually together with K.m.h But this one is so much better than dr. Feelgood or GGG and for sure better than the very overrated H.s.h.

No song puts me into an immediate state of animal laser focus like Wild Side. Looks that kill with Mick's guitar is amazing and Vince sounds fantastic on Kickstart my Heart.

6 Shout at the Devil Shout at the Devil Cover Art

epic song

Without this song there may be no hair metal genre. In many ways this is the best song ever put together. A rebellious rock anthem, conjuring flames and pentagrams. And where Twisted Sister might not take it anymore from the school principal or tough dad, the Crue leads their fans to believe there is no need to take crap from the devil himself.

Even Metallica fans like this one. It sounds like it could be on the Black Album.

I hear this song on guitar hero game..
Hollywood Undead try to cover this song...
But they fail... Haha

7 Looks that Kill Looks that Kill Cover Art

I'm a 12 year old and have been listening to the best music in the world since I was taken home from the hospital. I get a lot of trash about it at school, I will say, I'm in love with Nikki. He is so perfect. My favorite song is probably Looks that Kill or girls, girls, girls. LONG LIVE THE CRUEE!

True. I love Motley Crue because their songs are just amazing and always sound good. LONG LIVE CRUE

No other hard rock songs like this. Awesome riff and an amazing solo. It's badassed man...

No other song defines Crue like this song! One of a kind and will live on in the annals of Rock!

8 Live Wire Live Wire Cover Art

One of Motley Crue's most unique songs it is also very catchy
. Micks guitar playing is also really good on this song and Vince's voice suits the sound of the band perfectly

This is probably my favorite Crue song. This is heavy & energetic. Adrenaline fills this song to the core. It's incredible & should easily be #1.

Better set me free
'Cause I'm hot, I'm young, running free - little bit better than it used to be LONG LIVE MOTLEY CRUE - THE GLAM METAL VETERANS & ONE OF THE HOTTEST BANDS EVER!

Pure Badass Crue! The song that started it all

9 Too Young to Fall in Love Too Young to Fall in Love Cover Art

I love this song... This is, actually, one of my absolute favorites by Motley. IT WAS SO HARD TO CHOOSE BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL so GOOD!

This song is sick! Nice upbeat tempo and great beat. I love the guitar and the lyrics are pretty catchy.

Epic song, I first hear it on Grand Theft Auto vice city and ever since then I was crazy about it, very good song!

Fun fact: One of Tobymac's songs sounds similar to this one. And yet they considered themselves a Christian band LOL.

10 Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.) Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.) Cover Art

Wow. I would have guessed this as top 7. My favorite song of all time!

The song that won my Motley Crue commitment.

Should be in top 5

The Contenders

11 Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) Cover Art

My favourite Motley Crue song.

Number 1. Hands Down.

Are you seriouus? 30th place for this song? In the third place after Dr Feelgood and Home Sweet Home.

It is a great song for a wedding. That was one of my wedding songs go crue

Great song! Should be in the top ten

I don't mind this song

14 You're All I Need You're All I Need Cover Art

Love this song! It's a dirty, tongue in the cheek love song. Would love to see them do this live. It's a close 2nd to home sweet home in regards to their best ballad. Way better than without you.

This should at least be in the top 10. After learning the story behind this song then listening to the lyrics, it is just impossible to not love this song.

Great ballad... Way better than without you. Wish they would do this one live! Vince really does a great job on the vocals!

I love this song it sounds so beautiful until you see the lyrics than its even better

15 Primal Scream Primal Scream Cover Art

Should be number 10. Great song beats smokin buy a mile. Smokin' is classic song but just think Primal Scream is last song that wasn't filler like Generation Swine. Primal last song were they were kicking on all cylinders.

This song is one of the best I have heard. I was born on this kind of music and I will die with it in my heart. It has always been one of my favorite songs ever.

Definitely my favorite Motley song! The riff gets in your head, the song is catchy, and overall it's amazing!

From Motley Crue's sixth album, "Decadence" that was released in 1991.

16 Mutherf***** of the Year Mutherf***** of the Year Cover Art

Great tune

17 Knock 'Em Dead, Kid Knock 'Em Dead, Kid Cover Art

I can't believe that this song isn't in the top 10 at least, this is one of their most catchiest and best songs. It's so simple yet so full of awe.

Awesome song! Not my favorite but 1 of the best! I think the song is about me because I like to wrestle and I always think " Knock Em Dead Kid. "

This is one of their best songs

18 Saints of Los Angeles Saints of Los Angeles Cover Art

This song is so awesome, unfortunatly like many songs from The Crue it didn't get a whole lot of airplay since we have a crappy music industry that has no idea about sex, drugs and rock and roll.

Even though the Crue has gotten older this song shows that they have not gotten weaker. With Micks Heavy Guitar and Tommy's amazing technique this defines modern day rock and roll

Please be old enough to remember women's big hair before you vote. Viva la mini skirts and high heels.

This song shows how well the Crue has adapted to the modern day. They were hair metal heavy hitters, but that era ended. This song shows that they can be pure heavy metal.

19 Helter Skelter Helter Skelter Cover Art

Peace Sells... but who's buying Crue?

This deserves to be in the top 10!

Does not sing in concert
I sawd them 4 times

20 Take Me to the Top Take Me to the Top Cover Art

Wish they did more songs like this. They went too poppy later on.

This song is just the Crue! The Vince performance is so amazing, the energy, the customs and the solo guitar are also good.
