Greatest Motley Crue Songs


The Top Ten

1 Kickstart My Heart

This song has a crap ton of adrenaline in every riff. Listening to it can cause your heart to explode in awe. Holy crap, why are you still reading this? Listen to it now.

This song is the best crue song ever it just makes you want to headbang or go nuts with a limitless energy that this song gives.

This is the anthem for the adrenaline junkies. If this doesn't make you want to get off your ass to do something wild, I don't know what will.

This song has so many catchy lyrics and amazing guitar parts that it causes my head to go nuts.

2 Home Sweet Home

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

My Favorites
7. Shout At The Devil
6. Time For A Change
5. Dr. Feelgood
4. Smokin' In The Boys Room
I think this one has the funniest music video I've ever seen.
3. Girls, Girls, Girls
That riff...
2. Kickstart My Heart
That bass riff...
1. Home Sweet Home
The solo and emotional nature of this song make it my favorite.

3 Dr. Feelgood

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. - kross2424

Great chorus and riffs. Great party song! A true song from a better era of Rock 'n' Roll!

the perfect bad boy song!

Home sweet home has great lyrics, but has a slow tempo too. this HAS to be no2

4 Girls, Girls, Girls

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

NFL cheerleaders, Sports Illustrated Swim girls, and Victoria's Secret babes.

A toptrack from motley, clear singing voice and good rhythm, but should be placed in a position number 2 on the list

Good song

5 Wild Side

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

Take a ride on the WILD SIDE! - imagesk8r6969

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.

It should be number one, as it shows the truth in L.A. in that time. - abcat

6 Shout at the Devil

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.

I hear this song on guitar hero game..
Hollywood Undead try to cover this song...
But they fail... Haha
SHOUT AT THE DEVIL... - muhammadfajri

I love Vince's voice in this. This, to me, is one of their best songs. - maarilynmaanson

7 Looks that Kill

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!

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!

First song I heard from these guys.

8 Live Wire

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. - maarilynmaanson

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!

My favourite Mötley Crüe song - EddieVanHalen2001

9 Too Young to Fall in Love

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!

My personal favorite...

The Contenders

11 Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)

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

Should be in top 5

12 Knock 'Em Dead, Kid

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

13 Smokin' in the Boys' Room

This was the first Motley Crue song I ever heard - bobbythebrony

This song is just awesome

It's fun to jam to

This is an awesome song. My dad and I made a parody of this called Stinkin’ Up The Bathroom. - railfan99

14 Primal Scream

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! - SCREAMUSIC

This song kicks butt!

15 Without You

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 - Shake_n_Bake13

I don't mind this song

16 You're All I Need

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. - maarilynmaanson

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

17 Take Me to the Top

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

Seek n Destroy Motley edition

It sounds like perfect, pooping night. LOLZ

18 Mutherf***** of the Year

Great tune

19 Ten Seconds to Love

Touch my gun but don't pull my trigger :D

20 Too Fast for Love

What made motley crue awesome,
Great riff, great beat and attitude.

21 On with the Show

Really great song why its not in top 10 or even top 15 is beyond me. Love this song.

Best album, best song. If you don't know better ask some body.

Best song ever! Better than home sweet home in my opinion.

My favorite off to fast for love

22 Anarchy In the Uk

How is this not in top 20 not my favorite but still great song

23 Piece of Your Action

Piece down at #31. what!

Great metal song.

24 Saints of Los Angeles

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.

What is this song doing down here? Seriously guys, this song should at least be top 3 -_ -

29 Red Hot

Amazingly powerful, energetic and sums up the vibe that crue had in the early 80's

30 Merry-Go-Round

Not even in the top 40. Come on people! It has a story to it. This, THIS is what these stupid teenagers should be listening to instead of "If I was your boyfriend" over and over again. This is beauty.

I love this song so much! It should be in the top 10 at least!

Merry go round and round!

31 City Boy Blues

Very good song... Best song on theatre of pain that was not a single! I personally think this is better than smoking in the boys room!

32 Afraid
33 Louder Than Hell
34 Raise Your Hands to Rock

Just a kick ass crue song.. not very well known.

35 Sumthin' for Nuthin'
36 Starry Eyes
37 She Goes Down
38 Rattlesnake Shake

Why why is at 38

39 Dancing on Glass

Most underrated song ever

40 Bastard
41 Hotter Than Hell

This is a great song. Should be here on this list somewhere - its got classic crue sound.

42 Slice of Your Pie

I love this song and the way it cheekily rips off the Beatles!

43 I'm a Liar (and That's the Truth)
44 Toast of the Town
45 Hell On High Heels

I think that randy and motley did a great job on this song and it is under played and not ever givin a chance to be considered a good motley Crüe song

46 Glitter

Motley is big, should be bigger. Everything they have done is so under rated. Long live the crue's music!

47 White Trash Circus

Fun song, give it a try!

48 Come on and Dance
49 Bitter Pill

Its great song guys! Come on

50 Sex

A masterpiece, newer song with beautiful soundtrack & singing, should be placed upper at this list

Will be suitable to release in a 12 inch maxi version, it has some special good guitar riffs.
