Greatest Motorhead Songs

Zezerex

The Top Ten

1 Ace of Spades

Not only the best of Motorhead, but the best heavy metal track ever.

Anyways the greatest motorhead track ever! Legendary metal song, a tough challenge for any other band and it has got speed and spark in it to recharge people. This song and fade to black by Metallica are best metal songs ever

Where in the hell is ORGASMATRON! I belive orgasmatron is the best motorhead song but ace of spades comes second but this is allright

I was just thinking (it happens occasionally) Lemmy has a Dino Croc named after him - not very... him is it? A more appropriate thing would be to name a rock / biker bar in his honour and call it Lemmy Inn. Would be much better methinks. - Britgirl

2 Overkill

Nothing can really be said about this classic apart from "

! " The final solo, you know it's coming... You wait for the drums to start and... - megabreath

Scared the hell out of me first time I heard it back in the day aged 12. It was like a message from a dark alien invasion force. Aged 14 I was part of the force myself. ' At the Apollo Manchester for the bomber tour. Overkill' with fast Eddie at his best almost had them ripping the place apart. It was and is that exciting

Ahh, those drums.. Nothing like the thick drum line bringing in the deep rough Lemmy voice... Ahh MOtorhead..

You think it's over, when those awesome drums start back up again and you're ready to put the pedal to the metal!

3 The Game

Surprisingly the first motorhead song I heard, Triple H's entrance song. Still I think it's one of the best Motorhead songs and suits well for the King Of Kings, H!

Every Motorhead song is epic! Can't wait to see them again for the second time on this tour. Truly awesome band!

I maybe a huge fan o' H... But bliv me diz song is epic all the way... One of the best work of motorhead

Best of motorhead - h4di

4 Killed by Death

One of the best metal tracks off all time? Maybe. Perfect in many ways

Written as one of the 4 tracks to make up the No Remorse compilation, Lemmy peaks, this is the song that IS Motorhead. The best metal song ever.

Guitar solo is mindblowing... the laugh and the lyrics are too good! Nice song in the end

This song is my favorite and so baddass and nice RIP LEMMY

5 Iron Fist

How is this not in the top ten? It's a hell of a lot better than some of the tracks on that list.

I think this song is as fast as Ace of Spades. Just give another feeling, but as nice as Ace of Spades.

Fantastic song, my personal favourite. It's like Ace of Spades, but faster. - IronSabbathPriest

A hell of a song. This is just one of those songs that makes you forget the world and justvhave a good time

6 Bomber

It's like driving a car at full speed and then you find another gear and move up the speed some more

POWER... no other words needed to describe this song, the bassline is fantastic and it's so fast that kills

Nothing really to say other than this awesome song should be higher than 12! This should easily be in the top 5's! Please vote. - jennifersanchez

I love how powerful the guitar solo sounds. It sounds so gritty. This song is fast, awesome, and powerful.

8 Born to Raise Hell

Badass song, awesome solo and pure metal this song earned being in the top ten. My fav

This song was in Airheads

Great Classic Rock Metal mix, in which Lemmy's just voice kicks ass. Definitely my favorite song from Mötorhead.

I'm gonna put some boogie in your ear!
! Take it or leave it!

9 Orgasmatron

You simply cannot top the grimy gritty dark atmosphere of the original song. The lyrics are powerful, violent and disturbing. Lemmy's finest moment as a lyricist and proof that Motorhead could be just as interesting playing fast and slow. - joshapkin

I first heard this as a cover by Sepultura which lead me to seek out the original. To put it in simple terms, it rocks!

The name alone is awesome - gemcloben

Easily the best Motörhead song in my opinion. The dark droning riff combined with Lemmy's half-singing half-talking is something that obliterates all of the other songs.

10 Hellraiser

This song is so cool. This is is my favorite song because it has a catchy groove and still manages to stay heavy metal.

This song should be in the Top 5s, it's amazing... Catchy as hell and really, as motörhead as it gets - fidelcanojr

This song kick ass, I don't know why is in this low position

So awesome, Ozzy did it.

The Newcomers

? Damage Case

Absolutely love the riff and chorus to this song. but its obvious that Ace of Spades is going to be first - picklesdoodily

Got to know about this when I was watching a Metallica concert where they played. This song kicks ass!

This song should be higher.It should be in top 10. My favorite song on overkill album

number1

The Contenders

11 Motorhead

The 1997 Remastered version is better than the original for me. I can't explain why, but the original just seems a little out of tune for me. Maybe it's because I like the remaster so much that when I hear the original I can't help but feel that the remastered version is better.

THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. PURE ROCK N ROLL! I'M 14 AND I can't GET ENOUGH OF IT! THIS IS TOP TEN MATERIAL. THIS IS NUMBER ONE! THE GROOVE IS ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. I CAN ONLY HOPE MY BAND IS ONE DAY THIS GROOVY.

Its really short but it is a great song

OH MY GOD! Only number 15! Jesus! This is tied for #1 for me. I can see why somebody would like Ace Of Spades better, but this one is far more energized and has more meaning. Ace Of Spades, however has a better guitar solo, which adds bonus points.

12 No Class

No Class should be in the top 5's. I think this is one of the best Motorhead songs ever! A short song, but very good. I can listen to this song all day long! It's so badass. The short solo is also pretty nice. Vote for this song!

This song relates to someone you know. Who better than Lemmy to tell you that you got "No Class"!

Shut up! You talk too loud.

Simply the best MH song and surely in Top100 of Rock 'n roll songs

13 Dancing on Your Grave
14 Line in the Sand

My favourite Motorhead song. The lyrics are amazing.

The lyrics are great and I love the tempo of the song.

:O Can't believe this is #62.. It should be in the Top 10 at least.. If you haven't listened to it then please go ahead... It's an awesome song with brilliant lyrics...

Evolution is a mystery... Full of changes that no one sees... Clock makes a fool of history! Come on, you know it! Greatest Motörhead song for sure!

15 Stay Clean

I really like this song as my main and then, king of kings,ace of spades, and finally iron fist.

16 Stone Dead Forever

This is Motorhead at it's prime; powerful, fast and awesome sound settings brilliantly blends in an electric storm of rock n roll noise.

Love it so much - gemcloben

17 (We Are) The Road Crew

The Ultimate Roadie song! This is what I'm talking about right here! Ace of Spades was a Godly album and this song was the best - PsychoSandman33

Absolutely my favorite song! The other songs are great (duh) but this one has something special to it. Remember Lemmy was a roadie for Jimi Hendrix!

Awesome Song. Listened to it all the time in Brutal Legend.
Not my favourite Motorhead song but very near. Probably beaten by Bomber or Ace of Spades.

18 Sympathy for the Devil

One of my favourites! In my top 10! - Haze

19 Poison

Lyrics, melodie and the amazing Lemmy-Poison-Cry at the end are all awesome - my favorite song since now 37 years! Motörhead forever!

20 In the Name of Tragedy

YES, it's a new one. But YES, it's really one of the best ones. Come on, hear it.

Sick song, sick solo, man that song is pure rock'n'roll, you go full crazy listening on this.

Most kickass and badass heavy metal song of all time

In my darkes ours...number one

21 Evolution

Heavy songs, wild and awesome. motorhead kick ass

The best and hardest motörhead song ever, my favorite song since 2004!
This song have so much of negative energy and power, that I should to transform in a raging beast when I hear it! ;-)

22 God Was Never on Your Side

42?! Really guys! That's one of the best metal songs out there! Great lyrics great melody Just GREAT!

Excellent Motorhead I agree it should be higher. Voted for TOP 5 Motorhead song.

This has the most triumphant backing of any motorhead song. This should be top 10 in my opinion.

He was never on your side..

23 The Chase is Better Than the Catch

Ace Of Spades album was their best - this is a really cool song.

The best song off possibly my fave album.

This is in Motörhead's whole career, their greatest song. Fine tuned, focused song, that has really catchy drumbeat, magnificient basslines and lyrics ans singing, that is on their own league. Song sounds like the band really wanted to make it to be the hit, or they just happened to get everything right with it. Nevertheless, I put this even higher, that Ace Of Spades-song, cause it's really well done and have the certain mood on it.

24 Liar
25 1916

This song is really underrated. It is a wonderful tribute to our soldiers. It literally makes me feel nauseous listening to it because it's so sad. Rip soldiers, and rip Lemmy.

One of the most underrated Motorhead songs.. Great tribute to the soldiers that fought for us. - Haze

One of the most meaningful songs to military members in history. Its shameful to be this low.

R.i.p Lemmy

26 Limb from Limb

Top 15

27 In the Black

This has got to be my favorite along with in the name of tragedy. Play em both on guitar like religion. Both are newer but so perfect!

28 I Don't Believe a Word

It's different. Lemmy's voice, the theme of the song. Every little detail just makes this song absolutely epic.

Must be far more higher on the list. Lemmy's voice has become my drug.

I think this song has one of the best lyrics of all R'n'R songs ever written. Very complex, yet nicely written. Plus the awesome guitar riffing, altogether - for me this is the best song Lemmy has ever produced.

How is this at 40!? This song is just epic! easily in my top 5 Motorhead songs

29 Deaf Forever

My Personal favorite, the lyrics are about vikings, and are so badass

My personal favorite. Kinda psychedelic, just great.

Definitely my favorite - NightmareCinema

In my opinion yes this is not my favorite Motörhead song but 66?! What's wrong with you!?

30 Killers
31 (We Are) the Roadcrew
32 Sacrifice

Fun song. Even more ridiculous video.

33 Rock 'n' Roll

This song needs to be on higher rank.

One of their best. - Alpha101

Rock n' Roll will never leave ya (you'd hope).

34 Love Me Like a Reptile
35 Death or Glory

Speed, Power and Mikkey's sensational drumplay

36 Mean Machine
37 Doctor Rock

Whats this number 54, this song needs to go up to the teens at least.
The song is one of the best on the album "orgasmatron" along with the title track, and "ain't my crime", "ridin with the driver", I could go on.

Classic!

38 Thunder & Lightning

A modern day classic...ranks with the best of Motorhead's singles

39 Enter Sandman

Great cover of Metallica's Enter Sandman

Better than Metallica's, I think this because I've heard theirs way too many times.

My god I hate Metallica...

But I love Motörhead. This cover completely anihillates the original. I'd much rather listen to Lemmy's gritty sandpaper voice than James Hetfield screaming AAAH at the end of each line. The original title of this cover is actually F*** Metallica. THEY GOT THAT RIGHT. James Hetfield went hunting tigers in Siberia and missed his son's first birthday. James Hetfield is such a jerk...

Rip Lemmy, Phil Taylor, and Würzel.

40 Burner

Just a damn good song.

41 Eat the Rich

Underrated Motorhead song belongs in the top ten

First Motörhead song I ever heard, and it's remained my favorite. RIP Lemmy - Shake_n_Bake13

42 Dead Men Tell No Tales

This honestly should be higher than 38. Like come on! I think Dead Men Tell No Tales should be in the top 10's! That's just my opinion.

Hard, as nails rock like the bomber album wihich is their best in my humble opinion. You believe lemmy like he is stood over you with a luger pointed at you

43 Over the Top
44 Love Can't Buy You Money
45 Motörhead

Why is this on the list twice?

46 Jack the Ripper

It isn't the best of the best. But it is definitely in the Top Ten - dharmiisha

47 Cat Scratch Fever

One of the best covers in my opinion.

48 Till the End

One of my favourites! In my top 10! - Haze

49 Dust and Glass
50 Rock Out

Just the name says it all, whenever I hear this song, I rock out to it! I personally think it should be in the top 10's. Rock out! Vote for this awesome song!

This song rocks the world outta me... I can't stop beating an invisible guitar! VOTE THIS ONTO TOP TEN!

One of the greatest motorhead songs!

Greatest... Hard... Fast... Suppa!
