Greatest Motorhead Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 (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.

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

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

My personal favorite. Kinda psychedelic, just great.

This song is one of my favourites. The riff is amazing and the lyrics are so badass. - IronSabbathPriest

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

28 Enter Sandman

Great cover of Metallica's Enter Sandman

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.

29 Heroes

The David Bowie cover is one of the most emotional songs I’ve ever heard in my life. - CostcoHotDogs

30 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!

31 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
