Top 10 Best Poison Songs of All Time

With Bret Michaels on lead vocals, Bobby Dall on bass, Rikki Rockett on drums, and C.C. DeVille on lead guitar, Poison rocked the airwaves and concert stages alike with their electrifying performances and catchy tunes. Their distinctive blend of hard rock, glam, and blues produced some of the most memorable anthems of their generation.

When you think of Poison, maybe you instantly start humming the infectious tune of "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," or find yourself headbanging to the vigorous beats of "Talk Dirty To Me." These are the songs that have helped solidify Poison's place in rock history, but are they the best Poison songs of all time when there are so many gems to consider, all of which encapsulate different aspects of the band's creativity and musicianship.
The Top Ten
1 Talk Dirty to Me

Rock on! This is the song I learned about from Guitar Hero III.

2 Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Just beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. This is the best song by them ever, no doubt. It may be very different from their other rock songs, but it evokes a broken-hearted cowboy vibe. This always makes people sad, yet it also gives them time to realize that you shouldn't try to break your lover's heart when you truly love them.

Seeing past lovers who broke your heart is always a hard thing to deal with, even if they or you are with someone else. This adds much more meaning to the song, which is always great for songs like this. It also means that, to me, Every Rose Has Its Thorn is Poison's most famous song because of the meaning behind it and how truly beautiful it is.

3 Nothin' but a Good Time

I personally like this so much more than Every Rose Has Its Thorn because it feels like a party anthem, whereas Every Rose Has Its Thorn is too slow for my taste. I'm not saying I dislike Every Rose Has Its Thorn. I just prefer faster and louder songs.

My favorite Poison song by far. It always makes me happy and excited, no matter what's going on in my life.

It's such a feel-good song! I turn it up every time it comes on the radio.

4 Fallen Angel

This is the best Poison song, one of my favorites on their album Flesh and Blood. Compared to other songs, this one stands out as the best. Songs like "Talk Dirty to Me" and "Nothing But a Good Time" are also masterpieces. However, this song should at least be number 3 on the list.

I have enjoyed all the Poison songs so far. However, I am really concerned that all these songs are so much underrated.

By far their best. I love the song, the beat, and the guitars!

5 Unskinny Bop

This is the one song I can play over and over without ever getting tired of it.

This is a fun, upbeat song. It makes me want to get up and dance.

6 Something to Believe In

I scrolled through the list to see what songs were at the top and noticed this one. To me, this song was better than Every Rose. It was just a little haunting.

This is a sad song with perfect story and lyrics. It made Bret Michaels emotional when he recorded it. Definitely worth the listen.

7 Look at What the Cat Dragged In
8 I Won't Forget You
9 I Want Action

Why is this song so underrated? It's the best after Talk Dirty to Me. I think it should be higher on the list.

10 Cry Tough

Rikki really rocks this one with the drums! It's a great song about rising to success.

The Contenders
11 Ride the Wind

This song has a real hook, not a soppy ballad or a crass song. It's a solid rocker.

Great song by my favorite band!

12 Life Goes On
13 Your Mama Don't Dance
14 Valley of Lost Souls

This is their finest effort. It's a shame it was never a single.

This is a good song. It just needs to be ranked higher.

15 Little Willy
16 I Hate Every Bone In Your Body But Mine
17 Until You Suffer Some (Fire and Ice)

My favorite Poison album is Native Tongue. I'm looking for more songs like this. Poison is such a great band. They've made many songs with different styles.

18 Flesh & Blood (Sacrifice)
19 Stand

Great lyrics, great singing, which includes a Los Angeles choir.

20 Want Some, Need Some
21 Body Talk
22 Rock and Roll All Nite

What can I say? It's rock and roll at its finest.

23 Look but You Can't Touch
24 Life Loves a Tragedy

Go back and listen to this song three times, and you will be hooked.
