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 one I learned about because of Guitar Hero III or 3.

One of my favorites.

The best glam song!

2 Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Just beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. This is the best song by them ever, no doubt. It may be way different from their other rock songs, but it does give off a broken-hearted cowboy vibe, which always makes people sad but 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 that broke your heart is always a hard thing to deal with, even if they or you are with somebody else. This gives the song much more meaning, 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.

My favorite song of all time! It's probably up there for the best rock power ballad of all time. The emotion it gives me is just so nice. The solo is great too.

I've listened to this song since I was 3, maybe 4 years old.

3 Nothin' but a Good Time

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

My favorite Poison song by far...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 favorite songs, in their album Flesh and Blood. Compared to other songs, this song is the best. Actually, songs like "Talk Dirty to Me" and "Nothing But a Good Time" are also masterpieces. But at least this song should be number 3 in the list. But I enjoyed all the Poison songs so far. However, the fact I'm really worrying about is that all these songs are so much underrated.

By far their best. The song, the beat, the guitars, love it!

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 just see what songs were at the top and saw this one. This song, to me, was better than Every Rose. It was just a little haunting.

Sad song, perfect story and lyrics. It got Brett emotional when he recorded it. Worth the listen.

7 Look at What the Cat Dragged In

Their best metal song.

8 I Won't Forget You
9 I Want Action

Why is this so underrated? This song is the best after Talk Dirty to Me. I think this should be higher in the list.

10 Cry Tough

Rikki sure does rock this one with the drums! And it's just a great song about the rise to success.

The Contenders
11 Ride the Wind

A real song with a real hook, no soppy ballad, no F me suck me song. A solid rocker.

Great song by my favorite band!

12 Life Goes On
13 Your Mama Don't Dance

Better than the original.

14 Valley of Lost Souls

Their finest effort, it's a shame it was never a single.

This is a good song, it just needs to be 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)

I love this song so much!

19 Want Some, Need Some
20 Stand

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

21 Rock and Roll All Nite

What can I say, it's rock and roll at its finest.

22 Body Talk
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.

25 So Tell Me Why

Best Poison song ever!
