Top 10 Best Motley Crue Songs

The Top Ten
1 Kickstart My Heart

I love this song. It's the perfect "pump you up" song to get you going. I believe this was the Crue's last solid hit. Kickstart My Heart was not that popular at the time it was released, due to the grunge scene blossoming in a very big way and this style of music was slowly fading out the door.

Now that much time has passed, this song is getting more love today than it did when it was released. Funny how things change. It's really a great song that was extremely underrated at the time, but as time has proven, it deserves the #1 spot!

This song is awesome. It's one of the best rock songs ever, excluding metal. One of the best things about the song is the guitar work. This has to be some of the best guitar work in a rock song, from the riffs, which are some of the best I've heard, to that awesome intro, and the solo where there are vocalizing effects coming from the guitar. You'd have to be a guitar patrician to pull something like that off. I also think their song sounds the most metal to me because of such guitar work.

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!

My friend loves this song. In a world where everyone loves pop music, that is really cool. I got into rock hearing stuff like this and Walk This Way, along with AC/DC and Van Halen stuff.

I am amazed by how Motley Crue can make a song so beautiful yet has the same cool style to them. This has beautiful and emotional lyrics and amazing guitar use.

3 Dr. Feelgood

I love this song. I've had to listen to this song every day for the past 3 months. And I really mean every day! The guitar riff is killer. I play it all the time. The song has an awesome feel to it. One of the best hard rock songs ever written, in my opinion.

This song is amazing! While I absolutely mean no offense to Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx, it's Tommy Lee's titanic drumming and Mick Mars' volcanic guitar riffs that absolutely kill this song!

I like Kickstart My Heart too! I also admit Home Sweet Home is their best ballad. Not to mention Girls, Girls, Girls, the de facto stripper anthem. But Dr. Feelgood is not only their best album, but the song is their definitive masterpiece.

4 Girls, Girls, Girls

Price is right, Sports Illustrated, and Victoria's Secret models are all going to have a wild night. Make sure you make out with one of them.

One of the greatest guitar riffs ever written, and the song is also a perfect statement about the band itself.

Had a cougar grinding on me last night at a show with this playing. I'll never hear this amazing jam the same way again.

5 Wild Side

This is not my favorite song ever, but Motley Crue is my favorite band, and this is my favorite song by them. Now, the weird thing is that I actually count this as a Christmas song because that is when I first heard of it, and now it has become a tradition to listen to it around Christmas. The start is different than most of their songs, and Vince's tone is different too. It's very catchy and puts you in an energetic mood, not a violent one, more like, "I want to get up and run," almost. The best part is when they go, "long lost is the wishing well... HOOH!"

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 does it have 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.

6 Shout at the Devil

Without this song, there may be no hair metal genre. In many ways, this is the best song ever put together. It's 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.

Shout at the Devil rocks! I almost feel bad for the kids at school who won't listen to '80s bands. I've told them, but they won't listen. Too bad for them! I can jam out to the Crue any day!

I really don't understand how Kickstart My Heart could be number 1 since I hate the song. Shout at the Devil or Live Wire are better songs that must be there, in the golden position!

7 Live Wire

One of Motley Crue's most unique songs, it is also very catchy. Mick's guitar playing is really good on this song, and Vince's voice suits the sound of the band perfectly.

This is probably my favorite Crue song. It's heavy and energetic. Adrenaline fills this song to the core. It's incredible and should easily be #1.

First time I listened to this song was in the game Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.

8 Looks that Kill

This is one of Motley Crue's best guitar works of all time. The guitar riffs and solo are simply just epic. I like it better than the song "Girls, Girls, Girls."

This is the best song from the best album. All other comments are from kids with zero knowledge!

No other song defines Crue like this one! One of a kind and will live on in the annals of Rock!

9 Too Young to Fall in Love

Epic song. I first heard it on Grand Theft Auto Vice City, and ever since then, I was crazy about it. Very good song!

This song is sick! Nice upbeat tempo and great beat. I love the guitar, and the lyrics are pretty catchy.

TobyMac's Wake The Neighbors sounds exactly like this song.

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

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

The song that won my Motley Crue commitment.

Should be in top 5.

The Contenders
11 Without You

Got to be their second best ballad, only short of Home Sweet Home. This one is very soft, relatable, and is just right down to earth about a guy saying he can't live without this girl. We have all had that moment.

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.

12 Smokin' in the Boys' Room

This is one of their best songs! It should be in the top 5 at least. Smokin' in the Boys' Room rocks. I sing it at school all the time and get in so much trouble.

What? How isn't this in the top five? This is like one of the best! I personally like Shout at the Devil. I love Motley Crue!

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

13 You're All I Need

Love this song! It's a dirty, tongue-in-cheek love song. Would love to see them do this live. It's a close second to Home Sweet Home in regards to their best ballad. Way better than Without You.

Definitely should be in the top 10. Another great ballad from the Crue, and it is a dark one as well. It sounds very delicate, but the lyrics contrast very much, making a very unique, good song.

This should at least be in the top 10. After learning the story behind this song and then listening to the lyrics, it is just impossible not to love this song.

14 Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)

I love this song. Right now, it is in my top 5 best from the Crue and it should be. It is like a power ballad, but a party anthem mixed together, which makes it so good. Great sing-along song as well.

Are you serious? 30th place for this song? It should be in third place, after Dr. Feelgood and Home Sweet Home.

My favourite Motley Crue song.

15 Primal Scream

Should be number 10. Great song, beats Smokin' by a mile. Smokin' is a classic song, but I just think Primal Scream is the last song that wasn't filler like Generation Swine. Primal is the last song where 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!

16 Saints of Los Angeles

This song is so awesome, unfortunately 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.

This song shows how well the Crue has adapted to the modern day. They were hair metal heavy hitters, but that era ended. This song shows that they can be pure heavy metal.

Even though the Crue has gotten older, this song shows that they have not gotten weaker. With Mick's heavy guitar and Tommy's amazing technique, this defines modern-day rock and roll.

17 Mutherf***** of the Year
18 Hooligan's Holiday
19 Too Fast for Love

This one is a little bit more calm for a Crue song. Not too much guitar or screaming vocals, but the chorus does a great job. Easy to sing to.

What made Motley Crue awesome: Great riff, great beat, and attitude.

20 All In the Name Of...

Favorite Crue song of all time!

21 Take Me to the Top

Underrated song from Too Fast for Love, mostly because of how big Live Wire was, and this was their first album. But it should be heard because it is a simple, rock-hard song.

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

Wish they did more songs like this. They went too poppy later on.

22 Knock 'Em Dead, Kid

I can't believe that this song isn't in the top 10 at least. This is one of their catchiest and best songs. It's so simple yet so full of awe.

Awesome song! Not my favorite but one of the best! I think the song is about me because I like to wrestle, and I always think, "Knock 'Em Dead, Kid."

23 Anarchy In the Uk
24 Red Hot

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

25 Ten Seconds to Love

This should definitely be way higher! This is one of my favorites. Loved it live in Tacoma. I would put this at 6.
