Greatest Motorhead Songs

The Top Ten
1 Ace of Spades

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.

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

Speed metal is the best type of genre in heavy metal period, no question about it. There is a reason it is number one because this song really describes the band itself

Ace Of Spade is the best song from the GOD OF METAL 'Lemmy Kilmister'... Seriously an awesome song and deserves to be on top.

2 Overkill

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

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...

Every time no matter how many times I listen to this song I think it is finished yet it starts up again amazing how my brain tricks me.

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!

One can only think of such classic when they grow up hearing such song. Great song, makes you feel like the king of the world. Also have to admit that I have first heard it from H entrane song!

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

This is the reason why I love both heavy metal and WWE. Simply awesome song and suits well for the Game Triple H.

4 Killed by Death

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.

Great ending solo harmonised with vocals.. Gives you shivers.. Song ends and I just repeat the ending solo..
Nice intro solo as well...

The opening solo dares to say "We'll be doing just fine without Eddie Clarke thank you very much.

Come up with a better rock n' roll track title. Otherwise, vote for this one and shut your mouth!

5 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.

To everyone that thinks this should be higher... it's an Ozzy cover and it's not their song. Still amazing though!

Seriously cover or not this should be higher!

So awesome, Ozzy did it.

6 Bomber

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

7 Born to Raise Hell

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

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

It's hard not to rock out to this one. It's so catchy!

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

8 Iron Fist

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

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

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

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

9 King of Kings

Best of Motorhead. Should be on top with ace of spades and the game!

How is this not top three this is one of the best metal grunge song I have ever heard. this really deservse to be top 3 people

It's A great song but haven't been able to find which album it is on

10 Motörhead

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.

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.

This song is pure speed metal.
Motorhead invented speed metal.
This song shows it, with punkish speed and a raw sound, and the heaviness of heavy meta.
This is their best song!

Pure metal and they never went mainstream.

The Contenders
11 Orgasmatron

This song... I cannot describe how great it is. It just sounds so cool. The gritty guitar and disturbing lyrics are a combo that can never be matched. Rip Lemmy. You were the best of the best.

Bonus: Eat The Rich (Rock n' Roll, 1987)
Rip Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor. Rip Würzel. Rip Lemmy. Even though they're dead, they're in that kingdom of rock in the sky as we speak.

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.

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.

R.I.P Lemmy. R.I.P Würzel. R.I.P Phil Taylor.

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!

12 (We Are) The Road Crew

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.

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!

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

13 Dancing on Your Grave
14 Stay Clean

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

15 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.

Really 65? This has to be at least #5! This is without a doubt the most devastating song ever written.

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

16 God Was Never on Your Side

The fact that this song is at 18 is a tragedy. It should be top of the list. Greatest metal song of all time.

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

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

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

17 Damage Case

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

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

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

18 Sympathy for the Devil
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 Stone Dead Forever

Love it so much

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

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.

22 I Don't Believe a Word

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.

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.

Very good song. One of the best of Motorhead

23 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.

My favorite all time

24 The Chase is Better Than the Catch

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.

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

The best song off possibly my fave album.

25 Line in the Sand

: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!

My favourite Motorhead song. The lyrics are amazing.

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