Greatest ZZ Top Songs

The Top Ten
1 Sharp Dressed Man

There is no competition. Sharp Dressed Man is way better than La Grange. La Grange has the guitar, but Sharp Dressed Man fantastic lyrics and the beat and the guitar. Hands down, my vote goes to Sharp Dressed Man!

This song has no equal whether you listen to it in concert or recorded. It is simply great from start to finish. Hold on to your seat when it is played.

One of my all rime favorite rock songs. It doesn't matter why kind of music you listen to, you will like this song without a doubt.

Love this song so much. Without a doubt their best song. The only song that can possibly rival this one for ZZ Top is La Grange but it shouldn't be #1.

2 La Grange

ZZ Top's best song. If any list has this less than #1 they're probably of the MTV or later crowd. MTV was entertaining, but it severely injured music forever. Then the TV shows (Simon Cowell) nailed the coffin shut.

I like this song, but duh! The riff is 12 bar blues! Zz top didn't come CLOSE to inventing it! It's been used in literally MILLIONS of blues songs! All of ZZ tops popular songs are blues songs! They
Were used in the 50s by Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Howlin Wolf, Elvis Presley, and MANY more. This "riff" was the staple of many hits 25 years prior to ZZ top.

When I was about eight my brother swapped a rubber ball or something with another kid for this single (with Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers on the other side). Didn't know what it was about until about thirty years later.

The song which everybody can play and make a big fat solo on it! The best of them!

3 Gimme All Your Lovin'

Gimme All Your Lovin is ZZ Top signature song so why it isn't 1st. My first ZZ Top song I ever heard. It's so cool I heard it in my dreams a couple of times

This and sharp dressed man are zz tops best, La grange is great but the lyrics are non-existant. I've also noticed in the last 5-10 years LaGrange has built a lot of hype from younger crowds

Good song at high voltage foreigner stole the show zz top were ok they did better at wembley arena.

Definitely top 5 of my favorites!

4 Tush

Everyone's heard it's everywhere!

This is there best

5 Legs

ZZ Top have so many great video clips - this one is the best of the lot! Love the sequenced riff!

The greatest ZZ Top song... and I am from the northeast. I actually like southern rock, though.

Great beautiful lady song...

This is just one great song.

6 Cheap Sunglasses

Love this song. Always makes me feel cooler when I'm rocking my cheap sunglasses when I'm driving.

Wonderfully crafted solo, great drum work! Amazing groove, great song all around.

7 Got Me Under Pressure

One of the best pure rock songs ever. My all time favorite song to work out to. Great sound and momentum. This song kicks ass!

Belongs in the top five for sure. It straight out rocks! Another rocking' song not getting enough votes is: I Heard it on the X.

Second favorite song, but I wish pearl necklace was on here, would of been my first pick.

Best ZZTop Song Hands Down... Makes me want to jump in a Ferrari and race someone!

8 Jesus Just Left Chicago

One of the greatest songs ever recorded! By any band! I'm not very religious but the lyrics are probably more meaningful than 90% of the songs out there!

This song just has soul. Every time I hear it, I can't help but close my eyes and bob my head.

As I vote, this is not in the top ten let alone the top three. Madness! Those chords!

Will always be my favorite... Fantastic song

9 Rough Boy

I like the easy, mellow sound of this. It's nice. Another time, another mood and my vote would go to Tush or Blue Jean Blues.

Breathtaking, the most simple ballad that ZZ Top created it to the highlights of perfection! This is I gotta listen.

Everything just fit into place, lyrics, sound, melody, playing,... Always takes me somewhere else! Incredible!

Original pioneering sound and lyrics, great video. This talented and great band has RANGE!

10 Sleeping Bag

Too high on the list. There are much better songs further down the list that should be ahead of this one.

I really like this song even though they put in dance beats but it is well arranged.

The Contenders
11 I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide

This song has an amazing sound to it, I could listen to it all day. I love the riffs and just how cool the guy driving sounds. Great to listen to on the road.

Listening to it I just see myself driving with a fat car full with chicks

1 Badass song. Old school.

12 Waitin' for the Bus

I like the more bluesy ZZ top songs.

Should be top 10!

13 Blue Jean Blues

On extensive listening to this band, I conclude Blue Jean Blues is my favourite, but at least 20 other ZZ Top Songs come a very close second.

My favorite, why? Listen in a cold dark room with a girl in your arms and then you gonna understand!

Contains such a tonefull guitar solo. Billy Gibbons really shows his blues ability. A true blues classic. Frank and Dusty compliment him so well. Easily top 10 material. An elegant beutiful song

Such a nice song to lay back and enjoy... Defenitley top 10 material. Just beautiful.

14 Pearl Necklace
15 Just Got Paid

Best song from them, that's for sure. Riff is one of the best ever. Just look at how it works Joe Bonamassa and everything will be clear.

Not just ZZ Top's best song, but one of the best rock songs ever recorded. Pure, unadulterated, bluesy genius.

Upbeat infectious sound

Just real and raw

16 I Thank You

48? This one should be top 10 at least

Wow Top ten easy

17 I Gotsta Get Paid

This song is really good. The guitar sounds very similar to La Grange, but I honestly think it's better. La Grange is just talking. The lyrics are not lyrics. This song has actual lyrics. The singing is super good, and so is the guitar.

This song was a pleasant surprise to me. Billy releases his inner "brother".

Heard this on the radio for the first time and turned it way up!

Oh come on can you not like this song!

18 Tube Snake Boogie

Just naughty... but nice!

19 Planet of Women

Good fun song with good guitar licks!

One of their best, shame it's so low.

Good fun song with good guitar!

20 Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers

This should be way up... Ithink this is at least a top 5 song. Just straight forward 70's rock and roll

I 'm 55 and still love this song! Grew up with it!

This should be be top 5 all time to be sure!

I agree one of the best with blue jean blues and Mexican black bird

21 TV Dinners
22 Stages

How is this not higher on the list? Great song.

23 Doubleback
24 Velcro Fly

This song is great! Should be much higher on this list.

25 My Head's In Mississippi

This is such a great song! The riff is kicking, similar to La Grange's, but better in my opinion. The lyrics are normal ZZ Top lyrics: Nonsense, but catchy.

More people need to hear this song. It's like the manliest song ever.

This one is awesome.

Just love this tune, rank it where you want to it's still one of their best...cheers
