Everybody loves a good raunchy number, especially with heavy riffs and lustful guitar licks. That’s right, not just about making noise, hard rock can also rock the bed sheets–especially when done correctly. To celebrate hair bands at that their sexiest, here are the 10 naughtiest hair band songs of all time.
After all, Spinal Tap did say, “what’s wrong with being sexy?”
10. Guns N’ Roses – Rocket Queen
Suitably sleazy for Slash, Rocket Queen is a six-minute mash up of shady lyrics and macho misogyny. In fact, the song is so scandalous that it’s also famed for featuring the sounds of love-making at its finest.
Raunchiest lyric: “I’ve got a tongue like a razor. A sweet switchblade knife.”
9. Divinyls – I Touch Myself
The boys can’t have all the fun, and singer Chrissie Amphlett certainly thought so, especially when belting out this sordid number. The song, which is obvious in its meaning, was a smash hit all the over world. Yay for female sexuality!
Raunchiest lyric: “I don’t want anybody else, when I think about you I touch myself.”
8. Van Halen – Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love
Probably one of the most recognizable riffs in rock history, “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” is also one of the sauciest songs out there. Hardly the most romantic song in the world, the tune is all about the dirty deed and best heard while shacked up between the sheets.
Raunchiest lyric: “Oh yeah, you think you’re really cookin’ baby. You better find yourself a friend, my friend”
7. Nine Inch Nails – Closer
One of the sexiest songs in music history, “Closer” is actually about self-hatred and obsession. Often misinterpreted as a lustful composition due to its sultry beats and explicit lyrics, the song is a firm favourite for those who are active in the bedroom–or wherever really.
Raunchiest lyric: “I want to f**k you like an animal. I want to feel you from the inside”.
6. Alice Cooper – Poison
One of Alice Cooper’s biggest hits, “Poison” paints a picture of wanting someone so badly that you eventually become addicted. Hardcore. Extremely successful, the song has been covered several times as well as appearing on the computer game, Guitar Hero.
Raunchiest lyric: “Your mouth, so hot. Your web, I’m caught. Your skin, so wet. Black lace, on sweat.”
5. Bon Jovi – Let’s Make It Baby
During the late 80s and early 90s, Jon Bon Jovi was the sexiest man alive, so who better to sing about erotic affairs and bedroom antics?
Raunchiest lyric: “So turn out the lights, I’m going down slowly. Don’t tell me what’s right. Just tell me you want me.”
4. Led Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love
One of the most famous Led Zeppelin songs around, “Whole Lotta Love” also has one of the most recognizable riffs in rock music. Detailing the yearning and gurning for a beautiful girl, the lyrics read as a reminder for those who want what they just can’t have.
Raunchiest lyric: “A-way down inside. A-honey you need it. I’m gonna give you my love. I’m gonna give you my love.”
3. Motley Crue – Ten Seconds to Love
One of the most outrageous tracks of all the time, the track is even said to contain some questionable noises, if you catch my drift. In fact, bassist Nikki Sixx claimed the sounds were real and that they were actually him in the middle of you-know-what.
Raunchiest lyric: “Touch my gun. But don’t pull my trigger.”
2. Aerosmith – Love in an Elevator
One of Aerosmith’s most famous tunes, “Love in an Elevator” was said to be based on a real-life encounter with front man Steven Tyler stating, “It felt like a lifetime waiting for those doors to close.” Saucy.
Raunchiest lyric: “I really need a girl like an open book. To read between the lines.”
1. ZZ Top – Pearl Necklace
Kings of the double entendre, ZZ Top go overboard when describing a certain sexual act that they call a “Pearl Necklace.” We’ll let you work that one out.
Raunchiest lyric: “She was gettin’ bombed. And I was gettin’ blown away. And she held it in her hand. And this is what she had to say. A pearl necklace.”
