  • Ozzy Osbourne- Mama I'm Coming Home

    Written by Ozzy and Lemmy with Sharon in mind, this amazing song from “No More Tears” is a classic.

  • Danzig- Mother

    New Jersey’s Glenn Danzig Metals up mom in this dark, growly tune that is sure to bring out the horns!

  • Genesis- Mama

    One of my favorites from the 80’s – Mama is a creepy journey and one of the coolest vibe songs EVER!


  • Aerosmith- Mama Kin

    Aerosmith- singing for mom- come on? What could be better?!

  • The Rolling Stones- Mother's Little Helper

    Help for mom? Why not? The Stones have their own solution….no questions asked! What a great jam!

  • Lenny Kravitz- Always On the Run

    “My Mama Said”!!!! This tune also features Lenny’s High School pal Slash on guitar is such a 90’s classic. Advice from mom, sung by Lenny and accompanied by a guitar god……with a horn section…..SO GOOD!

  • Quiet Riot- Mama Weer All Crazy Now

    Originally recorded by the band Slade – but the QR version is so perfect! Long live the 80’s!

  • Pink Floyd- Mother

    Mom immortalized in “The Wall” – Such an eerie song of questions and a classic rock staple.

  • Queen - Tie Your Mother Down

    From the 1976 Queen masterpiece “A Day At The Races”, every time I hear about the party gown and pigtail down I’m ready to ROCK! This video is magic too- Long live Freddie!!

  • Fountains Of Wayne- Stacy's Mom

    A New Jersey band, super fun tune, great video- Come on….everyone knew at least one “Stacy’s Mom”!

  • Metallica- Mama Said

    A tune written for James Hetfield’s mom, “Mama Said” is on the 1996 release “Load” and has a beautiful message and a stripped down country style.


  • Lita Ford - Lisa AND Mother (TIE)

    Lisa is a beautiful tune that Lita wrote for her beloved mother- This one always brings a tear to my eye.

    The video is beautiful with some really personal moments.

    Mother is a song Lita wrote for her estranged sons Rocco and James.
