If there ever was a rock and roll singer that defined the spirit of having a good time it is Sammy Hagar.

We have been big fans of Sammy Hagar since we first saw him in the 1970s open for Boston. He’s one of the most written-about artists on this site. So here we go again with another Sammy Hagar article as we celebrate Sammy Hagar’s best party songs. There are of course so many more that could have been placed on this list, but these are ten of our favorites.

# 10 – Cruisin’ & Boozin’

We open up our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list with the legendary song entitled “Cruisin’ & Boozin’.” This one may be a little raw and basic, but it’s early Sammy Hagar that defines the man who knew how to have a good time. I was in high school when this song came out and believe me, we celebrated many nights playing this song. Imagine releasing a song with this title in today’s world. It would not go over well. Nonetheless, this is one of our all-time favorite Sammy Hagar party songs. It was released on his Sammy Hagar album that was nicknamed Red because of the cover. It was released in 1977.

# 9 – Turn Up The Music

Continuing with our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list we showcase the party song entitled “Turn Up The Music.” The title pretty much says it all. This good time song was the opening cut on Sammy Hagar’s Musical Chairs album. The albums stood as the follow up to his breakthrough Sammy Hagar album. Musical Chairs was released in 1978. The band throws a little Chuck Berry riff into the middle of the song. “Turn Up The Music,” featured Sammy Hagar on lead vocals and guitar, Denny Carmassi on drums, Bill Church on bass, Alan Fitzgerald on keyboards and Gary Pihl on guitar.

# 8 -Shaka Doobie (The Limit)

In the number eight spot on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list we present the song “Shaka Doobie (The Limit).” This is one of those songs where everything is going wrong but Sammy basically says who gives a … That’s what we call a real party song. A party song of salvation. The song was released on the album entitled Ten 13. The album was released in 2000. It was the opening song on the album. The song features Victor Johnson on guitar, Jesse Harms on keyboards, Mona Gnader on bass and David Lauser on drums.

# 7 – I’m on a Roll

In the number seven position on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list is the song entitled “I’m on a Roll.”  Sammy starts this one out by shouting into the microphone before the band begins telling fans they are in for a good time ride on this one. The song was released on the album entitled Cosmic Universal Fashion.  The album was released in 2008.  It was the first single released from the album. The song was written by Sammy Hagar and Niki Oosterbeen.

# 6 – Fight for Your Right to Party

Sammy Hagar has covered many songs throughout his career, especially with his most recent band Circle. Nonetheless, his cover of the Beastie Boys’ most famous song stands as one of our favorites. This one was just perfect for Sammy Hagar’s party song attitude. This fantastic cover was released on the album Cosmic Universal Fashion. 

# 5 – Heavy Metal

At the halfway point on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list is the song magnificent song entitled “Heavy Metal.” Some rock and roll songs just have that legendary style riff that defines the party mood. Some have a good time sweet feel, while others have that darker let’s get down and dirty party feel. This one is as intense as it gets and it just bleeds rock and roll party animal that you just don’t try to stop. The song was placed in the animated film Heavy Metal back in 1981.

# 4 – Mas Tequila

At the number four spot on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list we present the spirited song entitled “Mas Tequila.” This one opens with Sammy Hagar even stating that he is going to show you how he likes to party. I mean for Pete’s sake the man made more money with his Cabo Wabo Tequila than he made in the rock and roll business. I think that qualifies for writing a pretty happy party song about Tequila. The song was released on the album entitled Red Voodoo. The album was released in 1999. The song features Victor Johnson on guitar, Jesse Harms on keyboards, Mona Gnader on bass and David Lauser on drums.

# 3 – I Can’t Drive 55

Driving along on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list we present the raging song entitled “I Can’t Drive 55.” While this song is clearly about breaking the speed limit, it would be safe to say that breaking the speed limit for Sammy Hagar was all about having a good time on the road. The song was released on the album entitled VOA. The album was released in 1984. “I Can’t Drive 55,” was placed as the opening song on the album. It was also released as the lead single and would become one of Sammy Hagar’s most popular songs of his solo career.

# 2 – There’s Only One Way to Rock

Just of the top spot on our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list we celebrate the intense song entitled “There’s Only One Way to Rock.” For rock and roll musicians and fans, partying is all about rocking out. Sammy Hagar delivers big-time on that concept in this roaring song. This was one of Sammy Hagar’s solo songs that he would also perform with Van Halen when he became the band’s lead singer. It was fun watching Van Halen perform this song in concert.

# 1 – Rock ‘N’ Roll Weekend

We close out our top 10 Sammy Hagar Party songs list with the electrifying song entitled “Rock ‘N’ Roll Weekend.” While this may not be Sammy Hagar’s most famous song or maybe not even that popular among just the average fan, longtime Sammy Hagar fans will always remember this one.
