10 More Rock Music Songs That Have Been Played The Most Live

9. ZZ Top - La Grange (1,688 Times)

Even with the death of long-time bass player and singer Dusty Hill in 2021, Southern rock giants ZZ Top are still going strong, putting on several shows a year to a dedicated audience.

With 15 albums under their beards and 39 blues-rocking singles, the Top are one of America's most prolific bands, which would explain why their live shows have taken on a life of their own.

Known for their jamming and low-effort dancing, the band have been wowing crowds since the late 1960s, with their most-played track hailing from the far-flung age of 1973.

La Grange from the album Tres Hombres is a largely instrumental piece, with the only vocals being a few mumbled lines from Billy Gibbons right at the start. Is this a bad thing? Absolutely not! It's a little slice of Americana that kicks ass without breaking a sweat.

ZZ Top have played La Grange live 1,688 times in their time, including in the town of La Grange, Texas for the first time in 2015. The residents must have been thrilled... until they learned that the inspiration for the song was a brothel on the outskirts of the settlement.
