A new generalized distribution called the {\em log-logistic modified Weibull} (LLoGMW) distribution is presented. This distribution includes many submodels such as the log-logistic modified Rayleigh, log-logistic modified exponential, log-logistic Weibull, log-logistic Rayleigh, log-logistic exponential, log-logistic, Weibull, Rayleigh and exponential distributions as special cases. Structural properties of the distribution including the hazard function, reverse hazard function, quantile function, probability weighted moments, moments, conditional moments, mean deviations, Bonferroni and Lorenz curves, distribution of order statistics, L-moments and R\'enyi entropy are derived. Model parameters are estimated based on the method of maximum likelihood. Finally, real data examples are presented to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of the model.
