The Top TenXW

1Caught In a Mosh

Their best song, without a doubt, and awesome for live shows. I always wanna play this one with my band!

This is an awesome song. This is probably the best Anthrax song. It's hardcore and you want bang your head to it. Truly a metal classic.

Their best song. Period. Love the riff, probably one of their best But A Skeleton in the Closet should be right behind it.

This song is so rebellious. I love it! - DoroExploro13

2Madhouse

One of the best thrash metal songs of all time

Brilliant song the best of anthrax specially the combination of voice and guitar solo. Long live the big 4

This, Master of Puppets, Raining Blood, and Holy Wars (The Punishment Due) were the best thrash metal songs made

Scott really nailed this one. - gemcloben

3Indians

Drumming brilliant, great guitar and good vocals, a very classic thrash song and Anthraxs best.

I fell in love with this song on The Big Four Live.. I love the lyrics, the solo..

The main riff in this song is a masterpiece. This and Breathing Lightning are my favorites. If you haven't heard Breathing Lightning yet, listen to it NOW.

Great song, great message. - Brobusky

4I Am the Law

This should be Number One!
Bring the Noise shouldn't be on this list
Antisocial's not that good..

RESPECT THE BADGE!
He earned it with his blood.
FEAR THE GUN!
Your sentence may be death because

The book of law is the bible to him
Any crime committed is a sin!
He keeps the peace whith his law-giver
Judge, jury, and executioner!

Got to be one of the best lyrics ever, definitely anthrax's best.

Judge Dredd. That's reason enough to make it number 1.

5Got the Time

This song could be one of the best in the thrash metal world... I describe this song as... Awesome!

Got the time.. Tick, tick, ticking in my head!

This should be the best of time, the rhythm was very good for head banging. Great guitar melody. Awesome tunes for the spirit of metal thrashing mad.

Most of the other choices were pretty close, but this is so clearly the best. No way to describe it except that it gives you a huge rush.

Pretty good, but it's only a cover... - Brobusky

6In the End

Probably one of the most deep songs by them. Although recent, the song has all the more meaning as it was dedicated to Ronnie James Dio and Dimebag Darrel. Awesome song overall! Definitely the crown jewel of "Worship Music" and one of their best songs.

Great tune! It just builds and builds and has a really cool intro also. Along with The Devil you know, are the two best from Worship Music.

I honestly think that this song needs to be pushed in the top 5. It's one of the Anthrax songs I've ever heard, and certainly one of the best metal songs to come out in the last couple of years. Vote people! - ThePassing

Great Song. Must Hear.

7The Devil You Know

Really good guitar in this song! - EdwardDurden_2000

8Fight 'Em 'Til You Can't

In my mind, one of the top 10 thrash songs of all time, I love it

Best anthrax song ever! Hands down!

9Belly of the Beast

Their most underrated song, should be in Top 5...

This song MUST be listened to straight after 'intro to reality'. just like Judas Priest's 'Electric Eye' HAS to be listened to with 'The Helion'

This is the MOST CATCHY SONG they have by far! Better than "Caught in a Mosh" "i'm the Man" or "Indians". Anthrax simply has not marketed this one very well. I think the the lyrics are about the anti-Christ I'm not too sure. But I care less about lyrics. Its all about the tune for me! If you are an Anthrax fan who hasnt heard this one, then I highly recommend this one! Mark my words, I gaurantee youll like it!

10Among the Living

Simply best song from their best album. Great opener, awesome intro and then Belladonna vocals with amazing riffs from Scott and his company. Dynamic and heavy. Why it is so underrated? It is as good as Caught in a Mosh, Indians or I'm the Law, for me even better. Come on vote for this masterpiece.

Best song, awesome riff, drums and vocals from joey m/

Well top 5 at least, what is people thinking with...

The 2nd best song from their best album. - Brobusky

The Newcomers

?Intro to Reality
?Inside Out

Like fire, like cancer, like I've never been gun shot...

John Bush's voice is just so raw in this song.

How is this thrash anthem not at #1?

Amazing vocals and chorus on this one.

John Belushi, man. Jon Belushi.

13Only

MY GOD, 17th! This song is, by far, one of Anthrax's classics. Absolutely love the intro, the verses and chorus... in fact everything about it! And the riff is so magnificently different and unique that it really catches your attention. Give it a try, it's definitely a song worth investigating

Epic beginning with a drum solo great lyrics and maybe the best chorus they have ever written m/

Arguably grunge, and I know people aren't fond of Bush; you can't deny this is one of the best songs ever written.

Best song of the Bush-era

14Medusa

Belladonna's best vocal performance I think, great riffs, amazing lyrics. One of their more underrated songs, off of Spreading the Disease.

Wow, absolutely incredible, everything a metal song needs. Pounding, thrashing, incredible riff, perfection in the vocals, extremely catchy too. This is a masterpiece of heavy metal!

Scott Ian nails this song with his guitar. It's also Joey Belladonna's best song. Love it. - IronSabbathPriest

This song is a masterpiece.

15Armed and Dangerous

The beginning maybe is a little slow but once the heavy part kicks in this song is badass in every possible meaning of the word. Awesome song altogether.

My joint favourite with Madhouse on the Spreading the Disease album. - IronSabbathPriest

It may start slow, but that only serves to increase the epicosity that is Armed and Dangerous!

16A.I.R.

This is in my opinion one of the greatest thrash songs period

Scotts riffs joeys vocals amazing lyrics the song speaks the rest

17In My World

This song describes the words that spin round in my head. Perfect!

The Best son in Persistence of Time

That opening riff is just awesome m/

19Poison My Eyes

One of the best and least know songs from the band. Even before "Sound" was released, Bush gave a driving vocal on this.

Great song that was on The Last Action Hero soundtrack.

20Bring the Noise

Public enemy is easily the best hip hop group ever. Anthrax is in my opinion the third best thrash metal band ever. When the two collaborate you know the result is going to be awesome

For better or for worse anthrax pioneered rap metal and they did before anybody, even before aerosmith. Not to mention how they fused metal and hardcore.

Paved the way for other Rap/Metal fusions, like Rage Against The Machine and Faith No More. Definitely one of the most creative experiments Anthrax ever did.

Proof that rap/metal can work - Brobusky
