The Top TenXW
Ever had a Metal-god orgasmic LSD experience amongst the Titans of Asgard while headbanging in snow? I do, every time I listen to Ironbound. Overkill is right up there among the greatest metal bands in history, and that is not going to change anytime soon.
It's really good. It gets better if you think that they are a really old band and they still keep up with their roots. I mean their older stuff. So Ironbound (album) is the best for me right now from them.
This song rules. Why aren't there any songs from "Horrorscope" on this list, like "Coma" or "New Machine"? That CD is their best.
This band is legendary. Deserves a hell of a lot more attention that it ever got. So, so underratedV5 Comments
Something is going around, crying at the epidemic, pullin' on nails, six feet underground... Elimination, elimination, elimination, elimination, eliminate the right, eliminate the wrong, eliminate the weak, eliminate the strong, eliminate your feelings, eliminate too late, eliminate your hopes, ELIMINATE, ELIMINATE... SO EPIC! - fidelcanojr
Bobby's voice at the start sounds like Micky Mouse
Best theme for represent trash metal, long live overkill
In my opinion Horrorscope is their best album. This song gets my vote I Love how heavy and evil it sounds. The eerie bass intro is a nice touch.
Might not be their typical thrash stuff, but to start with such an awesome, almost marching riff and to only get better and catchier for the entirely of the 10 minutes is a ridiculous achievement. Especially when it kicks in for real halfway through. Everything you could want from a song.
One of the heaviest songs ever. Truly.
You can feel ancient Black Sabbath, Tony's killing riffs. Sounds like my dream that black sabbath had taken UDO in their group after DIO had leftV6 Comments
You've got to be kidding me. This is #1 by miles. I like Ironbound and all, but there's way too many new fans mucking this list up. Ironbound #1? Please. - joshapkin
You could put the entire horrorscope album to start this list.
Classic Overkill song give it a listen and you'll love it!
Why wasn't this on here?
BRİNG ME THE NİGHT FOR THE... JUST LİSTEN
I have no choice but to destroy everything around me like a metal thrashing lunatic whenever I hear this song!
Simple an amazing thrash metal song, nothing more needs to be said
When I hear this song, I feel like thrashing my head off. - IronSabbathPriest
I like their new stuff but the old stuff is so much better! Powersurge, Wrecking Crew, Feel the fire. But my favorite Overkill songs are Rotten to the core and Fear his name.
It is an excellent song, I like it very muchV4 Comments
This is the best song from their latest album and the best after ironbound...
Overkill has so many good songs their older stuff is the best ever
This is the best Overkill's song
The title track of Overkill and a real & pure thrash metal composition...
Overkill is the best east coast thrash band without any doubt! - BrutalTruth
This song attracted me to this band.
Alright it seems that you've left all the classic Overkill pieces off of this list! How could you not have this one!
This song is fantastic. Very catchy and spine chilling. EPIC. OVERKILL WILL NEVER DIE. - superluke10000
The live version is more awesome.
Killer riff and chorus
That is so cool, much better than every modern trash haha (if you know what I mean)
It hasn't always been a favouirte of mine, but I guess opinions change ;)
Amazing intro, riffs, vocals
Great intro. Awesome riff. This song contains everything you want in a metal song.
Awesome track! The bridge is just EPIC!
