The Top Ten

1
Ironbound
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.
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.
This song rules. Why aren't there any songs from "Horrorscope" on this list, like "Coma" or "New Machine"? That CD is their best.

2Elimination
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!

Bobby's voice at the start sounds like Micky Mouse
Best theme for represent trash metal, long live overkill

3Horrorscope

4Bring Me the Night
BRİNG ME THE NİGHT FOR THE... JUST LİSTEN

5Playing With Spiders / Skullkrusher
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.
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 left

6Coma
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.

7Time to Kill

8Rotten to the Core
Simple an amazing thrash metal song, nothing more needs to be said
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.

9Raise the Dead

10Deny the Cross
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.

26Who Tends the Fire
This is the kind of song that makes a band huge..
Really ambient song gets stack in your head from the first time you hear it.. I think it's an all time classic.. Absolutely in Overkill's top 5
When I read world war z and they played going south by iron maiden to attract the zombies so the snipers could pick em off it should of been this song by far

This is my favorite overkill song...why is it so far down?

29World of Hurt
Great song, amazing riffs, solos and lyrics!
This is an amazing song. The guitar work in this song is just incredible because it sounds so good. The lyrics are very well written in this song too and it is just a killer song to listen to. I recommend this to anybody who is open to any type of metal song.
Nice dark song by them and very surprising that it's not on this list already!

30Kill at Command

31Nice Day... for a Funeral

BronzeWolf96


32F*** You

33Evil Never Dies

34End of the Line
The chorus may sound like Judas Priest and the acoustic part like Metallica, but this is one EPIC song. My favourite by far, even if it seems to be quite unpopular among other fans.

35Soulitude
Everything you could ask for in a song. Starts of very slow and relaxing. After a while it goes fast and brutal with incredible bass playing which fots the vocals and the drums! Can't believe this isn't in the top 10 at least
The best overkill song by far, The chorus is so powerful!

36Save Yourself

37Wish You Were Dead

38Thanx for Nothin'
Fast groove metal full of energy and skill

39Spiritual Void
Sure I Hear Black isn't Overkill's best album, but this song is great. A hugely evil sounding riff that is infectious and a welcome change of pace.

40Endless War

41The Head and Heart

42Mad Gone World

43Overkill II (The Nightmare Continues)

44Powersurge

45Birth of Tension
Can not believe this song wasn't on the list at all! Any song that starts out with double bass that badass should be in the top 10. Get it together Overkill fans!

46Armorist

47Devils In the Mist

48The Goal Is Your Soul

49Hammerhead

50Black Daze

51Fatal If Swallowed
Its not number 1 but definitely. Deserves a spot on this list
Great Intro, Great Song from Taking Over

52In Vain

53Thunderhead
This song is just pure METAL!

54Battle

55Hellish Pride
Blitz's vocals, the skull crushing riffs, the lyrics, literally everything about this song is amazing.

56Shred
Such a great song. Something about Blitz's vocals on this song are just addicting

57Bold Face Pagan Stomp

58What I'm Missin'

59Drunken Wisdom

60Struck Down

61Genocya
Slow and heavy. The breakdown is amazing. A change of pace rare for metal bands.

62Gasoline Dream
Great underrated song that seamlessly moves from break your face thrash to a melodic climax. The classical ending is epic. Easily one of their best... Easily.

63Pig
Amazing song with a mean riff off their newest album White Devil Armory

64Where There's Smoke...

65Just Like You
