The Top TenXW

1Metallica

What's up with this site? What is wrong with all you Metallica haters. Listen to me now people have been complaining to them ever since they released the official video of one (which kicked as). Metallica had the balls to do whatever they felt like and still be number 1 with the great death magnetic so stop hating

Metallica was the best thrash band of the 80's Megadeth was weak compared to Metallica in the 80's. Stop voting for cheesy Megadeth. Dave mustaine even knows Metallica beat then in the 80's

Really 2nd? Just remember master of puppets ride the lightning kill em all justice everything they stand for in the 80s

Megadeth's albums in this time were not so great. But Metallica's first 4 were amazing. Kept thrash metal alive.

2Megadeth

Metallica was at its best in the 80s so they deserve to be #1. But Megadeth is the best Thrash Metal band of all time. - velitelcabal

Ok, most people would have Metallica but please remember this is down to personal preferance - pennylagwaberurier

3Slayer
4Anthrax

Ha these guys know how to have fun

5Exodus
6Metal Church

Their sound was way ahead of what anyone else was doing in 1985. David Wayne was my favorite vocalist of the Genre during that era.

Metal Church kicks ass. Every album and every song is at least good and most are excellent. No B side crap.

7Overkill

Best thrash band hands down

8Onslaught
9Dark Angel
10Nuclear Assault

Just fkn great band tell me someone can drumming better than glen and they have subjects real subjects you can feel them listen to their albums like handle with care and game over specially fight to be free and from the 80 s ranking nuclear assault should be in the top 3
