Top 10 Best Anthrax Songs

The Top Ten

1 Caught in a Mosh Caught in a Mosh Cover Art

love dis song... great music

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

I'm gonna listen it! Sounds very good, but people recommended me this band, I wanna hear them!

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.

2 Madhouse Madhouse Cover Art

One of the best thrash metal songs of all time

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

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

PROBABLY THE BEST THRASH METAL SONG EVER COMPOSED! Anthrax! The riff just sends chills down my spine..

3 Indians Indians Cover Art

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..

Time for the IndianS

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.

4 I Am the Law I Am the Law Cover Art

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.

One of the most catchy songs by Anthrax. Great main riff, superb vocal melodies. No doubt this song should at least be among the top 3.

5 Got the Time Got the Time Cover Art

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.

Gets stuck in your head instead of giving you a headache like some of Anthrax's other less-melodic stuff.

6 In the End In the End Cover Art

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!

Great Song. Must Hear.

7 Among the Living Among the Living Cover Art

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.

I was a little hesitant when I got the album to play it but once I herd the thrashing part on this song I knew I made no mistake.

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

Lol, it's by far the best song with caught in a mosh, why is it so underrated?

8 Belly of the Beast Belly of the Beast Cover Art

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'

Should be higher! Love this one!

To tune. enough said

9 The Devil You Know The Devil You Know Cover Art

Really good guitar in this song!

The best.

10 Fight 'em'til You Can't Fight 'em'til You Can't Cover Art

City authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and attacking the living! Best intro to any song! One of the best solos of all time! Best anthrax song ever!

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

Such a great song from start to finish. Great song to workout to

Best anthrax song ever! Hands down!

The Contenders

11 Armed and Dangerous Armed and Dangerous Cover Art

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.

Best Anthrax intro ever, amazing vocals and riffs. A gem of a song.

My favorite song from my favorite album there's no weakness in this song!

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

12 Medusa Medusa Cover Art

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!

This song is so catchy that its easily a top ten material

No way this can be so low in the list

13 Only Only Cover Art

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.

When James Hetfield calls it "the perfect song", you know this should be higher than 12th. THIS BELONGS IN THE TOP 3! Behind Caught in a Mosh and NFL

14 A.I.R. A.I.R. Cover Art

How is this song only number 14? its one of the classic all time thrash metal songs! Amazing guitar riffs and great vocals!

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

Best song on Spreading the disease! Way better than Madhouse!

Scotts riffs joeys vocals amazing lyrics the song speaks the rest

15 Antisocial Antisocial Cover Art

I play this to my brother and other people who I don't like. Great song

This is a cover song of antisocial by trust

This deserves a good place

This is just a cover!

16 Be All, End All Be All, End All Cover Art

I absolutely love this song. just listen to it its the perfect metal song.

The lyrics and guitar are amazing, and I don't think Joey belladonna has sounded this good in any other anthrax song

The song that made me a fan for life.

Top 10 min

17 Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.) Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.) Cover Art

This song is just so totally crazy!
When these guys get their s*** together it makes for some tight headbanging fun
m/

How is this thrash anthem not at #1?

Amazing vocals and chorus on this one.

John Belushi, man. Jon Belushi.

18 Keep It in the Family Keep It in the Family Cover Art

Excellent rhythm work on this track. The bass and drums compliment everything nicely. Finally the lyrics and vocals are great. What's not to like?

Very anti racist lyrics, great opening riff, amazing solo, and belladonna's vocals fit well.

Brilliant song! Love it!

Top 5 material

19 Gung-Ho Gung-Ho Cover Art

This is probably the fastest song they have ever made

Best Anthrax song!

20 Blood Eagle Wings Blood Eagle Wings Cover Art

This... is... not only the greatest masterpiece of Anthrax, but one of the greatest metal songs of all time in my opinion. The proud of Metal genre.

It's so low right now because it's from the latest album. I hope it will go up soon. It's one of their best songs and should have take it's place among top ten.

This song is truly great. If Anthrax can keep producing music like this then they are going to exceed their own incredibly high standards.

I'm in to epics. This song is epic. The video is epic.

21 Breathing Lightning Breathing Lightning Cover Art

This song was released this year, but believe me, it's one of the best. It's amazing.

Hands down a top 5 song by Anthrax, from the guitar solo to Joey's voice... simply amazing that they can still make great music

Anthrax fan all my life, favorite band as a kid... Give this song time to prove its worth, for a band in the twilight of their career, this track is bull good!

22 In My World In My World Cover Art

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/

Underrated

23 A Skeleton In the Closet A Skeleton In the Closet Cover Art

"Tell me a story - Will ya, Will ya

A real good story, I won't leave till ya

Spill your guts old man

Leave out any secrets, Hiding in the"

Tempo changes, punchy bass with a pick, great lead and backing vocals, perfect guitar tone, Anthrax at their very best.

This song is just plain awesome! Everything about this song is great and the gang vocals in the chorus are sick. Truly thrashy and I was very surprised to see that it wasn't on the list already.

How is this #52? Easily top 5 in my opinion

24 Death from Above Death from Above Cover Art

Great song from a great band

25 Imitation of Life Imitation of Life Cover Art

The whole band at a bloody fast pace throughout the song. May not be as spectacular as other songs on Anthrax's Among The Living album, but what it lacks in songwriting it makes up for in sheer pace (thanks to Charlie Benante's rocket thrash beats and Scott Ian's hyperfast riffing) and soul (Joey Belladonna wailing HAA-HAA-HA, anyone? )
