The Top Ten

1 Caught in a Mosh

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!

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.

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

2 Madhouse

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

Spreading The Disease #1 Album, Medusa best Song

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..

Head banging riff

4 I 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.

My favorite anthrax song because the bass line is really powerful and the lyrics are amazing

5 In 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

This is just...so cool and heavy, I love it!

6 Fight 'em'til You Can't

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, sholud be at least in the top 5

7 Got 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.

@Brobusky So? Still a song on their album.

8 Belly 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'

Should be higher! Love this one! - gemcloben

To me is numero uno but honestly it' gotta be on the top 5 thrash songs of all times! Awesome intro, perfect drumming, bass and the headbanging riffs wow can't get enough of it!

9 The Devil You Know

Really good guitar in this song! - EdwardDurden_2000

10 Only

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

The Contenders

11 Among 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.

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?

12 Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.)

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.

One of the very best

13 Keep It in the Family

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! - gemcloben

Yo
i try to understand
what the hell is going on

14 Armed 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!

15 Antisocial

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

This is a cover song of antisocial by trust - Gh_player

This deserves a good place

This is just a cover! - Brobusky

16 Breathing Lightning

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 - ice_us88

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!

17 Medusa

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 so catchy that its easily a top ten material

18 A.I.R.

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

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

19 Gung-Ho

This is probably the fastest song they have ever made

Best Anthrax song!

20 In 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/

21 Death from Above

Great song from a great band - DoroExploro13

22 A Skeleton In the Closet

"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. - hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

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.

1st in my opinion.

23 Metal Thrashing Mad

Such a catchy song between the awesome beat, the beautiful solo and Joeys singing it is just an awesome pick-me-up sorta song.

This is the only anthrax song that worths listen to..
And it's really a masterpiece..

Kickass thrashterpiece! It's not Joey or John but it rocks just as hard as any of their other classics

It is real one of the best songs together with deathrider, awesome! :) It is rly too underrated.

24 Imitation of Life

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? ) - K3W3L

25 Aftershock
26 Safe Home

The solo are so good, the riff is like a long Highway of power, the voice make you dream.

One of best make you sure you are in a big heavy metal family.

Good solo, catchy vocals = good song

Heard it once and couldn't get it out of my head

27 1000 Points of Hate
28 Finale

What why so low? It is an amazing song with amazing riff and lyrics!

29 Poison 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.

30 Black Lodge

I don't know who's doing the voting on this but Black Lodge should most definitely be in the top 3.

It was a toss up between this and Safe Home but in the end I gotta go with Black Lodge.

The greatest anthrax song!

31 All of Them Thieves

This song is absolutely incredible, needs to be way higher.

32 Anthrax
33 Zero Tolerance

Amazing song to finish For all Kings with a bang!

34 Parasite
35 Be All, End All

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

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

Top 10 min - pruvet

36 A.D.I. / Horror of it All

Being one of the more complex anthrax songs, horror of it all is by far the best anthrax song. The solo and the thrashy part at the end is incredible.

Love the intro, love the song. Top 5 Anthrax song for sure.

37 Alpha Male
38 You Gotta Believe

This song kicks serious ass!

IMPALED

39 Time

Time and Blood are two awesome songs that need to be at least in the Top 20. Persistence of Time is one of the most Underrated metal albums of all time, my second favorite of Anthrax...

How IN THE WORLD is Time down here at 52? Great, chugging riff, awesome guitars, and an awesome solo too. What's the deal?

PARANOIA!

40 Inside Out

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

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

Very Underrated Song - christangrant

41 Who Cares Wins
42 A Toast to the Extras
43 The Enemy
44 Howling Furies

VERY underrated song.
My top 5:
1. Howling Furies
2. Among The Living
3. Armed And Dangerous
4. Death From Above
5. I Am The Law

45 Crush

This song really should be higher - christangrant

So my favorite Anthrax song is FORTY TWO? what!

46 Intro to Reality
47 Neon Knights
48 Revolution Screams
