Top Ten Best Exodus Songs

Exodus is one of the greatest thrash metal bands from the 80's, and has been around as long if not longer than Metallica, Slayer, etc. I don't see any lists related to Exodus on this site, so I made one myself.

The Top Ten

1 Piranha

Its a very good song it has a exellent riff and all is exellent!

exellent song!
it has an awesome riff

Piranha is their best song because of wonderful riff

Best thrash/speed metal riff in history, definitely one of the greatest metal bands, and one of best songs ever made to exist in pride of metal forever

2 Bonded by Blood

The original version is one of the best Thrash Metal songs of all times, I listened this song for first time many years ago, and it still feels fresh and amazing, Best Exodus song hands down.

Smash everything; leave nothing unsmashed! Baloff is god.

One of the classic thrash songs.

This song represent what thrash metal is...

3 The Toxic Waltz

Perfect song to mosh like a psycho circus clown!

This is the song that got me into Exodus. I just love it, not much more to say.

Mosh pit anthem

Awesome Song!

4 Strike of the Beast

Awesome song, one of the my most favourite thrash metal songs

One of the best thrash metal songs ever made

How can this not be on number 1?

I checked a video of them playing this at Wacken.. That wall of death.. This song is an absolute classic and a thrasher of note

5 Blacklist

That pounding bass and drums, the deep gritty guitar riffs, Steve Souza's gravely voice. This song is pure evil and I love it.

Excellent vocals, Soothing guitar work, Warm but smooth bass and very unique drumming.

The craziest fast paced song, should definitely be higher

Great song, should be higher.

6 And Then There Were None

The original is better than the one on Let There Be Blood!

Hands down the catchiest riff ever

7 A Lesson in Violence

Their best song, fast riff from a wonderful song

Brutal song, especially the live version of the DVD Shovel headed tour machine Exodus live at Wacken! Best Live DVD ever!

One of the best riffs created by the H-Team.
Simply one of the best thrash songs ever.
Exodus till death!

8 Children of a Worthless God

This song kicks ass, listen to the main riff, solo and chorus... Every bit is great - jernejbarbariu010d

Sensational lyrics, riffs and strike!

An Extremely Underrated Song! Perfect epic and intense the whole time!


9 Metal Command

Maybe not their best riff but definitely their best solo, and certainly an epic chorus.

He Screams "METAL COMMAND" then the thundering Guitar Solos comes

Badass song

The Contenders

11 Fabulous Disaster

12 Exodus

Greatest song for headbanging and moshing... EXODUS ATTACK!

13 Good Day to Die

How is this not even in the list? This song is amazing and is the first song of exodus I have ever heard

My favorite song of Exodus :D

14 Deliver Us to Evil

Easily my favorite exodus song, amazing vocals by baloff and amazing riff

15 The Ballad of Leonard and Charles

This song is perfect. It's like a metal roller coaster. It starts off with a soft acoustic guitar, then all of a sudden these crazy, adrenaline-fuelled riffs come in and take you on a wild ride. When the acoustic guitar comes back at the end you feel so overwhelmed and calm at the same time, it feels like you've just been on a musical roller coaster. This isn't just my favourite Exodus song, it's also my favourite thrash metal song. It's amazing.

One of Exodus best guitar solos. - andytepedino

This is the BEST exodus song ever in my opinion.

The solos... Enough said

16 Verbal Razors

From the Beautiful Disaster album. Great song, great riffing, machine gun vocal delivery... Awesome!

Best exodus riff and great lyrics, bring back souza!

Very underrated song

17 Raze

Fantastic guitar work with great singing. A thrash classic.

Awesome just funking good.

18 Deathamphetamine

Wow at 19 most Exodus fans must not be paying attention to their newer albums. I'm a long time thrash metal fan I love Testament, Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax, even Destruction, Kreator and Sodom, but Exodus' newer albums are unbelievable. They are better than their earlier stuff which is hard to swallow for some, but true. This song is an absolute epic composure.

Song is incredible. The vocals guitar bass riff and rums altogether is just amazing.

This is an absolutely massive song, packed with heart busting riffs. Exodus is one of bands that have just got better and better. I mean Jesus. Usually when bands from the 80s make music now they fall flat on there faces. Not exodus. Amazing.

This is one of the most BADASS songs EVER made. Period.

19 Riot Act

Ultimate masterpiece! Dukes on vocals gives Exodus a really aggressive tinge which makes them so modern! Give it a listen and perhaps you'll share my views - PsychoSandman33

20 Blood In, Blood Out

This song is Badass! At least top 10 - ryanrimmel

21 The Last Act of Defiance

Energetic riffing and venomous vocals... and a wicked solo!

22 Funeral Hymn

Awesome song... This song got me hooked on Exodus

These Riffs and solos are epic. Everything a metal song should be.

This song should be in top 10.The riffs and solo are all perfect.

This intro is awesome! - Metal_Treasure

23 Iconoclasm

Tom Hunting is a beast!

The one of most fastest metal songs. Tom's drumming is too great...and also guitar riffs and solos...please watch this song that they live play in Wacken 2008..I would think, this song should be between top 5.

24 Downfall

Epic song, with great riffs... Its just a masterpiece

One of the heaviest guitar playing ever
First song of there's I heard and I started listening to em more often

Amazing song overrall, definitely underrated

Hell yeah this song is tgrash and metal core like riffs
Great solo

25 Impaler

That riff is just killer.

26 Forward March
27 Architect of Pain
28 Brain Dead

This is a largely underrated song, as for me it should be at the top. ONce I was working in the lab at night and I played the damn thing like 100 times in a row... Just keep you moving!

Love that classic trashy riff

Duh! This is just a no brainer, should be way up on this list!

29 No Love

This song should be in the top ten, maybe isn't accepted by the people but it haves greats riffs that makes me love this song - JrG

30 Culling the Herd

This song is amazing. Great riffs, great lyrics and lyrical themes, great solo, fast, heavy, and one of their bests for sure.

31 Scar Spangled Banner

Hey, this song ROCKS! Great song, great solos, outstanding riffs, perfect drumming, great voice, awesome lyrics and EXODUS is one of the best thrash metal bands out there!

This song should be higher up perfect thrash song

32 Thrash Under Pressure
33 Pleasures of the Flesh
34 Shudder to Think

What this list is so retarded wheres funeral hymn, baclist, riot act, and throwing down. but this song kicks ass

35 The Sun is My Destroyer

This is a brutal masterpiece. One of the best songs from Exhibit B!

36 'Til Death Do Us Part

Here's another from the 'pleasures of the flesh", great song, truly classic!

Awesome drum intro!

37 Throwing Down
38 Like Father, Like Son

How is this only 42? This is a great song!

39 Me, Myself & I
40 The Atrocity Exhibition

Their progressive masterpiece. It blows away their early stuff. This heavier, modern sound works so much better, and I would prefer it o times out of ten to a throwback listen of Toxic Waltz or Bonded by Blood. Loved the Dukes era.

This.. is... awesome! Got to know this song by following this list

41 Chemi-Kill

One of the best thrash songs of all time! Exodus is so underrated...

42 Cajun Hell
43 Parasite

Thrashy, and just great Exodus

44 Impact is Imminent

This is one of the most awesome, most intense, most unique, most creative, most energetic, and most rabidly poignant songs that I have ever been graciously blessed with the opportunity to hear. This song has remained one of my top favorite songs since its introduction in the early 1990's, from one of my top favorite albums and top favorite bands. What I like most about the song is the exuberantly tight and hysteria-inducing guitar riff that tears through most of the song and presents a distinctive style that sets the song apart from any other in the thrash heavy metal genre. This song defines Exodus at their core.

45 Salt the Wound
46 A.W.O.L.

ZETRO is a thrash GOD!

47 Deranged

Far to low in this list. POTF is a very underrated album. Perfect opening song!

My favorite Exodus song with an excellent vocal work of Zetro

48 Good Riddance

How the hell is this song not at least top 15?
Pure killer from beginning to end!

49 Within the Walls of Chaos
50 44 Magnum Opus

"I won't ever stop 'till the last body drops, let the bullet be my guide! " yeah! Exodus' most underrated song by far.
