Vote for the best Overkill songs.

The Top Ten

1 Ironbound

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.

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.

This band is legendary. Deserves a hell of a lot more attention that it ever got. So, so underrated

One of the greatest thrash metal songs ever

2 Elimination

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! - fidelcanojr

Bobby's voice at the start sounds like Micky Mouse

Best theme for represent trash metal, long live overkill

It would be the best if the riff didn't sound exactly like Master of Puppets. - MorbidCannibalSlayer

3 Playing 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.

One of my all time favorites. It kills me that enough people hear the magic of this song. Slow and heavy and then full out thrash. Genius.

One of the heaviest songs ever. Truly.

I just heard this song. It was good... But come on... #3!?

4 Horrorscope

In my opinion Horrorscope is their best album. This song gets my vote I Love how heavy and evil it sounds. The eerie bass intro is a nice touch.

Some people may not like that it's slowed down compared to their usual stuff, but it produces such heavy, juicy riffs. Mindblowing solo.

5 Coma

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. - joshapkin

I think Ironbound is best. It shows that Overkill still kicks butt. That being said, I still am a sucker for their old stuff, and of that, "Coma" is the cream of the crop.

You could put the entire horrorscope album to start this list.

True thrash right here..,/O,/

6 Time to Kill

Classic Overkill song give it a listen and you'll love it!

Why wasn't this on here?

One of the best songs from their album. - Ananya

7 Rotten to the Core

Simple an amazing thrash metal song, nothing more needs to be said

When I hear this song, I feel like thrashing my head off. - IronSabbathPriest

It is an excellent song, I like it very much

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.

8 I Hate

This song is underrated, and while it's nowhere near the best song, it actually has some pretty good lyrics. - DarkenedBrutality

Best song from Overkill - Johnnyt800

Addicted to that song

9 Bring Me the Night

BRİNG ME THE NİGHT FOR THE... JUST LİSTEN

I have no choice but to destroy everything around me like a metal thrashing lunatic whenever I hear this song!

10 Electric Rattlesnake

This is the best song from their latest album and the best after ironbound...
Electric RattleSnake

Holy crap it's a beast of a song!

The Newcomers

? Nothing to Die For
? Who 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

The Contenders

11 Necroshine

This must be the best song after ironbound

12 Deny 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. - superluke10000

14 Hello from the Gutter
15 Struck Down
16 Overkill

I just can't believe that this is on 15 and Feel the fire on 16.

This song attracted me to this band.

The title track of Overkill and a real & pure thrash metal composition...

17 Feel the Fire

This is the best Overkill's song

Overkill has so many good songs their older stuff is the best ever
