2 Dead Embryonic Cells

Probably the best sepultura song out there. Dead embryonic cells has lots of great riffs, singing is great, overall just an awesome song. This is sepultura at its very best, back when max cavalera was still in the band.

This is the best song no. 1

Roots bloody rotos can not be the number one! This is the number one!

AFF Roots bloody roots at first!?!?!? NO

3 Refuse/Resist

Although it was not the best, but it shouldn't here. It must be in top ten. This song remind me the mass action in Indonesia by 1998.

I RESIST to get in the world of pop music and REFUSE to listen to it. - gemcloben

I'm surprised nobody noticed that this song is missing from the list! - sumit

What a chorus! Chills my bone

5 Inner Self

The best Sepultura song! Whenever you're in a bad mood this music will certainly convert it into a world beating positive mood. All the people on Facebook chucking ice over their head, posting statuses about the last time they blinked and listening to the latest brainwashing drivel in the charts will never quite understand how skilled and dedicated these musicians are and what a great band this is. They made this music because they felt they had to, not so as the ignorant masses would like it and not primarily to make money. To all the other remaining non conformists who haven't fallen victim to Big Brother AKA the media, this is one great song of many in this rebellious REAL genre of music. This is one of my favourites :-) - hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

one of the best trash metal, like it...

The whole album Beneath the remains is really trade mark from Brazilians. For me one of the best bands beside Death in metal genre.

Where's Slaves of Pain? But anyway, this song is SO moshable.

the drum intro (AMAZING), the guitar solo (ASTONISHING) and the voice of Max (INCREDIBLE)... this song is one of the best songs from them (maybe the best)... should be 1 - rock2metal

This song took me back to rock from rap. I was listening to rap, mostly, then heard this and came running back. Saw them, White Zombie and Pantera. Best concert ever!

Just because I feel this song deserves to be higher

The solo and voice is brilliant. - gemcloben

7 Ratamahatta

One of their best songs... The brazilian native music intro is just... AWESOME! -

Imagine this: before their famous, they went of a nationwide talent show. they decide to play this song. they start of with the Brazilian native music. the judges are confused by now. then the guitar starts and the singing. the judges would just be in shock. sepultura and their own genre only known as sepultura is born. - gemcloben

How is thia not number 1? This song kicks ass and hits hard I can't work out without it! Also try playing zombie games with it on a loop

8 Troops of Doom

Old fashion is better

I'll vote for this since escape to the voild is not listed.

My favorite

9 Desperate Cry

Words can't describe this masterpiece... Just listen to it! It's probably Sepultura's most atmospheric songs.

this song is just amazing super incredible awesome and quality of rock

Easily their best song. Just a masterpiece, the perfect collection of good riffs and drumming.

How could that tribal rattamata crap be above this amazing song, Igors drumming is NUTS!

10 Beneath the Remains

If any of you thought slayer was super fast, they're like a snail compared to this song. The acoustic intro was nice, but the song itself is just everything! It's heavy, it has great riffing. Max Cavalera's vocal is the definition of power. And like I said before, INSANELY FAST. This is sepultura thrash.

To be honest, on first listen I almost thought this was the Call of Ktulu by Metallica

The best thrash metal intro in history.

The Contenders

11 Attitude

What?. This is a JOKE!. This is no #2 on my list right behind Roots Bloody Roots

Great metal song! Cool music video too!

Not a bad intro, and an amazing song - gemcloben

This song is awesome
The nü metal sepultura kicked so much more more ass than thrash, shame it inspired slipknot and crap like that

It's a great cover, but it's originally by Motorhead. - IronSabbathPriest

13 Mass Hypnosis

very best rhythm gitar! 1

The guitar solo is just brilliant.

The pure thrashiness along with the nice instrumental middle make one of the best Sepultura songs around.

14 Slave New World

While way too short, this is an awesome tune. This certainly is a 2:55 of pure enjoyment. I just don't see why this isn't in the top ten.

This one compares with the best of em! Come on my people. Rocks!

Should get a better position in this list. Top 10 for sure

The speed is awesome
