Top Ten Catchiest Thrash Metal Songs

Title explains, as always. Just a bunch of catchy thrash metal songs.

The Top Ten

1 Alison Hell - Annihilator

Yes! Happy to see it at #1 because it's usually underrated.
I'd second NightmareCinema - I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like this song either. And what's not to like here? That's a great song. Those riffs! Also the solo, the melody, the story. And Jeff Waters backing vox when he growls "Alison Hell". - Metal_Treasure

You saw this coming for sure. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like this song. - NightmareCinema

2 Rotten to the Core - Overkill

I love literally everything about this song. - NightmareCinema

3 Mechanix - Megadeth

I personally think that the riffs are better heard in Metallica's The Four Horsemen (a song with the same music but different lyrics). I also think that Metallica's The Four Horsemen is catchier than Mechanix although music is basically the same. - Metal_Treasure

This song is just amazing. It may just be about a horny gas station attendant but still...the riffs man... - NightmareCinema

4 Agent Orange - Sodom

This song has some of the best riffs I’ve ever heard in my life. - NightmareCinema

5 Master of Puppets - Metallica
6 Caught in a Mosh - Anthrax

Once you hear this song, there’s no un-hearing it. - NightmareCinema

7 The Toxic Waltz - Exodus

That riff is truly one of thrash’s best. I just can’t get it out of my head. And holy god, those solos. - NightmareCinema

8 Seek and Destroy - Metallica
9 Raining Blood - Slayer
10 Hangar 18 - Megadeth

The Contenders

11 Angel of Death - Slayer

Speaks for itself in all honesty. - NightmareCinema

12 Practice What You Preach - Testament

The epitome of pure attitude. - NightmareCinema

13 Welcome To Hell - Venom

I’m not a big Venom fan but I do quite like the first few albums. - NightmareCinema

14 The Four Horsemen - Metallica
15 Peace Sells - Megadeth
16 Prayer to the God of War - Vader

Vader, basically a death metal band, made a thrash song with very playful music that is also catchy. - Metal_Treasure

17 Anarchy in the U.K. - Megadeth
18 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel

Those epic heavy riffs are so catchy - there was time I couldn't stop playing this song. - Metal_Treasure

19 Got the Time - Anthrax
20 Midnight Mover - Accept
21 At Dawn They Sleep - Slayer
22 Young and Useless - Thunderhead
23 Surf Nicaragua - Sacred Reich

Mainly because of that bassline. - NightmareCinema

That riff is crazy! - Userguy44
