I voted for raining blood by accident
La mia opinione e che I metallica e una miglior band che ci sia e faccio I complimenti a kirk hammett de suo strabilianti assoli di chitarra e che fanno dei riff strabilianti che spaccano
You hear something from this song in many thrash songs and even in many death metal songs. This is also the most copied riff in metal history. This is what I call INFLUENTIAL. - Metal_Treasure
Easy... Not my favorite song of the genre... but it embodies everything that is thrash in an anthemic fashion.
This album is just what thrashmetal is all about. no doubt that this is number 1
Very influential to technical thrash.
Great instrumentals and vocals, really well put together, James' scratchy vocals are fantastic in this one!
Search and Destroy by The Stooges is Good.
Literally like the best song ever written. Perfect title, topic, and amazing solo work by Kirk Hammett.
One is the best song of all time.
I agree this is the best song ever
This is an awesome song! It's what inspired Metallicas "Whiplash." - IronSabbathPriest
This is my favorite of their's. But is this song thrash metal? - zxm
The subgenre was named after this song - thrash.

It WAS the first one, after all...
No, it wasn't.
Groove metal. Thrash metal is WAY faster.
