Vote for the best Overkill songs.
The Top Ten
1 Ironbound

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.

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.

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

This song rules. Why aren't there any songs from "Horrorscope" on this list, like "Coma" or "New Machine"? That CD is their best.

2 Elimination

I have to go with the song that brought me to Overkill. Last one out closes the coffin door.

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

Elimination! What a song! Power surge is so under rated. Also for true thrash try In Vain

Speed, strong and thrash!

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.

You can feel ancient Black Sabbath, Tony's killing riffs. Sounds like my dream that black sabbath had taken UDO in their group after DIO had left

Unlike their peers, they play doom/stoner type songs quite well. This song, 'Spiritual Void', 'Long Time Dying'
Are good examples.

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

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'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.

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

Arguably the best Overkill song!

6 Time to Kill

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

One of the best songs from their album.

Why wasn't this on here?

7 I Hate

This song kicks so much ass. I hate people who make you feel small. I hate having my back against the wall. I hate being talked down to. But most of all I hate you.

It digs into stuff that really triggers an angry response in people, lights a fire within, and sends you into the pit like a charging rhino!

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

Best song from Overkill

8 Rotten to the Core

I love their debut album so much! It's definitely in my top 10 favourite metal albums list. Rotten to the Core is a prime example of a great Thrash Metal song in my opinion.

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.

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

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

9 Electric Rattlesnake

Holy crap it's a beast of a song!

10 Bring Me the Night
The Contenders
11 Hello from the Gutter

Their earlier stuff is great!

12 Raise the Dead
13 Necroshine
14 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!

The live version is more awesome.

15 Soulitude

Everything you could ask for in a song. Starts of very slow and relaxing. After a while it goes fast and brutal with incredible bass playing which fots the vocals and the drums! Can't believe this isn't in the top 10 at least

The best overkill song by far, The chorus is so powerful!

16 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

17 Overkill

The title track of Overkill and a real & pure thrash metal composition...
Overkill is the best east coast thrash band without any doubt!

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

This song attracted me to this band.

18 The Years of Decay

As a huge metallica fan, this is the best ballad I have ever heard.

Wow, what's a masterpiece like this doing down here?

Why is this so low? It should be in the top 10 at least.

Best metal song ever, period. How is this so low?

19 Struck Down
20 Black Daze
21 Mean, Green, Killing Machine

Okay everyone let's vote for this song.

So low for some reason

Should be number one

22 Blood Money

Killer riff and chorus

23 Feel the Fire

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

24 The Green and Black

Great intro. Awesome riff. This song contains everything you want in a metal song.

25 Fear His Name

Song gets me pumped up. I want to do something heroic when I hear this jam.

That is so cool, much better than every modern trash haha (if you know what I mean)
