Best Songs from Metallica's Kill em All


The Top Ten

1 The Four Horsemen

The only what if experiment with this song was on And Justice For All. But there weren't any vocals on it. There were only four songs which had what if experiments that were from this album. Whiplash and Seek and Destroy would be on Ride the Lightning. No Remorse was for the Black Album and The Four Horsemen was for And Justice For All. But the vocals on those two were missing and those experiments were incomplete. So this song will most likely stay on Kill Em All.

This, oh my god I'm in love with this song, it's like the best kill em all song I've listened to, mostly because it is the only one I have listened to in the entire album. So yeah, also, it's fast as heck.

Thank god this is #1 on this list, this is one of the first Metallica songs I've listened to, so kudos to you.

Badass song. Dave wrote it, but Metallica did a great job. Killer riffs, bass, drums and vocals. - Userguy44

2 Seek & Destroy

The only what if experiment other than St Anger with this song was on Ride The Lightning. The reason for that was because of the bass wah pedal part that plays for a bit, so there's no way it could be on St. Anger or even any album after Master of Puppets. Unless you include Hardwired, which has Spit out the bone. Not very many people noticed this, but on the studio version the bass wah pedal part was included but when they play live, the bass doesn't play the wah. The solo is sped up on the Ride the lightning version, so it served with great purpose. For the what if album, I would confirm this song on Ride The Lightning.

Good riffs, vocals and bass. This song pretty much defines Kill 'Em All. Pure raw energy! - Userguy44

For the dumbass below me who is trying to convince people that Hammett did not record on Kill Em All, you sir, are completely wrong. Mustaine left well before the end of the recording because he was an idiot who kept drinking and doing drugs and pissing off everyone else.

One of my favorite riffs in Metallica’s long history

3 Whiplash

The ultimate going crazy song. - Userguy44

The only what if experiment with this was on Ride the Lightning. So let's put it on that album along with Seek and Destroy.

Super dank song.

I headbang to this! Old school trash! - Userguy44

4 Hit the Lights

The one that started it all. You gotta love the classics. A great intro not just to the album, but for Metallica's entire career

Perfect tempo and lyrics. It is just so fitting for Metallica's style at the time: almost like the war cry or battle call.

The guitar solist was neither kirk nor mustaine. It was Lloyd Grant, just told for your information.

My favourite song of kill em all. Seriously the riff is killer and fun at the same time

My personal riff. The whole song is very "groovy". The intro riff is cool and it's catchy.

Kick ass riff and co-operation between all the members.

One if the most influential song for groove metal and the riff is one of my favorites. - gemcloben

This song has the best solos! Dave Mustaine rules!

Best metallica song ever

Thrashiest song on the album; has the fastest solos; the riff is an obvious nod to Motörhead.

This is great song! So full of energy and kick-ass! Just give it a listen!

Its got speed and aggression, just Metallica - gemcloben

7 No Remorse

The only what if experiment with this song was with the Black Album tone, but the vocals were missing, so ultimately it couldn't be on the Black Album. The only way to deal with this song is just to leave it on Kill Em All as it is. Other than that, there's nothing else to do.

Underrated, the riffs, solos, drums, bass, vocals, everything. The part where James screams ATTACK! is very epic!

COMPLETELY underrated! By far, THE best song on Kill Em All. All of the bestestest riffs are congregated in this one song! Be honest with yourselves... are you voting for "four horsemen" or "seek and destroy" because they're already such iconic songs? Are you really listening with your ears and fingers and feet? No Remorse is indisputably the best song on this record. Period.

I love the intro riff and how the drums beat it, love the entire song

How is this so low?!

I can't understand why no one likes this song. It's pretty awesome

Underrated beyond belief. It's one of my favorite Metallica songs of all time!

Best song on Kill 'em all. Slow intro, turns fast pace and the chorus is melt your face off badass!

9 Metal Militia

The Rust In Peace version of the song is awesome.

Metal Militia - Rust in Peace
Whiplash - Ride The Lightning
Seek and Destroy - Ride The Lightning

And that just about does it. There will be no other songs being moved. That's all we know for now.

Awesome riff and great lyrics. Why is this so low?

Most aggressive Metallica song ever! - Userguy44

At the bottom? Absolutely insane this should be in Top 5

Legendary Bass Solo

R.I.P. Cliff best bass solo by the most talented bass player of all time!

This is an awesome bass solo, R. I. P Cliff Burton - dragon13304

Come on guys, that's a prove that the bass guitar isn't a secondary instrument! It need to be less underrated!

The Contenders

11 Am I Evil?
12 Blitzkrieg

Definitely not on ride the lightning or kill em all.

For those who are confused, Am I Evil? and Blitzkrieg were bonus tracks from when it was reissued in 1988, so that's the only reason they're on here - dubsinthetubs

Its on garage inc

Is this even from kill em all? I'm sure its on ride the lightning - gemcloben
