4 Angel of Death - Slayer

This is not only the best thrash metal song released by the big four. This is according to me the best thrash metal song ever released. The definition of thrash metal should be changed to Angel of Death. It kind of hurts me to see that Raining Blood is above this song. Don't get me wrong Raining Blood is an amazing song and so is the whole album Reign in Blood but Angel of Death just feels more thrash. - Grouse

5 Ride the Lightning - Metallica

I'm surprised to see this I'm front of MOP, really glad people like the other stuff more than just the most popular

I don't know why, but it reminds me a lot of Ride the Lightning by Metallica. - Skullkid755

Good. I think this is better than MoP by a little bit.

I love this song! - Pony
