Top 10 Slayer Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jesus Saves

In my opinion, the best Slayer song ever. Three badass solos in less than three minutes. I like it more than the other stuff on Reign of Blood.

It's just so weird!

Bizarre unique pseudo-chorus, solos everywhere, and breakneck speed. It's a truly underrated song.

Awesome song. Really fast. Crazy lyrics.

The best slayer song after Raining Blood and Angel of Death.

22 Bloodline

It is jst great song. it's the song which is one of the best of every metal fans

This song is just pure awesomeness. I don't know why people always says that his vocal skill "declined" after Divine Intervention... If anything, he just adjusted to his aging voice. Great riffs, Great Solo and an all around good performance.

I'll kill you and your dreams tonight,... Oh isn't that creepy

This song is epic pure perfection and way too underrated, the lyrics are so badass

23 Spill the Blood

One of my favorite songs of all time, I can't believe its this low on the list.

WOW THIS IS VERY LOW... WAY TOO LOW. Easily makes the top 15 in my book, but apparently I'm crazy, cause nobody else seems to think that

Should be in the top twenty at least, Such a shame

24 Exile

If you tried distilling pure, irrational anger and hatred, you'd end up with this song, it's the ultimate condensation of everything that's even vaguely unpleasant.

It's one of the biggest "f you" songs out there, it doesn't make any apologies for the steaming, hateful turd it is, and I kind of dig that

Strangely, for a flaming, blood stained middle finger, this song has a BEAUTIFUL solo.

23th place?
its one of the best slayer songs in my opinion!

25 Ghosts of War

Most all of the best ones are Jeff's work but this one is Kerry's masterpiece. The arrangement is more traditional than most classic Slayer tunes, but everything from the lyrics to the playing to the mix is absolute perfection.

Probably one of the most underrated Slayer songs out there.

To me the song truly begins after the guitar solo and then let me tell ya the song then comes in crashing, in my opinion the best Slayer riff of all time.

They may as well call this song "metal" - gemcloben

26 Kill Again

I can't believe it's been 27 years since I first heard this tune and entered to the realm of Slayer. Great chorus: "No apparent motive, just kill and kill again... Survive my brutal thrashing and I'll hunt you to the end... My life's a constant battle, the rage of many men... HOMICIDAL MANIAC! "

This song is so underrated. Every member is at full force here. Some of the best riffs and drumming are found in this song. Also it is Tom's best vocal performance in my opinion. He truly sounds like a serial killer.

Riffing is ferocious and evil, and Tom gives his best vocal performance of all time.

27 Mind Control

Great song with fast badass guitar, intense singing from Tom and great drumming. Should be higher than 35.

Love this one. Especially where Tom yells "CEREBRAL DEATH CAN COME TO YOU IN YOUR DREAMS! " Best way to end an album.

28 Americon

Why is this track over-hated? I think it's a great, groovy tune. The drumming is phenomenal! Also, this and Vices have similar drum patterns in the intro, with a thunderous thumping beat.

Great song! It's so heavy! The intro make me crazy! The lyrics are great too!

29 Behind the Crooked Cross

One of their best songs, and amazingly no one thought of putting it on this list yet. - HALOOOOOOOO

Best song from slayer for me!

Very good song overall

30 Payback

Really surprised this is all the way down at #32. This is a pretty awesome track and my favorite from God Hates Us All. I think it deserves to at least be top 15 or so here. Also a good song to listen to when you're upset or angry. - Element119

I like this song lyrically

Most brutal Slayer song.

This song is the insane sequel to Exile. From the start, Tom Araya abuses his vocal chords and almost bursts veins to the brutal lyrics and ever-so-hateful chorus of violent dismemberment, Paul Bostaph relentlessly beats on his drums, Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman torture their guitars at frantic tempos until the middle, where it slows down. Paul does double bass while the song gets heaviest. Don't be deceived, as there are some hateful lyrics in the middle. Then you reach the solo where Kerry King rapes his whammy bar and wah pedal to the point the solo sounds like someone's screams while he is brutally dismembered to the lyrics. Not to say the solo is bad though, as the solo fits the song. Then you get the violent chorus twice, and to top it all off, this song gives you a flaming middle finger.

33 Flesh Storm

This is a great song from a really good album, deserves to be higher than 26. It's not as good as Raining Blood, South of Heaven, and their other classics, but it's an amazing song that kicks off what I call their comeback album. Love it! - Djice1997

Take a deep breath because your life ends now if you don't vote for this! Awesome drumming and guitars mark this band's return to speed metal!

34 The Antichrist

WTF? This has to be up there, next to Raining Blood. - oriondiedalone

This should at least be somewhere in the top five. unbelievably low down. Not quite as good as Angel of Death but it should be very closely behind

My favorite slayer song. Tom's screams as if he's being tortured himself. And the lead is absolutely brilliant.

Great introduction to Slayer

35 Cult

Why is this song 32nd? What? This is definitely a top 10 song guaranteed, right up there with their best.

My personal favorites: Raining Blood, Angel of Death, South of Heaven, the ENTIRE Seasons in the Abyss album, Cult, Hell Awaits, Chemical Warfare, World Painted Blood

I can't believe this song is so low...

What man cult is the best song its got a acidic touch everything for a metal band RELIGION IS WHORE

My favorite Christmas song at 26?

This should be #1

36 Gemini

This is not only one of Slayer's best songs but no doubt one of best metal song ever. Really don't understand why people rate Angel of Death so much. It could be a hit during its era but cannot be considered a good song for a more reasonable reason. Gemini is heavy but flawless and not noisy, dark but embedded with very deep melody, also need to mention that guitar solo is better than in many other Slayer's songs

Criminally underrated and overlooked because it's the one original song on a covers song. The lyrics are so dark and personal. Makes you feel the presence of the zodiac killer the entire course of the song. When the song peaks it's like being one of zodiac's victims. And the music is heavy!

I hate to admit this, but Gemini is way more heavier then Raining Blood in my ears. - Mumbizz01

Totally agree if somebody pick this and put on top

37 Hallowed Point

Most underrated Slayer song

38 Criminally Insane

The vocals on this are absolutely sinister. Tom sounds pissed and the aggression on this track is awe inspiring.

39 Show No Mercy

27! Why? Epic drum intro epic solo awesome chorus. Very underrated.

The riff is too killer! How come this song's not-so popular?!

40 Stain of Mind

Popular as other iconic songs? Perhaps not. But this is one of the angriest songs in Slayer's repertoire, starting with fast riffs and heavy chugs of the guitar right before the chorus. And when Araya yells out "Blood will sterilize and fire baptize! " you know you've just been hit on the head with a sledgehammer of a song.

This song makes me want to punch a thousand dead kittens brutal dead kitten BLOOD SPATTER

This should have been in the top 10 what is wrong with you people

Really? Really? This should be in the top 10 for sure
