Top Ten Thrash Metal Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Remember the Fallen - Sodom

Not their fastest or heaviest song, but the lyrics are great and you get the chance to follow them, unlike with agent orange or baptism of fire, which are also great songs.

This song is awesome, I love how the lyrics are in honor to the soldiers who fought in the vietnamese war.

Another good song, it deserves better position.

This song is clearly one of the best that Sodom has done in their entire carrer. Not because of the instruments, but because of the great lyrics.

42 Desperate Cry - Sepultura

This song is incredibly powerfully in every way, should be way higher

This is an awesome song from a masterpiece album

Lol...this awesome song on 127...this hurts...all Slayer crap is overrated...Sepultura totally underrated...

43 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath

Why is this on here?


44 Scream Machine - Beyond Fear
45 Painkiller - Judas Priest

What is happening on the second page of this list? Painkiller, Almost Easy, and Neon Knight are not thrash songs - germshep24

A song and album which sounds powerful but is named after a soluble aspirin.

Oh, made me crazy, greatest metal song ever, great singing, everything great.

46 Strike of the Beast - Exodus

Whether it's the original or remake, this is Exodus going toe-to-toe with Slayer. It melts the listener.

47 Violent Revolution - Kreator

My only hope my only solution!

This is master of revolution...

Great song! Kreator rules!

Great song filled with extreme aggression. perfect.

48 Dystopia - Megadeth
49 Agent Orange - Sodom

This song is amazing, Sodom is the most underrated band in Thrash metal history.

Sodom is as good as Slayer should be in the top 3

Completely badass. Can't believe Elimination is higher than this.

This song is real thrash metal from teutonic masters.

51 Human Insecticide - Annihilator V 2 Comments
52 Suffer the Masses - Flotsam and Jetsam

A skull-crushing, melodic gem from 'When the Storm Comes Down'.

53 Davidian - Machine Head V 1 Comment
54 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica

Hetfield on Psychiatry: 'They see it right, they see it well, but they think that saves us from our hell'. Moving? Profound? Poetic? True? He was once, not only the greatest rhythm guitarist and vocalist on the planet, but also the great lyricist this side of Maynard James Keenan.

55 Disposable Heroes - Metallica

Not the best, but definitely deserves to be higher than 83.

So thrash song, the best song of the Master of puppets

One of my favorites by Metallica

Forever my favorite tallica's song! Why so underrated? James' vocal r so great and the lyrics r awesome :D

56 The Toxic Waltz - Exodus
57 Black Metal - Venom
58 Masked Jackal - Coroner

So underrated! Please give it a listen and compare it with Metallica.

59 Mechanix - Megadeth

I Happen to love this list. It is the best thrash metal list I've seen around. Differently from many others it gives Megadeth the recognizement they deserve and it includes many songs from excellent bands like testament overkill sodom or Kreator and does not put all the songs from Metallica first. My vote goes to Mechanix because it is the first thrash metal song ever with hit the lights by Metallica defining what thrash metal should be

Are we running on the same servers? Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer is all you see anywhere you go. Not only that, but these multi-millionaires are THE MOST UNDERRATED BANDS OF ALL TIME! Skip to page 10 and start from there.

Love this song very much
The first time I hear it... I totally proud
The most perfect riffs
Dave mustaine RULES

60 Stone Cold Crazy - Queen

It was the first thrash metal song ever!

I wouldn't say it was the first thrash metal song and just because it has an amazing riff I wouldn't call it thrash metal. If anything I would say it might have influenced the genre. The song is too pop to be considered metal, it would be like call a Beatles song thrash Metal, just because it had a heavy riff. - germshep24

This is the first thrash metal song like @AggressiveBlaze said.And yes metallica didn't create thrash metal song.Just listen this songs riffs.thrashy riffs - zxm
