Top Ten Thrash Metal Songsajtcat
The Contenders: Page 3
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.
Agent Orange is a really magnifisant song. It is just as good as the best big 4 songs.V 6 Comments
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
Overkill are the fathers of thrarh metal.. Can't believe they are so underrated
This is really classic overkill song! Amazing song pure overkill!
Very good song, pre classic thrash demonstration
This song is great!
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
So underrated! Please give it a listen and compare it with Metallica.
Bay Area thrash, excellent!
It's power, it's agression, it's speed, it's THRASH!
For the record Exodus was the very first thrash metal band... but got famous after Metallica
This album proves that exodus is truely better than many ofthe other supposed to be thrash bands...
Yeah and to this day they are still kicking ass
Fast with great solos and iconic riffing, what more could you want from thrash?
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
Fastest thrash band and song of all time!
Awesome song - fast and heavy. - Metal_Treasure
This is real thrash,is this place full of posers?
Come on, does it really deserve 38th? Moth into Flame is better.
Awesome song and spectacular fast beatV 3 Comments
The FACTS (there's no rip off): Dave Mustaine co-wrote a big share of this song while he was still with Metallica. So both Metallica and Mustaine have equal copy rights/credits. Originally, Dave Mustaine wrote lyrics about a sexual intercourse at a gas station or something like that (he used them later in Mechanix by Megadeth). But Hetfield said the lyrics were silly and wrote new ones - lyrics you hear in The Four Horsemen.
Later, when Mustaine formed Megadeth, he recorded his own version of this Metallica song (originally it was a Metallica song although music was basically written by Mustaine). So music of the two songs is essentially the same but Mustaine used his lyrics rejected by Hetfield. - Metal_Treasure
Don't know why this isn't anywhere on the list, this is a massive over site. Legit a top 20 song, top 5 of Metallica
Actually, Mustaine wrote pretty much all of it. Did Metallica rip off? A bit. But that's okay. And yeah, Mustaine's lyrics are dumb. If only they could meet halfway with Mustaine's fast version and Metallica's lyrics.
Lol! Metallica, the inventors of thrash, accused of ripping off another song from another thrash band. At-least James and co. Are apocalyptic with their 'rip-off' of Mechanix, because I'm not really interested in cars. You may like Metallics's 'Fuel' though, but I doubt it, because it's dreadful.V 1 Comment
Best thrash metal album ever. Everybody thinks that in the first 10 should be the earliest thrash albums, but this is the most complete one. Hallowed point, War ensemble, Dead skin mask. Who can write such songs? Only slayer.V 2 Comments

This is master of revolution...
