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 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath

Why is this on here?


43 Scream Machine - Beyond Fear
44 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.

45 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.

46 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.

47 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel

Monster album, monster song.

This song is badass!

8 minutes of punishment.

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.

50 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.

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

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

54 Davidian - Machine Head V 1 Comment
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 Black Metal - Venom
57 Dead Embryonic Cells - Sepultura

This list is a joke, too much metallica and megadeth, why is st.anger even on this list, it's the worst thrash song ever. This song is amazing, it's fast and heavy. Old Sepultura rules.

The best thrash song off all time, awesome riffs, awesome vocals and an awesome breakdown

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 Justicia - Byzantine
