Top Ten Thrash Metal Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Madhouse - Anthrax

A thrash metal classic. Just a killer opening riff by Scott Ian.

How the hell is this #75. It should be in the top 20 at least. Awesome riffs, great vocal performance from Joey Belladonna, a real classic. And St. Anger is ranked above this.

I like this more than Caught In a Mosh honestly, still a great song though. This needs to be higher.

82 Five Magics - Megadeth

Awesome song, incredible musicianship. Starts slow and builds into a incredible thrash metal song.

Best intro no doubt. Don't listen to the remastered (re-recorded) version though.

Great song great bass, vocal and guitar riffs

83 Poison Was the Cure - Megadeth

I can't believe this song doesn't get any credit, it's pure thrash! Fast, explosive and precise as hell. Also, hands down one of the best riffs ever written by Dave.

I voted for this because it definitely should be higher than 249. That riff is fast and technical, it deserves more credit... - somekindofaguy

84 Arise - Sepultura

This was the first Sepultura song I ever heard. And I instantly loved the band! - IronSabbathPriest
