Top Ten Thrash Metal Songs


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Caligula - Sodom
82 Enter Sandman - Metallica

This isn't thrash, it's no where near the velocity of Battery or Holy Wars or Raining Blood. This song isn't a Thrasher

One of the greatest riffs of all time, AND one of the reasons why Metallica is always the king of thrash

People say it's overrated and that may be true to an extent, but it's still one of metal's greatest and deserves a place in the top 20.

This is not thrash at all. Why is it on the list?

84 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.

96 Metal Command - Exodus

Favorite ever exodus song! And yet we have a7x higher nice logic

97 Freewheel Burning - Judas Priest

Well, It does contain the speedy riffs, and the solos, and it sounds somewhat aggressive, so I guess it qualifies for thrash.
