Top Ten Thrash Metal Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Hell Awaits - Slayer

It should be at #666 forever.

Woah baby no 68?
People need to escalate their senses.

Thrash has come alive with this cd - Storm1668

Top 10 damn

102 Sins of Omission - Testament

This song is great! The LYRICS, the GUITAR SOLO, the INTRO... all is great.

And I gotta say another thing: Cage the Elephant, The Offspring and AC/DC aren't thrash! - rock2metal

Just listen to the alex's skolnick riff in the begging. Thrash metal hymn! Why you guys are so stuck with Metallica and megadeth? Testament and overkill are the only bands that they have not changed their thrash sound and sounds more thrash as the years go by! Just the two of them! So why some of their legendary songs are so low in this list?

103 Nuclear Winter - Sodom

Dude why at 75?!?
This jam clearly deserves to be at the top 20 at least.
This song has to be one of Frank gosdzik's best ones when he was in sodom!

104 Assassin - Assassin

Yeah, I have their debut and 'Interstellar Experience' on vinyl. Quality German thrash.

I love this song. It's pitty that this song is not found in the web.

105 Prepare for Attack - Havok

This song should be at least in the top20... Havok are the best modern Thrash band around and deserve more fans and this song is just one of the most powerful songs I've ever listened to.

Why do people not like this song?

106 A Lesson in Violence - Exodus

Great song, extremely underrated thrash metal band. Great live.

107 Medusa - Anthrax

One of the best of Anthrax

One of the best of Anthrax

108 Napalm in the Morning - Sodom

One of the best songs of the band, an example of classic thrash well done, it deserves to be in the top 20, not here.

One of the best songs of the band, it should be in the top 20 for sure!

109 Thrasher - Evile

A great thrash song, very underrated. One of the newer up coming thrash bands of today. They have only been around since 2003 but have made a good mark on thrash metal history!

110 Khomaniac - Artillery

Disappointed to see this not placed in the top 25 at least. Khomaniac is a great thrash song with insanely technical riffs. I cannot speak for the rest of the Artillery catalogue but I can say without hesitation that this is a masterpiece of the genre.

Hell yes! A TECHNICAL thrash cult classic. Brilliant song off a brilliant album (By Inheritance, 1989). Listen to it with the intro, 7:00 from Tashkent, first. Catchy riffs, badass gang-up chorus, Exodus-style, very complex and technical in the vein of the "Rust in Peace" era of Megadeth.

Yea they are pretty cool. Sadly not many people know of them

111 Take No Prisoner - Megadeth V 1 Comment
112 Repentless - Slayer
113 Payback - Slayer
114 Mad Butcher - Destruction

Yet another very underestimated best from one of the founding fathers of thrash metal

115 Nothing to Say - Slash ft. M Shadows

This is the first metal song of slash. This song has great riff of slash amazing rhythm and vocals of M shadows. Listen to this song...

116 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.

117 Possessed by Fire - Exumer

Top song, top album.

118 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.

Such a very underrated song by the band, and one of my favorites. One of the Fastest and Heaviest Megadeth Songs That Ever Existed.

120 Nailed to the Cross - Destruction
