Zombies are great. Plain and simple. Zombies go great with heavy metal. Also plain and simple. I had drawn up a playlist of those metal songs most suited to soundtracking a zombie slaughtering, should a zombie apocalypse ever be upon us, which I thought was a good idea. And it was. What was not a good idea was the list, which wasn't particularly good at all. To rectify the situation, I have created this new, improved, and less embarrassingly terrible list. Since there are more than 50 wonderful songs to kill zombies to and I don't actually know them all, this isn't so much the "Top 50" as "50." Maybe if I get around to it I'll do up a sequel. In any case, here are 50.

Created by: ScreamingSteelUS | 10.03.2011



1. Goblin - "Dawn of the Dead" soundtrack
Still some classic zombie-killing tunes.
2. Disturbed - Down With The Sickness
Perhaps this is an obvious choice, but that's because it is one of the best.
3. Drowning Pool - Bodies
See above.
4. Gama Bomb - Zombie Blood Nightmare
That about sums up the situation.
5. Bonded By Blood - Feed The Beast
Hopefully you won't end up doing this.
6. Cannibal Corpse - Brain Removal Device
It would certainly come in handy.
7. Cannibal Corpse - Hammer Smashed Face
Always an option if you can't find yourself a brain removal device.
8. Cross Examination - Unlimited Chainsaw
Self-explanatory.
9. Death - Zombie Ritual
If you can describe it as a "ritual"...
10. Grim Reaper - Fear No Evil
Take heart, young grasshopper.
11. Heaven And Hell - Fear
On second thought, be very afraid.
12. Iron Maiden - Fear Of The Dark
Be slightly more afraid.
13. Murderdolls - Dawn Of The Dead
I think it's obvious why this one made the cut.
14. Skull Fist - Hour To Live
Even less if they're the fast zombies.
15. Obituary - Chopped In Half
Ideally, this would describe the zombies rather than you.
16. Rob Zombie - Living Dead Girl
Who says zombies can't be glamorous every now and then?
17. Marilyn Manson - If I Was Your Vampire
Okay, so it's obviously not about zombies. Musically, it fits perfectly.
18. Alice Cooper - Brutal Planet
Even more so if it's a planet populated by the undead.
19. Carcass - The Master Butcher's Apron
"The blood never dries." Indeed it doesn't.
20. The Misfits - Mommy, Can I Go Out And Kill Tonight?
Of course you can.
21. Artillery - Beneath The Clay (R.I.P.)
These riffs could sever heads.
22. The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
I'm no vegetarian, but I think the title would hold true in this case.
23. Kreator - Destroy What Destroys You
Obviously.
24. Death Angel - Left For Dead
It shares a name with the best zombie-themed game ever, so why not?
25. Anthrax - Fight 'Em 'Til You Can't
Another obvious choice, which was omitted from my original list on account of not being released yet.
26. The SLoT - Ночной Дозор
"Night Watch." Perfect atmosphere.
27. GG Allin - Legalize Murder
Not that it would technically be murder, but still.
28. Iced Earth - Among The Living Dead
After getting gypped on "Horror Show," I'm glad that Iced Earth finally have a zombie song.
29. Slayer - Kill Again
And again and again and again and again and again...
30. Ghost B.C. - Ghuleh/Zombie Queen
Only if you don't mind having some of the best atmosphere possible.
31. White Zombie - I, Zombie
For when you finally get bitten (because you know you will).
32. Anaal Nathrakh - This Cannot Be The End
Oh yes it can.
33. Children Of Bodom - Dead Man's Hand On You
Not if you keep your wits about you.
34. Evildead - Parricide
An unfortunate reality of all your compadres being slightly less than alive.
35. General Surgery - Convivial Corpse Disposal Methodology
Not that there is much convivial about this situation, but hey, if you can have some fun with it...
36. Rammstein - Feuer Frei!
Usually, you can't afford to wait until you see the whites of their eyes.
37. Manowar - Kill With Power
Probably the best strategy.
38. 3 Inches Of Blood - My Sword Will Not Sleep
Good, because neither will they.
39. Kypck - Чёрная Дыра
I'd guess this is the creepiest thing you've heard all day.
40. Metal Church - Merciless Onslaught
41. Six Feet Under - Zombie Blood Curse
Chris Barnes sure tried his hardest, but this is still a good song (somehow).
42. Overkill - Raise The Dead
Bad idea, Overkill. Bad idea.
43. Megadeth - Take No Prisoners
Zombies make for rather uncooperative prisoners anyway.
44. Pantera - Slaughtered
Everybody everywhere.
45. Bronx Casket Company - Dead... For The Moment
Until they get back up again.
46. Sodom - Outbreak Of Evil
Outbreak of SOMETHING, at least.
47. Exodus - Deathamphetamine
If you could kill with shredding, you'd be all set.
48. Type O Negative - Everyone I Love Is Dead
Way to be a downer.
49. Stalaggh - :Projekt Nihil:
This is just... wrong. It... requires more explanation than I can give.
50. Richard Thompson - Trafalgar Square
This is not related to zombies at all, either conceptually or aesthetically. But it's my list. What are you gonna do about it?

I included Death's entire first album (which contains "Zombie Ritual"). "Fight 'Em 'Till You Can't" had not been released at this point, though I agree that is a perfect song for such a list.
