Weird. Strange how there's no mention of Jeff either.
I was looking the comments and one poster had this, and I am sure he/she did their homework

So when you break it down, surprisingly Kerry just edges out Jeff overall, but Jeff has still written or co-written the music to 19 more songs than Kerry.
It's amazing how much work Jeff did for the band and to think what Slayer would have been like without Jeff's songwriting/lyrics
