After last Monday’s top ten tracks post, who’s better metal than Metallica? Well, Megadeth off course! I They always won for me because they were always the underdogs compare to the well oil machine of the formerly. The leader of Megadeth Dave Mustaine was once in the former too, if you don’t know by now? Another reason why they’re a better metal band is because they did stick to it and not run off trying to be in fashion in the 90’s and 2000’s and then had to retreat back to it when it wasn’t working like the former too but no more comparing the two bands.
Let’s just get on with it, my all time fave tracks are…
These Boots – Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good (1985)
Peace Sells – Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying? (1986)
Set the World Afire – So Far, So Good… So What! (1988)
In My Darkest Hour – So Far, So Good… So What! (1988)
Hangar 18 – Rust In Peace (1990)
Take No Prisoners – Rust In Peace (1990)
Tornado Of Souls – Rust In Peace (1990)
Symphony of Destruction – Countdown to Extinction (1992)
Train Of Consequences – Youthanasia (1994)
Insomnia – Risk (1999)
Opening track is a cover and this is the clear version which like/love better than the dirty swear word version were different words were replace some lyrics which was pretty cool/funny but got them in big trouble with the songwriter Lee Hazlewood. They did have a beep out swear words version too, you know? I think, I just love that track covered by anyone and everyone!
The rest are originals in order of release with the only two members in that whole time were main songwriter Dave Mustaine on lead vocals and guitar with David Ellefson on bass and backing vocals but he only rejoined the band in 2010 to present. A lot of different players have joined and leaved over the years too, the classic line-up would be from around 1990 with Marty Friedman on second guitar and Nick Menza on drums, well for me. I’ve picked three from that killer album of that year but I couldn’t cut it down anymore than that. Also have wrote a whole blog post on that Rust In Peace album two or more years ago or something, linked here if you really need more Megadeth today?
You wanna let me know what your fave Megadeth song/s are? Or not?
