Amazing band with a shitload of amazing albums, formed after Dave Mustaine was kicked from Metallica for being a jerk.
n00bs to thrash metal tend to only listen to Metallica and criticize great bands like Megadeth without giving them a chance, while completely ignoring other bands like Testament, Exodus, and Kreator.

One of the greatest, most influential metal bands to ever have been formed, lead by the musical genius, lead singer and rhythm guitarist Dave Mustaine. They are highly underrated, because they pioneered some styles of heavy metal, the majority of thrash metal, and began speed metal.

Dave Mustaine was kicked from Metallica after his problems with drugs and alcohol and becoming violent. Though he held a short grudge, he set a goal that he would become better, faster, and heavier than Metallica. Therefore, it is for a fact, that Megadeth is the better, more consistent band. Metallica is still a good band, nonetheless. Dave Mustaine was the lead guitarist of Metallica, and thus is skilled in that area as well, and has a place in playing about 40% of Megadeth's solos. Although his solos aren't excellently clean, they are THRASH! His lyrics are also very well-written, and meaningful.

Those who bash Megadeth, saying things like "fuk off megadth iz the worst band in the wurld fuck you and all of you megadeth bitchs, go metallica!" ... Clearly, you're uneducated, the only words that are projected from your mouths are 'Metallica' and 'fuck', and have not heard more than three Megadeth songs, or enough to get used to their style.
Isn't it ironic that every single one of Megadeth's guitarists are better than Kirk? Megadeth's solos DO NOT consist of simply pentatonic scales.

Mustaine wrote songs like Ride the Lightning and The Four Horsemen (Mechanix), which his style can clearly be heard in. As Metallica progressed after Mustaine was fired, musically they strayed from Mustaine's style, allowing for a decline in the quality of their music.

A metal band formed by ex metallica guitarist Dave Mustaine. Mustaine holds a grudge against metallica, one of the main reasons is he is a writer of most of their songs on their first two cds, including the call of ktulu which mustaine remaid into Hanger 18. Metallica titled one of their songs 'Holier then thou'which was a lyric from the song 'Holy wars...the punishment due'from the megadeth album that came out a year before leading fans to believe that this song is directed towards dave. On Megadeths newest album the song Something im not is rumored towards Metallica members. the band was forced to quit when Mustaine suffered a nerve injury in his hand. He turned to christianity and was soon able to play guitar again. ellifson the bassist sued dave for not giving him his share of the money made of megadeth. and lars and Dave still hate each other even after their 'makeup' on the Some kind of monster DVD released by metallica.
Wow megadeth is a million times better then mettallica. some kinda monster what a great song.not.

Best metal band of the 80's 90's and today, releasing such hits as Symphony of Destruction, Peace Sells... But Whos Buying, Trust, Hangar 18, Forclosure of a Dream and many other great songs. Formed by former Metallica member (and co-founder) Dave Mustaine, who, contrary to popular belief, was kicked out of Metallica after a fight which occured when Metallica frontman James Hetfield kicked one of Dave's dogs.
Billy: Hey yo, I found me some cool music by Megadeth.
John: Right on Billy, Megadeth rock hard!
Steven: They certainly do.

A generic word for anything judged to be better than Metallica.
in deciding between metallica and megadeth, you have to ask do you care about ability, or passion, emmotion and song writing?

THE greatest metal band in all of history. Single handedly paved the way for thrash and speed metal. Formed in 1984 after Dave Mustaine was kicked out of Metallica, and thank god he was. Formed Megadeth as a rival to Metallica and proved without a doubt why he is the god that he is. Megadeth are the premier speed metal band, incredible solos, mind blowing lyrics and insanely good albums, ever single one of Megadeth's albums pisses all over Metallica. Stayed true to their roots, didn't sell out like Metallica and are still rockin' hard today. Restored my faith in metal and caused me to start my own religion with Mustaine as the chief god - Megadethism aka Mustaineism. Join today!
Megadeth could kick Metallica's ass any day. Just compare the albums to see why.
