I think I might prefer Megadeth to Metallica.

How many Thanksgiving songs are there? I can't think of a single one.



You prefer Megadeth to Metallica? Even with the horrible, laughable vocals? The vocals that are, like, so funny that they sound like a joke and you wonder if itís sipposed to be funny? I mean, I know thereís some of that with Metallic too, but not to the Megadeth degree. Itís like a comedy routine.

Dave Mustaneís vocals are an affront to the very practice of singing. Or would be if it didnít have comical significance.

I too prefer Megadeth over Metallica. Lars' drumming is weaksauce, and never gets any better, and Mustaine's solos are infinitely better than Hammet's


Both are good though.

Oh, dude... no.

Fair enough that Mustane might be a better soloist than Hammett, but I donít know that I can agree about the drumming (also I donít play drums, so my opinion is only so valid). But itís about what the band does as a whole. And even at their shittiest, Metallica hasnít come close to the ďIíM A SCARY STORYTELLING MUPPET!Ē bullshit Mustane laced the Megadethscography with.

Heís the Billy Corgan of Metal. Only even Corgan doesnít sound so shit.

LOad. Reload.

Mustaine , from what I have read and heard from friends, is the nicest fucking guy to talk to at a show. The dickheads from Metallica? Not so much (except for Hammett. he is a cool dude)




Rust In Peace is front to back, probably the greatest Thrash Metal album ever.

Risk. Nuff said.

I gotta admire Metallica for actually trying something different.

Load and Reload both had some decent rock radio songs. Both are better than THIS

ďMemory RemainsĒ has a Marianne Faithtful feature. Thatís pretty ballsy.

None of it is great, mind you, but itís all better than Megaderp.

Also, it was a gamble. Not a lot of gambles in big-tent metal.

The intro to that song is pretty sweet.

The whole thing's ridiculous. All the death-fetishizing. The boring, adolescent "fuck the system" politics. A few other things that add up to something that can be easily parodied.

But both M's can sometimes rock. They are fun and make me laugh.

Shitty vocals--both james and Dave sort of suck, so the issue is which type of sucking you can tolerate the longest--are the least of my worries.

Dave Mustaine reminds me of at least one kid I went to high school with. I can't be the only one who had that experience.

Meh. I think Master of Puppets and Ride the Lightning and even AJFA have genuinely brilliant and engaging compositions that kick ass and are unoffensively sung.

Megadeth doesn’t have any songs like that.

Metallica > Megadeth

Hahaha, it's a fun one. My favorite is probably Fuckin' A, their 'cock rock' album.

Had to look this one up on Discogs......was hoping to see a Too Fast For Love cover song. 110 songs is also a fun time!

Yeah it was their final release, and also probably their most developed - songwriting wise. If you dig AC's sensibilities... I can't recommend it enough
