    Favorite Megadeth album - Peace Sells

    Favorite Megadeth song - no way I can pick one, even 5 would be hard but off the top of my head - My Last Words, Good Mourning/Black Friday, Holy Wars, Lucretia, Set The World Afire.

    Posting this cos it's one of their best tracks but mainly cos I love the bit near the end when Mustaine screeches " aah you you.. you fucking liaaaarr" in his trademark whiny nasal voice. :D

    Dude.
    I saw that segment of SKOM when they were brainstorming lyrics.
    IIRC it was Kirk who comes up with it and Lars loved it?
    My reaction: "Holy shit, guys. That might've seemed cool when you were teenagers, but that's fucking dumb."

    That's the only album where they didn't have Het writing all the lyrics I think, also the only album they wrote the whole thing in the studio I believe.

    As for Dave's lyrics, "What do you mean I hurt your feelings? Didn't know you had any feelings?" I love Dave but his lyrics are a bit lame sometimes.

    This album I am listening to right now. 2008 Capitol Records reissue remastered 180g LP limited edition. This one has not be touched by Mustaine at all and features the all the original band members, no overdubs and no rerecordings of said albums instruments

    Yep. That image of Kirk sitting on that sofa with a notepad is forever etched in my brain.

    SKOM really ruined Metallica for me. They were my heroes when I was a kid. The only good parts of that doc were Robert’s Audition and Lars’ Dad telling Lars to “delete it.”

    That pitch to Torbe made me LOL.
    "Better to start over, delete the whole thing."
    "... that was gonna be our opening track..."

    By that point, Lars' dad understood what Metallica was about better than the band.

    I knew things were headed in a direction I couldn't follow when they got haircuts and facial piercings and shit and released the Black album.
    When James decided he was a singer, it was pretty much done.

    I mis-typed. Meant to say “Lars Dad telling Lars to delete it.” But you got what I meant. Lol

    There was a time when they had a great, big sound and owned the scene.
    But Megadeth has always been better. Better music. Better song structure, more varied, better instrumentalists without question.

    If only Metallica had made a few more records like the Garage Days releases, just stripped down songs without the overproduction.
