The Contenders: Page 5XW

81High Speed Dirt - Countdown To Extinction
82Psychotron - Countdown To Extinction

Great and effective riffing. Dave's voice fits perfect by the lyrics.

83Poison Was the Cure - Rust In Peace

59? Number 59? This is one of the most recognizable bass riffs in the world! The guitar is epic and also a great solo!, unbelievably not in the top ten...

Awesome song! Awesong riffs! Megadeth and Dave Mustaine are gods! One of the songs in the Rust In Peace album. Heck, the album is pure awesomeness!

Thank you Megadeth!

What a song. To me this song is the definition of thrash metal. Pure Awe when the riff explodes.

Why is this so low? It has everything to be a top song not to mention Friedman's work here. - alert23

84Return to Hangar - The World Needs a Hero

Amazing song, it has a different vibe from the original, but definitely lives up to the first. - sk8er7890

85Sin - Cryptic Writings

Sin should be way higher. In my opinion, this is in my top 20 favorite Megadeth songs. This song is probably the 3rd best on Cryptic Writings.

86Endgame - Endgame

The chorus riff is so intense after it goes silent for a while, I honestly don't understand why this is 73rd and not at least in the top 20. Chris Brodericks guitar work in this song is amazing and his technique is impeccable. Just like everything else on Endgame really, Chris is a good replacement for Marty.

Why is this song so underrated? The riffs and the solo are amazing.

87Use the Man - Cryptic Writings
88Coming Home - The World Needs a Hero
89The Right to Go Insane - Endgame

Hey, have you ever listen to it? It's unbelievable that this song is not in the top ten... amazing instruments, a progressive song, like five magics.

I'm voting on this one because it just can't be so low. I'm no saying it's a top ten song, but it's great and should be way hihger.

90Fast Lane - Th1rt3en
91Post-American World - Dystopia
92Back In the Day - The System Has Failed

Great song with awesome guitar listen to it

I'm pretty sure Duck Dodgers won't be real happy to see this one at no. 83.

It's a pretty mediocre song until the chorus at the end. It deserves to be somewhere in the 30's.

The opening riff is undeniably amazing. The most exciting riff in music.

94Kick the Chair - The System Has Failed

Megadeth's return to form is embodied in this visceral speed demon.

Love this one and especially it's solo! Can't fall asleep these days without giving this one a listen. Like the other commentator said, it's truly a "visceral speed demon".

This song is beautiful its in my top 5 favorite duel guitar riffs and solo and just sounds so badass

95The World Needs a Hero - The World Needs a HeroV1 Comment
96Bite the Hand - Endgame
97Moto Psycho - The World Needs a Hero

Almost sounds like Dave is saying motor cycle instead of moto psycho, but a very cool song though

98Almost Honest - Cryptic Writings

This is one of my personal favorite songs by Megadeth! The riffs and the lyrics are so great! Almost Honest should at least be in the top 30.

Wow I thought this would be top 20 since it had radio airplay. Great song!

99Kingmaker - Super Collider

This song at least needs to be in the top 30. This is one of the few decent songs in Super Collider and one of the best they made. It also has awesome riffs

The only somewhat good song on SuperCollider with Dance In The Rain, deserves to be higher in my opinion

I don't understand you don't like it
