Most Underrated Megadeth Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Psychotron - Countdown to Extinction

I was blown away when they played this song live on the 20th anniversary tour. This song is incredibly heavy!

A song that's truly great when nobody knows about it. It has great riffs and solo fills throughout.

22Lucretia - Rust In Peace

Perhaps my favorite, so much different from any metal song and weird but in a good way. Only Mustaine could come up with such amazing song!

23Tears In a Vial - The System Has FailedV1 Comment
25Poison Was the Cure - Rust In Peace

This song is so underrated, that it isn't listed in the most underrated Megadeth songs. Seriously, I never hear this song get mentioned and it's one of the best in Rust in Peace.

The transition from just the bass and drums to everything else is simply amazing.

I think the solo at the end of this song is the single greatest moment on RIP.

26Five Magics - Rust in Peace

The bass is sexy, and it has excellent progression. It starts of pretty fast, then gets a little slow for a couple of minutes. And then it gets, like one of the guys said- fast, loud, and rude.

Underrated. THIS is thrash. The bass intro is badass, and the song is fast, loud, and rude.

I can't understand how this is on 29. like are you serious?

27The Disintegrators - Cryptic Writings

Its got to be one of the best off this album, but they rarely played it live. The solos kick ass as well!

Yikes... What a crazy song... direct, heavy, and with addictive chorus... Burning it down... To the ground!

2844 Minutes - EndgameV1 Comment
29Kill the King - Warchest

I think most people don't even know about this one.

It's not the best, not even top twenty, but it's definitely the most underrated song.

This song is the real "1note song of rage "

I love this songs,it's one of my most favorite songs especially the intro,but it's really underrated - Toucan

30Washington Is Next! - United Abominations
31Use the Man - Cryptic Writings
32Take No Prisoners - Rust In Peace
33Return to Hangar - The World Needs a Hero

Interestingly, usually about 1 out of 6 people like this song better than the original, Hangar 18. Personally, I think Hangar 18 is the better one, but Return To Hangar is a close second. It definitely ought to be higher on lists.

Such an Epic Start. Its incredible that noby really cares about it. Solos are decent.

World Needs a Hero isn't the greatest one. But some of its songs are a true piece of art, such as this one and prmisses.

34Disconnect - The World Needs a Hero

Just listen to it. And give it actual chance. You might actually find that you like it.

Quite hated among Megadeth fans... But it's personnaly one of my 10 favorites

35Good Morning/Black Friday - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
36Blood of Heroes - YouthanasiaV1 Comment
37Prince of Darkness - Risk

This is a legendary track that does not get its due because it's on Risk. Yes, Risk is the worst megadeth album after Supercollider, but this is genuinely a brilliant song. Best intro, insane chorus and the bridge is easily one of megadeth's best. Give it a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised

38Foreclosure of a Dream - Countdown to ExtinctionV1 Comment
39Dance In the Rain - Super Collider

I love this song with very simple but very dark riff.

40I'll Be There - RiskV1 Comment
