2 A Tout Le Monde - Youthanasia

One of the best metal ballads ever - DejanKalinic

Please, stop voting on "Symphony of Destruction". It's great but Megadeth made so many better songs... listen to some more Megadeth's work and then make your choice.

My top 15 for this list:
1. "Sudden Death" - Th1rt3en (absolutely insane guitarwork and great overall mood of the song)
2. "Back in the Day" - The System Has Failed (awesome and energetic... and just epic)
3. "A Tout Le Monde" - Youthanasia (beautiful ballad, don't hit me, but in my opinion it's even better than "In My Darkest Hour")
4. "Trust" - Cryptic writings (second great ballad, worse than "A Tout Le Monde", but still awesome. Intro absolutely kicks ass)
5. "Victory" - Youthanasia (most underrated gem on Youthanasia, incredible solo and great vocals)
6. "The Scorpion" - The System Has Failed (one of the best songs Mustaine has made since the return in 2004, awesome chorus and overall mood)
7. "Fatal Illusion" - Dystopia (definitelly the best song on their new record, Effelson is ...more

6 Trust - Cryptic Writings UListen to Sample
7 The Scorpion - The System Has Failed UListen to Sample
8 Blackmail the Universe - The System Has Failed

"Cold Wars are heating up again...".
This lyrics are Mustaine at his best, easily. No, it's not their best song, Holy Wars still is, but ide definitely one of their best. Riff mania all the way.

9 Ashes in Your Mouth - Countdown to Extinction UListen to Sample
10 Dystopia - Dystopia

The Contenders

11 Poisonous Shadows - Dystopia UListen to Sample
12 Back in the Day - The System Has Failed

My favourite song from "The System Has Failed", awesome energy from the very beginning to the very end. In this category loses only to "Sudden Death". Well maybe it's a draw between this and "A Tout le Monde". Anyway, definitelly top 3.

"Symphony of Destruction" is awesome but overrated as hell.
