81 Psychotron - Countdown To Extinction

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

82 High Speed Dirt - Countdown to Extinction
83 The 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.


84 Sin - 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.

85 Use the Man - Cryptic Writings
86 Endgame - 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.

87 Fast Lane - Th1rt3en
88 Coming Home - The World Needs a Hero
89 Post-American World - Dystopia
90 Die Dead Enough - The System Has Failed

This is my favourite megadeth song. - dragon13304

Gr8 Song! one of the best on the system has failed

92 Poisonous Shadows - Dystopia

Best song from Dystopia and one of their best songs in decades

How is this so low? definitely the best song from Dystopia. Great intro, wonderful chorus and one of the best solos from the new album (after Dystopia).

Very good song from the new album very melodic deffenatly worth a listen or two

Why is this so low? This is their most brilliant song in a very long time. Personal list -
1. Holy Wars
2. Peace Sells
3. Symphony of Destruction
4. Sweating Bullets
5. Poisonous Shadows
6. Killing is my business
7. Foreclosure of a Dream
8. Endgame
9. Hangar 18
10. Dystopia

93 Kick 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

94 The World Needs a Hero - The World Needs a Hero

What? That song is awesome you poeple really don't understand

95 Back 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.

Should be way higher on this list.

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

96 Moto Psycho - The World Needs a Hero

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

97 Kingmaker - 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

98 I Thought I Knew It All - Youthanasia

one of the melodic songs of megadeth

99 Promises - The World Needs a Hero

I can't believe this song is down here! It's one of my favorite songs of ALL TIME! Come on guys!

And when we walk down the street wind sings our names in rebel songs... just listen to it! The lyrics, the melody-just amazing!

I think this song is a masterpiece please vote it

Wft this song should be in the top 5

100 Sleepwalker - United Abominations

The funniest and most clever Mustaine creation. This song is a special one that they should play live.

This happens to be the first megadeth track I've heard and also the favourite.

The hells wrong with you people? This should be the best one! Ffck!
