Most Underrated Megadeth SongsMegadeth has many great songs, and some that could be top ten... if people knew about them.
The Top Ten
This alone is better than any other Metallica song :)
So amazing and so under-credited
The solos, drumming, vocals, ending... Everything is amazing!
OMGoodness! This one is my favorite! Definitely underrated! Drumming at the end is BEAST along with the rest of the song!
This riff kicks ass they definitely need to play it in every show
Engaged in crime I grasp my throat, Enraged my mind starts to smoke, Enforce a mental overload, Angry Again Angry Again Angry Aww! Such the best song ever
This is one of the best songs from this album but it's very underrated the riffs and the chorus is amazing on this song
An underrated classic for sure! Always puts me in a good mood. Just give it a quick listen!
Fun fact: This is Lars Ulrich's favorite Megadeth song! He revealed it in an AMA on Reddit.
Best solo ever createdV 4 Comments
The song is an excellent thrash track off Cryptic Writings, disappointed that it dosen't get as much recognition as other songs from the album like Trust or She-Wolf.
The best song with great sound, melody line and especially vocal of Dave Mustaine.
This shouldn't be underrated at all. Best song on the album and probably top 5 if not the best
It's about metal back in the 80s. Dunno why it isn't higher. It was featured on a duck Dodgers episode that also featured dave mustaine himself!
Lots of different parts, different intro rather than that 0-0-0-0 that's typical of metal. This one you will like if you have not heard it.
This song represents classic, gritty thrash metal at its finest.
My favorite album and possibly favorite song. Too 3 in my eyes.
One of the best songs by Megadeth in my opinionV 3 Comments
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.
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?V 1 Comment
Nicks drumming is awesome! The middle tempo change part is so smooth too! Lyrics are kinda weird, but a great riff makes up for it!
Hardly anyone even knows this song! The music resembles that semi thrashy stuff megadeth did in the countdown era. Truly awesome!
One of my favorites on Megadeth's sixth studio effort. It's a song that has a great rhythm, lyrics and tone, and is perfect for this list as I do not hear many people talk about it. A hidden gem!
Yeah one of the best Megadeth middle tempo songs. Heavy song that has a nice groove. They should play this live.
Amazing song, listened to it every day for like 3 months straight. Definitely deserves more credit than it gets. - sk8er7890
Don't know what it is about it, but I love this song. My Last Words is a close second.V 2 Comments
This song is so beautiful it deserves more praise - christangrant
This song is the literal meaning of underrated
The very beginning of Megadeth. Thrash at its best. Frantic rhythm and chugging guitars. Fantastic!
One of Megadeth's best thrash songs that has intense drumming, solos, and vocals.
This is every Head Banger Dream!
So Fast and destructive, moshpit maker indeed!
Such a great thrash song from the kings of thrash!
Great riff with powerful guitar and drum!
A song that has several parts to it including the fast intro and the creepy exit.
A classic metal song, enough said. Love it
Best song on Peace Sells with Wake Me Up
Those solos are so epic! During the period when Megadeth was going commercial, they released a ball breaking classic metal song. It's a shame they don't play it live.
Such a heavy song, with great solos by Dave and Marty.
This song is better than any Metallica song! This song is seriously underrated.Heavy riff,amazing solos,speed,thrash,melody,evil...it has everything! It's a shame they only played this song once in 1991
Very epic and emotional song and I think that it is truly underrated. Songs like ashes in your mouth or addicted to chaos aren't really underrated, because right now they are good known for being great songs.
The other songs are not truly underrated, at least that's what I think. This ballad is amazing. Mustaine is a genius. I think most of Megadeth's songs are masterpieces.
A Mustaine masterpiece that has several emotions all put in one song.
The drumming is insane on this song! It is really fast, with time changes and a cool double bass drum outro. Way too underrated.
