Reasons Why Metallica is Better Than Megadeth
Who is overrated is a different subject. Things are simple - we compare the vocals of Hetfield and Mustaine. Without a doubt, Hetfield is a better singer. Period.
Dave can't sing. He even admitted it himself.
True, but Dave is still a good guitarist.
Metallica's bad albums: St. Anger and Lulu. Megadeth's bad albums: Cryptic Writings, Risk, The World Needs a Hero, and Super Collider.
This is important because Metallica did more for the popularization of thrash at the early stages of the subgenre.
Megadeth was the last band in the big four that was formed, and it wouldn't have existed if Dave Mustaine had never left Metallica.
Even Chad Kroeger from Nickelback is a better singer than he is.
Yes. Except Escape and Leper Messiah are the worst songs.
Much more powerful lyrics for sure. No Megadeth song has hit me as hard as One, Fade to Black, Bleeding Me, or Master of Puppets.
Four Horsemen has better lyrics than Mechanix.
The atmosphere in Megadeth has been really bad, mainly due to Mustaine's ego problems, his dictatorship, and other issues. This is the reason so many members have left. Metallica are a better team with better relationships between the band members.
They always had the same guitarist (except for the Dave Mustaine incident), singer, and drummer, but it was the bassist that was the problem.
The first five Metallica albums are simply acclaimed in many metal communities more than any other metal albums.
Megadeth has changed their members countless times, but Metallica has always remained almost the same band. Everyone knows James, Lars, and Kirk. Everyone loved Jason and Cliff, and now everyone loves Robert. What can we say about Megadeth besides Dave? And even about Mustaine, all I can say is that he sings terribly.
Megadeth has changed lineups a lot. Metallica has changed their lineup a few times. They replaced their original bassist with Cliff, replaced Dave with Kirk, then Cliff died in a bus crash and he was replaced by Jason. Then Jason left and they replaced him with Rob.
This is kind of true.
Not a reason, but Megadeth did break up once and then got back together. But Metallica never broke up.
Not a reason, but agreed.
Even if you prefer Megadeth over Metallica, you have to at least appreciate Metallica because Megadeth wouldn't exist without Metallica.
