Top Ten Reasons Why Megadeth is Better Than Metallica
The Top Ten
Cryptic Writings, Risk, World Needs a Hero, Thirteen, Super Collider all suck.
Actually, they were bad when they started. Peace Sells and their debut album sucked. So far, So good and So what was decent. It was only after the release of Rust in Peace did Megadeth finally became better than Metallica.
Tied for me. I love both bands equally.
Not Really - christangrant
That's the thing I agree. - zxm
This is the only thing on the list that has some Logic to y - christangrant
Sure, Metallica can be overrated, but Megadeth are no where near underrated.
Both are Overrated but Metallica at least didn't make Pop songs like Megadeth did on Risk - christangrant
Megadeth is not Underrated at all if anything they are overrated (They are still good though) - christangrant
Dave Mustaine is better than James Hetfield because James Hetfield has a terrible voice and I swear to god always screams "AAAH" obnoxiously and he just sucks. Dave Mustaine actually tries and James just screams. Metallica is garbage, anyway. The entirety of Garage Inc. is just trash. Their cover of Overkill by Motörhead is an insult to the entire genre of metal. James is trying to do Lemmy's voice, but James Hetfield already sucks at singing James Hetfield, so his vocals are at an all time low here.
Megadeth has better lyrics, too. "Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams? " Really? I know it's about drugs, but it's just so stupid and simple. Megadeth, on the other hand, actually has decent lyrics. "Welcome to our fortress tall. We'll take some time to show you around. Impossible to break these walls, for you see the steel is much too strong. (Guitar solo)".
My main gripe with Metallica is not even that the music sucks. It's that James Hetfield and Lars Ulrivh are ...more
That's a joke. Right?
I disagree with this one; but Mustaine is without a doubt the better guitarist.
Is this a joke cause that's not true at all - christangrant
Metallica just overuses wah-wah and power chords nowadays.
For this item it really depends if you are talking Rust in Peace Era Megadeth than yes I would agree Hangar 18 is possibly the greatest guitar work ever done - christangrant
Tied for me.
I think it balances out, but I do like my favorite Metallica song more than my favorite Megadeth song. But Megadeth is more consistent.
Not Really - christangrant
I wouldn't say that's true. Metallica had way better '80s Songs than Megadeth, but Megadeth's '90s, 2000s, 2010s stuff are far better than than Metallica's '90s and 21st century stuff.
Quality > Quantity, but honestly I like Megadeth more.
More Albums Doesn't mean better in fact some of those albums are bad - christangrant
Even if they have better album covers which they don't that doesn't mean they are a better band by that logic Limp Bizkit is better than Linkin Park because Significant Other has a better album cover than Hybrid Theory - christangrant
Seek And Destroy, The Four Horsemen, Metal Militia, The Call Of Ktulu, Ride The Lightning, Jump In The Fire, Phantom Lord, Hit The Lights, I think he wrote parts of Orion...
For example, the Four Hoursemen, Jump in the Fire, Phantom Lord, Metal Militia, Ride the Lightning and Call of Ktulu.
Eh not really - christangrant
What does this have to do with Music? - christangrant
How does guest staring on an obscure kids show make you any better? If anything it makes you look like a total joke (Duck Dodgers was a good show though. Not something I would watch all the time cause it's for kids and I'm an adult).
Staring on a T.V. show doesn't mean that Megadeth is better than Metallica plus Metallica has been on T.V. shows so this reasoning is really stupid - christangrant
Not a reason, but I do agree that was awesome.
He also guest starred on The Drew Carey Show. So is this really anything new?
Metallica has one too, they just barely use him, even though he’s really cool.
So? Metallica has one as well just not as well known - christangrant
This is by far the stupidest reason here.
James and Cliff are so much talented. So they have good members. - zxm
This is the dumbest reason on this list - christangrant
Wrong Is Cliff Burton a Bad Member - christangrant
... and Megadeth released Risk and Super Collider - christangrant
LuLu is far worse than Risk and Super Collider. Super Collider has 2 good songs and risk has one. LuLu? Zero.
I like both bands equally though...
Megadeth fans can be too like the one who keeps calling me many names just for stating my opinion - christangrant
Maybe I was (these comments were made a long time ago) but still this list is bad I like both bands although I prefer Metallica - christangrant
Oh so is Cliff Burton a Scumbag and plus by this logic Dave Mustaine is one too since he was also in Metallica - christangrant
It doesn't say that the current members (which they aren't except for maybe Lars Ulrich but he's overhated) in the list item - christangrant
