Reasons Why Metallica is Better Than Megadeth
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'tve existed if Dave Mustaine never left Metallica.
Who is overrated is a different subject. Things are simple - we compare 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.
Mustaine has a better voice, but Hetfield's voice fits Metallica better
Metallica's bad albums St. Anger and Lulu
Megadeth's bad Albums Cryptic Writings Risk The World Needs a Hero and Super Collider
No. The Mechanix and Wake Up Dead are better than Escape and Leper Messiah. Megadeth was better.
Yep. Except Escape and Leper Messiah are the worst songs.
Even Chad Kroeger from Nickelback is a better singer than he is.
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 problems. This is the reason so many members have been leaving.
Metallica are a better team with better relationships between the band members.
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 simpply acclaimed in many Metal communities more than any other Metal albums.
"With the album Risk they sold out more than Metallica with the Black album. At least Metallica didn't use disco beats" - Metal_Treasure
Megadeth is 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 then he was replaced by Jason, then Jason left and they replaced him with Rob
Megadeth changed their members a million times, but Metallica have been always almost the same band... everyone knows James, Lars and Kirk, everyone loved Jason, Cliff, and everyone loves Robert now. What can we say about Megadeth besides Dave? And even about Mustaine, all I can say is that he sings so bad!
This is kind of true
Not a reason, but Megadeth did break up once but get back together
But Metallica never broke up once
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
