Reasons Why Metallica is Better Than Megadeth
The Top Ten
Megadeth would not even exist had they not been made
Shut up. I'm so tired of people arguing that "Megadeth wouldn't exist without Metallica." Shut up. We're not arguing about that. We're arguing about which is better. So, this point is completely invalid.
This is important because Metallica did more for the popularization of thrash at the early stages of the subgenre. - Metal_Treasure
That has nothing to do with a band being 'better' - ryanrimmel
True. But Dave is still a good guitarist. - Userguy44
Except for the fact that Dave Mustaine was the king, and what was James Hetfield? Just a little table.
This is an off topic comment and doesn't explain who is a better singer and why. - Metal_Treasure
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. - Metal_Treasure
Mustaine has a better voice, but Hetfield's voice fits Metallica better - ryanrimmel
Metallica's bad albums St. Anger and Lulu
Megadeth's bad Albums Cryptic Writings Risk The World Needs a Hero and Super Collider - christangrant
No they haven't. St. Anger, LuLu, Load, Reload, and Garage Inc. are all awful, especially Garage Inc. The cover of Overkill by Motörhead is awful. I don't even like the Motörhead version (despite being a fan of Motörhead.) James is imitating Lemmy and he sucks. He can't even sing in his own voice.
Yep. Except Escape and Leper Messiah are the worst songs.
I agree, but Megadeth had better material in the 90s and 2000s - ryanrimmel
What does this prove? - ryanrimmel
There are no pop songs on Risk. It's a little different from their regular material, but it's not pop.
But Dave Mustaine admitted he "sold out" with Risk oh yeah and the original version of Crush Em has Disco beats in it oh yeah and just saying that's not the reason the reason I dislike Risk I dislike it because they could make so much better and yet they chose to do a more Radio friendly sound - christangrant
On risk their are Pop songs on the album - christangrant
Completely disagree. Megadeth has better lyrics, they are more political - ryanrimmel
Both bands have great lyrics, so it's a tie for me. - Metal_Treasure
Four Horsemen has better lyrics than Mechanix. - Userguy44
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
Taylor Swift, Madonna, Rihanna, and U2 have sold more than Metallica, does that make them better? - ryanrimmel
Metallica only have ten albums excluding Hardwired...To Self Destruct, 2 of which suck those albums would be St. Anger and Lulu. Megadeth have 15 albums and 2 of them suck those albums are Super Collider and Risk. Megadeth is better than Metallica in my opinion - KobraKid
It's not really a valid reason because this can't indicate who's better. - Metal_Treasure
This isn't a good reason - christangrant
Always had the same Guitarist (Except for the Dave Mustaine incident), Singer, and Drummer, but it was the Bassist that was the problem.
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. - Metal_Treasure
The first five Metallica albums are simpply acclaimed in many Metal communities more than any other Metal albums.
Megadeths best cover song was Cold Sweat and that was on Super Collider their 2nd worse album - christangrant
"With the album Risk they sold out more than Metallica with the Black album. At least Metallica didn't use disco beats" - Metal_Treasure - SoldierOfFortune
Neither sold out, megadeth tries something new and they've sold out.
THIS LIST IS TERRIBLE!
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!
So? They got back together, so how does that make Metallica have better music? - Songsta41
So what? this is not a reason.
Not a reason but agreed - christangrant
Whoever put his on the list is a moron. In case you're not aware, megadeth is an actual word. It means: "The death of one million people, typically by a nuclear explosion." Metallica isn't an actual word, so this point is invalid.
Umm, did a pop fan put this here? Because metal names are spelled wrong on purpose
So? that's not a reason - christangrant
So? music can be good complicated and simple.
