The Top Ten

1 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave more.

"Metallica is rubbish! They sold out and nowadays they're cover band of themselves. Megadeth has always stayed true to Thrash Metal. Dave Mustaine invented Thrash. Megadeth is the best band ever! "

Let's forget about the fact that Megadeth also kind-of strayed from Thrash during the mid-late 90s, starting with Youthanasia (Which was good in its own right). Also, notice how Risk isn't mentioned. That album was worse than St. Anger and Risk was Megadeth's attempt at a "Black Album". Oh, Megadeth was the least influential out of the Big Four, and even then, they didn't invent Thrash (That goes out to Venom).

That being said, I still like Megadeth and I go back on them time and again. But jeez, their fanbase is among the most obnoxious among a genre that already has a negative reception for its many fanbases. - CrimsonShark

They Bash on Everything that isn’t Megadeth. They’re also completely bias. With that being said, Megadeth is my second favorite band, so I don’t hate them. - awesomedp900

Their more extreme fans are extraordinarily defensive, if you say one thing negative of Slayer, they’ll either attack you or unnecessarily overanalyze your statement all because you said something negative/critical of Slayer and they don’t like that. Honestly has a worse fanbase than Megadeth, at least Megadeth fanboys can be somewhat civil.
