Best Songs From Megadeth's Album Peace Sells... But Who's Buying


The Top Ten

1 Peace Sells

What do you mean I hate Megadeth? Listen to it everyday!

A song built with the fury of the sex pistols, the aggressiveness of early thrash and the originality of dave mustaine. True metal

I wanna jump off the window when I listen to this one its extraordinary out of this damn place

For me:
1.Peace Sells
2.Wake Up Dead
3.Good Mourning/Black Friday
4.Devil's Island
5.My Last Words
6.Bad Omen
7.The Conjuring
8.I Ain't Superstitious

2 Good Mourning / Black Friday

This song is easily the best on peace sells. The creepy intro, the haunting solos, and the brutal thrash at the end easily makes it the top on the album.

The greatest two and half minutes of serious masterpiece, good mourning, witch makes me to regard it as one of two best songs, including call of ktulu, I ever listened to.

intro among best metal pieces I've ever heard.
Perfect example of mustaine contrasting slow to all out thrash

It was hard to choose, but it is the absolute band-defining song for Megadeth, every metal fan should listen to this song in order to get into the band. - PeaceSellsButWhosBuyin

3 Wake Up Dead

Somewhat lacking in lyrics, but the music makes up for it and much more! Awesome song. - Element119

Am I the only one who actually can't stand this song?! My least favorite on this album

If we're honest, this song is up there with Tornado of Souls and Holy Wars.

I think Wake Up Dead is better than Good Mourning/Black Friday

4 My Last Words

Though it's starts of slow with a very melodic intro and leads in a straightforward manner, it's got a memorable riff and gar samuelson rocking the double bass along Ellefson's amazing bass lines, providing more than enough energy for Dave Mustaine to follow up with one of his best solos.

There's no "best song" in Peace Sells, each one owns but my favourite is this. Everything about it is interesting, memorable and badass.

Hard time choosing between this and black friday

This is one of my favorite Megadeth songs.

5 The Conjuring

Dude Peace Sells is my favorite Megadeth album and while I do like Rust in Peace, it took me a while to kind of click with the album, as crazy as may that sound. For Peace Sells, the first song opener got me immediately and song after song this is just masterpiece of an album. In my opinion this is their best album, while Rust is a close second. I think another reason why I prefer this album over Rust is because the Chris and Gar lineup was my favorite and the Marty and Nick is my second favorite. Its hard to choose a favorite for me but ultimately end up choosing the Chris and Gar era, both are awesome though! m/

This is a real good song. I don't know what its doing so far below. Actually I didn't like the song the first few times that I heard. But later something clicked and I was able to understand that this was a beauty of composition

This is what this album's about.
Peace Sells is great, but it's not as representative.
Wake Up Dead is a bit on the meh side.
Most of Side 2 is a bit indistinguishable at times, though still very good.

6 Devil's Island

My favorites are peace sells, wake up dead, black Friday, and my last words. But I voted this because I think it should be in the top five instead of the Conjuring.

Very underrated. The intro is so good

Devils Island is acculy a prison that is no longer running. In the song, a person is taken to Devils island to get the death penalty. Dave did a great job writing the song because he explains how there is no escape. In my oppion defenenly in the top 5 many top 3 on the album. Very underrated song. I wish Dave played it more often.

7 Bad Omen

This song is awesome. Deserves better than 7th. - IronSabbathPriest

8 I Ain't Superstitious

This actually has some very good solos
