Worst Megadeth Songs

The Top Ten

1 Losing My Senses

This song is absolutely horrific especially for Megadeth. It's extremely cheesy, uncatchy and awful as heck. - UltraLunalaX

God awful for Megadeth - NightmareCinema

Come on! This song is underrated! Get it off this list! - awesomedp900

It's painful to listen to this song. It's so cheesy and un-catchy.

2 Have Cool, Will Travel

I love this song why is it hated so much?!

Yikes... This song sucks... - awesomedp900

This song simply sucks! One of Megadeth's worst songs ever!

Crush 'Em is a cool song but this is pathetic...

UListen to Sample
3 Seven

Awful generic garbage - christangrant

UListen to Sample
4 Crush 'Em

Sounds like something which is played in merry-go-rounds in fun fairs. - Alkadikce

Why did Dave ever think this was a good enough song to release, let alone play live?

This is a shame from Megadeth. Risk and The World Needs A Hero are Megadeth's only bad albums, but this is the worst Megadeth song in my opinion.

This is Okay in my opinion best song on risk (Excluding Duke Nukem Theme which was a Bonus Track) - christangrant

5 Off the Edge

This song is pretty bad - christangrant

UListen to Sample
6 Enter the Arena

Crush em is in my opinion one of Megadeth's worst songs ever but what's even worse than Crush em is this song.

UListen to Sample
7 I'll Be There

This is actually among my favorite Megadeth songs.

It's a Pop song an awful one this is made by the same guys who made Hangar 18 - christangrant

I actually think it's the best song from Risk. Riek is still pretty bad though.

UListen to Sample
8 The Threat is Real

Hmm wrong - christangrant

Nope this is good
Never understood what makes this one of the worst songs of 2016 according to this website - christangrant

UListen to Sample
9 Burn! UListen to Sample
10 Breadline

Worst Megadeth song by far. Not even a rock song

The poppiest Megadeth song ever... lame riffs, boring solo and cringey chorus

UListen to Sample

The Contenders

11 Insomnia

You guys are stupid just because this song was on Risk it sucks? This song was kickass

UListen to Sample
12 Anarchy In the U.K.

Breadline and insomnia are from risk but its amazing this song isn't the worst but not a very good cover

This is a Sex Pistols Cover *Facepalm*

UListen to Sample
13 Ecstasy

Look Megadeth made a Pop song - christangrant

UListen to Sample
14 I Ain't Superstitious

I thought this song was alright - AdamDestructorJr.

UListen to Sample
15 Super Collider

Sounds like auto tune. It's just stupid and shows why the album is bad.
Also why did the person who commented even choose this song?
"A good song."
You can choose another then unless you didn't read the title!

I disagree. It's a really good song in my opinion. Only the video was a bit not fitting

UListen to Sample
16 Sweating Bullets

Good instrumental but as the visitor said, it's more like talking and the lyrics are childish.

I didn't realise this song was so unpopular. - AdamDestructorJr.

The music is very Black Sabbath/Metallica inspired, the lyrics are childish and uninspired, the way Dave sing the verse and his overall vocals on the track is cringe worthy and cheesey at best and don't even get me started on a the video,awful.

I hate this song because its more talking then singing and the lyrics are childish. Trust is pretty bad too. It sounds like a weak version of enter sandman.

18 Prince of Darkness

Oh come on breadline is a great song

UListen to Sample
19 I Know Jack

I know him too.

What the hell is wrong with the dude that created this list?

UListen to Sample
20 When

This is the best song on the album. - awesomedp900

Megadeth is not meant for cheesy lyrics and poppy choruses. A 9 minute shame

What this song is the best off TWNAH and why is isomia breadline and prince of darkness on here

All megadeth songs rule this list sucks

UListen to Sample
21 These Boots Are Made for Walkin'

That's the whole point! Megadeth Made a tradition of covering random songs on each album

UListen to Sample
22 Amerikhastan

Not counting Risk ("Insomia", "Prince of Darkness"...), "Amerikhastan" is the worst song in Megadeth history... it's such a mess...

UListen to Sample
23 Psychotron UListen to Sample
24 À Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free)


I already dislike A Tout Le Monde, but it really shouldn't have gotten another version.

Yeah, I can get behind this. A 2nd version Á Tout Le Monde is just unnecessary. - AdamDestructorJr.

25 The Beginning of Sorrow UListen to Sample
26 Black Curtains UListen to Sample
27 Built for War

It's complete garbage.

This song sucks so much and I hate the instruments on that song. One instrument is very annoying and makes me wanna cry my eyes out for no apparent reason whatsoever! Also, the lyrics are poorly written and make no sense at all. Built for War is considered the worst Megadeth song ever. Also, Super Collider is the worst Megadeth album since their 1999 album. Built for War deserves to be Number One because it's a poorly written and annoying Megadeth song released on a very bad album that was released in 2013.

28 My Creation

48 Symphony of Destruction

With this title, I expected some orchestral epic masterpiece before the first listen. What I got was an overly slow boring radio rock song. - Alkadikce

Boring song

Who put this on the list?! I'll kill 'em!

During the chorus, Dave sounds like he has a lisp.

UListen to Sample
49 Duke Nukem Theme UListen to Sample
