Top 10 Megadeth Songs (Ranked)

To celebrate the launch of Megadeth‘s new album, Dystopia, on Friday. I’ll be doing a series of posts about the behemoth thrash metal kings. There seemed only one sensible place to start, and that’s with a rundown of my Top 10 Megadeth Songs! I’m going to preface this list by saying how difficult it was to choose just 10, and then try to rank them! I considered doing 20, but it seemed far too much.

10. Dread And The Fugitive Mind

To kick us off, is a song from an album I’m not the biggest fan of: The World Needs a Hero, not sure why, just never connected with it. This song still took a few goes to really enjoy, but it’s so much fun to play on guitar! I love the verse riff, it contains so much space which Mustaine‘s gnarly vocals happily fill with short snappy lines. The change of texture for the pre-chorus/ chorus is really great as well: The vocals becoming more continuous, and the contrast between this and the staggered section before is great. Then I love how it seamlessly moves back into that aggressive verse again. The middle section begins by sounding slightly like Metallica‘s One, but then starts to make use of the chorus material, with the guitar solo just fighting its way to the surface, before erupting into that fantastic melodic solo. The song rounds off perfectly, varying the verse riff material to bookend the track.
