Who do you like? Megadeth, Metallica, both or neither? I did a search but could not find anything like this and I was wondering how people on here like these bands. I like both but Metallica is better IMO.

It's a no brainer....Megadeth over Metallica....not to take anything away from Metallica....there first 4 albums were amazing...but I like almost all of Megadeths albums except risk, that one does suck.

I use to be a really big Metallica fan (Not much anymore) and my friends would always say how much Megadeth sucked and how much Dave Mustaine was a toss. So I listened to a few songs by Megadeth, and I find nothing wrong with them or Dave Mustaine. But I voted Neither, (Don't get me wrong I like them both) but I don't listen to alot of that style of music anymore so yeah. I'm more into Hardcore / Deathcore music now.

I chose Metallica, because they are the best! I've seen them twice and was never upset! Last show was 11/14/09 at Madison Square Garden. I was going to see Megadeth at the American Carnage Tour next week, but sadly they postponed it, because of surgery. But, I like how Metallica sounds, they sound more realistic to me. I like Megadeth, but they don't draw out my energy like Metallica.

Mustaine is a bitch anyway. Believes hes a God... :ass

Metallica. no fucking question.

one more time.

Metallica.

anyone who uses the 'Megadeth never sold out' argument is a straight up moron. you know why Megadeth never sold out? they didn't have the chance. it's easy to 'stick to your guns' when 50* people care about your next release. that's what it boils down to. St. Anger (while terrible) had HUGE pressure. The World Needs a Hero? not so much. it's cut and dry man, you can't sell out when no one cares*.
*hyperbole - obviously someone cares, just not on the same scale

Metallica has sold over 100 million records worldwide (wiki because i'm too lazy to get a 'real' source), while Megadeth has sold 25 million (wiki). other than the fact that Mustaine was in Metallica, how can you even compare the two?! They're metal bands, they shared a member and "shared" a timeline, but one of the bands clearly dominated that timeline and continues to dominate the 'head to head battle'.*
*i'm not saying 'more sales = better band', i'm using these facts to illustrate the difference in careers.

Here's the 'my opinion' chunk of my post. Metallica had 4 fucking amazing albums (Kill 'em All, Puppets, Justice and Lightning, not in that order) and some other mediocre ones. Megadeth had 2 good albums (Peace Sells and Rust) and a lot of mediocre ones. in the end, it's a matter of opinion. i get that, but to say the Megadeth is "better" because they 'stuck to their roots', is just ridiculous. Metallica, all the fucking way. not even close.

p.s. Mustaine can shred, but if you try and tell me he's a good vocalist, you shouldn't get to listen to music anymore.

p.p.s. i don't want to waste more time on this post, but CHANGE isn't always SELLING OUT. start a band, then try and write the same song for 5 years, go ahead, i'll wait. come back and tell me how you feel.

Both were pioneers in popularising thrash metal in America and both have had glory periods. Both have given a lot of opportunity to many musicians, look at the countless guitarists Megadeth has been through.

From a technical point of view, Megadeth is a clear winner they have stayed consistent in the technicality of their music in comparison to Metallica and that's even present in their latest album, Endgame.

However, I voted Metallica purely because I remember their stuff a lot more and am more influenced by them. Their first four albums were amazing all the way through. Regardless, if they made St. Anger which in my opinion (no bandwagon) was a stemaing pile of shit they still had the balls to stray from their old ways and had a decent comeback with Death Magnetic.

Metallica all the way!!! I love all of their albums .... i dunno why ppl hate on load/reload and st anger.
Load and Reload were great ..... and they had a hard time during the st anger era but it was still decent enough not to mention they have changed some of the st anger songs live.

Anyway, i like james way more than dave and the band is generally a band.

whereas in megadeth .... its megadave or simply dave lol

I just hate how members keep changing.

this doesnt mean i dont like megadeth .... i love them but for me there are better choices.

and for those that say megadeth stuck to its root are stupid because you have risk .... I really dont care if they stuck to their roots because some of my all time favorites are on black album period and after.

Slayer is my favorite band. But anyways, Megadeth wins for me. They're more unique. I mean compare Peace Sells (Megadeth's best song) to Master of Puppets (Metallica's best song). I love Metallica and all too but they are the MOST OVERRATED METAL BAND EVER! To be honest if Dave (The father of Thrash metal) was never in Metallica, then Metallica wouldn't be as popular as they are today. Metallica isn't even Thrash anymore.

This question always ends in some serious mayhem. This is most evident on Youtube.

Anyways, I picked both. I prefer Metallica, though, because Hetfield is such a fantastic and versatile singer. That guy is the reason Metallica is better than Megadeth in my opinion. I just don't think Mustaine is good enough.

Regardless, I love both bands a lot.

Really? No, really? What a statement. It's not like they wrote the quintessential metal song ("Master of Puppets") without Dave or anything. No no, even after that, Metallica was all Mustaine's work, surely, was it not? They just overlooked that fact when assigning songwriting credits, I'm positive. /sarcasm :rolleyes:

Let's face facts here: Sure, Mustaine did have a great influence on early Metallica, no doubt. But he did not have much to do with Metallica's popularity. Yes, they had cred in the underground metal world with Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning. But they didn't explode until around Master of Puppets in the metal community and The Black Album outside of it.

^There. That's so I don't have to put 'imo' in every sentence.

Neither.

Metallica:
Lars Ulrich is a shitty drummer and just a shitty person in general. He's a douche.
Kirk Hammett isn't that great of a guitar player. There are more keys than E, and all his solos sound EXACTLY the same.
Cliff Burton was a horrible bassist. Idk why everyone idolizes him.
James Hetfield isn't too bad. Like his vocals.

Megadeth:
A wise man once said, "Dave Mustaine is a fucking pussy."
Bad at vocals/guitar/anything else he tries.
Can't comment on the rest of the band because they're fucking nobodies anyway. I don't even know any of their names. In fact, I can't remember ever hearing a Megadeth bass line or drum beat, except Peace Sells and only because of RB2.

To all the previous posts ........

The main reason that master exploded was because of James and Cliff!

You can't honestly say that EVERYONE from both bands sucks (the guys that said IMO).

Anyway, most of them have got awards or some sort of recognition for their work. While i agree they are overhyped within the metal world ..... although metal rarely get recognition as much as pop/emo/punk or whatever is mainstream these days since there are soo many sub genres now.

Risk doesn't suck, but it's not a Megadeth record. It should have been used as a personal project, or under MD.44 ... Some of the songs on Risk are totally awesome, but it doesnt fit the vibe of the other albums they released. Im a Megadeth fan personally, but respect and enjoy both bands.

Off/On Topic... just because someone puts "IMO" after everything they say doesn't make YOUR opinion less douchebaggie. ;)

Mustaine was ranked #1 best metal guitarist ever by Joe McIver. Mustaine's lead and rhythm work are phenomenal. He's an amazing guitarist, both in lead and rhtyhm. I know it's your opinion, but he's actually really good.

Also, Kirk is pretty damn good, too. Satch student and he knows quite a bit of musica theory. Agree to disagree, though.

I saw that :P In the newest issue of Guitar World they list:
Mustaine/Broderick = Best Metal Guitarists, Mustaine = MVP, Broderick = 3rd Best Shredder, Endgame = Best Metal Album.

Ok Cliff was an amazing bassist, you have not seen any live video of him haven't you? He was better then the first bassist they had, and i mean WAY better. Metallica fell after he was killed. That is why he is an idol to most, even me, he is in the ranks of others to me. I don't know what shit you listen you can't say he is shitty if he made Metallica good for the first 3 albums which are the only good ones. At least you like 1 good band, Mastodon fucking kills.

People throw this around way too much. Just because they had an impact on the genre, doesn't make a band great.

I do, in fact, love Metallica, so this is a bad example, but people cut way too much slack for some bands just because they were the 'first' or the 'change' in the genre.

Today's metal is nothing like the Metallica that you're implying influenced it. Somewhere around the late 1980's, Metallica decided to venture away from what made them stand out from the pack, and they've never looked back.

Megadeth put out a couple bad albums (Risk, anyone?), but they've realized where they went wrong (apparently Marty Friedman was taking them down the more "radio-friendly" path Metallica chose), and once he was out of the mix, their albums have gotten better and better. I really feel that Dave Mustaine and Cliff Burton were the guts of Metallica, their influence was very evident once they were gone from the band.


That being said... today, Megadeth is better. 20+ years ago it was Metallica.

I feel like Death Magnetic sounds like some of their older stuff. A lot harder than their prior stuff. I felt like it was an amazing album overall.

As for Mustaine, he only co-wrote 6 songs, 4 on Kill 'Em All and 2 on Ride the Lightning. You're giving too much credit to Mustaine here. He wasn't the heart and soul. I also really like Cliff Burton, but all the credit, to me, goes to James Hetfield. He writes all the songs and most of the rhythm and harmony parts of Metallica's songs.

I thought Lars wrote most of their songs? While one guy might write a lot of their songs initially, they get fine-tuned when everyone else has their input. You can really see the difference once Cliff died and Justice came out. Not that Justice is bad, by any means, just a bit of departure from where they were before that.

Lars probably co-writes them, but, to my knowledge, Hetfield did most of the harmonies and rhythm sections before the '90s.

I won't disagree with what you're saying about Cliff. Cliff is probably the best bassist ever, in my opinion. But, yes, you're right the sound of the band went downhill after Cliff passed. "Death Magnetic", though, was a huge step in the right direction. What I really miss is music like "Shortest Straw" and "Hit The Lights".

I would hardly say Metallica have done anything for metal (unless you read kerrang).

Dave Mustaine wrote most of the demos with Burton and Metallica were still using songs Mustaine wrote even after he had left. Once Burton left Metallica entered fail.

Also don't forget the Hammett had to slow down the songs to play them.

Also don't forget the Hammett had to slow down the songs to play them.
....are you serious? Have you listened to Master of Puppets? Have you heard the numerous bands -- both metal and otherwise -- who cite Metallica as an influence?

You have no way of proving that Mustaine co-wrote anything past the 4 tracks on Kill 'Em All and 2 tracks on Ride The Lightning. The only piece Mustaine co-wrote that was truly great was "Ride The Lightning" and "Call of Ktulu".

And you can't discuss song writing in terms of "facts" because it is too subjective. Again, how can you say Mustaine is a better songwriter when 6 of the songs he co-wrote aren't arguably the most popular songs on either album?

So, I cannot agree with you saying that Mustaine co-wrote most of the songs with Burton. Lars and Hetfield co-wrote most of those songs as well.

Everything you've stated is either untrue or opinionated. You brought no real "facts" and just spewed bias commentary. Good job!

I think that's the only advantage Metallica has over Megadeth: Singing. No offense to Mustaine, but he isn't the most appealing singer ever. His guitar playing is pretty much perfect in the metal world, but he's not a great singer. Regardless, Megadeth is amazing in terms of instrumentals. He's not always a horrible singer. I really liked Mustaine in "Sweating Bullets".

I do think, though, that Mustaine is a better lead/rhythm guitarist than Hammett and Hetfield. Some people think Hetfield is the best rhythm guitarist, but I like Mustaine better.

No matter how good someone's guitar playing is I don't think it makes up for a weak singing voice. Hetfield is an amazing singer. Hell, I'm pretty sure his mom was an Opera singer, so it's in his genes.

The keyword here is "co-wrote." Other band members helped write those songs as well and they wanted to use it. I never said the songs were bad. In actuality, they're very, very good. If Hetfield, Lars, and Burton helped write those songs, what difference does it make? They shouldn't use good songs because a departed member helped in the making of it?

And 4 of the songs Mustaine co-wrote was on Kill 'Em All. To everyone's knowledge, minus Mustaine, he only co-wrote 6 songs. That's it. Mustaine's songs weren't on anything past Ride The Lightning.

If one of my band members left i don't think i could, it's almost taking credit for other peoples work.

The second album, "Ride The Lightning," came out in the spring of 1984, featuring riffs from Dave Mustaine and also Tom Hunting via Kirk Hammett. - Metal archives


The main point is after Mustaine and Burton departed Metallica went downhill drastically, it's not really a coincidence.

Metallica then won a grammy for "Rock Instrumental Performance" with "The Call of the Ktulu" taken from the "S&M" album. - Metal archives

And your main point is MOOT! Cliff Burton was always a member of Metallica. You cannot use a Metallica member as a way to argue against Metallica. Burton was the bassist and he helped Metallica achieve fame. Without Hammet or Hetfield or Lars, you think Burton would be anyone? Vice versa for all members. Metallica is Metallica because of the members as a whole.

Also, if my band mate was a drunk, a druggie, and had a bad personality, I wouldn't not include a song he helped me write just because he's being a dick. Mustaine got kicked out for a reason. Who cares if he helped co-write it. So did every other member minus Hammett.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine and Greg Prato of Allmusic said Metallica, "expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions", calling the band "easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s, responsible for bringing the music back to Earth."Sounds like high praise to me, but what do I know?

Wow somebody is assumptive, i don't like kid music i MUST be a krieghead. I listen to all kinds of metal, i'm sorry but Korn aren't even metal.

"expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions"I see no expansion on thrash i am afraid. I don't see any intricately structured compositions either, it's 4/4 with not much technicality at all. Atheist are a band much more suited to that description.

"easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s, responsible for bringing the music back to Earth."[ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallica#cite_note-Metallica_AMG-89) So not maiden a band that most bands who write original music mainly cite as an influence? Just opinion.

As for the awards i see mainstream all over this. Mtv LOL, billboard LOL. Of course Metallica are going to win with those kinds of nominees.

But would Burton be anyone without Metallica? Hetfield isn't a driving force? Neither is Lars? Look at the songs co-written on most of the albums. Burton wasn't the co-writer for a lot of the songs and it was just Ulrich and Hetfield. The band worked as a unity. ...And Justice For All was a fantastic album, I think.

And how was Mustaine the "driving force"? He co-wrote 6 songs out of the from the first two albums. That's 6 out of 18 total songs. On Kill 'Em All, Mustaine co-wrote 4 songs but Hetfield and Lars co-wrote the entire album, which is 8. That's two times more than Mustaine. On Ride The Lightning, Mustaine only co-wrote two songs out of 10. Lars and Hetfield did, again, the entire album, which is 10 songs this time. So, explain to me how Mustaine was a driving force? Hell, Kirk co-wrote more songs on Ride The Lightning than Mustaine coming in at 4 songs.

You know how many songs Burton co-wrote on Kill 'Em All? 0! He wrote a bass solo and that's it. On Master of Puppets, Burton only co-wrote three songs out of the 8. Lars and Hetfield co-wrote the whole album, again. And Hammet actually co-wrote 5 songs.

You also realize ...And Justice For All was nominated for a 1989 grammy, but lost to Jethro Tull in arguably one of the biggest upsets of all time. It's considered one of the most controversial decisions. Regardless, the album was a huge hit and a lot of people loved it. Commercial success does mean something! It means the fans loved it!

Because until a point has been agreed with i shouldn't have to resort to throwing another point in just to make myself feel like i am right.

You don't have to write songs to be a driving force, if you hadn't noticed the change even after Mustaine leaving then you really haven't been listening very close at all.

Mustaine was kicked out before the first album was released. So, all their albums suck because Mustaine was gone? He was kicked out in '82. Their first album, Kill 'Em All, came out in '83.

Ofcourse, Burton was a talent and his input would surely be welcomed I'm sure BUT! look at all the work Metallica made when Burton passed on? And Justice for all, The Black album...granted, Load and ReLoad can be seen as "Not the best 'Tallica could do" but still some decent albums. St anger and Death Magnetic however are two good albums, Magnetic especially.

Your basically only attacking James, Lars and Kirk here, 3 very talented musicians and like others have said... you keep talking about how much mustaine put into the band but look at the stuff Metallica made after Dave was kicked out, Master of Puppets is seen as one of 'THE' best metal albums aswell as Justice and the Black album.

Mustaine's singing definitely isn't the best (he's pretty awful live), but you guys think Hetfield's is better? His current singing style is one of the biggest reasons their music now is so unlistenable (is that a word?). Live, he completely ruins their classic songs. I don't know why he feels the need to add additional syllables to the ends of words.

But he is a monster rhythm guitarist. He is the king of the downstroke. Trying to play guitar the way he does is painful, especially on stuff like Creeping Death.

Not to mention a band is a collaboration of many people and they all should have a say, where in megadeth it really feels like its just dave.

I still like them but there is a reason megadeth is good and there is a reason why it won't improve (both are dave)

Really? No, really? What a statement. It's not like they wrote the quintessential metal song ("Master of Puppets") without Dave or anything. No no, even after that, Metallica was all Mustaine's work, surely, was it not? They just overlooked that fact when assigning songwriting credits, I'm positive. /sarcasm :rolleyes:

Let's face facts here: Sure, Mustaine did have a great influence on early Metallica, no doubt. But he did not have much to do with Metallica's popularity. Yes, they had cred in the underground metal world with Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning. But they didn't explode until around Master of Puppets in the metal community and The Black Album outside of it.
I love both bands. But I'm just more of a fan of Megadeth. Megadeth's bassist, David Ellefson, is my favorite bassist of all time and he's basically what got me into Megadeth, his bass playing. I'm sure everyone has heard the beginning of Peace Sells, but his best song is: YouTube- Megadeth-Dawn Patrol

and

YouTube- Ellefson Bass Solo

Him, Cliff (Metallica), and Tom (Slayer) are considered the three best thrash metal bassists of all time. And all three of them are on the "Top 100 Best Metal Bassists" list.

I also think Dave is a much better guitarist then Kirk.

I made a new post because the other one was getting too long.

Dave Mustaine is a fucking pussy. Megadeth sucks. Just because you think Dave is a "pussy" doesn't mean you have to hate Megadeth, but it's your opinion and I respect it. Dave's attitude has gotten better. In fact, Megadeth and Metallica are actually friends now.

So Tussel, Megadeth doesn't suck, you just don't like them (which is your opinion and that's fine).

Tussel, I'm trying to help you because I care about you (and I'm sure many other people do too).

So Everyone, just because you don't like a particular band, it doesn't mean they suck, it means you just don't like them.

And theres your lesson today everyone, from Afro Ninja :) Have a good day!

Probably no one is better than Geddy Lee. Arguably the greatest bassist ever.

Also, I agree that Mustaine's attitude has changed a lot. He's not so much of a douche as he was back in the day. Regardless, his lead and rhythm guitar harmonies is the stuff Gods make.

Metallica all the way. I lost a lot of respect for Dave Mustaine after reading a book about the origins of metal. I'm sure many disagree, but he just seems, frankly, a bit whiny to me. Kirk Hammett is clearly a better guitarist, and creating a band simply to try and get back at old friends seems a bit childish. I do like Megadeth, but the bases on which they were created is dumb to me. Besides all of that, I like Metallica's music better anyways.

Kirk is not a better guitarist. And Dave didn't create Megadeth to get back at them, I mean if I got kicked out of a band then I would've just started my own band as well. Again people, like I said, Dave isn't like that anymore.

Edit: Plus, I hate the fact that Metallica still uses Dave's music that he wrote for them and he never got any credit for it.

Depends on their contract, he must have agreed to "Anything you write is a band asset", besides he co-wrote them. And yes he didn't create it to be back at them but he did say he wants a more famous/successful band.

Yah he changed a lot, now they are "rivals" anymore and more like friends ...... he became a man of god as well.

Whilst wearing a Metallica T Shirt I will have to say I prefer Megadeth. Taylorxxx made some excellent points on the first page; Megadeth would have sold out if they were given the chance. Fucking obviously, who in their right mind wouldn't?

Mustaine would've also been a sellout if he wasn't kicked out of Metallica in the first place, and this stupid rivalry would've probably never happened.

I love both bands though. Here are my favorite albums by both bands in order:

Metallica:
1. Ride The Lightning
2. ...And Justice For All
3. Master of Puppets
4. Kill Em' All
5. The Black Album (I only like Enter Sandman and Holier Than Thou)

Megadeth:
1. Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
2. Rust In Peace
3. Countdown to Extinction
4. Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!
5. So Far, So Good... So What!
(Did anyone else notice that Megadeth's first three albums all had ellipses in them.)

Metallica is one of my favorite bands but they changed, haha. Ever since The Black Album, they're not really thrash anymore, they're just meh. I mean when I first heard Nothing Else Matters on the radio, I spat out my soda and said "Is this Metallica or The Marshall Tucker Band!?". I miss the old 80's Metallica :(.

Megadeth quite changed too. They're still thrash, but it seems like they're starting to move away from the genre like Metallica did. Ever since Youthanasia, they're just meh aswell.

Slayer, Kreator, and Testament are still the same. Hopefully, they don't change too.

Slayer is my favorite band and I really hope they don't change too. :)

I am not really upset that they changed, i mean things like nothing else matters/ fade to black / trust / a tout le monde are really awesome and stuff i can easily relate to. not to mention most of my friends hear one of those and then slowly become metalheads lol

Load/Reload/Risk were decent i dunno why people criticize.

Oh and that was the time when kirk started writing his own stuff instead of leeching jame's work, it had a few productive songs but i guess the band didn't like it and went back to their root in death magnetic, not to mention ROB IS AMAZING ON BASS!!

I feel like picking one of the two would be wrong. Both of the bands are very talented. Metallica is more main stream and popular among the public, but Megadeth is just as amazing even if not as popular among the public. I classify these bands together and they are both as good as each other. Let's just hope they both crank out a few more albums.

Because Marty is easily one of the best technical guitarists alive and that ever existed. He's an amazing guitar player. But, he's more of a neoclassical guy and that's why he left the band. I think Marty, in terms of pure guitar playing, is way, way better than Mustaine. Regardless, both play two different styles of music and are pretty incomparable, I think.

I like Megadeth more for a couple reasons

1. I think they made more metal masterpieces(Peace Sells, Rust, United Abominations, and not really metal but Countdown was great) than Metallica(...And Justice for All, Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning)

2. Megadeth is a much better band live. I have seen both bands (I was actually at the Blood in the Water Live from San Diego show for Megadeth) and Megadeth really focuses on the music and just general kickassery. Metallica puts on a fancy light show and talks about how successful they are and don't play the music as good as they used to.

3. Metallica are really quite whiny about about everything (Napster to name an incident). They also have a giant sense of superiority about them that just makes me want to punch each of them in the face.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but dave is a drama queen. He is one of my favorites but seriously, i used to hate him, but now he changed which is why he is one of my favorites now.

Who has more metal masterpieces? (that is purely opinion but, Master of puppets, One, Battery, Orion, For whom the bell tolls, Dyer's eve, seek and destroy, whiplash, hit the lights, lots of choices.) not so metal? Unforgiven I and II, Enter sandman, fade to black , nothing else matters.

This is all opinion so no point arguing over this point :P

Who didn't get upset over napster (it wasn't just metallica, even if they were they have every right to).

James just make a better feel to the set, when he talks "We are metallica, and we are a family because of the fans and without you we coulnd't have achieved anything" really makes you feel he appreciates the fans .... whereas dave goes "this ones hanger 18" and then just burst out.

kirk said, sometimes i do screwup, i agree with the angry fans :P

not to mention they all mentioned that if they were to stop being metallica they would just retire, they wouldn't look for another band (not sure about rob though)

The entire Rust in Peace album
"Head Crusher"
"Trust"
"Symphony of Destruction"
"Peace Sells"

What a show. I will say one thing, Mustaine doesn't really speak to the audience much, but he definitely gets into it. For most of the show, I was about five people back of Chris Broderick. Man, he definitely is talented. And he really gets into it. I locked eyes with him on more than one occassion.There's my mini-review I posted on another site. It was fucking amazing.

Imma go with the Dave on this one. He is a massive influence on me, and the General History of him and his band could bring you to tears. And besides, Megadeth Radio rocks. Metallica has it's good points, mainly in the Earlier years when they were shredding the masses to pieces but since then, they kinda died in a way. That's why I slide more over to Megadeth.

Like for me, Megadeth is better. Maybe it's just mine opinion, but everyone listening to thrash metal will say that Megadeth is better. Why? Cuz they are more technical. Just listen to their first album " Killing is my business ". In 85' when you would first time hear that album you would think " wtf is that?! it's weird, but wait! it's fcking great! check those riffs, they kill! ". Before them, there wasn't been any band with such sick riffs. And don't tell me, that metallica is better, cuz they sold much more albums (someone before thrown with that kind of argument). But in the and, there are even much more better bands then them :) (metallica/megadeth (for me)). Sry for my english btw. I'm not from english speaking country. :P

I prefer Metallica over Megadeth. I've never really liked Megadeth, and Dave Mustaine's voice is very irritating in my opinion. On the other hand, Metallica still sounds awesome today and saved metal in the 80s. However, I'll choose Motrhead over both anyday. :rock

Oooh...

I'm a huge Metallica fan, so I'm siding with them unquestionably. There is no doubt Megadeth is solid though, a friend of mine (who ironically got me Metallica tickets at one point) got me into them. Their early stuff (Peace Sells comes to mind) is awesome but IMHO the later stuff is meh at best.

Then again, everything Metallica did inbetween the Black Album and Death Magnetic deserves to be in a dumpster.

EDIT - Mustardstain and Lars are equally tools. Very talented yes, but both of them are tools. Mainly Lars. Shoulda just shut up about when Napster came along big guy.

Yes, it is. Total typing fail by me.

I was disappointed by the stance Lars took with regard to Napster. Although I agree with his position, it just seemed rough and was poor fan service. He should have just kept quiet and let management and his lawyers deal with it.

It is sad but true (see what I did there) but many people won't forgive them for that.

Not a problem for me though, because in my world, Metallica music stopped in 1991 and has remained perfect.

I also agree with the 1991 statement. Although I wasn't even alive, I love their music from back then.

Is this fact or opinion? Because I'm pretty sure you haven't an ounce of proof. It is personal opinion. If you are going to run around the forums bashing peoples opinions maybe you should just log out and forget where the log in button is located.

I forgot though, with people like you, your opinion is all that matters. You can't really change the fact that Metallica was great back then, and even if they suck now, us Metallica junkies can always hope for a great comeback.

You must have missed the part about them not being poor, they have money to throw around. Plus it's not like they make their huge cash on album sales, the real money comes from 2 things. Merchandise and concerts, and the vast majority pay for those things. Considering how huge Metallica has always been, it's not like they have problems selling out venues, or selling T-shirts, or patches, etc.
Plus money should never be a motivation to create and play music, it should just come along as a privilege when you get fans. By acting out against your fans with no money, because they can't afford to buy your albums, it shows where your heart is - In the money, and not in the spirit of your music (And in this case, the Brotherhood of Metal).

Bill Gates is rich, why don't you go to MS and ask for a free xbox. You'll get laughed at.

You really aren't making any sense. There are tons of people, including singers, that are rich and don't give their stuff away for free. Stop bitching and come up with the cash if you really want to hear music that you supposedly "hate."

Also with some CDs selling over 30 million copies back in the day, I beg to differ. You never see them numbers anymore. That would be approximately $600 million made from that one album on release with the prices of a new CD back then.

Edit: Just wanted to add. When you work hard to achieve something, like becoming a famous band, you deserve cash for what you do. No matter how rich you are.

I don't remember Bill Gates bitching about piracy though. Infact Bill Gates is known to gives millions to charities all over the world. He's also in a different industry that works much different than the music industry. I wish more musicians were like Trent Razor, where if you told him "Hey, I dig your music, but I don't make enough cash to support myself and buy your music",he'll give you some of his music. Mandy Lion does the same, and so do many small, local bands.
If small bands can afford giving away their music, then so can the big boys.
Think of it like this, if you give someone your music, and they like it,chances are they'll want to see the band live, wear their merchandise to show off their support and buy future albums. Metallica forgot their roots just because they're huge.
When you lose focus of your roots (Especially within the Metal genre), you lose the true fans that put you where you are today. That is what I'd call a backstab.

Here we go....alright, here's the deal. If I made something and have it copywritten, trademarked, pattened, etc., no matter how rich I was, I wouldn't be too happy with people stealing it. They (read: Lars) didn't go about it in a non-dickish way, but hey, people were still wrapping their minds around the idea of "free" music. I don't necessairly agree with everything he/they did against Napster, but I can certainly understand where they're coming from. To quote Mr. Ulrich:

We take our craft -- whether it be the music, the lyrics, or the photos and artwork -- very seriously, as do most artists. It is therefore sickening to know that our art is being traded like a commodity rather than the art that it is. From a business standpoint, this is about piracy -- a/k/a taking something that doesn't belong to you; and that is morally and legally wrong. The trading of such information -- whether it's music, videos, photos, or whatever - is, in effect, trafficking in stolen goods.Sidenote: I did sorta find your quote: "ULRICH: If you'd stop being a Metallica fan because I won't give you my music for free, then fuck you. I don't want you to be a Metallica fan." (Source: http://www.playboy.com/articles/metallica-interview/index.html?page=2).

Essentially, if you don't like Metallica enough to actually pay for the music, then yeah, fuck you. But I'm sure he didn't mean if you still pay for concert tickets, t-shirts, etc.
Their music still is available for free. There's this other thing called the radio that plays music for, get this, free! ZOMG! And it's been around for a long ass time. Also, nowadays, you can always look something up on YouTube.

Like I said, not everyone can afford buying music they enjoy, but why should that stop them? It's not a matter of "Not liking them enough to pay for music", it's a matter of "I seriously cannot afford to spend money on such luxuries, but I still like the bands music", and it's not like they're poor and pirating has driven the band to start auctioning off their million dollar belongings.
Plus most people nowadays hear about bands from pirating. They go "What's this band? I'll download a few songs", which can turn them into a fan, and then they will want to meet and support the band using their money (If they can).
Also, it's hard to pick up Youtube on MP3players, and it eats up alot of bandwidth if you would use it as your music source, rather then downloading it once.
Money should never - EVER - come between the artists and the fans. It's there to appreciate and connect with, not to make a profit off it.

Alright here we go. I'm 16. My dad isn't in the picture, my mom is on social security disability. Between the two of us we get about $2,200 a month. I couldn't afford to go to a concert if I wanted to. I have enough cash each month to buy some music if I want to. However I don't, I use youtube as my source of music. Now, considering myself rather poor compared to some people in the US. There are many of us who are too poor to make it to a concert, so concerts are also making less cash these days. This goes for memorabilia as well.

Anyway back to my point. Me and my mom aren't exactly "rich." I still don't bitch if a music artist refuses to give us their music for free. I've learned to deal with the fact that we don't have much money. Luxuries aren't a necessity. So really, if you can't afford to buy their stuff, you shouldn't bitch about it. It's your fault and not anyone else. Although it would be nice for a music artist to say "here just have the music I've been working on for decades", it's something they have worked hard on and deserve to receive money for it.

Truth is, everything has seen lower sales rates in the past 10 years. Metallica isn't the only band to have done it, and there will be many more in the upcoming years if our economy doesn't get itself out of the shithole it's in right now.

Money should never - EVER - come between the artists and the fans. It's there to appreciate and connect with, not to make a profit off it.
While it's always nice to get paid for your art, it should not be a motivation to do it. Music has been with us since before currency, before trade, before speech itself. Demanding that people buy your music in order to appreciate it? That's uptight bullshit, it really is. If people like your music, there will always be people willing to support it, and especially for a band as big as Metallica, so money's not even an issue! They demand money from people a hell of alot more poor than them, why? Because they're greedy, that's why.
Metal is supposed to be about bonding together, as a brotherhood. How are we suppose to do that if the very band we praise wants to split us into people who are worthy, and those who are not simply because of currency?
Fuck that, fuck Lars, and fuck Metallica.

No, seriously, he's obviously a great musician but I never really got into the music. Metallica FTW

i can quite proudley say that i saw Megadeth on Saturday at download festival....

now thats not what im proud of....

im proud that i managed to fall asleep in the arena while they were playing. yes i was led down on the grass with a Jaegermister scarf over my eyes as it was so damn bright as it was a warm day... but i fell asleep just after their 2nd song, and woke up while the next band were sound checking.

i was impressed.

Megadeth is much better. I mean c'mon, Load, ReLoad, and St. Anger were among some of the worst "metal" albums of all time.

Metallica is way better than Megadeth. The lead singer of Megadeth has a pusy voice, but the guitar is really good.

WTF? The singer IS the guitarist.

I'll give you that about St. Anger. The other two? Nope.

Aye, but he doesn't like Mustaine's voice. ;)

Both are fantastic but Metallica has a much bigger fanbase.

Considering that there are a bunch of different ways to compare and contrast both groups, I think Megadeth wins in the end for me. But Metallica is definitely not that far behind.

Both. Great music from both bands, and they both get pretty damn loud when i'm goin down the road and I have my windows rolled down, I have to drown out that god-awful excuse for music known as hip-hop somehow! Damn teeny bopper shit is so annoying.

Oh, I know that feeling. When I used to drive to my campus for classes, I'd always be blasting something loud and obnoxious (a la Vulgar Display of Power). It is very rare that I see a car drive by blasting something heavy (damned suburbs) so I feel I have to make up for that.

Both are very good, but I'd have to go with Metallica over Megadeth.

I second this. I'll admit there were at least a few on Load I didn't mind, but St Anger...blech. I do love Metallica's other stuff though. Just like Megadeth better. WOO MUSTAINE.

haha yeah I do the exact some thing. And i heard someone blasting music that was literally only the evil thing known as Auto-tunning. It was over done and all you could hear was the over auto-tunned singer so i blasted Dyers Eve by Metallica even louder, to piss him off. It worked :cool::rock
