I'm just curious who you think is a better band for whatever reason, the music, the orignallity, what the band has done for music, or hell, simply cause you hate Lars because he is a money grubing bastard... whatever, just give me your opinions... I like Metallica more 'cause of what they have done for music... They are perhaps the only metal/hard rock band to ever completely modernise their sound and their music as time went on. For one, almost EVERY band will "sell out" when they hit a major lable sooner or latter, but at least Metallica Kept their sound Modern, and though I like the earlier stuff i can consider myself a true fan because i like all of their stuff. Megadeth is increadably under-rated I admitt. But, when it comes down to it, I like Metallica better.

It's to hard to choose since I really like them both. I been a longer Metallica fan so I'll go for Metallica.

As much as I love Megadeth....
...And as much Megadeth is technically better than Metallica...
Metallica is my favorite band of all times.
Their music reached me in times of joy, sadness, anger etc, there's something about Tallica that makes me feel really great.

(ALthough "The System Has Failed" kicks "St. Anger'"s ass from today till the end of time ;) )

METAL UP YOUR ASS

Go listen "Rust In Peace" from Megadeth for newbies, GREAT FUCKING ALBUM.
And for the Metallin00bs, check "Ride The Lightning" then "Master Of Puppets" then the whole catalog!

I do agreewith you 110% metallica_columbia about The System Has Fail vs St. Anger... However, I am not sure that Megadeth is a beter band that metallica because of how far metallica has come... how they were able to modernise their sound so well... though alot of people dont like that, i for one respect that... also as song writters i think that Hetfeild is a better writter than Mustane. but this is my opinion... anyway, i do think that Megadeth is under-rated, and hell yes, Rust in Peice is a badass album, and Ride the Lightning is my favorite Metallica album.

eh, you don;t really know the Bay Area scene do you?

Megadeth were around about a year after metallica. Dave mustaine PLAYED with metallica(and i have the demo they made!), but then they kicked him otu and stole his songs!

You think Mustaine wrote all the lyrics and partitures for Kill 'Em all!?
Hell no, he wrote all the solos in there and maybe helped a little bit in the lyrics, but that was it. They kicked him out because he was a alcohol and drug addict and it was getting out of control. Then Hammett came to the scene, and played all of Mustaine's solos. Mustaine got credit for the songs he helped to write.

And yet, its been 20 years and he still whines about it, and who gives a shit? Dave created Megadeth, one of my favorite bands. If he would have stayed with Metallica, maybe 3 albums later Metallica would disband, why? Because of the 3 Ego Guys: James, Lars and Dave.
Have you seen what has happened to Megadeth all of these years?? You could say that Megadeth is *only* Dave Mustaine, nobody else. That's why he went solo, that's why he ended Megadeth, because he was the main songwriter, the main musician the main head honcho, and all of the band members have left him.

METAL sucks. But Metallica is a good band that know what they do and they do it good. Except for all the rehab, death of they're bassist, anger with they're second bassist and general suckiness of the genre of music they picked. But they are actually OK (for metal).

Megadeth, hands down. I don't care what Metallicas accomplished, just because alot of people have bad taste in music, doesn't make them the greatest metal band. I can sit down for hours at a time and just play through every Megadeth album. I can't stand more then 5 seconds of James Hetfield. Megadeth's riffs are way more technical, take way more skill. Dave Mustaine sings while playing incredibly difficult rythm. Hands fucking down Megadeth owns Metallica. I can't even stand "One" or "Master of Puppets". Supposedly 2 of Metallicas greatest songs. In my opinion, Megadeths "Risk" album, owns Metallicas best. And thats saying alot.

Can't really say im familiar with Megadeth.. well I've seen em live once but didn't really listen to it. Was still deaf from Dimmu Borgir :P

What I can say is I do like some of Metallica's early stuff.. so probably I like Metallica more than Megadeth.

Don't be retarded. If we're rating the Big Four, it's Megadeth at the top, then Slayer, then Metallica then Anthrax. Hell, I don't even like Slayer much, but they're the superior act. Anthrax have their moments, but overall are the weakest. The 'Deth reign supreme though.

Metallica are a decent act, always have been (well, up until '03 anyway), but Dave's band have always blown them away. Kirk is overrated, Lars isn't half as special as he seems to think he is, and don't even get me started on the bassists (Trujillo is a breath of fresh air though, too bad the band's recent material blows chunks).

And I totally agree that, had Dave been allowed to stay in Metallica, that band would have never ever ever worked. Hell, Burton would have been the only sane one in the line-up. As much as Mustaine's a God, he's also almost as much of an "artiste'" asswipe as McGoatee and the Dane.

All I'd say Metallica has ever had over the 'Deth would be Hetfield's vocals (clearly superior to Mustaine's, although I have a soft spot for Dave's grating yowl), and even Hetfield is losing his touch. Lately he's been fucking atrocious.

And perhaps Metallica could be said to have more...listenable material, more memorable hooks and fills. I'd agree with anyone saying that.

But as far as a consistent career, Megadeth is the clear winner. Fact. Dave's had a few album stinkers, like anyone else (mainly his mid-'90s releases), but he always manages to offer at least something worthwhile. Always.

And anyone who argues Hammett is the better guitarist can go eat a wang. I mean, seriously. The guy's a functional thrash player, he certainly has chops, but Mustaine is truy something exceptional as far as mainstream guys go.

Megadeth for the win, it shouldn't even be debatable anymore. If we were talking individual album V.S. album, I'd say Metallica would have a few wins, for sure. But overall there's no goddamn comparison.

I fully agree with this. Also, Bruce Dickinson > Dave Mustaine > James Hetfield. So I guess this means that I like Megadeth better than Metallica. I guess.

And of the four bands Venom was talking about, Anthrax > Megadeth > Slayer > Metallica. But Anthrax is the only one of those bands I like.

Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax are the big-name '80s American thrash bands, who are often compared and contrasted with each other. The Big Four, man.

As for Llamas, you can't honestly say that Anthrax are the better band. I mean, they're enjoyable, but they're not exactly, um...good. In terms of musicianship they're totally out of their league.

Judge B, can I ask your reasons for seeing Metallica as the superior group? They've put out some absolutely classic tunes, no doubt, but they're not exactly...shall we say, consistent.

I personally don't like Anthrax, but you have to respect what they've done. Thier music has evolved so much with the times. Saying that mind you, its all mostly tripe, even if its modern tripe.

Metallica, so great riffs, solos ,singing and attitude toward their music, best record are the first 5, but load isn't bad either. James is one of the greatest rythm guitarists ever. Dave MUstain isn't so special singer, and their music is too much about solos and shit... which i don't like. offcourse its fun to doo some grazy soolo playin on "guitar hero 2" "hangar 16". from the big four i think it goes like this Metallica>Slayer>Anthrax>Megadeth and from the newest albums i think like this: We've come for you all>Christ illusion>ST.Anger, i haven't heard Megadeths newest album, because MD is not really interessting band.

No, you're totally right, hes majorly over-rated, still a good bassist. Definatly not grounds to claim Metallica being better than anyone though.

Cliff was a great bass player/decent musician. Cobain was a terribly sloppy guitarist (though Nirvana Un-Plugged has some nice guitar). But could sure write a mean song.

Really dude, what do you need to know about metal to say you prefer one band over another?

Also, you can't really be elitist when you only pretty much listen to "the tip of the iceberg" yourself. It doesn't work that way.


BUT, on topic: Metallica, I think. I've never actually heard a full album by any of them (well, except for S&M), but from what I've heard, Megadeth seem like a fun band, but Metallica just have (/had) a bit more depth to the songs imo. I can also say that Anthrax seem fun as well, but I've never actually liked Slayer.
