Dave Mustaine and company. Megadeth!
Symphony of Destruction? Peace Sells?
Not a single one. I cant stand Mustaine's voice. Friedman is a great player but.....yeah. I caNOT stand Dave Mustaine.

I haven't listened to them since high school but this was my favorite...
Wake Up Dead!
If you're not a fan of Mustaine's singing, then this would also be a great choice... there's only a handful of lines in the whole song... it's almost an instrumental. An instrumental with a killer groove.
We used to do a song by them in my cover band, but I didn't like it.
Symphony of Destruction or something. Totally not my thing....
Well... while you nancy boys are busy washing your skirts... I'm going to look up a few more Megadeth vids.
Thats the spirit.
I like megadeth but I'm not a big fan of Mustaine. His singing isn't great but doesn't really bug me too much but his general attitude is really annoying. That said I like alot of their songs.
Symphony of Destruction
Use the Man
Killing is my Business and Business is Good
Wake Up Dead
And that one that goes:
Hello me, meet the real me
In my misfit way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possession
Hindsight is always 20/20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
You speak of mutually assured destruction
Nice story, tell it to readers digest
I just can't think of the chorus.
It was off of the Countdown to Extinction album.
EDIT: Sweating Bullets is the name of the song.
Symphony of Destruction
Die Dead Enough
I know this is rather "squirrel"... but I stumbled across a great live vid of Anthrax playing "I'm the Man".
There's also some bonus Iron Maiden in the vid.
Set the World on Fire
Tornado of souls - which has one of the best metal guitar solo's ever imo.
À Tout le Monde
Love the harmonized licks near the end, plus the "stutter" riff is sweeeeeet.

When my dad heard this one all my metal albums were banned from his house and he actually took away this CD, sat me down and gave a dramatic reading on how terrible the lyrics were (which were quite tame compared to other stuff I listened to) and then took the CD away from me, microwaved it, then threw it in the trash.

Oh and I saw them at the first Gigantour and the sound was so bad that I almost left in the first couple of songs... it was like someone decided to boost Mustaine's voice +15 dB around 1.1 khz. Right when I was thinking I might have to split they got things fixed... Dave had been frantically making gestures and whispering to stage hands and from there on out it was an awesome show, especially when he stopped between songs to berate this drunken shithead who just kept screaming MEEEEEEEEGADEEEETH ROOOOOOOOOOLLS thorugh every song, whipping himself around in a circle and trying to climb over people to get to the front. Dave taunted him while security snagged him and from there on it was even better.
They closed with Holy Wars... the Punishment is Due and they played it a good 20+ BPM faster.
The whole Rust in Peace album is amazing, but I have to go with 5 Magics.
I can't think of one good thing to say about Megadeth.
Not even... "Kanye West and Britney Spears aren't in their band?"
