Metallica vs. Megadeth – Readers Poll

James Hetfield / Dave Mustaine
Kevin Winter / Daniel Boczarski

It’s one of the most asked questions in metal. One of the ultimate battles for supremacy within the genre. Metallica or Megadeth?

Dave Mustaine formed Megadeth after being kicked out of Metallica in 1983. Ever since, the battle for the thrash crown has been fought by the two bands.

After a very long period of bad blood and feuding, Metallica and Megadeth finally made up and even shared the stage at various ‘Big 4′ concerts. Mustaine even performed with Metallica at one of  their recent 30th anniversary shows.

Moreover, Mustaine has recently talked of himself and Megadeth bassist David Ellefson forming a supergroup with Metallica’s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. No matter what, the Megadeth frontman has a desire to make music with his two former bandmates.

However, today we’re pitting the two bands against each other. You can only pick one, so choose wisely in the poll below:
