I like both Megadeth and Metallica the same, my mom/dad listened to both Megadeth and Metallica when I was a baby.... full blast too. Unlike some kids, I didn't listen to very much Mozart/Beethtoven.... Heavy Metal bands like Priest, Megadeth, and Metallica was my Mozart!

and Megaduck.......  lmfao makes Megadeth sound cute.

Well said, max.  However, I do give Slipknot some credit.  If you want to see a cool stage show and mindless headbanging music, Slipknot delivers big time.  All they lack is pyro or severed heads.

Oh, why not?  Might as well put it over here too, in case you missed it in the other thread ...

Cliff Burton 1986

Although it was Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield that forged Metallica's sound from the start,it was Cliff Burton who kept them in a "metal state of mind" with denim & leather aesthetics and an F-off attitude.This era with Cliff is untouchable for Megadeth,I don't think Megadeth comes close to this time period of Metallica.
[Screamin' Demon] Saturday, March 07, 2009 4:07:54 PM 
Megadeth all the way
By the way...can anybody tell me why they call Megadeth Megaduck?
[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, March 04, 2009 5:32:46 AM 
The first 3 Metallica albums are killer, And Justice For All but the rest of the bands career sucks.
I hate all Megadeth.

There are a couple of main differences between these two bands which earned my endearment to Megadeth over the years more so than Metallica. 

Metallica has some memorable ones, and some classic albums over the years, but Mustaine was a true artist with respect to the thoughtful riffs he created. They contnued long after Megadeth became "irrelevant" in a lot of ways (post Rust In Peace), and I was just listening to Cryptic Writings the other day, and some of the riffs were still thoughtful and catchy, and displayed the fact that Megadeth didn't quite get "buried" by the sands of time the way Metallica did.

Some of Metallica's early gems usually had Mustaine co-writing them, and when you compare lyrical content album by album, Mustaine actually got better with time, compared to Metallica's complete dumbing down after ... And Justice For All. It's very difficult to match wits with Mustaine on numbers like "Holy Wars" and "Symphony of Destruction" and even the rare tunes like "Kill the King" or "Go To Hell". The only lyricists that I would place ahead of Mustaine, from a political side, would be Skyclad's Martin Walkyier and Anacrusis's Ken Nardi, and these last two are what I consider true lyrical geniuses of the genre, so I rank Mustaine in very exclusive company.

It may be awhile before I pick up a Metallica album again, but Megadeth is never too far away from my listening proclivities.

I liked Metallica plenty until about 1990....and while I still enjoy a lot of what they did from  "Kill 'Em All"   to  "And Justice...."  when I first heard Megadeth,  that did it for me.      "Peace Sells...."   was my formal introduction to them, and I looked far more forward to their newer releases than I ever did Metallica's.

Megadeth. Metallica was good until Black Album, after that they have only some good songs, but Megadeth still make great albums.
[Return_of_Darth_Painkiller_0870] Thursday, February 12, 2009 4:28:58 AM 

Hmmmm...Megaduck.  Donald Duck as Dave Mustaine.  Having Donald Duck singing Mechanix, A Tout Le Monde or Rust In Peace would be hysterical!

I like both Megadeth and Metallica.  Metallica's older stuff (pre-Load) is better than Megadeth in a lot of cases.  Vocally, Hetfield is a heckuva lot better than Mustaine was...though, I think the tables have turned against James when Megadeth released Cryptic Writings.  Mustaine showed everyone who doubted him that he could do as good as Hetfield in the vocal dept.  Megadeth has also never sold out and become a purely commerical entitey like Metallica has.
[paorcamp] Wednesday, February 11, 2009 1:45:40 PM 
MEGADETH!!!...I used to like metallica...actually it was one of the first metal bands I've ever listened to...but since they became another comercial product it lost my respect...I do like the old albums, and I love kill'em all, but that's it...and I love megadeth, I've liked their music since I listened to it for the first time, I have some complains about their concerts and other live presentations but it doesn't is one of my top 5...
[Maple Syrup] Wednesday, February 11, 2009 1:26:25 PM 
Megaduck... no no Metallica

You have not offended me in any way, my friend. And I did not mean to suggest that you have done anything "inappropriate". I was merely trying to help. No need for apologies and I agree with you!

 At the time I created this thread, I  felt it was appropriate. Maybe I could have just brought it up on another thread, maybe I should have. I certainly did not want to offened anyone.

The fact is I own all the Metallica studio albums, and I own mostly all of Megadeths studio albums ( I am having a hard time finding The System Has Failed ) .  The truth is I used to like Metallica, nowhere near as much as Priest, but I listened to them from time to time. Over a period of time,  I got sick of listening to thier music. On the other hand Megadeth to me is only 2nd to JP. 

I was just curious to see if anyone out there shared my opinion. I really hope you understand Deep Freeze. I can understand where you came from and I did not mean to offened you in any way. Thank you for a response to the question.

I like Metallica. Can't stand Dave Mustaine's vocals.

ICM, I do hope you will forgive me for what may sound rude but, perhaps no one has "weighed in" because it is really not something that required an entire Thread?? I mean, you could have certainly asked one of the other members what they thought of these bands in almost ANY of the multitude of existing Threads, no? My distaste for multiple threads is well known, so I am probably not the one to help you out but I really think you would have gotten a better response to your inquiry had you simply joined a conversation and asked your question.

Having said this, I am more of a Megadeth fan than I am Metallica, although I do like them both. I have old Metallica records but nothing new. I find that Megadeth is great but I am not a fan of "speed" for speed's sake, if you know what I mean? Anyway, I am a bigger fan of Megadeth.   There. Question answered.
[icecreamman] Tuesday, February 10, 2009 12:50:35 PM 
It seems as though no one is goping to weigh in on this topic. Sigh...............
[icecreamman] Monday, February 09, 2009 7:02:18 PM 
I am a HUGE Megadeth fan, and on the other hand I can not stand Metallica. So I am completely biased. I would just like to hear from some JP fans who they prefer.
