Megadeth and Metallica have been trying to out do eachother for years. Dave Mustaine was an Ex-Metallica guitarist, and made Megadeth to show that he doesn't need metallica. Metallica the more popular of the two, cut thier hair, and sold out, touring with bands like Linkin Park, Limp Bizcuit. Meanwhile, Megadeth's still going strong. Who's better? Would you rather go to see live?

In my opinion Megadeth is the better of the two. Metallica is a bunch of fatheads who have sucked balls since Ride The Lightning. Megadeth still sounds great, and has the Gigantour going, while Metallica is busy filming their next documentary about, whiney disagreements, and how the band is falling apart.

LoL, ok... I accept that's not been the best comment ever... It's just that compared to the last Metallica albums, Megadeth's are 'better' albums... They try to keep the same style (except by Risk and all those you said)... IMO, I think Megadeth's first 5 albums are a lilttle better than Metallica's first 5 albums...

I love both bands but these days I listen a lot more to Megadeth than Metallica.

So Megadeth.

I'll stick with Metallica. Sure they sold-out releasing crappy music for the masses, but then again, Megadeth did that too. Ride The Lightning is my favorite thrash metal album of all time, and also, the best album I've ever heard from the 80's

Could never really sell myself on Megadeth. Just one of those bands like Anthrax that I could never stand, though the personalities involved played no small part in that. Not too say Metallica are any better in that respect, but at least I enjoyed their first two. That said I've never been much of a Metallica fan either.

I too, could never get into Megadeth or Anthrax. So of course, I voted Metallica. I mostly like Metallica's Heavy metal material (...and justice, black album) much more than their early Bay Area Thrash stuff, I don't really like Bay Area Thrash, it's just honestly my personal taste.

I like them both about equally. They both released some amazing albums, and they both released some terrible albums. I guess the one thing Metallica has over Megadeth is still being a good live band. I saw both bands multiple times and Mustaine's vocals were usually horrible and there's just nothing going on on stage, whereas Metallica actually look like they're having a blast and still perform most of the songs decently.

I saw Megadeth in 2009 and they were awesome live. Mustaine's vocals were good too. Same gig had Slayer and Tom Araya lost his vocals completely and Slayer played pretty much an instrumental set.

Metallica were better when I saw them live but not by any great margin.

I also saw them in 2009 or 2008 and Mustaine's vocals were decent, but every other time after that they sucked ass. Also, Shawn Drover is the most soulless drummer ever.

Although I guess that's still better than Lars Ulrich hitting half of the shit he's supposed to.

Nope, like I said in the Dystopia thread. Megadeth are nowhere near as big as Metallica. Metallica sells out gig where 50,000 can attend whereas Megadeth doesn't even sell out way way way smaller venues where 10,000 people can attend.

To help your case, in 2010 both performed in Sydney. Megadeth filled a 5500 capacity venue while Metallica got access to and filled a 21,000 capacity venue.

Well I did not thought that fact, but in many cases Met fans are not metalhedas, just know band and don't listen IMO metal music on regular bases, but Meg makes better albums as Met does now, as new albums, songs, they kick more as as Met does, seems only what they can do is sold concerts, but same time, I think ppl who listens metal on regular bases would be equally on boat cases, same time I have seen old ppl in some wasp concers what did listen band in 80's but hasnot pick up anything after 90's ...

thing is,the way they both sound live i would not pay and go to see them, based on show only .Both bands really started to show the signs of the old age ,for better or worse . Metallica can live on reputation (and contracts/deals/etc) only till they decide to quit ,but Megadeth (although a bit better band in my opinion) cant do that now and i think we are closer to day Dave ending it (or dragging it to oblivion till nobody cares).

Considering that there are less and less money to be made playing metal in this age we are lucky we can still see them both still kicking and filling any 5000 + people venues .

Even though I enjoy Megadeth a lot more, my vote is for Metallica, bc they were immeasurably more influential. Don't even get me started on "Metallica sold out" as if Megadave didn't try just as hard (or harder) to pursue commercial success. Dave was never going to emulate Metallica's commercial success, but he did have the chance to be the guy, who didn't soften his band's sound for mass appeal. Too bad he was so obsessed with beating his former band for so long that he lost all of his integrity as a musician.

Metallica by a landslide for me. During both bands prime, Metallica made more interesting albums to me. I would take Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All over anything Megadeth has made and Kill 'Em All over anything except Peace Sells.
And I'm also one of those that can enjoy other genres than Thrash Metal, so I really love Metallicas 90's output a lot. I like when a band experiments and expand their style. The Black Album, while not as strong as the albums that came before, was a rock solid album. Load was in my opinion even better, more uneven than Black Album perhaps, but the best songs on Load I think are among Metallica's best. Reload was also good, but a weaker version of Load. And then there's also the terrific Garage Inc!
St. Anger and Lulu are terrible, but I appreciate that they were willing to take chances, and at least in St. Anger it is clear that they put a lot of effort into it.

Death Magnetic was a return to form for me, had it not been for the poor production, it would rank among my favorites. Hardwired is another decent album, though they are beginning to show their age.

Megadeth I enjoy for their prime period, which for me was until and including Countdown to Extinction (which was already a step backwards, but still interesting enough). Their experimentation during the 90's never felt genuine to me neither did their "return to form" during the 00's and 10's. Their music lack emotion these days and they focus too much on the speed and technique. I get easily bored by thier music.

Metallica is easily among my top 3 metal bands. Megadeth would probably still make my top 10 or 15.

Metallica probably has the lowest...lows? I think in general that they have better content overall. I like a few albums from Megadeth, but after Youthanasia, their albums ranged from bad to generic , overly-produced, new-wave of thrash sounding stuff. Aside from the production, I generally liked Death Magnetic as a whole, and Hardwired...To Self Destruct (ironically, taking a naming cue from Megadeth) was a respectable and enjoyable effort.
