This ranking of Megadeth albums, ranked from worst to best, is to be understood as completely subjective as there is no accounting for taste. This is ‘my ranking’, and understand that I’m a child of the Rust in Peace and Countdown to Extinction era. Nevertheless, I’m very interested to know what your ranking looks like. Feel free to comment in the comment section below.
Megadeth has been characterised by Dave Mustaine’s persona since the band’s inception. Several line-up changes, feuds with bandmates and other bands, as well as substance abuse, have created a dramatic world around the iconic body of work of one of the most notable and prolific thrash metal bands in music history. Megadeth has released 15 studio albums in the time-span of 21 years and a handful of live albums. What impresses me most is the way the music was kept in context for over two decades, while progressing with the times.
I’m aware that Megadeth is one of those metal bands that metalheads either love or hate. I love them, and here is my Megadeth Studio Album Ranking. How do you rank the albums below?
1. Countdown to Extinction (1992)
