Metallica was first!
and then came Megadeth
but they are both great bands,
there is no one better than the other,
however Dave mustaine is a better song writer and every guitarist megadeth had was better than kirk hammat

NO WAY. MEGADETH RULES!!!!Megadeths songs are more about problems about the world, like "Dawn Patrol", and "Peace Sells". And Mustaines Guitar skills are better than anyones in Metallica. I have nothing against Metallica but I think Metallica should go back to their roots. Metallicas song are mostly about Death, which is awesome. In my mind, Megadeth wins.

It's an opinion. I agree with the guy above completely. I've always though that. But yeah it's an opinion but I think we can all agree that Endgame rocked. But United Abominations was Omega!!!

I love both of these bands, they both have their ups and downs, I think Dave Mustaine isn't the best singer live. Metallica did go in a different direction, but Death Magnetic is awesome. So I will have to say Metallica.

Megadeth is definitely better in MY opinion, but Metallica is my 2nd favorite band, as much as I hate to admit it. Megadeth are definitely full of more talented musicians, but they're not as good as Metallica when it comes to writing appealing songs to more of a general audience. Despite this, Megadeth are STILL one of the biggest and most popular bands on the planet, but their worldwide sales of 50 million records still doesn't beat Metallica's 100 million+ records. Metallica is more popular, Megadeth is more talented, but they are BOTH the TWO BIGGEST thrash metal bands in history, above all other thrash bands in existance.

Which is the better band Megadeth or Metallica?

Metallica has a wider audience nowdays. Metallica got more popular after the realse of the Black Album which gained them money like crazy. Nowdays Metallica is everywhere, by that i mean I hear people playing or singing Enter Sandman every day. Megadeth isn't as popular as Metallica, but they have been my favorite for being true to metal for as long as I remember. Megadeth are a true Thrash Metal band... and you have to hand it to Mustaine from just getting kicked out, he started one of the greatest band in the world. Megadeth is the better band. Metallica is pretty good, but compared to Megadeth, they're nothing. Letting Mustaine go was the biggest mistake metallica ever made. Well personally i think Megadeth is better but they're both good. IMHO, Metallica is much better. Megadeth is my second favorite band of all time, but trust me Metallica is the better band. Listen to songs like Ride the Lightning, Sanitarium, Cyanide, The Four Horsemen, Fade to Black, Leper Messiah, The Shortest Straw, And Justice For All, Dyer's Eve, Battery, The Unforgiven, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Call of Ktulu, Fight Fire with Fire, etc.
