imo it's either the scorpion or rust in peace.they both have aggression and they're good songs if you want someone to know a bit vaguely what megadeth is about.both have great lyrics,choruses and great guitar work,something all the megadeth fans got used to

Peace Sells is my favorite... But I love to listen to songs like À Tout le Monde, Hangar 18, Countdown to Extinction, Symphony of Destruction, Holy Wars, Good Mourning/Black Friday, Family Tree, Skin o' my Teeth, In My Darkest Hour, Psychotron, High Speed Dirt and Archicteture of Agression too.

Rust in Peace. It's simply got the best riffs and vocals I've ever heard from Megadeth.

Megadeth have so many great songs that it is very hard to pick just one. So i voted for other. Looking Down the Cross, The Conjuring, Holy Wars, Five Magics, Architecture of Aggression, Blackmail the Universe, Kick the Chair, Sleepwalkers. I could go on for a while.

Looking Down The Cross. The whole song is just full of solos and cool riffs (especially the intro and final rifs)
My Last Words is runner-up for the intro and solo (3;24 - 4:00).

Wow it is always tough when people ask that question... It's hard enough choosing the best album.

I'm really surprised there weren't more responses including Youthanasia.

Trust, as simple as it is, is probably my favorite song.

The only way I think I could answer this question would be to categorize all of MegaD's songs and pick the best from each category

The thing with Megadeth is that Dave constantly changes the lineup of the band. So it is hard to pick a best song as there is no real consistancy in the band. I mean, as soon as someone gets replaced, the whole feel and groove of the band is altered. Which is why Megadeth are a very diverse band (You can see that as a good or a bad thing...) The best lineup in my opinion, and probably the vast majority of you out there, is the Rest In Peace lineup. And that lineup produced the best albums of all. But even then, with the same lineup for 7 years, the musical style was altered. I mean, from Rust in Peace, probably the most in your face, raw thrash album of our time, to Youthanasia which kind of adopted a more pop rock approach in the way the songs are structured, and most of all the catchy vocal tunes.. Dont get me wrong. I think the album is fucking wicked. But still so different from R.I.P. without even changing the lineup. So when these lineups get altered, you can imagine how different the ideas have been, coming from such a vast variety of artists throughout the years.
My favourite Megadeth song probably has to be Holy Wars. Just because of the sheer intensity the whole band can create. Close 2nd place is Tornado Of Souls, and Blood of Heroes in at 3rd place.
Either way, Megadeth are a brilliant band, no matter who dave picks up off the street to be in the band!
