The Four Horsemen because of the section between 3:27 and 4:29, even though those fuckers never play that section of the song live! :mad::mad::mad::wtf:

Seriously, what the fuck was even the point in recording that part?

I love both alot, but I'm gonna have to say Horsemen because the lyrics are better and the added mid-section. I also like the way Kirk plays the end of the Mustaine solo.

Mechanix is boring, as is 90% of Megadeth.

The Four Horsemen, and I can't believe this is even a fucking debate, or that anyone would choose Mechanix. This is not a close call for me.

I think I've gotta be the only one who doesn't care either way. I really have absolutely no preference and don't really care.

The Four Horsemen is boring and slow and the middle section feels more random than anything. Mechanix is in your face. Not to mention FUCK YEAH! :bliss:

Disagree strongly. :hmm:

Now, on the whole, I like Megadeth better than Metallica, and I might even like Killing Is My Business more than Kill 'em All, but in this particular comparison, I'm looking at the best song on Kill 'em All and the second-worst song on KIMB. No contest.

You know, I honestly don't like Megadeth. KIMB and PS are pretty great, but the rest, not at all. And Metallica's first few are absolutely amazing.

You're looking at Whiplash and Chosen Ones?

Enh. Ride is better than Peace Sells. No filler (the Willie Dixon cover). It's equal with Kill Em All, maybe a hair better, but it definitely smokes everything else.

I also think a Metallica song vs. a Megadeth song is a pretty shitty litmus test. :tongue:

3. Ride The Lightning (just barely brosef)
4. Master Of Puppets
5. Kill 'Em All
6. ...And Justice For All
7. Killing Is My Business...and Business Is Good!
