“After getting fired from Metallica, all I remember is that I wanted blood. Theirs. I wanted to be faster and heavier than them,” Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently confessed to PopMatters.

The downtrodden musician quickly picked himself up and began recording ‘Killing is My Business… and Business is Good!’ during the 1984 holiday season. Dave Mustaine used the foundation of Metallica to one-up the band with pure velocity, cranking out full-speed-ahead tracks such as ‘Rattlehead’ and ‘Mechanix,’ along with the record’s title track.
