Megadeth vs. Metallica – Classic Cage Match

Megadeth vs Metallica Classic Cage Match
Capitol / MegaForce

Congrats to Megadeth, whose ‘Peace Sells’ bested Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ in a battle of 1986 metal classics in our inaugural Classic Cage Match. Megadeth will now advance to face another familiar and legendary opponent.

In 1986, Metallica┬áreleased their epic opus ‘Master of Puppets,’ the last album to feature bassist Cliff Burton, who would tragically die in a bus accident later that year. While the entire album is masterful, the title track, ‘Master of Puppets,’ is among the disc’s standout tracks, and takes its place in this Classic Cage Match!

Megadeth’s ‘Peace Sells’ takes on Dave Mustaine’s former band, Metallica, and ‘Master of Puppets’ in this battle of thrash legends. The winning band will advance to face a new opponent. So turn the volume all the way up to 11, listen to these classics once more and then vote for your favorite between Megadeth’s ‘Peace Sells’ and Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets.’

(This Classic Cage Match will run until Wednesday, Dec. 18, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
