Band Name Origins:

  • Dave Mustaine saw it in a newspaper "the arsenal of megadeath can't be rid" or something really close to that. He used it as a song name, but then used it as the band name. He took out th "A" cuz he thought it looked cheesy with it. Submitted by: The Funt
  • The word "megadeath" means "the death of a million people", like something that would be caused by an atom bomb. They used the word (surely fitting to their subject matter), and just took out the "e" to be unique. Submitted by: xThrashxTillxDeathx

  • It could be interpreted as "Megadeath", which sounds rather unappealing for a band name. Submitted by: Cal

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Hangar 18"
The Funny Lyrics:
The military intelligence
Two words combined that can't make sense
Why They're Funny:
LOL...Even Megadeth isn't above making that old Groucho Marx joke!
Submitted by: Jonathan S. aka Jonaphantom
"Rust In Peace...polaris"
The Funny Lyrics:
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils
Why They're Funny:
I love Megadeth; I'm not picking on them. He's probably talking about the scent of a chemical or something of equal relevance to the song.
Submitted by: HeavyMetalGypsyGirl

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Run To The Hills"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Run to the hills
run for your life
Run to the hills
run for your life.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"A Tout Le Monde"
The Insincere Lyrics:
So as you read this know my friends, I'd love to stay with you all...
Why They're Insincere:
It's clear from the rest of the lyrics that he's sick of his life and wants to end it so this line strikes me more as sarcastic than sincere.
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
 

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Peace Sells"
The Insulting Lyrics:
What do you mean I hurt your feelings?
I didn't know you had any feelings.
Why They're Insulting:
Last time I checked, saying someone didn't have any feelings was rude.
Submitted by: Metalhead
 

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Set the World Afire"
The Dated Lyrics:
Distorted figures walk the streets.
It's 1999.
Why They're Dated:
This song was released in 1988, and although 1999 has long passed, distorted figures do walk the streets.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Mechanix"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Who would have thought you'd be better at turning a screw than me? I do it for my life. Made my drive shaft crank, made my pistons bulge, made my ball bearings melt from the heat!
Why They're Dirty:
The whole song uses not-so-vague mechanical metaphors for having sex, possibly in an auto mechaninc shop.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Sweating Bullets"
The Lyrics:
Well me, it's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Someday, you too will know my pain
And smile its black-toothed grin
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I come again
Why:
The whole song is about schizophrenia and mental insanity, and on top of that Mustaine sings the whole thing in his creepy "Mustaine" voice...freaky song to listen to in the dark alone.
