The Best Songs on Megadeth's Album 'The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead!'

Have you listened to Megadeth's highly-anticipated sixteenth studio album The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! yet?! Released six and a half years after their album Dystopia through Tradecraft and Universal Music Enterprises, Megadeth's latest record captures their signature sound in a fresh, but also darker manner over a thrash metal fourteen-song track list. Megadeth's frontman Dave Mustaine co-wrote and co-produced every song, featuring significant creative direction from fellow bandmate Kiko Loureiro and a debut percussive performance from the band's newest drummer Dirk Verbeuren. The electrifying guitar solos are some of the band's most hardcore instrumentals to date, providing listeners with Guitar Hero nostalgia across their entire LP.

Some of the album's top songs include “Night Stalkers (feat. Ice-T),” “Soldier On!”, “We'll Be Back,” “This Planet's On Fire (Burn In Hell) [feat. Sammy Hagar],” “Célebutante,” “Killing Time,” and of course its title song ”The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”.

How do the album's tracks compare to Megadeth's greatest previous works? Which of these bangers will surpass one billion streams? Vote up the best songs on The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!, and vote down the tracks that don't live up to Megadeth's top singles.

    We'll Be Back

    Best Lyrics:

    The time is right to exact my revenge
    Stealing enemy blood, I will fight to the end
    No more lying in wait just to even the score
    There's a place to invade, now it's time for war

    I'm a soldier of fortune, of torture and pain
    I bash in your skull until no teeth remain
    The most deadly weapon pulverizing your head
    With each crushing blow how you wish you were dead

    The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!

    Best Lyrics:

    The sweet smell of rosies, a pocketful of posies
    You can't mask the fragrance of death in their beds
    There's typhus in the air, and ashes everywhere
    Amongst the sick, the dying, and the dead

    Feral creatures feasting on the dead
    Devour rancid human meat
    Death and sickness permeate their bones
    Rich or poor, they're dragged through the streets

    Open up your eyes, so you can see
    All the sick, the dying, and the dead

    Dogs Of Chernobyl

    Best Lyrics:

    I see your face, wherever I turn
    There's blood on my lips, as my eyes start to burn
    You vanished, and left me behind
    Like one of the dogs of Chernobyl
    Where did you go?

    Nuclear winter is here
    Reactor four's still belching clouds
    There's no one left to hear a sound

    Night Stalkers (feat. Ice-T)

    Best Lyrics:

    Concealed in the night from the light of the moon
    Undetected between the heavens, the stars and the seas
    They seize the night when it's dark, like inside a tomb
    Faintly, their flat black body armor gleams, light it up

    From verdict, to deliverance, to retribution
    To the very last beat of a dead man's pulse
    You can hear the thunder roll, you can hear the engines roar
    It causes the ground to quake, to buck and convulse
