Megadeth Cover Songs

By: Troy Cole
Published: Friday, September 7, 2018
One of the great early bands of thrash metal, Megadeth has sold upwards of 38 million albums over a 35 year career.

From the first album 'Killing Is My Business...' to 2016's 'Dystopia', Dave Mustaine and company were never against doing a cover song. Here's some of my favorites:


"These Boots Are Made for Walking" --Nancy Sinatra
