Megadeth Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Peace Sells….But Who’s Buying is the second album by U.S. thrash metal bohemoths, Megadeth and was originally released in 1986. The band, who were fronted by Dave Mustaine, found the recording process difficult due to drug issues with drummer Gar Samuelson and guitarist, Chris Poland who were ultimately fired once promotional commitments were met. Regardless of these difficulties, the band made a classic of the genre. LP on Virgin.
The story is now woven into the annals of rock history - Dave Mustaine gets kicked out of Metallica, forms Megadeth out of spite, blows most of the money that’s meant to go on recording the band’s debut LP on booze and drugs and then turns in a poorly-produced but still tough-as-hell thrash metal LP entitled Killing Is My Business … And Business Is Good. This ‘Final Kill’ version of the 1985 album sees Mark Lewis fix the shaky mixing and also includes 1986/87 live takes, demos and the long-omitted cover of ‘These Boots Were Made For Walkin’’.
