It is an age old question. Which of the four Gods of Thrash reign supreme. Of course, I talk of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax.

Each has their own strength.

Metallica has the song writing chops and cross over success (which some call "selling out")

Megadeth has the guitar heroics and magnificent musicianship

Slayer has the demonic imagery and subject matter that has influenced many of the leaders of metal today

Anthrax has it's extremely devoted fan-base (as well as the credit of creating Rap-Metal with the song "Bring the Noize" with Public Enemy).

But who is the best?

Let the ****ing arguments commence!!!!!
