Dave Mustaine began his career with the band Metallica and co-wrote four songs for their debut album in 1983. Mustaine later left Metallica to form the band Megadeth along with bass player Dave Ellefson, Slayer guitarist Kerry King, and drummer Lee Rash. The band was to go through a few members until finally in 1990 Marty Friedman and Nick Menza came on board as guitarist and drummer. Megadeth's first real hit was "Anarchy in the UK" with the Sex Pistols. It wasn't until the thematic album "Countdown to Extinction" with its more melodic execution than previous albums and hit songs of impending ecological disaster that the band saw a Top 20 hit. Mustaine and his band, along with the likes of Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, continue to be a dominating force in the genre of heavy metal.
