Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. They were formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine's dismissal from his previous band Metallica. In 1985, the group released its debut album through Combat Records, an independent record label. The album's moderate commercial success caught the attention of bigger record labels, and they soon signed to Capitol Records. Their first major label album Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?, which is considered highly influential in the underground metal scene, was released in October 1986. Despite this album being prominent to thrash metal, the frequent disputes between the band members and the issues with drug abuse earned the band a negative publicity during this period.

After stabilizing their line-up, Megadeth released a string of platinum-selling albums, including Countdown to Extinction, certified double platinum. This album, along with touring worldwide, would aid in bringing Megadeth to public recognition. In 2002, Megadeth was temporarily disbanded because of Mustaine's arm injury, but the band re-established in 2004, performing without bassist David Ellefson because he had taken legal action against Dave Mustaine. Ellefson would rejoin the group in 2010, and has been featured on all recordings since. In the summer of 2005, Megadeth launched its own music festival, Gigantour, which had several editions over the years. However, the group has experienced some controversy because of its musical approach and lyricism, including cancelled concerts and album bans. MTV has refused to play two of the band's videos because the television considered them to evoke suicide.
