While I love Metallica and all, there is one thing that I disagree with what they did. That is not inducting Dave Mustaine along with Metallica back in 2009. I think that was a stupid move on Metallica’s part. The reason Metallica didn’t want Dave Mustaine in the Hall of Fame with them ’cause they felt that Mustaine never played on any Metallica albums and for that reason alone, they felt he shouldn’t be in there. However, though… Mustaine did write some Metallica songs off of “Kill ‘Em All” and “Ride the Lightning”. Dave had some writing credits on those two albums.
Dave wrote “The Four Horseman”, “Jump In the Fire”, “Phantom Lord”, and “Metal Militia” which those songs are off the “Kill ‘Em All” record. As for the “Ride the Lightning” album, Dave helped write the songs… “Ride the Lightning” which is the title track and he also helped write the instrumental “The Call of Ktulu”.
Sure, Dave didn’t play on any Metallica studio albums but he helped get where Metallica is today with a song like “Ride the Lightning” which is one of Metallica’s biggest hits.
With that being said, I too think Megadeth deserves a Hall of Fame induction as well ’cause they are a great band. I’ve been a Megadeth fan for a long time and still am. I think “Dystopia” is one of their best albums as I’m always listening to it. Megadeth definitely deserves to get into the Rock Hall.
