Two iconic metal songs from the same year, 1990.
What do you like better and why?

Holy Wars. Way more adventurous and interesting (though I like Painkiller a lot). I actually prefer Deathís cover of PK to the original

This.

I do like Painkiller, but this is no contest. Not by a long shot.

Holy Wars. I love Painkiller, but good lord Holy Wars is on another level.

Dave Mustaine is trash as a "singer" - only a fraction better than Axl Rose.

Painkiller is epic AF.


EDIT:  Is Holy Wars a song or an album?  I assumed this was an album poll.

This one is a song poll. Holy Wars is the first song from RIP.

Even though I donít adore RIP like most others do, I think Holy Wars is the greatest thrash song ever recorded.

I'm not sure there's been a poll here that I've cared less about.  Flip a coin.  Have my dog pick.   Throw a dart.

Nah, that's not entirely true, but close:  With conscious thought, I pick Painkiller.

Then, oops.  I can still confidently pick Painkiller, though (even though it's not the best song on the album).

I'm a huge Judas Priest fan, but for me this was a very easy choice:  Holy Wars.  Not a close call at all.

I'm not a big fan of either band but there's a small percentage of material from both that I love.

Painkiller is completely perfect afaic.

Yep. Not a RiP fan at all, but god damn, what an opener. A great live opener, as well. Saw them bring the house down opening with that, H18, and Wake up Dead. I think the theme to Exodus was the intro music.

Painkiller, both the song and the album are overrated. One Shot at Glory is the only song from the album I really like, and Painkiller is only interesting live. It's one of the few songs Rob still sounds good on.

While Painkiller is a great song, HW... TPD is my all-time favorite Megadeth song.  No contest.

Holy Wars

I was very tempted to pick Painkiller, since that is Priest dialed up to 11 and Rob's vocals are absolutely perfect, but Holy Wars just goes off on insane levels and I agree that it's a perfect live opener for Megadeth.
