I love how most megadeth songs have some political meaning
Why the Megadeth vs Metallica argument they both kickass
Awesome song. Absolutely one of their best!
Kick a** song
I'm cleaning right now and this song is just making me go faster
Artdx1 i couldnt have said it better i am a huge megadeth fan but as a kid i waz a huge metallica fan but as they say young and dumb good comment pal keep em comin i like megadeth fans i love to read what they have to say

Marty is such a wizard on guitar
Rust in peace kicks so much a**!
Best megadeth album ever!! In my opinion better than that putrid piece of s**t metallica black album.
Dave is such an amazing guitar player. Totally underated
This song is thrash metal at it's best.
Megadeth's best song. And can we please put to rest the old Megadeth vs Metallica bullshit? They're both awesome, no need to hate on one or the other.
Why can't people be like me and like Metallica and megadeth both? But I saw megadeth open for iron maiden last year and they were great I can only imagine how good they'd be for a main show
Especially Lars and their sucky guitarist... . . . . . . . b u t mostly Lars. Lars, you need to stop already. Just quit dude. My 5 year old nephew can play better beats than you. Just...just quit before u hurt yourself.
This song makes me want to beat the crap out of that s**tty band Metallica while this song playing in the back.
THIS SONG IS IN DOOM 2, GO MEGADETH
Holy Wars kicks fxcking asses all day long
Regardless of album...Peac e Sells to So Far So Good etc...Dave got f**ked by Metallica... s o Did he public and Napster..... B u t Dave came back better
Awesome song!
I don't know, I think he's got a point... There are 1000's of people killed daily due to organized religions...
Fuk yea baby atleast megadeath kept it real unlike Metallica !!
warderict
Whenever that riff starts, I have to drop everything and listen to the entire song.
Best riff in history
Always loved this song!
Nas-teeeeeee e e e
Its like a fist to the face,MD kicks a**!

F**kin love dis song
I have been in love with Megadeth for a LONG time! When I was 14 I managed to con my mom into taking me to see them and it was EPIC!!!! Granted I had to stand on a bar stool to see them but still! And being the young 14 year old standing on a stool and head banging, they saw me! :D I tell myself that..... LOLZ!
The last 40 seconds of this song is so awesome.
I wish Dave would kick the crap out of bieber
Mercey Killings Killings Killings
Gotta admit this beats the s**t out of quite a bit if metallica of course the average metal head would disagree due to metallica turning mainstream
Last mistake!
:)
Dave is way beyond anyone in metal not just mindless rock

You gotta give Dave props for doing the lead singer / lead guitar thing so well. He's got some skills.
This song is nothing like the related songs, as all of those are actually good songs.
Among the best songs they ever put out! Came out around '90 and was light years from where they'd been. For a short while they were THE metal band...til Metallica came out with The Black Album & all its stripper-fri e n d l y grooves, and it outsold Rust in Peace. B**tards!
Nice riffage! I'm new to Megadeth but raised on Pantera, Slayer and Metallica. So now I know what I was missing!
Rust in peace is my fav Megadeth album!!! BWUAAAAAAAH!
@Robb, I always thought it was about a random soldier fighting in the holy war, however it appears it is actually two subjects, the holy war in Ireland and the Punisher comic book character.
It's an awesome song, but it's weird how it just changes focus. It's like they had a song written and then they started writing lyrics about Holy Wars... and then ran out of lyrics but didn't want to cut the song or make it instrumental . . . so they added lyrics about some random hitman.

I completely agree, this song is tha all time best thrash metal song of all time I listen to it almost once a day. It is truly an epic song. Dave Mustaine at the top of his game.
great song always one of my favs
good call--this may indeed be the best metal song ever.
