Poll: What Was The Best Year For Thrash Metal 1983-1991?

Since it’s pretty clear many of us (including me) are living in the past (rightfully so)…what is your favorite year for Thrash Metal? You can choose from 1983-1991. Personally, I’m going to have to choose 1986 with classic such as Pleasure To Kill, Darkness Descends and Reign In Blood pulling much of the weight, but what is your pick?

MEGADETH ​- KILLING IS MY BUSINESS – 1ST PRESS 1985 AUTOGRAPHED BY DAVE MUSTAINE BIDDING STARTS $9.99

KILLING IS MY BUSINESS MEGADETH

Win An Autographed 1st Pressing “Killing Is Business and Business is Good” Bid Start $9.99

The back cover of this album was autographed on April 20, 2018, by Dave Mustaine of Megadeth when he debuted his Megadeth beer at the Rainbow Bar and Grill. This is the first pressing OG Music For Nations original copy from 1985. I am the original owner and I also procured this autograph. You can see the picture I took from the night he was at the Rainbow in the item description.

This album alone is worth 60 dollars and I haven’t priced the autograph in at all. That is why I’m listing it as an auction.

This is an original 1985 Music For Nations UK first pressing of Megadeth’s debut album. I got Dave Mustaine to sign this personally when he debuted he been at the Rainbow Bar and Grill in Hollywood, CA 2018. 

I doubt this record has been played more than five times. The sleeve has a small amount of wear/scuffs, but nothing excessive at all. When I was buying these in these LPs in the ’80s — I would dub a cassette to listen so that I would wear out the grooves, so the vinyl is in excellent condition and has been stored and comes with a rice paper protective sleeve

Title: Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!
