In 1983 after vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine parted ways with the band Metallica, he founded the thrash metal group, Megadeth, which has since become one of the original and longest surviving proponents of the genre. Joining Mustaine were his neighbors Dave Ellefson on lead guitar and Greg Handevidt on bass. After auditioning several prospects, the trio eventually chose Lee Rausch to play drums. Eager to form a band that played heavier and faster than his former bandmates in Metallica, Mustaine chose the name "Megadeth" for the band, stating that this represented the annihilation of power. The band's first studio release on Combat Records, 1985's "Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!" led to their first first North American tour: the Killing for a Living Tour. This album, in addition to the subsequent albums, "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? and "So Far, So Good... So What?" earned mainly positive reviews, even from critics who had been averse to the metal genre up to that point. In 1990, Megadeth released "Rust in Peace" and joined Slayer, Testament, and Suicidal Tendencies for the European Clash of the Titans tour, which was an enormous success. Their fifth studio album, and the band's most commercially successful album to date was 1992's "Countdown to Extinction." The album entered the Billboard 200 chart at number two and went double platinum in the U.S. The title track soon after went on to win the 1993 Genesis Award from the Humane Society for raising awareness regarding the issue of animal rights. Throughout their long career, Megadeth has undergone several changes in their line-up, yet has consistently racked up huge record sales and toured successfully on a regular basis. Still recording today, Megadeth released "Endgame" in 2009, "Thirteen" in 2011, "Super Collider" in 2013, and "Dystopia" in 2016.
