Tie between Megadeth and Metallica. I equally love Ride The Lightning and Rust In Peace. I equally hate St. Anger and Risk. Okay, maybe I hate St. Anger a little more...

I like the end-of-the-80's Slayer (Reign, South and Seasons), but I really couldn't give a shit about 90's/00's Slayer, except maybe World Painted Blood

I've never been able to get into Anthrax, though I like a couple of their songs.

Slayer. no question. But like Metallica4life said, I never really liked them in the 90s. Slayer just isn't Slayer without Dave Lombardo, and when he came back in 2006, Slayer released 'Christ Illusion' my personal favorite Slayer CD. The 80s were an awesome 10 years for them, and now that the original lineup is back, Slayer has been reborn!!! Slayer. no question. But like Metallica4life said, I never really liked them in the 90s.

Don't make me choose between Megadeth and Metallica. Each side of my family is into the two. Meaning my dads side is for Megadeth, while my moms side is more Metallica. So being brought up around both, i can't really choose between the two.
As for slayer, i can take em or leave em.
Anthrax. hmm, what to say? I've always like thier classic metal feel and vibe. The crunch their guitars a giving off always complements thier songs. My personal Fav Anthrax album is Persistance of Time.
And when it comes to Deth and Tallica, i have no favorite album, i jam out to all of them.

'DC fan

Metallica, The only let down was St. Anger, it was still a good album but lacked the guitar solos which defined Tallica's style, but they definately made up for it with Death Magnetic.
I never could quite get into the other three bands.

A tie between Megadeth & Metallica...

I like Rust in Peace & Master of Puppets at the same level (which is "An album that affected my music for good!") and like every sane person, I hate Risk & St. Anger.
I think that St. Anger could be a better album if a crappy nu-metal band like Slipknot would've record it... It's just not the demands of the Metallica fans.
Risk was Dave's really stupid attempt to become more popular, like the album's name Dave knew that the album could be either a huge hit or a huge miss...

I like also like Slayer, it took me time because of the trauma of hearing the roadkilled-moose-who's-being-raped-like guitar solo in the end of Raining Blood, but now I like their some songs since the era of Reign to Seasons...

Anthrax are a good band, I like classic metal so they have a vibe that suits my style...
And like everyone, I think they are 4th between the "Big Four", but their music is as great as the other 3's music...

SHREDDER_DUDE:)

Metallica from the start. I like them the most and even is St. Anger sucked, they remastered the song and it sounds brutal!!My favourite songs is Blackened, Ride the Lightning and Mater Of Puppets. As for Megadeth I never really liked them except fro maybe the song Wake Up Dead. As for Slayer I love Reign in Blood and Seasons in the Abyss, Those well kick-ass albums. Anthrax is pretty good. I mean they have awesome riffs extremely fast guitar solos (just look at the remastered Panic or Gung Ho). Joey Bellladonna was great with them and John Bush was even better. METALLICA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Megadeth. They were pure Speed Metal, laying waste to poser scum. Vicious, fast, METAL! This stopped around 1988 of course, not unlike the rest of the big four. Megadeth.

4.)Anthrax

Metallica is by far, the best. no doubt. megadeth is not what they were with friedman, and the new guy lacks soul. slayer, may be the most hardcore, but i think alot of people can write a slayer solo: fast, random notes from the scale in random spots, and no soul what-so-ever. anthrax shouldent even be on the list. the "big four" should be metallica, megadeth, slayer, and pantera, if dime were alive. so really this is just the big three and anthrax.

You talk as if the only thing that matters when it comes to which band is best is what their solo's are like. You also talk as if Pantera are Thrash Metal. Wat.

CrimsonBizzare

NONE of them are thrash anymore (apart from maybe Slayer). Best thrash bands are Testament, Kreator, Overkill, Tankard, and Sodom. Most of the NWOTM bands suck, but there are a few good ones out there: Gama Bomb, RsG, Blood Tsunami, etc.

But, if I HAD to pick out of the big four, Anthrax - thrash or not, are my favorite.

And what's up with people going: "Pantera [who, by the way, aren't even thrash] should be in there", or "Testament should be in there." - that's like saying S-club should be in the Top 40 because they're pop-ier than all of the pop artists currently in there. The big four is based on popularity. At the time, Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Shitallica were the most popular thrash bands, so they became the big four. The big four doesn't change. Exodus (even they are heading away from thrash) may be a lot more popular than Anthrax now, but it doesn't put them in the big four, as the big four is: the four most popular thrash bands IN THE 80s, NOT NOW.
