Twenty years later, Countdown still stood as Megadeth's best-selling album, and in many circles, their most loved material. Countdown to Extinction: Live is a concert document of the 20th anniversary tour that found the band playing the album front to back, bookended by a few odds and ends from other albums. While the premise seems pretty rote, the execution of the live album is surprisingly interesting
Two years later, Countdown went double platinum. The crazy thing is, I told Dave and the guys,'If Countdown goes double platinum, I’ll skydive. To celebrate Countdown to Extinction’s 20th anniversary, Megadeth played the album front to back at during tours of North America and South America. 24, 2013, the band released a live recording of the album from a December show at the Fox Theatre in Pomona, Calif.
American tensions weren t limited to LA, by any means, as the Gulf War was still fresh in people s minds, the state of the environment was becoming headline news, and President George . Bush was seeking reelection in a heated campaign season. I still think this was Megadeth's best lineup, at least musically - I know personally they had a lot of issues.
It was the group's second studio release to feature the "classic" lineup of Dave Mustaine, Marty Friedman, David Ellefson and Nick Menza, with all of them contributing to songwriting on the album.
Have no fear, because Countdown to Extinction is definitely an example of a band streamlining their sound, without a sacrifice in dignity or too much quality. It's no Rust in Peace; technically orgasmic riffage and soloing instead takes a backseat to making memorable, catchy music that you can often still play air guitar to. But Dave and co. were still on a songwriting high, so the music is mostly pretty damn good.
It was the group’s second studio release to feature the classic lineup of Dave Mustaine, Marty Friedman, David Ellefson and Nick Menza, with all of them contributing to songwriting on the album. Countdown to Extinction received positive reaction from music critics, who noted its politically oriented lyrics and simplified sound in comparison to their previous record. The album entered the Billboard 200 at number two, the band’s highest position ever. It eventually achieved double platinum status and became their most commercially successful album. In 2012, in recognition of the album’s 20th anniversary, Megadeth kicked off a 20th anniversary tour in South America, playing the album in its entirety.
