Released: May 15, 2001 The World Needs a Hero
With a revamp in management, label and a couple of band members, Megadeth comes back in a furiously strong offering. This album debuted at #16 on U.S. Billboard charts, and was marked as a welcome return to Megadeth’s more heavy metal roots. Mustaine’s focused musical vision and pessimistic take on the world in 2001 is fiercer than ever. The razor-sharp guitar shredding, snarling vocals and spitting scepticism cut like an out-of-control laser on The World Needs a Hero.
