Epic Rock-Episode 12:Megadeth-Peace sells..But who is buying??

“Peace Sells” is a song by American thrash metal band Megadeth from their 1986 album Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying?, written by Dave Mustaine. It has since been a constant at Megadeth concerts. According to David Ellefson, it became quickly apparent when playing the song live prior to recording the album that “Peace Sells” would be a hit. In 2006, VH1 ranked “Peace Sells” at number 11 on their list of the “40 Greatest Metal Songs” of all time.The song is also known for the distinctive bass intro played by Ellefson.

Happy Birthday Dave Mustaine

Lyrics
What do you mean I don’t believe in God?
I talk to him everyday.
What do you mean, I don’t support your system?


I go to court when I have to
What do you mean, I can’t get to work on time?
I got nothing better to do.
And, what do you mean, I don’t pay my bills?


Why do you think I’m broke? Huh?
If there’s a new way,
I’ll be the first in line.
But it better work this time.


What do you mean, I hurt your feelings?
I didn’t know you had any feelings.
What do you mean, I ain’t kind?
Just not your kind.


What do you mean, I couldn’t be the President
Of the United States of America?
Tell me something, it’s still We the people, right?


If there’s a new way
I’ll be the first in line
But it better work this time
Can you put a price on peace?


Peace,
Peace sells…
Peace,
Peace sells…
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
Peace sells, but who’s buying?
No, peace sells
Peace sells
