David Ellefson

On Nov. 12, 1964, future Megadeth bassist David Ellefson was born into the world. Years later he’s known as one of the most revered bassists in metal. While he’s also toiled in a number of projects including F5, Temple of Brutality and Killing Machine, Ellefson is mostly known for his work with Megadeth and that is the focus of this Readers Poll. We want to know which Megadeth song from Ellefson’s two stints in the band is your favorite.

He began with the band back in 1985, first appearing on the ‘Killing Is My Business … and Business is Good’ and rocking every one of the band’s albums through 2001′s ‘The World Needs a Hero,’ at which point Ellefson and frontman Dave Mustaine had a disagreement over royalties that led to the bassist’s exit from the group. Over time tensions soothed and in 2010 Ellefson was invited to rejoin Megadeth. He went on to record on 2011′s ‘Thirteen’ and 2013′s ‘Super Collider’ albums.

As a member of the band, he appeared on everything from ‘Peace Sells,’ ‘Holy Wars … The Punishment Due’ and ‘Symphony of Destruction’ to ‘Trust,’ ‘Kill the King’ and most recently ‘Super Collider.’ There’s just a wealth of great songs to choose from.

Take a look at some of Megadeth’s biggest singles during Ellefson’s tenure below and be sure to vote for your favorite in the Readers Poll:
