Today we celebrate another huge milestone in metal history. We're celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction, released on July 14, 1992.
Some sources say the release date was July 6th, while other sources say July 14th. However, on Megadeth's Facebook page, they posted the album cover and said that it was released today, 25 years ago, so I guess it's gotta be July 14th then.
This album was my introduction to Megadeth when I was 12 years old. However, the first time I learned about them was after seeing a picture of Dave Mustaine in an October 2004 issue of Guitar World magazine.
