Joining Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer as one of the "big four" of American thrash metal, Megadeth represent the pinnacle of the genre, influencing generations of metal bands to come with their heavy and aggressive take on music and powerful political themes. The group was formed in 1983, not long after guitarist Dave Mustaine left Metallica, in Los Angeles, California, by Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson. The band's independent debut release, Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good!, led to a major-label deal for the band with Capitol Records. The exposure offered to them by a larger label meant that their second album, Peace Sells… but Who's Buying?, was a huge hit within the metal scene, and was the first of five platinum-selling albums for the band. Their triple-platinum-selling 1992 album, Countdown to Extinction, hit number two on the Billboard 200 (their highest-charting album to date), and launched some of their best-known singles: "Symphony of Destruction", "Sweating Bullets", and "Skin o' My Teeth." To date, Megadeth has sold over 38 million records worldwide. The band has been nominated for twelve Grammy Awards, and won its first in 2017 for Best Metal Performance with the song "Dystopia."
