Megadeth – Symphony of Destruction (Studio Version)



Symphony of Destruction is the second song on the thrash metal band Megadeths 5th studio album, Countdown to Extinction. The song is one of the heaviest songs written by the band. While it isnt known for its speed, its definately famed for its heaviness. The songs lyrical meaning depicts giving someone power and watching them grow.

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads aroll
Aroll…

Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

Acting like a robot,
Its metal brain corrodes.
You try to take its pulse,
Before the head explodes.
Explodes…

Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
Awarring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall…
Just like the pied piper
Lead rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony…
Of destruction

  12. Every 5 years or so I feel this song represents our planet and world leaders. Then the cycle starts again and I’m convinced it’s actually more representative of the current generation pf leaders. And so we dance like the marionettes, swaying to the symphony of destruction, over and over again.

  13. This song describes The CEO of The un united states.

  14. That guitar riff in the start is the most iconic beginning to any song EVER! A close second is Britney Spears "Ooops I did it again" starting beat (🀑)
