Stream Megadeth’s “Quarantine Playlist” Featuring Ozzy, Exodus, Power Trip and More

Published on:

For homebound fans looking for something to keep them occupied, entertained and handbanging during the social-distancing protocol of the current coronavirus pandemic, Megadeth have offered up a badass “Quarantine Playlist” for your blasting pleasure. The thrash veterans described the playlist as a “collection of songs to help get you through this weird and uncertain time,” adding, “Stay safe out there.”

Featuring 32 finely curated metal cuts, the playlist impressively spans eras and styles, encompassing both pantheon-worthy classics and under-appreciated rarities. There are songs from big-name heavy hitters like Ozzy Osbourne, Exodus and Suicidal Tendencies, but there are also bangers from more underground acts such as Carcass and Hirax as well as younger metal outfits including Power Trip, Iron Reagan and Midnight. Of course, there’s also a healthy dose of Megadeth tracks — from early rippers “Wake Up Dead” and “Rattlehead” to later cuts like Dystopia‘s “Poisonous Shadows.”

Megadeth are currently scheduled to hit the road with Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames this summer and fall on a massive, two-leg North American tour — no word yet if the dates will have to be changed due to the spread of the coronavirus. See the full itinerary below. Dave Mustaine and Co. are also expected to release their highly anticipated 16th album later this year.
