Peace Sells

Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?

Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? is the second studio album by the American heavy metal band Megadeth. It was released in September 1986. Originally, the project was handled by Combat Records, and this resulted in the first mix of the album. Eventually Capitol Records bought the rights to the album and a producer was hired to mix it himself. It was remixed and remastered in 2004 by Dave Mustaine. In 2011, the three different versions were released as part of the album's 25th anniversary celebration. All of them, excepting the 2004 mixes, feature new remastering.

It has been listed as one of the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die and is highly regarded as a thrash metal classic. It is the last album to feature Gar Samuelson on drums, and the last album until The System Has Failed to feature Chris Poland on lead guitar.
