Buying the View - Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? - Netflix
Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? is the second studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on September 19, 1986 by Capitol Records. The project was originally handled by Combat Records, resulting in the original mix of the album being co-produced by Randy Burns. Capitol Records then bought the rights to the album and hired another producer named Paul Lani to mix it himself. The recording of the album was difficult for the band, because of the ongoing drug issues the members had at the time. Drummer Gar Samuelson and guitarist Chris Poland were fired shortly after the album's promotional tour for drug abuse making it the last Megadeth album for Sameulson before his death and the last for Poland until he reappeared as a session musician on The System Has Failed. The title track, noted for its politically conscious lyrics, was released as the album's lead single. The album's cover art, featuring the band's mascot Vic Rattlehead in front of a desolated United Nations Headquarters, was created by Ed Repka. Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? is often regarded as a thrash metal classic and as an album that gave prominence to extreme metal. It has been featured in several publications' best album lists, including Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die and Martin Popoff's Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums of All Time. The album has been reissued several times over the years. In 2004, the album was remixed and remastered by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, with extensive liner notes detailing the album's background. In 2011, the three different versions were reissued as part of the album's 25th anniversary celebration. All of them with the exception of the 2004 mixes feature new remastering.

“Good Mourning/Black Friday” is a two-piece song, which begins with an instrumental section called “Good Mourning”. Lyrically, Mustaine has described “Black Friday” as being about “a homicidal madman who goes on a killing spree”. With an excessive use of gory language and violent imagery, the song chronicles the acts of a serial killer. It was inspired by Dijon Carruthers, who was briefly the band's drummer prior to the hiring of Gar Samuelson. According to Mustaine, Carruthers was hanging out with people who were practicing occultism, and they inspired him to write songs based on spiritual themes. “Bad Omen” explores the theme of occultism. Mustaine described “Bad Omen” like “two happy campers who have stumbled onto a Satanic orgy in the middle of the woods” and then “they see these fools waiting around for Satan's blessing”. Asked whether the band members really believe in the subject matters they write, Mustaine responded: “We're aware of the subjects we write about—witchcraft, Satanic sacrifices and the like—but we're not condoning them.” “I Ain't Superstitious” was written by Willie Dixon and originally recorded by Howlin' Wolf in 1961. However, Megadeth's version is vastly different from the original. “My Last Words” is about a game of Russian roulette and the fear one goes through when playing the game. Despite being one of the lesser known tracks on the record, music journalist Martin Popoff said that the song was an example of the band's “fast thrashers” and an evidence why Megadeth were dubbed as the “fearless speed progenitors”.
