Megadeth - This Day We Fight! Lyrics




For this I was chosen because I fear nothing
With confidence I tread through the dead of the night
Off to another war torn, far away battlefield
Wherein lies a daemonic enemy horde

On this day I decide to anoint my fists
Engaging them in the mode of power and war

Stopping at nothing that's short of fulfilling my destiny
Willing to die and I will, after you for what I believe

[Solo - Chris]

A desperate avenger striking fear in their hearts

Invading their dreams before the day even starts

[Solo - Dave]

Whet whit your blood, I sharpen my sword

No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day

Sent on an unholy quest, to reduce all those who resist
To the size of their shriveled up souls and scatter them like grist
I vanquished the strangeholds that the netherworld sets for me
The last request of my life is to die killing my enemies

[Solo - Chris]

Bathed in blood up to the horses' bridle
Its death to retreat, there's no chance of survival

[Solo - Dave]

Whet whit your blood, I sharpen my sword

No turning the other cheek like a coward
Come tomorrow I may lay down and die
But not this day, this day we fight!

This day we fight!

Strip the fallen heroes, finish off the wounded
Collect the spoils of war and send them back dead

[Solo - Dave]
[Solo - Chris]
[Solo - Dave]

This day we fight!
This day I fight!

  32. pkj77

    Peeps drop the Metallica is nothing compared to Megadeth its getting old

  33. Dream Theater Fanboy

    I’m starting to put Megadeth above Metallica. Because unlike them, they have still made a lot of really good albums after their “golden period” had ended. Yes, they’ve made some bad ones, like Risk, Super Collider and Cryptic Writings, but they’ve always come back better and stronger.

  34. Vic Rattlehead

    Only Megadeth constantly write great songs and then ignore it as soon as they release it.

  35. methevas2

    That intro!

  36. Zsuzsanna Kiss

    Amazing speed/thrash song!!!

  37. saiber 98

    The best of the 2000s

  38. Stevepwn Productions

    that was nuts!

  44. randall scott burress

  49. Justin McCown

    Definitely the best 21st century Megadeth album.

  50. Nicolás Riveros

    Don't try to learn this song in guitar if you wanna keep your fingers.

  51. Aiden Pearce

  66. Ayrthon PIREDA

  67. Julián Alvarez

    This has to be one of the best thrash metal songs of all time..

    Daniel Carney

    Goosebumps every time!

    jeannoel43

    And every songs of PEACE SELLS and so far so good...so what are better than them all.

    jeannoel43

    Saeed Rahimian

    This song is the evolved, accumulation of ALL thrash-metal, into one song.

    Bango McCrash

    Indeed this is where they returned to the business of killing...and business was good again.

  68. Mauro Quiroga

    Ehm what's your problem? Who gives a shit about rap/douchebag music.

    Eddie The Head

    @Kory Graphic oh my bad, the problem is I run into alot of nasty rap-loving hipsters saying things like af a lot, and it became tiresome.

    Yrok Kory

    @Eddie The Head Look at my channel, i even uploaded Megadeth songs, rap is for kids who think they're cool.

    Marcos Pootman

    Rap is for everyone, respect

    Eddie The Head

    @Markonce En Línea. I respect the Beastie Boys and 311, nothing else

  74. Hello Folks!

    MASTERPIECE

  75. MaxZoid

  87. Konstantin Kiskinov

  88. ΚΔ ΖΑΚΥΝΘΟΥ

    This song is about Lord Of The Rings believe it or not

    Chris Elyea

    +Konan l made from the line in return of the king at the black gate

    Neo_metallum1618

    Too thrashy for LOTR imo

    Rafael Nascimento

    It's based on Aragorn's lines from Return of the king, in front of the black gate.

    alex antonelli

    Fuck you

  89. rachida BI

    only guitar hero song i never won as a expert ... :tears:

    Carver

    Sudden death?

    Víctor Alarcón

    It's very hard

    Ben Marley

    Haven’t played guitar hero in years

    Alex

    @Michael Peterson Man my fury of the storm is literally better than my 'Burn' from deep purple

    Seyana Bennett

    I’ve played GHWOR and I honestly thing that Chemical Warfare by slayer is much harder to play on expert. Idk, I just don’t get the timing as good on that song as I do with this one.

  90. Dillonyaydillon

    What I say: I enjoy metal
    What they hear: I praise Satan as my lord and Stalin as my savior

    Mister Doomed

    Tell em Dave Mustaine is a Christian. Lmao.

    Tame

    In what country do you live where this is the case - because it certainly can't be the US

  91. xOWNAGEx1

    Broderick's lead tone sucks especially at 1:05

  92. Bass Hound

    this remined me of guitar hero wor. That was the best end to all of the guitar hero games. It was so satisfieing takeing down that big metal basterd.

  93. Bass Hound

    this remined me of guitar hero wor. That was the best end to all of the guitar hero games. It was so satisfieing takeing down that big metal basterd.

    Bass Hound

    @*****
    GHL has changed too much, I dont like it how there are six buttons side by side. I have tried it but i don't really like it. It is part of the series but i just don't like it.

  94. Tyler Arnettay

    my third favorite band.
    1-Avenged sevenfold
    2-Disturbed
    3-Megadeth
    4-Breaking Benjamin
    5-Metallica
    6-Three days grace
    7-Ozzy Osbourne
    8-System of a down
    9-Asking Alexandria
    10-Link in park
    Honorable mentions:
    Five finger death punch
    Tool
    My chemical romance
    bring me the horizon
    Judas priest
    Nirvahna

    Eddie The Head

    +Tyler Arnettay
    All bands you said are good except Asking Alexandria, Five finger death punch, Tool, My chemical romance, and bring me the horizon those bands suck hard donkey nuts. But Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Linking Park are, ok. Just ok.

    Tame

    Because A7X is generally considered a band only young teenagers listen to - i grew out of them but I wasnt a huge fan to begin with. I still like some of their songs though and I have a pretty refined musical palette so basically fuck people who say don't listen to xyz - but also never take any band too seriously or base the core of your identity on what band or genre you like.

    Eddie The Head

    @Steve Reptar I am a teenager, I could see myself growing out as well. I only like a few songs, I'm not a die-hard fan.

    Mister Meister

    Hell yeah tool!

  95. Wade k 21

    How in the hell did Dave Mustaine go from this to Super Collider? Still boggles the mind...

    Eddie The Head

    @Cyrekt they didn't lose anything, besides with st anger

    Roxana Amador

    Eddie The Head
    They lost it at the black album, 35% ballads.

    HaliniSnow

    Vincent Amador The ballads are the best songs on the black album imo

    Max Otto

    Mikko Rantanen

    “Should be”

    Holy shit. Their third best record

    Vic Rattlehead

    Some musician gets bored making the same type of music over and over, not just Megadeth or Metallica but many bands eventually writing different type of songs.

  96. Su-100 is better than jagdpanther

    finally a brutal song by megadeth.

  97. Shi

    EXPLOSIVE!

  98. Benjamin Breeg

    Quite a song, Dave... QUITE A SONG...

  99. Jorge Luis Miranda Vargas

    guitar hero warriors of rock
