Greatest Hits: Back to the Start

Greatest Hits: Back to the Start is the second greatest hits album by Megadeth. It was released on June 28, 2005, via Capitol Records.[1] The title 'Back to the Start' is a reference to lyrics in 'Rust in Peace... Polaris' from Megadeth's 1990 album Rust in Peace: 'The day of final conflict/All pay the price/The third World War rapes peace/Takes life back to the start.' The cover art is an edited version of the Castle Romeo H-bomb test.

Background and release[edit]

The selection of tracks for the album was largely determined by fans, who voted on songs in polls on the band's website.[2] However, the inclusion of 'Kill the King,' a track originally released on Capitol Punishment: The Megadeth Years, was insisted upon by Mustaine.[3] To help promote the release, a new video was made for 'Kill the King.'[1]

Jason Birchmeier of AllMusic critiqued the album for being more of a sampler and having a more 'balanced' approach to the band's Capitol Records material, rather than focusing on Megadeth's first few records.[10]
