    A couple weeks after revealing they’d be unleashing a greatest-hits compilation called Warheads on Foreheads, Megadeth have detailed the expansive tracklist for the 35-song collection, which is actually more of an anthology than a simple “best-of” release.

    Warheads on Foreheads, which arrives on March 22nd, is available as a 3-CD or 4-LP 180-gram vinyl collection, with tracks spanning from Megadeth’s debut album, Killing Is My Business … And Business Is Good, through their most recent disc, 2016’s Dystopia, which earned the thrash metal legends their first-ever Grammy award for its title track. The tracklist was curated by frontman Dave Mustaine himself.

    “Thirty-five years ago I chose the name Megadeth for my band and I see these songs as the most efficient weapons in the band’s arsenal,” said Mustaine in a press release, adding, “Warheads on Foreheads is a U.S. military term for targeting efficiency; it’s all about using the right tool for the job and these tracks were created for maximum destruction (or stopping power, or something else!)”

    Mustaine, of course, formed Megadeth after being ousted from Metallica in 1983. Along the way, the band has released such classic albums as Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? and Rust in Peace, among others.

    Both the 3-CD and 4-LP editions are available via various outlets at this link, while a limited-edition metallic silver vinyl version is available exclusively at this location, along with several bundle options.

    Megadeth are currently working on their 16th album, which is expected to be released sometime in 2019. The band also is reissuing 2001’s The World Needs a Hero and 2004’s The System Has Failed next month.
