Released in 1992 and debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, MEGADETH's GRAMMY nominated release, Countdown To Extinction, is the band's breakthrough album that helped catapult the band into arena status. Countdown To Extinction is another step forward in the evolution and expansion of the Thrash Metal genre Megadeth helped create.
The album was also an important benchmark in the band's career in both songwriting and music technicality as they broke new ground and thrashed their way through the height of the grunge movement to mainstream radio and the MTV generation on their own terms with tracks such as "Symphony of Destruction," "Sweating Bullets" and "Skin O' My Teeth."
In 1993, Megadeth were presented with "The Doris Day Music Award" at The Humane Society's Genesis Awards for the title track, "Countdown To Extinction," a song advocating for animal rights. Other recipients of this prestigious honor include Paul McCartney, Peter Gabriel, and Crosby & Nash.
