MEGADETH have just released the "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" collection, a 17-track CD and deluxe, limited edition CD/DVD set which follows Capitol/EMI's 2004 extensive eight-album remastering campaign for the band's catalog and the release of the band's tenth studio album, "The System Has Failed". The "Greatest Hits" tracklist, selected by fans in a poll at the band's official website, www.megadeth.com, packs 17 top hits and favorites on a 78-minute single disc, including "Peace Sells", "Symphony of Destruction", "In My Darkest Hour", "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" and "Sweating Bullets".
