35 years ago today, Metallica released their first album called “Kill ‘Em All”. This album is one of the first thrash metal albums of history.

Four of the tracks in the album were written by Dave Mustaine. Unfortunately, Dave was fired from the band before this album came out.

Dave Mustaine’s son Justis Mustaine shared an Instagram photo on the 35th anniversary of Kill Em All. Justis shared a photo of a t-shirt featuring a modified version of Kill Em All’s cover image and implying that Kill ‘Em All album was written by his father Dave Mustaine. As you can see from below.

He also wrote a statement:

“A fan had this at one of the shows a few years ago, we had to bring it back with us! #Megadeth #Metallica”
