Peace Sells... but Who's Buying? is the second studio album by American heavy metal band Megadeth, released in 1986. It reached number 76 on the Billboard 200 charts in 1986. It is one of Megadeth's most successful albums.

The album's cover makes an ironic statement about the Cold War. On the backdrop of a red and orange sky, it shows the United Nations headquarters soon after a nuclear attack. In the foreground is the band's mascot, Vic Rattlehead, who is leaning against a sign reading "For Sale" ("Vic Realtors" appearing in some copies), implying that the United Nations is for sale. The cover and the title suggest that while peace is a popular theme, if it were sold as a commodity, no one would buy it.

It became the sixth full album released as DLC for game_rockband Rock Band on September 16th, 2008. The album included 7 tracks, excluding the song Song_RB2_PeaceSells Peace Sells, which is already included on the game_rockband2 Rock Band 2 game disc. The album is available on Xbox Live and PSN, costing 880msp ($10.99) or 160msp ($1.99) for each track individually.

The album was announced on August 28th as one of the 6 full album downloads Harmonix promised by the end of 2008.


A large majority of players agree that Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? is the hardest album/track pack to be released as downloadable content to date. Every song is rated tier 9 on guitar on game_rockband Rock Band (although they do not all transfer to tier 6 in game_rockband2 Rock Band 2). The guitar and bass charts are also considered to be very fun and challenging by many players. The guitar charts consist of face-melting riffs, rapid strumming, and hard solos. The song I Ain't Superstitious, for example, has a section almost reaching 19nps.

Drums on this album are equally as difficult. Every song may not be final tier, but almost any game_rockband Rock Band player would agree that this pack contains some of the hardest drums songs this game has ever seen. Unlike guitar and bass, many players disliked the extreme difficulty of the drums on this album. Every single song has at least one very fast double bass section. Many people also complained about how when charting bass drums on these charts, they charted the kick that was off-beat with the snare/cymbals, making some parts even more difficult.

While drums, guitar, and bass prove the ultimate challenge, the vocals on this album are somewhat lacking in difficulty and fun factor in many players minds. Many consist of long percussion sections, and little singing. However, the general Scorehero population still agrees that Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? is one of the hardest DLC packs to come out.
