From the “For What It’s Worth” bin at the store, Metacritic’s users named Megadeth’s 2013 release Super Collider the Worst Album of the Year, coming in with a score of 38. (Metacritic is like Rotten Tomatoes for music, curating scores from “notable sources” across the web.) The Metacritic score is based on a scale of 0-100, with 0 being the worst and 100 the best. In other words, Megadeth failed miserably.

1 Super Collider by Megadeth UMD 38
2 What The… by Black Flag SST 45
3 Authentic by LL Cool J 429 Records 46
4 In a Perfect World by Kodaline RCA 47
5 I Love You by The Neighbourhood Columbia 48
6 Moon Landing by James Blunt Atlantic 49
7 Borrell 1 by Johnny Borrell Universal 49
8 #willpower by Interscope 49
9 Hotel California by Tyga Republic 50
10 What About Now by Bon Jovi Island 50

In related news (and from more a important poll), Metacritic proper named Deafheaven’s Sunbather the Best Album of 2013. It’s the first time in history a metal band has held the distinction.
