How did Shawn drover join the band megadeth?
He joined like the majority of the other drummers (excluding Nick Menza and Chuck Behler, who were drum technicians avalible when Mustaine fired the then current drummer). Shawn and his brother, Glen, auditioned after The System Has Failed because Mustaine had stated that Chris Poland and the drummer at the time were just "fillers." Shawn performed on the That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires CD/DVD and the much successful Gigantour. Mustaine was impressed so he kept Shawn. However, Glen wound up leaving for family reasons after the United Abominations tour.
Although this is simply an opinion, I'd have to say that they're one of the greatest bands ever. Dave Mustaine (founder, lead vocalist, lead/rhythm guitarist, songwriter) is a… musical genius, and perhaps the most influential man in the thrash metal world. Mustaine, along with David Ellefson (bass, backing vocals) have been together (aside from a brief departure) since the 1980's, and have always released consecutive phenomenal albums, regardless of the ever-changing line-up of the rest of the band. Megadeth has gone through dozens of drummers and guitarists, but still manages to capture that thrash feel with every album they release. Megadeth is known for their politic and war-driven songs. There's never a dull moment when it comes to Megadeth, and regardless of much negative feedback from metal fans, I believe that they're simply perfect.

Dave Mustaine, and the rest of Megadeth is in no way a Satanic band. Dave Mustaine did, however, dabble into Satanism when he was very young. This was a very brief period, and… he regrets it to this day. He is now a born-again Christian, and can't even play certain songs that have to do with witchery or Satan live anymore, because of an apparent "dark aura" that surrounds those certain songs. The Conjuring (Album: Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?) is an example. Most people would assume that Megadeth worships Satan because of how heavy they are, but this isn't the case. Megadeth has numerous heartfelt songs involving Christianity, such as Promises (Album: Youthanasia) , where Mustaine sings: "I will meet you in the next life. Where we can be together. I will wait 'til then in Heaven. I promise, I promise."
There is no definite answer because no one ever asked her.
Dave Mustaine - guitar, lead vocals (1983-2002, 2004-present) . Chris Broderick - guitar, backing vocals (2008-present) . James Lomenzo - bass, backing vocals (2006-present)… . Shawn Drover - drums (2004-present)
Metallica has a wider audience nowdays. Metallica got more popular after the realse of the Black Album which gained them money like crazy. Nowdays Metallica is everywhere, by …that i mean I hear people playing or singing Enter Sandman every day. Megadeth isn't as popular as Metallica, but they have been my favorite for being true to metal for as long as I remember. Megadeth are a true Thrash Metal band... and you have to hand it to Mustaine from just getting kicked out, he started one of the greatest band in the world. Megadeth is the better band. Metallica is pretty good, but compared to Megadeth, they're nothing. Letting Mustaine go was the biggest mistake metallica ever made. Well personally i think Megadeth is better but they're both good. IMHO, Metallica is much better. Megadeth is my second favorite band of all time, but trust me Metallica is the better band. Listen to songs like Ride the Lightning, Sanitarium, Cyanide, The Four Horsemen, Fade to Black, Leper Messiah, The Shortest Straw, And Justice For All, Dyer's Eve, Battery, The Unforgiven, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Call of Ktulu, Fight Fire with Fire, etc.
Despite the fact that Dave Mustaine is a Christian, Megadeth's lyrics and themes do not deal with Christianity and thus does no make them a Christian band.
The lead singer of Megadeth is Dave Mustaine. He is also the lead and rhythm guitarist.
No, Megadeth is NOT death metal, as popularly perceived. Megadeth is a very political, social, and environmental band, and they have a lot to say. Megadeth is against war (Hol…y Wars, Ashes in Your Mouth, Architecture of Aggression), and do not much sing about death other than global governments destroying us small people, or the death of Cliff Burton--the former bassist of Metallica (In My Darkest Hour), or a dying man saying his last words (A Tout de Mond) .... very intelligent band, try reading some of their lyrics, maybe you'll all learn something.... : )

It drives cattle in to a field
Not including the covers, demos, bonus tracks, live special songs, and songs off the upcoming album TH1RT3EN, somewhere around 100 songs. However if you do include these songs…,(excluding the demos which are just Megadeth songs that sound a little different than their studio version counterpart) Megadeth has 136 songs.
In Ozzy Osbourne
In accordance to every heavy metal band on earth? Quite popular. Record sales and concert ticket sales by them surpass most metal bands these days. The only bands truly bigger… than Megadeth are Metallica, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest. Bands that are debatably bigger or about as big as Megadeth are bands like Linkin Park, System of a Down, Slipknot, MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e, and a couple others. Again, those are all debatable. As for album sales, Megadeth is in the top 5 for most albums sold by any heavy metal band. Metallica at 100 million, Iron Maiden at 85 million, Black Sabbath at 70 million, Judas Priest between 50 and 60 million, and finally Megadeth at 50 million.
