Updated since its original episode, Dave Mustaine's crippling hand injury which threatens the bands survival, a painful lawsuit and more walkouts of band members. Now they're in the Big Four and still aiming for the top spot, but even if Dave Mustaine is happy with the new lineup he remains unhappy about their ranking in the top ten of heavy metal - still behind Metallica.
