"Breadline" is a single from American thrash metal band Megadeth's eighth studio album Risk.[1] The remix single was released in Japan as an EP.


While not necessarily a ballad, the song is a standout in Megadeth's discography because it features a considerably lighter melody than most of their work. A music video was produced for "Breadline" but does not appear on the DVD Arsenal of Megadeth.

Marty Friedman (who co-wrote the song with Dave Mustaine) covers the song on his album Future Addict. It is considerably heavier than the original.

Breadline EP[edit]

The Breadline EP was not released in America, though it does turn up occasionally in stores that stock imports. The EP is also available on the iTunes Store. It features the radio edit of the song plus five remixes. This is not to be confused with the American single release of Breadline, which only contains the radio edit and the studio album version of the song, although the cover art is identical aside from the wording.
