Extensive Definition

Breadline is single by the thrash metal band Megadeth off their album Risk. The remix single was released only in Japan.
While not necessarily a ballad, the song is a standout of Megadeth's discography in that it features a considerably lighter melody than most of their work. Its lyrics describe a poor man with no money or possessions to call his own. A music video was produced for "Breadline," which parodies the hit ABC game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?.
